This is how I would have done MW3 to make it better.
So start out the same way, in Northern India, hours after killing Shepard, with Soap critically wounded. They get help for him in village and they stabilize Soap. Makarov’s men arrive and they are forced to be extracted by Nikoli again. Meanwhile, Cpl.Dunn, Sgt.Foley, and Pvt.Ramirez fight in the battle of New York, after liberating D.C. The American victory causes Russian forces to withdraw from the U.S.
So up to this point the story is just the same, I’ve just removed Yuri and Team Metal.
Soap and Price decide to try and track down Makarov. They meet up with Remnants of the 141 in Somnolia to track down one of Makarov’s suppliers. They track him down and interrogate him, he tells them that Makarov intends to kidnap the Russian President, who plans to end the war between Russia and the U.S. Meanwhile, Sgt.Foley’s team is stationed in Hamburg, where the peace talks are to go down. Just as the Russian president arrives, Makarov’s men kidnap him. Sgt.Foley’s team attempt to stop them, but they are too late.
With no President, the Russian vice president, who thinks they can win the war, and is still angry at the Americans for the massacre in Moscow takes over. And the peace talks are cancelled. The Americans than proceed to regroup in the gulf of Finland and than start to attack St.Petersburg and participate in a fierce Naval battle. In Kazakhstan, Price, Soap and the 141 track down the Russian President. It’s a dead end, but they learn that Makarov plans to plant bombs in the capitals of certain countries and frame the U.S., and draw them into the war.
So, so far it’s still stayed mostly the same, with the differences being in the actual war
Price and Soap get in contact with Macmillan again and warn him about the attacks. Most of the attacks are averted, but bombs in Madrid, Paris, and Kiev go off. Price and Soap personally stop the bombers in Istanbul because a rumor of Makarov overseeing the operation. It turns out to be a trap, and the 141 is cornered by the police and Swat teams. In Russia, The Americans capture St.Petersburg thanks to the element of surprise, but encounter heavy resistance on the march to Moscow. Thousands of Russians regroup outside of Moscow, and it is estimated 50,000 men will die on both sides and it will just result in stalemate. Price convinces the S.A.S. (led by Macmillan from the first game) to let them go because they know where the Russian president is and can rescue him. They escape thanks to Macmillan, but are still fugitives. They track the president to a mine in Siberia and Rescue him, and return him to the government. Ending disastrous fighting outside the Kremlin.
The 141 is scattered, and Price and Soap are still considered fugitives despite their actions. After months of chasing Makarov, they corner him in a sub base in Siberia. The two infiltrate the base, kill the staff, and wound Makarov as he tries to escape. Price is wounded by Makarov, but give Soap the gun that killed Zakhaev from the first game. Makarov cracks and begs for his life, but Soap executes him. He returns to Price, who is mortally wounded, and dies. Soap exits the base, smokes a cigar and waits for whatever it to come.
Hope you guys like my story, if you don’t know what Modern warfare, look it up.
