Chopper Gunner is the twelve level of Call of Duty: Covert Ops. The player controls Dirk Samson as he controls a helicopter over Korea.


Samson controls a machine gun on a helicopter as Cpt. Fergerson directs the CIA team on the ground. Fergerson's squad enters a building and Samson lays supressing fire on it. After making it through the squad makes it to a park filled with enemies. Samson clears it out, and they make it through. An enemy convoy comes, and Samson takes its out. Tanks come, and Samson goes over to fire the rockets since the rocket man was killed. After destroying the tanks, the squad advances. They come to another park, and Samson kills all the RPG troopers and the rest of the Koreans. The helicopter moves.

All of a sudden, the pilot screams, and Samson goes to the cockpit. He discovers the pilot has been shot, and Samson takes control of the helicopter. He continues to support the squad, who advance through several buildings. Samson covers the squad as they advance up a street. Then, a Mi-4 comes and begins to engage Samson's copter. Samson takes it out, and another one comes. It nearly destroys the helicopter but Samson knocks it out. Samson heads toward the landing zone.

Samson begins to fire on the Koreans who are holding the zone. After clearing it out, a squad of MiG-15s come and send Samson's helicopter in a deathspin. Samson uses an ejection seat to escape the helicopter, and touches down into a nearby woods crawling with North Korean troops.
