The Embassy Mission In 'Modern Warfare' Is Inspired By The Film '13 Hours'
From Redditor u/I-Identify-Guns:
Call of Duty games have always been rife with references to war movies, and the newest iteration (Modern Warfare) is no exception. In the mission "The Embassy," the large firefight at the compound is largely inspired by 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Which, in my personal opinion, is a fantastic film.
