The Shadow Company is a fictional PMC unit in the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, they are active in the year 2016. Being a special operations unit they are equipped with the latest weapons and equipment available. However, strangely they wear black uniforms in Afghanistan, which is an odd camouflaging choice. Also, they carry British S10 NBC respirators with them, this could be due to developers reusing the game assets.
