The KVA is an anti-western, Chechen eco-terrorist organization founded and led by Joseph Chkheidze (codename: Hades) and is a major antagonist faction in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. 

They are an extremist terrorist group that seeks to force the world back into its natural state and end the humanity's dependence on technology. It is the first antagonist faction that you fight until Atlas takes over later on in the game.


The KVA was founded in the year 2041 in Chechnya, Russia by former Chechen separatists that had a strong hatred for the West. Their anti-western teachings and speeches had inspired people all throughout the globe and the organization would soon quickly evolve to become one of the most violent terrorist organizations in history.

Under the leadership of Hades, the KVA would grow to become the world's leading anti-western terrorist organization and operated at secretive and asymetrical systems of attacks. The KVA launched attacks all across Europe, Russia, and other Western and non-western targets with the goal of sending humanity back to its natural state.

Events of Advanced Warfare

During the events of Advanced Warfare the KVA is first seen in the mission Traffic where they have attacked the Technology Sumit in Lagos, Nigeria and have kidnapped multple officials including Technologists and even the Nigerian Prime Minister.

Hades then executes one of the hostages and then leaves when Atlas operatives storm in and rescue the hostages and pursuit Hades and battle multiple KVA militants. On April 28, 2055 the KVA launched a massive global terrorist attack across the world, specifically nuclear power plants and destroyed them, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.

Five years later, Dr. Pierre Danois is found in Detroit and is captured by Atlas operatives and is interrogated and he finally reveals the location of Hades in Santorini, Greece where he is meeting with other possible KVA supporters and officials. Hades is then killed but reveals critical information with his dying breath and is revealed that Jonathan Irons is responsible for allowing the attacks to go into action. In the mission "Utopia", it is revealed that Atlas took down another KVA cell possibly ending the organization leading to its dissolution.
