The game takes place over the course of three days in 2013, beginning in Mexico City. A U.S. spy plane carrying Guardrail IX, a device capable of disrupting wireless communications, is shot down over Nicaragua. Intelligence discovers a plot to transfer the device to rebels in Mexico City and the Ghosts are sent in to retrieve it. One of the rebels is identified as Colonel Carlos Ontiveros, son of Mexican Gen Ontiveros who was a student of Bud, Mitchell's friend and a UH-60 pilot. The mission is aborted when a coup detat begins in Mexico City and the Ghosts are ordered to the capital immediately, where a summit involving U.S. President Ballantine, Mexican President Ruiz-Pena, and an unnamed Canadian Prime Minister who are signing the North American Joint Security Agreement (NAJSA), is taking place. The summit is attacked by Mexican revolutionaries who kill the Canadian Prime Minister and force the Presidents of the U.S. and Mexico into hiding. Mitchell is sent to extract both leaders.
President Ballantine is safely evacuated to Air Force One but is unable to take off due to the danger of being shot down. President Ruiz-Pena is evacuated to the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City where a bomb destroys the embassy, but the Ghosts fend off a massive onslaught long enough for help to arrive. Ruiz-Pena allows the U.S. forces to fight the rebels and restore order. Mitchell is tasked with destroying artillery to open the road for an assault on Chapultepec, where 50 M1A2 Abrams tanks given to the Mexican government as part of NAJSA lie idle. He is later ordered to rescue the American advisory group who had been training the Mexicans in how to use them and "borrow" a few tanks.
The rebels use Guardrail IX to monitor U.S. communications and a rebel special forces group called the Aguila 7 ambush the Ghosts protecting President Ballantine. Mitchell is ordered to rescue him, which is successful, but the nuclear football is stolen by the rebels and with the Guardrail IX, the rebels are able to control U.S. ICBMs, which cause China and Russia to ready their own.
Mitchell is ordered to retrieve the Guardrail IX and the Football, but only disables the Guardrail IX. His team is then ordered to clear several blockades in Mexico City to allow U.S. tanks to pass. While being extracted, Major General Martin's UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter is shot down and Mitchell is ordered to defend him until he can be extracted. U.S. forces then begin a final push towards the Zocalo Plaza where General Ontiveros is held up inside the Palacio Nacional.
Mitchell destroys the last pieces of the Guardrail IX before sneaking into the palace. General Ontiveros is there, captured while attempting to flee. Carlos manages to escape and hijacks Bud's Black Hawk, killing Bud in the process. He flies to the wrecked U.S. embassy and begins transferring the codes for the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Mitchell and his team raid the embassy, recover the football and kill Carlos. A retired U.S. Army general who was opposed to the NAJSA is discovered to be the traitor within the U.S. government that had been assisting Ontiveros and Aguila 7 in their activities.
