Russman is a playable character in the Zombies game mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.


Russman was an agent from Broken Arrow before the Zombies incident. Around the time, he became homeless and travelled around the world. At some point, he met Samuel Stuhlinger and from that point on, both travelled together.

Russman later commandeered a bus driven by a robotic driver, to a town in Hanford, where he and Samuel met Misty and Marlton. It was here that the four characters were contacted by Dr. Ludvig Maxis who instructed them to activate the Pylon tower in Hanford which acts as a polarization device. At the same time, Samuel was contacted by Edward Richtofen, telling him to activate the tower with his own methodology for unknown purposes.


Russman takes an appearance of an elderly African-American man. He has white hair, wears a brown coat and jeans. He also wears a boot on one foot and a sneaker on another. 


Russman is a spiritual person, believing certain things to be a bad omen and referring to some things as the work of the devil. He is pessimistic and grumpy a lot of the time, and seems to despise Marlton greatly. He pities Samuel and often gives support. Russman also suffers from memory loss as demonstrated in the opening cutscene of Buried.
