Chaffin in the Garage in Operation Swordbreaker.
M4A1 w/ACOG scope
Private Jack Chaffin is a character who appears in the single-player campaign of Battlefield 3.
He is an American Marine from Blackburn's squad, Misfit 1-3. Not much else is known about him, but David Montes describes him as "a tough son of a bitch". One thing that could support this, is that during the beginning of the mission Operation Swordbreaker, Chaffin calls Montes a hippie for asking why they are stopping. Chaffin was hit by a PLR sniper during the mission, Operation Swordbreaker, however, Henry Blackburn managed to drag him out of the firefight. He is kept stable while Misfit 1-3 pursues the PLR forces including the sniper. He was later carried out of the area by a medical team headed by Doc Holiday, from which Blackburn and his squad provided covering fire from a rooftop.
- Chaffin's leg models are the same models seen in first-person view as Miller and Blackburn.
- If you go the other way after using a plank as a bridge and jump from buildings to buildings, and go inside a garage, you will see Chaffin, alive and well, holding an M4A1 w/ ACOG scope. Sometimes, however, he may not have any weapon at all but hold his hands in position as if he did.
- Chaffin is portrayed by Anthony Richard Denman.
- In real life, there is a Corporal James Chaffin from the same battalion. He is featured in the HBO series Generation Kill.
