Hunter Gates was born on 19 October, 1987 in Washington DC United States . The eldest brother of Wesley Gates, the two brothers grew up together and were close. When his younger brother started fights with the toughest kids or stole from the corner shop, it was Hunter who finished the fight and took the blame for the thefts, enduring their father's belt as a result. He taught Wesley that a man must have a code to live by. He spent his teen years in the U.S Before leaving for the UK to join their military
In 2007, at the age of 20, Hunter enlisted in the British military. By 2009, he had obtained the rank of 2LT, and was promoted to LT by next year. In 2010, he was promoted to Captain. Around this time, Hunter became an operative agent for clandestine operations. During his time in the military, Hunter developed a reputation of being a type of asset that no government would ever admit to employing but they decided he was needed for the time being.
On June 19, 2015, he was made a recipient of the prestigious Victoria Cross Award due to risking his life on a mission on his country's behalf; however, Hunter chose to forfeit the award. Hunter began to earn a reputation, and an official story was created that stated that Hunter was an unstable military asset that no government would admit to hiring and that he was a necessary evil at the time.
When he was no longer needed, his superiors sent a squad of men after him in order to kill him. However, his abilities were underestimated and Hunter escaped and fell off the grid. Not unlike Wesley, he eventually became a mercenary for hire. He was later killed while on a job somewhere in Chernarus, However, the real story is Hunter had repeatedly made decisions that saved the lives of civilians and his team and was a hero in every sense of the word. However, when a top-secret black ops mission went bad, Hunter took the blame and became a criminal to cover up England's involvement.
