SWAT 4: The Stetchkov Syndicate is the official expansion to 2005's SWAT simulation game, SWAT 4. In the expansion players resume the role of a SWAT commander leading a team of officers into situations where restraint and accurate police techniques garner more points than shooting everything. Like in the original game, players have a variety of restraint devices such as zip ties, flash bangs, tear gas, in addition to a variety of guns and heavy weaponry and new equipment for the expansion.

The Stetchkov Syndicate's campaign is different from the original game's in that the missions connect and lead up to a confrontation with a Russian crime syndicate, while in the original the missions were separate from each other with no common enemy.

The game has a reference to the Canadian progressive rock band, Rush. In one of the missions, the player has to go to "2112 Geddy Avenue." 2112 is a song, and Geddy Lee is the band's bassist.
