After Black Ops’ divisive Specialists, many players are concerned about the reveal of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Operators has caused plenty of concern among COD fans. To help you separate fact from fiction, we’ve spoken to the devs to clarify what Modern Warfare Operators are, how they work, and all the Operators revealed so far.
The first we saw of Operators in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 was way back when the pre-orders were announced, revealing three different operators: All Ghillied Up, War pig, and Crew Expendable. Operators have a unique character model, customisation options, character dialogue, and backstory. Unlike the specialists in last year’s Black Ops 4, however, Operators will not have abilities affecting gameplay, but some will call back to classic missions from Call of Duty 4. In addition to their own look, each Modern Warfare Operator has a special execution, so if you walk up to an enemy and hold the melee button you’ll perform a special kill cinematic.
Operators are split between the two different multiplayer factions, Allegiance and Coalition, so below you can see a list of Operators for each side.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Coalition Operators
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Allegiance Operators
In addition to these 19 there are also the two default Operators. So far that’s a total list of 20 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Operators, with ten on Allegiance and ten on Coalition.
Our favourites are definitely Zane and Krueger thanks to some really rather fetching cape physics.
