Modern Warfare® Beta Boot Camp: A Look at the Operators on Deck

Whether you’re playing as Coalition or Allegiance Forces, there’s a host of Operators to choose from. Here’s a first look at the Operators you’re likely to see during the Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® Beta.

Pick a side!

A host of unique characters, each with their own backstory, nationality, character dialogue, character skins, and cosmetic customization options, are available to choose from prior to each Multiplayer match.

These individuals are known collectively as Operators, and fight for one of two opposing factions: Coalition and Allegiance. You begin your Multiplayer career as a Default Operator, but you’re soon able to unlock additional specific Operator characters in a number of certain ways.

Within either faction are distinct special forces teams that individual Operators belong to:

Currently, the Coalition faction can unlock and choose Operators from SAS, Warcom, and Demon Dogs special forces.

Currently, the Allegiance faction can obtain and pick Operators from Spetsnaz, Jackals, and Chimera special forces.

At the main Operators menu screen, you have the option to set either Coalition or Allegiance as your favorite faction, or remain neutral and not favor a side: As you Matchmake, if you made a preference the game attempts to start you with your preferred faction. This may not always occur, based on available players and other game elements. If you have no favorite, your faction is randomly assigned.

As you unlock Operators, you are also able to Preview them in their combat attire, as well as changing their appearance by picking a number of Operator Skins, which are unlocked in a number of ways. As Geoff Smith, Multiplayer Game Director explains: “We have these Operators and when you start the MP game, you have one of two default soldiers. Then you can start unlocking these specific, named Operators, and we’ve got a number of skins for them. These Operators are cosmetic, but they do have a unique execution, their own voice and personality, and we also wanted to have a strong cross-section of nationalities as well as both male and female operators.”
