Whether you’re playing as Coalition or Allegiance Forces, there’s a host of Operators to choose from. Here’s a background on all 10 available Coalition Operators.

Introducing the best in the business; the Operators of Modern Warfare.

As Mara, the newest Operator available in the Season 1 Battle Pass, takes to the battlefield, we wanted to give you an overview of all of the Operators available in Modern Warfare®.

These unique characters – each with their own backstory, nationality, character dialogue, character skins, and cosmetic customization options – have reported for duty as part of one of two opposing factions: Coalition and Allegiance. In Multiplayer, they do battle, but in Special Ops, they will have to put aside their differences and work together as part of the Armistice global taskforce.

At the main Operators menu screen, you have the option to choose either Coalition or Allegiance as your favorite faction or remain neutral and not favor a side. When you queue up into a match, your team may be chosen based on your preferred faction.  However, this may not always occur, based on available players and other game elements. If you don’t select a favorite, your faction is randomly assigned.

The Operators menu screen is also where you can preview Operators and any Operator skins you have unlocked.

You begin your Multiplayer and Special Ops career as a Default Operator for either side. This Default Operator changes its appearance based on your Loadout; for example, using a shotgun may cause your Default Operator to don a tactical vest that would be worn for a breach-and-clear mission.

While the Default Operator is pretty cool, you can unlock many of the others through gameplay challenges across all three modes, or purchase new skins for them in the Store, or by unlocking tiers in the Battle Pass.

Outside of the Default Operator, Coalition Operators fall into the SAS, Warcom, and Demon Dogs special forces.

Here’s a breakdown of all Coalition Operators, including their backstories and how to unlock them. Looking for Allegiance Operators? When Nikto arrives later this Season, we’ll introduce the Spetsnaz, Jackals, and Chimera special forces.

Note! If you purchase an Operator skin in the Store or unlock a skin in the Battle Pass the Operator automatically becomes available, even if you haven’t completed his or her associated Challenge yet.

Note! You can unlock more Operator skins in the Store, via the Battle Pass, and by completing Missions in the “Missions & Challenges” menu, as you progress through the Battle Pass.
