The skin of the iconic Call of Duty character Captain Price has been leaked early ahead of his introduction to Modern Warfare and Warzone’s Season 4 as a playable Operator.

Captain Price is one of the most recognizable characters in the Call of Duty franchise and players have been eagerly awaiting his return to multiplayer since he was revealed to be in Modern Warfare’s campaign.

The iconic CoD figure is expected to be released in the upcoming battle pass for Warzone and Modern Warfare’s fourth season, however, a new leak has revealed the Captain’s new skin early.

One Modern Warfare fan u/buffalowings21940 shared a look at the new Operator on the Warzone Reddit, giving players an early look at what they can expect to equip in-game.

They revealed an image of what appears to be the default look for Captain Price, kitted out in standard military gear with a set of night vision goggles added to his helmet, similar to his look in Campaign mode.

As with all Operators in Modern Warfare and Warzone, it is likely that Captain Price will have numerous different outfits that players can unlock through challenges and the battle pass.

The upcoming Operator was seemingly being used by one of Infinity Ward’s developers when the skin was leaked, after fans noticed he was also equipped with an exclusive camo that is not available to the public.

There has been a lot of promotion for the upcoming character release in the new season, as Captain Price’s actor Barry Sloane has been sending many content creators such as Dr Disrespect personalized messages to hype up the arrival.

It should come as no shock that the files for the upcoming operator are already in the game, as the fourth season, along with Captain Price, was initially scheduled to be released on June 4.

After Activision had announced that they would be delaying the update to a later date, it is unclear when the new Modern Warfare and Warzone season is expected to be released.


NICKMERCS claims Warzone is “not looking good” compared to Fortnite

From Fortnite to Call of Duty: Warzone and back, NICKMERCS is as experienced in both battle royales as anyone. After jumping back into Epic Games’ iteration, he claims the third-person shooter has a serious edge over Warzone right now.

In a long overdue Fortnite return stream with SypherPK, another battle royale maestro, FaZe Clan and MFAM’s Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff got back into the groove and decided it was time to compare his favorite BR titles. Of course, with so many followers, the MFAM audience deserves an explanation for the change in content.

While the popular streamer built his following in Epic Games’ unique title, his Twitch following grew to a whopping 4.6 million followers with thanks to months spent popping off on Verdansk. Having hosted, participated, and won Warzone tournaments in that span, he’s flown into the world’s top 15 most-followed Twitch streamers.

But, with Call of Duty’s sights set on the Black Ops Cold War release, Warzone has lost some lustre and NICKMERCS has returned to the consistently-updated Fortnite. Fittingly, he proceeded to explain that those updates give Fortnite an edge over Warzone.

It took Nick some time to get used to Fortnite’s mechanics, as he and SypherPK delved into the differences between the two games’ aim assists and how exponential and linears differ between the two. Ultimately, despite the discomfort upon switching over, the BR aficionado found himself loving it.

To explain his intentions in trying Fortnite again, NICKMERCS minced no words: “Listen, the current state over on the Call of Duty side of things is not looking good. There was supposed to be a big update coming in December, we haven’t heard anything about that. Really not good.”

And then, to contrast why Fortnite feels like the superior BR right now, he couldn’t help but give props to Epic Games’ consistent content delivery: “On the other hand, for Fortnite, there’s big-time updates and map changes right around the corner before Christmas.”

Fortnite and Apex Legends follow a similar format as titles, where the game is free and updated seasonally. Warzone was Call of Duty’s successful effort to do the same, but things became complicated by BOCW’s release.

Now, Warzone’s seasonal content schedule has been disrupted by Activision’s focus on selling BOCW. The company is trying to get the best of both worlds: a free battle royale’s player base with the money of an annual title like FIFA, Madden, and NBA 2K franchises.

By putting their money into BOCW tournaments and content, CoD seems to have pushed NICKMERCS to return to a game that, distraction-free, is regularly putting out content.
