How to unlock all Black Ops Cold War Operators


A set of new operators will arrive with the release of Black Ops Cold War. To unlock them all, you’ll need to complete a set of challenges.

Operators allow Call of Duty players to use a unique character whilst playing online. These characters each have their own backstory, dialogue, and customization options. A lot of them are also rooted in the past Call of Duty game’s narratives and are recognizable faces from the franchise.

Of course, with the release of Black Ops Cold War, a new set of operators will be introduced to players. The title will provide another 15 operators at release that are split into the ‘NATO’ and ‘Warsaw Pact’ factions.

Each of the new operators will be unlocked by completing specific challenges, which you find below.

The new operators will be usable in Warzone as soon as Cold War releases.
