Activision announced Alejandro and Valeria are coming to Season 3 as new operators. Valeria is a minor antagonist in the MW2 campaign, working as the leader of the Las Almas Cartel. She once served alongside Alejandro on the Mexican Special Forces.

Task Force 141 infiltrated the Las Almas Cartel mansion, and Alejandro discovered his former ally Valeria was the cartel leader. TF141 later saved Valeria from the Shadow Company after Shepard broke a deal.
