Activision have announced that the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title will feature new additions called Operators and Operator Packs.

After months of anticipation, Modern Warfare was finally confirmed to be the 2019 installment of the CoD series in a reveal event on May 30.


As part of the reveal, it was announced that MW would feature Operators, which are unique characters that each have their own backstory, nationality, character dialogue, character skins, and cosmetic customization options.

So far, there have been three Operator Packs revealed, with each Pack containing an Operator, themed Operator skin, and a cosmetic weapon variant that’s unique to that character.

The three Operator Packs are detailed below, and are all included in the Operator Edition and Operator Enhanced Edition of Modern Warfare.

ActivisionThree Operator Packs have already been revealed, each including a unique character, an outfit skin, and a cosmetic weapon variant.

“Crew Expendable” Operator Pack

  • Operator Name: Otter
  • Themed Operator Skin: Special operations with gas mask.
  • Cosmetic Weapon Variant: Short-barreled pump-action shotgun designed “for close encounters”; in fact, the phrase is scratched into the stock. The weapon also comes with oil and surface markings.

“All Ghillied Up” Operator Pack

  • Operator Name: Grinch
  • Themed Operator Skin: Full sniper ghillie suit.
  • Cosmetic Weapon Variant: Bolt-action sniper rifle, in camouflage with additional netting and suppressor, and what seems to be coordinates scratched on the surface of the weapon above the trigger, near the bolt carrier.

“War Pig” Operator Pack

  •  Operator Name: Wyatt
  • Themed Operator Skin: Ground infantry Desert camouflage with tac vest.
  • Cosmetic Weapon Variant: Pistol with a lightweight custom trigger, flared magwell, grip with custom stippling, accessory rail (for mounting lasers or flashlights), and “War Pig” etched into the slide.
ActivisionPlayers who purchase the Operator or Operator Enhanced editions will get all Operator Packs, along with a custom in-game knife and a Prestige Token in Black Ops 4.

One of the most noteworthy aspects of these new Operators is that, while they are all unique in so many ways, none of them have any special abilities that can affect gameplay.

This means that, should they be introduced as playable characters in the Multiplayer, then they could potentialy replace Specialists, which have featured in three of the last four titles.


Specialists have been a very polarizing addition to Call of Duty, especially in Black Ops 4, with many players complaining that their special abilities take the games too far away from the fundamentals of CoD.

That being said, the Multiplayer reveal is yet to happen, so no one will know for sure whether Operators will indeed replace Specialists until then. 

TreyarchMany players don’t like having Specialists in CoD, especially with how game-changing they can be in Black Ops 4.

Modern Warfare – Everything we know so far

Modern Warfare was finally announced on May 30, as fans were treated to the first ever trailer of the game. 

The release date for the game has been confirmed to be October 25, 2019, making it the second straight CoD title in a row to be released in October.

While the Multiplayer and other modes were not touched upon, the campaign was thoroughly discussed, and is expected to the most controversial CoD story to date.

It’s also been confirmed that the game will feature full cross-platform play, becoming the first ever CoD game in which players on different platforms will be able to play with each other.

Black Ops Cold War Beta players on consoles can finally change their field of view settings thanks to a welcome addition by Treyarch. Here’s everything you need to know about the new options, including what the best setting is.

Field of view options for consoles is something that fans have been asking for for a long time. Whenever a new CoD game releases, there’s always a section of PlayStation and Xbox players wondering why the option hasn’t been made available for them. It’s equally frustrating considering that the PC version of every iteration has had the options available on day one.


This is all changing with Black Ops Cold War, however, as Treyarch has confirmed that players on consoles will finally be able to adjust their field of view. For people unfamiliar with the options, this might be a bit confusing. Taking advantage of these settings, however, might end up helping your game.

What is field of view?

At its most basic form, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.


While some people might immediately say that a high field of view is automatically better, it’s important to note that the higher the field of view, the more distorted your screen will look and the smaller objects will look at a distance.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to balance you’re field of view with what your comfortable looking at.

How do I adjust my FOV settings?

In the beta, finding the FOV slider is relatively simple but in case you don’t know, here’s a quick and simple guide to figure it out.

  1. In your Black Ops Cold War Beta application, press the buttons for “Settings”
  2. Tab over to the “Graphics” options
  3. Scroll down until you see “Field of View”
  4. Adjust the slider from left to right to set to your desired setting.
The Field of View can be can be adjusted in the game settings.

What’s the ideal field of view setting?

If you’ve never played with a modified field of view before, it might be best to take things slow. Working your way up will allow you to adjust to the higher FOV so that you’re not thrown into the deep in, so to speak.

In order to have a high FOV, while making sure that you can still see enemies, it’s recommended to keep your adjusted setting at 100. While you can certainly push it all the way up to 120, the former will allow you to experience the changes without it being too difficult to see things at a distance.
