The next Operator coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been revealed as Russian Warsaw Pact member Vikhor ‘Stitch’ Kuzmin, coming to the game at the start of Season 1 on December 16.
Season 1 has been delayed slightly from its initial December 10 release date, while Treyarch makes sure everything is up to scratch and ready to go on launch day, and we know some details about what’s coming.
We are already aware that some maps will be coming to the game, including a remake of Black Ops 2’s Raid, as well as a “new classified Warzone experience,” but some stuff has still been kept under wraps.
One of these things is the newest Operator set to grace Black Ops Cold War and, probably, Warzone when it’s integrated in Season 1.
Now, though, thanks to a website found while doing a new Call of Duty quest, we’ve discovered that Stitch is to be the next Operator — and he looks like one of the most hardened members of the Operator roster.
Discovering a unique URL, CharlieINTEL visited 673763436741.com and managed to crack the codes, which led them to all of this information regarding the new character. Here’s what we know about him so far.
Vikhor ‘Stitch’ Kuzmin
- DOB: 08/14/1938
- Nationality: Russian
- Birthplace: Moscow
- Faction: Warsaw Pact
- Blood Type: B+
- First Language: Russian
- Service: Ex-KGB
- 1959 – Graduates Mendeleev Institute of Chemical Technology – Faculty of Technology of Organic Substances and Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
- 1959 – Joins KGB Operations and Technology Directorate, assigned Laboratory 12 R&D facility.
- 1965 – Assigned to manage production facilities on ███████ ██████, reporting directly to Colonel Kravchenko.
- 1968 – Captured and interrogated by the CIA following a raid on the ███████ facility. Loses an eye to CIA Agent Russell Adler during interrogation but gives up nothing other than his name and rank. For failing to repel the CIA operation, Kravchenko has him stripped of his rank, and sent to the Petropavlovsk Gulag.
- 1976 – An attack on the Gulag by a small team of unknown operatives leaves many guards and prisoners dead. In the aftermath, he is discovered to be missing.
Initial contacts made in 1970 revealed a broken man questioning his loyalties to a state that had abandoned him. Driven by a burning hatred for Russell Adler, the CIA agent that had taken his eye and cost him everything – as well as of his former commanding officer, Kravchenko – he was open and receptive to our vision for Greater Russia.
His singular drive will make him an excellent asset, and his first-hand knowledge of Project Nova will be invaluable in achieving our goals.
That’s what we know about the Operator so far — we haven’t yet got to have a peek at what exactly Stitch will look like, but he sounds particularly intimidating, and could definitely sway some players away from their favorite Operators in the game.
Stitch is expected to incorporate seamlessly into Warzone alongside all of the current Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare Operators, so expect to see a scary new face in Verdansk, too, on December 16.
