Operator Skins Guide


Both Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and its battle royale component Warzone offer a range of customization options from gun camos to player cosmetics. The player cosmetics are called Operators. Each Operator skin comes with a different character model, unique dialogues and finishing moves (more on that below).

Note that these cosmetics are purely for decorative / visual purposes and often bragging rights! They do not give any added advantage during your gameplay. There are two main factions in the game, the Coalition and the Allegiance. Both factions include a variety of Operators to choose from and you can choose any one of the factions to play with.

In the regular Multiplayer version of the game (i.e. Modern Warfare), choosing a faction will increase your chances of being put into that particular faction when a match starts, such as Ground War. However, it is not the same in Warzone and choosing a faction is irrelevant since everyone has different skins. Remember, the use of these operators are just for aesthetic purposes.

TOP GAMEPLAY HIGHLIGHTS & GUIDES

There are two main types of skins - Mil-Sim which are the default real-world inspired Operator skins (i.e. military simulator) and in-game character skins. These are available for both factions with the exception of Mil-Sim skins for the Allegiance faction. There are no Mil-Sim skins for Allegiance faction as of today.

Unlocking Operators

Those who own the full version of the game (i.e. Modern Warfare) have the exclusive advantage of some Operators being completely free since they are unlock by completing certain Campaign Missions and Co-Op missions.

Warzone players have a number of different options to unlock operators though. You can: (1) acquire Operator skins through the in-game Store; (2) complete Battle Pass challenges; or (3) acquire additional skins for Operators which will automatically unlock the base version of the Operator. You can acquire a skin by obtaining a skin variant of any one of the Operators through Battle Pass (that is, if there is any skin variant available on one of the tiers).

For example, the Mara Operator was available upon purchasing the Season 1 Battle Pass. However, since Season 1 is finished, Warzone players can easily get it now by buying Battle Pass Season 3 and upgrading to tier level 90 in order to acquire a Death Dealer Rare Mara Skin. Obtaining this skin will automatically unlock the Mara Operator as well. So we think it's safe to say that Warzone-only players are not missing out on any of the Operators, as long as they are able to acquire a skin for an Operator.

Unlocking Operators through doing certain Co-Op challenges and campaign missions is only possible for those who own the full version of the game, Modern Warfare, but as stated above, free Warzone players can always acquire a skin to unlock those Operators.

Operator Skin Variants and Rarity

All the Operators have different skins that can be acquired through Battle Pass or by completing different challenges. You can change the skin of your Operator by going to the "Customize" option when you have an Operator highlighted. Below you can see some of the skins for Operator Thorne.

Just like the Weapons, these Operator Skins also hold rarity levels depicted by color. The rarity levels in order of increasing rarity are Common (Gray), Uncommon (Green), Rare (Blue), Epic (Purple) and Legendary (Orange).

For some skins you will need to complete missions. You can see the mission details for the skins which will take you to the "Operator Missions" section detailing all the objectives that you need to compete in order to unlock that specific skin for the Operator.

Finishing Moves

There are different Finishing Moves available for each Operator. These Finishing Moves are basically execution methods which can be performed by holding down your melee button when you sneak behind your enemy.

When you execute a Finishing Move, an animation plays out showing you taking out the enemy player. If you are playing online and perform a Finishing Move, it may be interrupted by another player if you get shot during an animation.

This article will be updated as more Operators are added in the future.
