Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Pre-Orders are live

Activision revealed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and it arrives on October 25, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Activision followed up the announcement with new information on the game, and that Pre-Orders are live now.

I was playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare this afternoon and discovered that the PlayStation Store launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare marketing everywhere… I screengrabbed a few images before making this article, but then I discovered that Activision made a post about it, too.

Now, let’s get into what Operator Packs are…

Since there are no specialists, you’re now presented with customization skins, and weapon variants. Each Operator has their own names, and their own background bio. They are really pulling all stops to making sure this is a very deep game…

“All Ghillied Up” Operator Pack

Named for the infamous flashback campaign mission in the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, where you, playing as Lieutenant John Price (prior to being made Captain), must utilize camouflage and sniping tactics as you encroach the outskirts of the Ukranian city of Pripyat.

  • 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.

“Crew Expendable” Operator Pack

Paying homage to the second campaign mission from the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, where you, playing as Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish, board an Estonian ship in the Bering Strait, as part of a clandestine raid by British Special Forces in an attempt to locate and obtain a rogue nuclear device.

  • 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.

“War Pig” Operator Pack

Sharing the name with the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare mission where you, playing as Marine Sergeant Paul Jackson, lead a charge to push back an enemy counterattack and secure a tank (the “War Pig” in question).

  • 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.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Blizzard’s Battle.net service on October 25, 2019.
