Once players unlock these Operators and their corresponding skins, they can use them in MW2 Multiplayer and Warzone 2.0 when it releases.
A notable name missing from the list is Vargas, one of the members of Task Force 141. This means it will be likely that we’ll see him as the first Operator offered in the Season 01 Battle Pass.
MW2 Roze vs Warzone Roze
One name that many players may recognize is Roze, who was infamous for being a Pay-to-Win skin in the original Warzone.
Thankfully, it seems that this won’t be the case in MW2. At least for now. The biggest issue in the original Warzone was that both of her alternate skins that were later introduced were incredibly hard to see in-game.
They would blend into the shadows and give players a noticeable advantage during firefights. Roze was one of the most controversial Operators, but we have yet to see if MW2 will follow a similar suit.
