al asad modern warfare 2 preorder bonus leaked

Warzone’s developers teased that a familiar villain would arrive in Vanguard soon, and dataminers claim that classic baddie Al-Asad will arrive as a pre-order bonus for Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2 arrives on October 28 and the devs have been playing their cards close to their chest. However, dataminers claim to have discovered a ton of information about the game, including a campaign early access period, the maps, weapons, and more.

Even more pre-order bonuses are still to come, and it appears classic CoD villain Al-Asad will arrive in Vanguard and Warzone as a Modern Warfare 2 pre-order bonus.

Leaker Reality claims to have found that four classic CoD villains will be making their way to Vanguard and Warzone, most likely during Season 5 — Menendez, Rorke, Seraph, and Khaled Al-Asad.

The developers teased more Modern Warfare 2 pre-order bonuses are still to come, and it appears Al-Asad will be unlocked for all players who have pre-ordered the upcoming title.

Reality has reportedly been pouring through Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded‘s game files, and has discovered a string for the “Khaled Al-Asad Operator Bundle.”

This string reportedly states Al-Asad will be “free with digital pre-order of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.” There’s a short description too, stating: “The time has come to show our true strength with the Khaled Al-Asad Operator Bundle.”

If true, anyone who pre-orders Modern Warfare 2 digitally will automatically receive Al-Asad as a playable Vanguard and Warzone Operator, similar to Woods and Kinglsey ahead of their respective titles.
