How to use Black Ops Cold War Operators in Warzone
Black Ops Cold War operators can now be used inside of Modern Warfare’s Warzone. You cannot use these operators in the Modern Warfare multiplayer.
Recently, the ability to use Black Ops Cold War operators in Warzone has been added. This is in preparation for the first season of Black Ops Cold War and the huge level system integration coming to Warzone.
Within a few weeks, we will see the convergence of the Black Ops and Modern Warfare universe with the ability to cross-progress weapons, challenges, and rank (XP/Prestige) across the two recent Call of Duty titles.
In order to set up for this, Infinity Ward has removed factions from Warzone and have added every operator into a large pool for players to choose from as their preferred drop operator for Warzone.
In order to select a Black Ops Cold War operator in Warzone, you will first need to own Black Ops Cold War and have the operator already unlocked.
Once this is done, all the operators you have unlocked in Black Ops Cold War so far will also be usable in the ‘Operators’ section in the Warzone list.
You may be using a different Activision account on your Warzone account if you’re missing your operators, or you may not have all the operators unlocked.
You can expect to see future Black Ops Cold War operators coming to Warzone as well. When the cosmetic shop drops along with COD point functionality when Season 1 begins, the packs you purchase in-game will clearly list what items and operators will be usable in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
As of writing, all launch operators are in the game. They are as follows
It is unclear if in the future the operators will be separated into tabs based on the game they came from. As of now, the Cold War operators are added into the middle of the Warzone roster.
