July 17, 2023: Season 4 Reloaded is underway and we've got all the intel on each MW2 Operator available in multiplayer.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 4 is well underway. Alongside new guns, new Modern Warfare 2 Operators will make their multiplayer debut for the latest seasonal update.

Since arriving in 2019's Modern Warfare, Operators have become a staple of the franchise. Alongside campaign characters, new additions often appear at the beginning of a new season thanks to the Battle Pass. With Season 4 Reloaded here and attention turning towards Season 5, new characters are bound to appear.

There's a huge number of Operators to choose from in 2022's Modern Warfare 2. Whether it's Soap, Price, or Ghost, there are numerous characters you can choose from.

Judging by the lack of 141 members, we assume the KorTac faction are the bad guys. Either way, the visuals of each Operator look great and are bound to prove popular.

Modern Warfare 2 Operator factions

With the vast majority of Operators featuring some kind of backstory, many will arrive as part of a faction similar to 2019's Modern Warfare. Considering Graves will appear in the campaign as the owner of Shadow Company, meaning the group will be one of many factions arriving over the course of the game cycle.

Alongside Shadow Company, here are some of the other factions we expect to see:

  • SpecGru
  • Shadow Company
  • Al Qatala
  • Red Team 141
  • KorTac

As the game cycle progresses and more raids launch, we expect more factions such as Shadow Company to appear in some capacity. Once we hear more intel, we'll update the list with all the Modern Warfare 2 factions.
