As the Modern Warfare 2 release date nears, many are still waiting for information on what Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer has to offer.

The launch of Modern Warfare 2 is just a few months away much to the excitement of players looking forward to Infinity Ward's latest release. As leaks continue to unveil information on what multiplayer has in store, fans are getting an idea of which Perks, guns, and Field Upgrades will appear.

With a new game, there's a high chance plenty of new faces will appear during the beta and in the final multiplayer build.

As we head nearer to the game's release, we will update the article with the latest information as soon as it becomes available.

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:

  • Task Force 141/Coalition
  • Allegiance
  • Demon Dogs
  • Al Qatala
  • Cartel (Name Unknown)

How Many Operators are In Modern Warfare 2?

At the time of writing (July 18, 2022) the number of Operators in Modern Warfare 2 is unknown. Considering Vanguard features a total of 18 Operators, the amount of Modern Warfare 2 Operators should contain a similar amount, if not more.
