The final season of Warzone and Vanguard is officially underway. Although the focus is already switching to the launch of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, there's still plenty of content arriving to multiplayer and the current version of the battle royale. Alongside the EX1 energy rifle and RA 225 SMG, there are a number of legendary Call of Duty villains making a return.

In addition to Menendez from the Black Ops series, Khaled Al-Asad from Modern Warfare is also arriving as part of the Season 5 update which is fitting considering what the next annual release is going to be.

How to unlock Al-Asad

Just like many Call of Duty Operators that arrive once the new season has started, the process of unlocking Al-Asad is incredibly straightforward.

With no need to rank up the battle pass, there are two options you can use to unlock Al-Asad. The first involves pre-ordering the Vault Edition of Modern Warfare 2 while the second, and cheaper, option involves spending some COD Points.


Al-Asad Operator bundle price

Unlike many bundles, there's no need to spend any COD Points on the Al-Asad. Instead, you'll need to part ways with £99.99 for the Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition which also comes with a cosmetic bundle with 12 different versions of Ghost.

For those wanting to spend COD Points instead of pre-ordering the most expensive version of Modern Warfare 2, simply head to the Store tab on Warzone or Vanguard and press the Purchase button. Once unlocked, everything will appear in your inventory.


Al-Asad Operator bundle content

In addition to Al-Asad, the bundle will contain plenty of cosmetic items for you to use in multiplayer and the battle royale. Expect an exclusive weapon blueprint to appear alongside the usual batch of themed Calling Cards, Emblems, Weapon Charms, Stickers, and Watches.

Once we hear more on the bundle, we will update the guide.


Is the Call of Duty Al-Asad bundle worth buying?

If you're a fan of the Modern Warfare series, the Al-Asad bundle is definitely worth purchasing but if you're already looking ahead to the launch of Warzone 2, it's probably worth saving your COD Points to spend on an all-new set of Operator skins.

All cosmetic items from the current version of Warzone won't carry over into Warzone 2, so bear that in mind before purchasing this particular bundle.
