While Call of Duty: Modern Warfare doesn’t allow you to create custom avatars, it is giving us a collection of operators to choose from. These operators are separated into factions — the Coalition, and the Allegiance — and there is a really good diversity of people to choose from.
You can buy the operator edition of Modern Warfare that will give you some great new outfits for your operators and this is likely one of the microtransactions that will be available later on. It makes sense for you to be able to buy new outfits, and even new operators as time goes on.
Here is the current full list:
The Allegiance are the #BadGuys of the multiplayer section of Call of Duty. They are comprised of the Russian military, terrorists, and mercenaries, and they look almost exactly like the #GoodGuys. Given that operators don’t do anything different, and what “side” you are on doesn’t change anything, it’s purely an aesthetic choice which operator you choose.
The Coalition are the western forces in Call of Duty and honestly, they look just as mean and moody as the Allegience operators. I do like the amount of different people you can be in the Coalition though, there seems to be something for almost everyone.
And more to come..
While there is a diverse team of operators available — and I’m sure, many more to come — it’s a shame that none of the female operators are available when you first start the game. It seems strange to have two default characters that don’t have names, and then not let me choose what gender I want to play as.
Apart from that issue, the list of operators has a decent amount of choice for anyone you want to play as. So go, play, and show everyone your Modern Warface.
