New Operators

The new Operators arriving in Season 3 for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 have been revealed, and they are two of the most requested campaign characters, Alejandro and Valeria. Valeria is one of the most mystical characters in the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, and her relationship with Alejandro is one of the game’s most intriguing, which may be one of the reasons why players want to see them as Operators in multiplayer and battle royale.
