Now that the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 is practically here, fans of the popular first-person shooter will be getting their latest glimpses into all of the operators they can choose from. While there were a total of 23 operators available in the game during launch, those who pre-ordered the game were also able to take part in special early access to the campaign, which featured the familiar operators in Ghost, Price, and Soap.
Throughout the course of each season, however, more operators have gradually been introduced to MW2’s growing roster and there will surely be more operators that players can unlock as more chapters are introduced. As more operators are added to the game, this list will be updated to remain as accurate as possible.
