There are 38 Operators in total. In Modern Warfare 2, these are split across two teams called SPECGRU and KORTAC. You'll have access to some of them when first loading into Modern Warfare 2, but most will need to be unlocked by playing the game, or by purchasing seasonal Battle Passes.

Here's how to unlock all Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 Operators including Ghost, Soap and Price.

Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2 Season 3 Operators

There's two new Operators that have been added to Modern Warfare 2 as part of the Season 3 update. They're called Alejandro, and Valeria, and can be unlocked by purchasing the Season 3 Battle Pass.

How to unlock Soap, Farah, Ghost and Price Operators

If you've loaded up Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer, you will notice that Farah, Soap, Price and Ghost are all available as Operators. There is a catch however, as you'll only have access to them if you have the Vault Edition of the game.

The Operators are included in the Red 141 Team Operator Pack. This is...pretty pricey, bundling a bunch of exclusive skins and Operators. It's possible that these Operators will be available for all players later down the line. But for now, buying the Vault Edition is the only way to get them.

The release of Warzone 2.0 is here! If you want to put together a strong arsenal, we explain the Warzone 2.0 best guns, plus how to forge a solid M4 loadout, Kastov 762 loadout, FSS Hurricane loadout, FTAC Recon loadout, VEL 46 loadout, Lachmann Sub loadout, Victus XMR loadout, SP-R 208 loadout and M16 loadout.
