Modern Warfare 3 has a huge roster of Operators for players to use in-game. Here’s how to unlock them all in Modern Warfare 3.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 follows the story of MW2 (2022). Being a direct continuation of its predecessor, Sledgehammer Games has revamped the multiplayer game mode by introducing new mechanics, weapon pool, and operator roster.

Although Call of Duty is a first-person shooter title, Operators are a huge part of the player experience. It allows players to express their in-game persona by equipping the operator that suits their playstyle or aesthetic.

Modern Warfare 3 also features a vast Operator roster alongside the ones carrying forward from MW2. Here’s an in-depth look at all the operators and how to unlock them in-game.
