Pre-orders for the latest installment of Call of Duty have started. As usual we have a few different editions to choose (both digital and physical). Let’s break them down so you’re not disappointed about spending your Pud money on some rapid fire, sniper shotgun.
Three Digital Editions of Call of Duty Modern Warfare will be on offer, but what one to choose… Standard, Operator, or Operator Enhanced. Right away I will clear up the only difference with buying the Operator Enhanced Edition, is 3,000 in game Call of Duty Points.
Operator Pack Overview
In the new Modern Warfare, focus is on operators rather than special abilities that affect gameplay. Each operator will have their own backstory, nationality, character dialogue, character skins and cosmetic options.
The three Operator Packs contained in both the Operator Edition and Operator Enhanced Edition gives you access to three themed Operator skins and three cosmetic weapon variants (one per Operator) With some throw backs to Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare.
“All Ghillied Up” Operator Pack
Operator Name: Grinch
Themed Operator Skin: Full sniper ghillie suit.
Cosmetic Weapon Variant: Bolt-action sniper rifle, in camouflage with additional netting and suppressor, and what seems to be coordinates scratched on the surface of the weapon above the trigger, near the bolt carrier.
“Crew Expendable” Operator Pack
Operator Name: Otter
Themed Operator Skin: Special operations with gas mask.
Cosmetic Weapon Variant: Short-barreled pump-action shotgun designed “for close encounters”; in fact, the phrase is scratched into the stock. The weapon also comes with oil and surface markings.
“War Pig” Operator Pack
Operator Name: Wyatt
Themed Operator Skin: Ground infantry Desert camouflage with tac vest.
Cosmetic Weapon Variant: Pistol with a lightweight custom trigger, flared magwell, grip with custom stippling, accessory rail (for mounting lasers or flashlights), and “War Pig” etched into the slide.
