Until now, CoD lobbies didn't get much more complicated than admiring impressive customized emblems and appreciating just how many CoD players have a love affair with marijuana. Ghosts adds the ability to customize your soldier's look, but the general lack of clothing options means that everyone looks pretty much identical. Advanced Warfare bucks the trend with incredibly customizable soldiers called Operators that can actually stand out in a crowd.
Helmets, gloves, pants, exoskeletons, shirts, goggles, chest gear, boots, shin guards--just about every aspect of your character can be customized to fit your personal style. Want to be a gritty future soldier just like the dude on the box art? Sure thing. Are you more interested in flaunting a fully purple combat suit on your trooper? Go for it, provided you've acquired the rare Royal gear. You can also unlock new face designs, which have a nice variety of races for both genders. Every time you join a lobby, you're able to view all the other players' Operators. Even better, you'll be able to see how they acquired each piece of gear, so you can know what to strive for in the quest for the perfect look.
