Modern Warfare Operators: Iskra, Alex, and Ronin join the fray in Season 3

Modern Warfare Iskra, Ronin, and Alex are the three new operators joining the battle with Season 3, and while this guide explains how to unlock every operator (or specialists as they were previously known) in the game further down, let's take a quick look at the new faces. Call of Duty Modern Warfare operators are the characters you use in multiplayer - and Call of Duty Warzone - and they have unique finishing moves, outfits, and quips. Here are the three new specialists, starting with Modern Warfare Iskra.

If you've beaten the Modern Warfare campaign, you'll know that Alex didn't end up in a great way. He's still alive though because from the very start of Season 3, you get Alex in the battle pass, although he is sans a leg. He's part of the Coalition faction, while Allegiance gets a new shirtless option for Yegor.

Then there's Iskra, who we actually don't know too much about right now. She's an Allegiance fighter in the Chimera division and won't be available right at the start; she'll jump in mid-way through the season.

Ronin also won't be in the game from the get-go, but there's a little more information about him. Known as the "one man army", Ronin is allegedly "proficient in unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, and special reconnaissance." A man of many talents, it seems.
