Black Ops Cold War: How to Unlock All Operators & Change Operator

Your Operator is the character you’ll be playing as in Black Ops Cold War’s Multiplayer and Zombies modes, as well as the more standalone Battle Royale mode, Warzone. In this guide, we’ll talk you through how to change Operator in Black Ops Cold War, as well as how to unlock all Operators.

How to Change Operator

From either the Multiplayer or Zombies menu, use RB on Xbox or R1 on PlayStation to tab over to the ‘Operators’ menu. Select either NATO or Warsaw Pact to view their respective operators.

Then it’s simply a case of selecting the Operator you’d like to use for that faction and then press A/ X to confirm your choice. You’ll know this has worked by the orange dot in the top right-hand corner of the operator’s box.

All Operators in Black Ops Cold War

Down below, you’ll find all 13 operators that players have to choose from, split between NATO (7) and Warsaw Pact (6). We’ve also listed the unlock requirements next to the unlockable operators.
