Getting the Oni Operator in Modern Warfare 2

The Oni Operator is a PlayStation-exclusive skin given only to players who preorder the game through the PS Store. Preordering MW2 will net you Oni and the “Dragonfly” high-level M4 blueprint which can be equipped through the weapon customization system.

The trailer shows a cinematic walk through chaos as Hiro “Oni” Watanabe reflects on the nature of combat. His training has sharpened him to become fear itself, and his menacing outfit will strike fear into the hearts of his foes. It’s a nice little exclusive that seems to be a nod to the mega-hit Ghost of Tsushima, and although the voice actor is unknown, the internet is convinced it’s Daisuke Tsuji, the English voice actor of Jin Sakai.

Equipping your newly earned Oni Operator skin is fairly simple. From the multiplayer menu, head on over to Operator, and Oni will be located in the same spot as in the above image. Select the skin, and you’ll load in as the Oni operator when you play MW2.

However, there has been a bug going around that prevents you from using Oni or any skins that came as a pre-order bonus. Infinity Ward is aware of the issue, and the current fix is following the below steps:

  • Go to the “Settings” tab in your PlayStation home screen
  • Select “Users and Accounts
  • Select “Other
  • Select “Restore Licenses
  • Restart your game after completing

The above process will take a few seconds to a few minutes to complete. Once that’s complete, it should fix any pre-order bonus operators that have been locked out. If it does not solve your issue, Infinity Ward is working on a fix, and your best bet will be to wait until the team figures out the problem.

That is everything you need to know on how to acquire the Oni Operator in Modern Warfare 2.

I love almost every type of video game, and when I'm not playing them, I'm writing about them... a lot. I have too many favorites to list so feel free to ask about them! Long live Ugly Sonic and the Resident Evil 3 Remake (this is a meme btw).
