Call of Duty Warzone Season 6 Operators – Who is joining the battlefield?

Farah will be introduced as an instant unlock for the premium battle pass, while Nikolai will act as the final unlock for Tier 100. You can catch them in action throughout the Season 6 cinematic trailer, which also showcases some potential changes coming to Warzone’s map design.
“Zakhaev’s plan takes a turn as two familiar faces uncover more about Mr. Z’s underground network and operations in Verdansk.

In the trailer, Farah and Nikolai can be seen fighting through what appear to be subway tunnels, adding further weight to rumours that a transport system of sorts could be making its way to Warzone. Claustrophobic subway tunnels could be perfect for tense firefights in battle royale, and it will be interesting to see if it even introduces a fast travel system of sorts.
