Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is officially getting Lara Croft as an operator soon. Further pushing the Call of Duty franchise towards a Fortnite-like style game when it comes to playable characters. Although it’s nowhere near the number of skins Fortnite offers, the Call of Duty franchise is slowly but surely getting operators that are more and more wild. The most recently added operator was Nicki Minaj, following the addition of Snoop Dogg for the celebration of 50 years of hip hop.
It’s also possible for your operator to be a cat. And back during Call of Duty: Vanguard, the game had a collaboration with popular anime and manga franchise Attack on Titan, where your operator could be the Armored Titan. Earlier this year Shredder was added from TMNT. And last month there was a collaboration with The Boys tv show. Realistically, Lara Croft coming to Modern Warfare II feels more on brand and closely themed compared to some of the other operators. Lara Croft is another video game character after all, and her character is famous for wielding dual pistols in many of the older games. So the character at least fits with the theme of a shooter.
And if you pick up Lara Croft when she arrives, she can transfer to Modern Warfare III with the carry forward content.
Lara Croft will likely join Modern Warfare II with the season 05 reloaded update
Season 05 reloaded is still a little bit further out, but this is the most likely time for Lara Croft to show up as an operator. The official Call of Duty X account has already confirmed her arrival in the game. And while there’s no mention of a date, the public posting is a good indicator of Croft’s imminent arrival.
Judging from the gif image that was posted, it appears Lara Croft will be joining the Call of Duty universe in her iconic shorts and tank top, alongside the dual pistols and leg holsters. Players should expect to see a bundle with Croft show up in the near future. And expect to pay around 2,400 CoD points or more for it. As has been the case with most of these special operator bundles, there are likely to be weapons with tracer rounds in them too.
Of course, this is all speculation. But rest assured more details will pop up about the bundle the closer it gets to its release.
