Amid a war of words with Microsoft over potential Call of Duty exclusivity post Activision merger, Sony Interactive Entertainment unveiled Modern Warfare 2 PS5 and PS4 exclusive content. Those who pre-order the game on Sony’s consoles will receive the Oni Operator Pack alongside early access to the beta. The Oni Operator Pack can be used in both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0.

The Oni Operator Pack can be obtained by pre-ordering a digital copy of Modern Warfare 2 on PS5 or PS4. It includes operator Hiro “Oni” Watanabe, and an exclusive Weapon Blueprint for use in both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0.
