Farah and Nikolai are finally headed to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone

Ready for deployment at long last

Two of Call of Duty‘s finest characters – Farah Karim and Nikolai – will finally arrive as playable operators in Season Six of both Modern Warfare and its accompanying battle royale title, Warzone.

Farah made her series debut in 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. A passionate, fearless freedom fighter and founder of the Urzikstan Liberation Force, Farah has a deeply held and personal interest in seeing the toppling of the invading Russian forces. Farah is one of the highlights of the Modern Warfare campaign, and it is staggering that it has taken almost a year to see her playable debut.

A Call of Duty veteran, Nikolai has featured in multiple Modern Warfare releases. Nikolai is a Russian informant who has helped out Captain Price and his squad on numerous occasions when there was nowhere else to turn, often transporting himself right into the thick of battle at huge personal risk. Despite his common appearances in CoD lore, little is known of Nikolai’s true past and identity.


A new cinematic trailer sees Farah and Nikolai team up for a deadly stealth operation, held within a dank system of subterranean tunnels. This video also seemingly confirms the addition of a new subway system to the Warzone map, a locale that has been the subject of rumour among the CoD community in recent times.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone are available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
