Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is full of cool characters, but none are cooler than the Allegiance operator known as Nikto.

First introduced in season one of Modern Warfare, Nikto immediately became a popular choice thanks to his badass appearance and cold demeanor. Over a year later, he's still widely seen online.

"Former FSB deep cover agent; captured and tortured at the hands of "Mr. Z," Nikto's in-game bio reads. "Face disfigured, diagnosed with acute dissociative disorder. Remains a methodical, calculating soldier. Reassigned to Spetsnaz to utilize skill-set."

Sounds awesome, right? Here's how to unlock Nikto so you can play as him in both Modern Warfare multiplayer and Warzone.

How to unlock Nikto in Modern Warfare and Warzone

To unlock Nikto, you need to purchase his operator bundle. To find it, go to the operator select tab in Modern Warfare and switch to Allegiance. Nikto can be found under the Spetsnaz section.
