These four characters are notorious in the Call of Duty community and are the main antagonists in their respective previous titles in the franchise. Here's a look at these characters' histories and the reasons behind their infamy in the game's lore.


1) Raul Menendez

Raul Menendez is the main antagonist of Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Born in Nicaragua in 1963, his childhood was spent looking at the brutal revolution of the American-backed Contras in his country.

Later, he and his father founded the Menendez Cartel, but the CIA assassinated the latter at the height of its power.

But it was the death of his sister, Josephina, that led to the further events of Black Ops 2, in which he was finally either killed or captured at the end by the main protagonist, Alex Mason.

He is one of the most ruthless villains in the Call of Duty franchise, and the user base will be excited to see him come back in the series as the leader of Task Force 010: Tyrants.


2) Khaled Al-Asad

Khaled Al-Asad is the secondary antagonist of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered. Born in 1963 in the Middle East, he rose through the ranks of OpFor to become the main commander of the faction.

During this time, he met the ultranationalist leader Imran Zakhaev and became one of his 'Four Horsemen,' ranking only below the infamous Vladimir Makarov.

Al-Asad, with the help of Zakhaev, was also responsible for the overthrowing and eventual execution of president Yasir Al-Fulani in a violent coup d'Γ©tat. He was eventually cornered and killed in Azerbaijan by British SAS forces led by Captain John Price.

Gamers will be excited by his return to the franchise as a playable operator in Task Force 010: Tyrant.


3) Gabriel T. Rorke

Born in 1974, Gabriel T. Rorke, the main antagonist of Call of Duty Ghost, graduated from the US Naval Academy and rose to become a captain in the Marine Corps. He later became the commander of Ghosts, an elite unit of operators from the USA.

However, he was captured by the Federation during the disastrous yet successful assassination of General Diego Almagro.

After his capture, his loyalty towards the US was tortured and brainwashed away by the Federation, and he began to hunt his former Ghost companions.

Rorke is one of the series antagonists who don't die at the end of the game, and his final fate remains unknown to players. However, they will now be able to get their hands on him as a playable operator in Call of Duty as a member of Task Force Tyrants.


4) He 'Seraph' Zhen-Zhen

He 'Seraph' Zhen-Zhen first appeared in the Call of Duty franchise in Black Ops 3 as a playable specialist. Born in 2027, Seraph grew up in the Singapore quarantine zone as the daughter of a high-ranking official in 54 Immortals.

She quickly grew among the ranks of the syndicate and rose to become the youngest Enforcer in their history.

Seraph is very dedicated to the cause of 54 Immortals, which showed during her promotion as an Enforcer in which she amputated one of her hands in honor of receiving a cybernetic arm from 54 Immortals.

This character will now make her appearance in Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard as a playable operator in Task Force 010: Tyrants.


These four people are the new antagonist operators that will be added to Call of Duty Warzone with the Season 5 patch. Together, they will form the villainous Task Force Tyrants that gamers must deal with.
