Black Ops Cold War Reveals New Operator for Warzone
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has revealed the next Operator that comes to Warzone, and they’re a doozy. On Dec. 16 with Season 1, Vikhor “Stitch” Kuzmin drops in as a member of the Russian Warsaw Pact. Everything about Vikhor’s backstory seems to be gritty and hardcore, which meets what we expect of the Cold War setting. Since this is a Warzone operator, they can use whatever they find in the zone, but I wonder what the character used in the backstory.
Hey, some of us are a sucker for the plot. This is much better news than yesterday’s story of a Call of Duty streamer shooting his gun out of a window.
Here’s What We Know
Anything we know about Cold War’s new Warzone Operator, Stitch, comes courtesy of CharlieIntel. A Russian from Moscow, born in 1938, he’s a former member of the KGB. He’s the toughest of the tough, and there’s nothing he won’t do to see a job through till the end. However, contact was made with Vikhor Kuzmin in 1970, and it revealed quite a different man than what his background suggests.
One of the most fascinating things about Vikhor Kuzmin is his appearance. The Cold War Warzone Operator known as Kuzmin is missing an eye – this is thanks to the CIA’s Russel Adler. The only visual we’ve seen of him comes from the Call of Duty wiki over at Fandom. The character’s background/service record has also been revealed.
Vikhor Kuzmin’s Service Record:
- 1959 – Graduates Mendeleev Institute of Chemical Technology – Faculty of Technology of Organic Substances and Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
- 1959 – Joins KGB Operations and Technology Directorate, assigned Laboratory 12 R&D facility.
- 1965 – Assigned to manage production facilities on ███████ ██████, reporting directly to Colonel Kravchenko.
- 1968 – Captured and interrogated by the CIA following a raid on the ███████ facility. Loses an eye to CIA Agent Russell Adler during interrogation but gives up nothing other than his name and rank. For failing to repel the CIA operation, Kravchenko has him stripped of his rank and sent to the Petropavlovsk Gulag.
- 1976 – An attack on the Gulag by a small team of unknown operatives leaves many guards and prisoners dead. In the aftermath, he is discovered to be missing.
This is one of the things we love about Call of Duty Warzone. The Black Ops Cold War Warzone Operators have such fascinating, deep backgrounds. They fit into the game mode we’re playing, plus they look amazing. While all we’ve seen of Stitch is his face, he looks like a no-nonsense, cold-blooded monster. That’s what we’re looking for in our Warzone characters. Further details about Stitch are on CharlieIntel, and we’re glad that they and other Cold War fans cracked the hidden code to unlock this information.
