Warzone Operator Nikolai – How To Unlock This Modern Warfare Veteran?

Weapons aren’t the only unlockables in Warzone, Operator Nikolai is another unlockable you might be struggling with! Here’s how to unlock Captain Price’s best Russian.

Getting bored of Mil-Sim skins? You and me both. Luckily, if you’re looking for a little more SAS in your Warzone life, Modern Warfare has the answer. In Multiplayer, you can choose a favourite faction and increase your odds of playing as either the Coalition or the Allegiance. However, in Warzone, you have a little more free reign with who you’re playing as. That makes picking the right operator all the more important. If you’re not a fan of Yegor, for example, you don’t want to listen to him the whole time!

Here’s a little bit about Nikolai, to get you acquainted: 

Nikolai is the leader of the Chimera, a PMC within the Allegiance. A long-time friend to Captain Price, Nikolai initially worked with Price, Kamarov, and Kate Laswell to build the Armistice to stop the rise of a new AQ. After the Armisitice collapse, Nikolai now takes the battle in his own hands to stop Zakhaev. 

Nikolai’s biography

Warzone Operator Nikolai Is A Tier 100 Operator

You read that right! While Farah is Season Six’s Tier 0 Operator, Nikolai sits all the way up at Tier 100. In order to unlock him, you’ll need to climb up the Battle Pass until you’re at the end. There are sometimes timed challenges which offer Tier Skips, or Store Bundles with Tier Skips in if you need a hand. He also has a few Operator Challenges that can be completed for alternate appearances.

As with every Operator, there is an alternative way to unlock them. All you have to do is acquire a skin for that Operator, whether that be from a Battle Pass Tier or from a cosmetic pack in the Store.
