Call of Duty: Vanguard Season Three brings Task Force Harpy

Call of Duty: Vanguard Season Three brings Task Force Harpy

A monstrous threat looms on Caldera, and Captain Butcher and the three members of Task Force Harpy are the first on the scene. After reclaiming Caldera through a frontal assault, the Allied soldiers discover a cache of secret prototype weapons. Following the destruction sowed by Nebula V, these new weapons raise a terrifying question: Who or what are they intended for?

Deploying in Season Three of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone, Mateo Hernandez, Florence Carter, and Kim Tae Young are prepared to face off against any threat, human or otherwise. Here’s what we know about the soldiers of Special Operations Task Force 008: Harpy.

Mateo Hernandez

Favorite Weapon: M1916 (unlocked free at Tier 15 of the Season Three Battle Pass)

Year of Birth: 1919

Mateo was born into a large Mexican-American family in Texas, dreaming of becoming a civil engineer. He joined the Navy during World War II, fighting as a tail gunner in the Pacific. After witnessing the growing prejudice and racism against his people following the war, Mateo threw himself into campaigning for his people, speaking out against injustices as well as helping reunite families across the Mexican border.

Unlock Mateo Hernandez and his two Legendary Operator Skins — “Chingon” and “Madcap” — immediately at Tier 0 through purchase of the Season Three Battle Pass. Between the mask of the grim reaper and the wild look of daring exploits, Mateo is sure to make his presence known in the battles ahead.

Florence Carter

Favorite Weapon: Nikita AVT (unlocked free at Tier 31 of the Season Three Battle Pass)

Year of Birth: 1923

Born and raised in Alabama, Florence dreamed of representing her country as a fighter pilot since she was a little girl. During World War II, she was determined to make those dreams come true, but was turned away from those opportunities due to both her gender and her race. After the war, the S.O.T.F. recognized her talent and passion for being in the sky and Florence has flown as a rescue helicopter pilot for them ever since.

Unlock Florence via the Florence Carter Operator Bundle, releasing in the Store shortly after the Season Three launch. Get her Legendary Operator Skin “Hellacious” when you purchase the Bundle.

Kim Tae Young

Favorite Weapon: H4 Blixen (arriving later in Season Three)

Date of Birth: 1928

Trained by her mother as a fighter, Tae Young donned a mask to conceal her identity while helping families cross the North Korean border to safety. She soon earned a reputation amongst the Korean people as a local folk hero and keeper of justice. Even the briefest glimpse of her Dokkaebi mask instills hope in her people and fear in her enemies.

Unlock Kim Tae Young by purchasing her Bundle arriving later in Season Three.

New 20-Level Operator Progression

Mateo, Florence, and Tae Young all feature a 20-level Operator XP progression path, including two Operator Quips, two Skins, XP bonuses, a Finishing Move, and more. Equip their favorite weapons and complete their individual challenges to rank up more quickly. Level all three Harpy members to 20 to unlock their Mastery Reward Operator Skins.

Task Force Harpy deploys in Season Three starting April 27, for use in Vanguard and WarzoneTM. With the discovery of new prototype weaponry and the approach of monstrous new enemies, you can be sure that their skills will be tested to the absolute limit. If they can’t do it, no one can.

Rise on every front.
