Introducing Jackal: A brutal mercenary leader with ties to Perseus, ready for action in Season Four

After grinding his competition into the dirt, Jackal emerged from obscurity to aid Perseus in de-orbiting and crashing CIA satellites in Verdansk and Algeria.

Available now in Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone™, Jackal joins the Warsaw Pact via the Season Four Battle Pass. Read on to learn more about Jackal’s brutal path to becoming a Perseus agent, plus details on the first-ever Ultra-rarity Operator Skin unlocked at Tier 100.

Meet Jackal

Meet Jackal

Full Name: Owethu Mabuza
Date of Birth: 04/18/1955
Nationality: South African
Birthplace: Mbombela
Faction: Warsaw Pact
Blood Type: O–
First Language: Swati
Service: Perseus

Rumors surrounding Jackal’s origins are few and far between, and those who know are smart enough to keep their mouths shut. This is one man you don’t want to cross.

What we do know is frightening. The feared leader of a mercenary company, Owethu “Jackal” Mabuza worked tirelessly to expand his reach through brute force, directly attacking and annihilating competing rival paramilitary groups. Following each group’s defeat, he would then recruit the strongest survivors and execute the rest.

Judging by the weaponry now at his company’s disposal, it’s clear he has acquired some very deep funding. His next mission as a Perseus agent: downing CIA satellites that are disrupting Stitch’s grand plan.

With no patience for weakness, Jackal is relentless in his pursuit of power, becoming equally hated and feared as he does whatever it takes to win the largest contracts.
