Become the Villain as Last Stand’s Task Force Tyrants Blast into Call of Duty®: Vanguard and Warzone™

A Nicaraguan crime lord, a Middle Eastern warlord, a Marine turned against his own team, and the cybernetically-enhanced enforcer of the 54 Immortals: The Operators of Task Force Tyrants aren’t to be trifled with, and they’re seeking revenge.

Deploying in Last Stand, the fifth season for Vanguard and Warzone, Raul Menendez, Khaled Al-Asad, Gabriel T. Rorke, and He “Seraph” Zhen-Zhen are ready to bring the pain to anyone standing in their way. Meet the villains behind Special Operations Task Force 010: Tyrants.

Raul Menendez

Favorite Weapon: EX1 (unlocked free at Tier 15 of the Last Stand Battle Pass)

Year of Birth: 1963

Raul Menendez was born in Nicaragua, where his childhood was clouded by the brutal revolution of US-backed Contras. His father founded the Menendez Cartel and was assassinated by the CIA at the height of his power, leaving Raul in charge. But it was the death of his sister Josephina that focused his rage, driving him to become a hostile political activist. His charisma and ruthlessness propelled him to leadership of the social-movement-turned-terrorist-organization, Cordis Die.

First appearing in Call of Duty®: Black Ops II, Menendez orchestrated a cyberattack against automated drones, turning them against major cities across the United States and China.

Unlock the Legendary “Ivory Mystique” Operator Skin immediately at Tier 0 through purchase of the Last Stand Battle Pass. Complete the Battle Pass to earn his Ultra “Populist Revolutionary” Operator Skin at Tier 100.

Khaled Al-Asad

A person wearing a garmentDescription automatically generated with low confidence

Favorite Weapon: RA 225 (unlocked free at Tier 31 of the Last Stand Battle Pass)

Year of Birth: 1963

Khaled Al-Asad grew up in Urzikstan amid political strife. He was drawn to the words of Omar Sulaman and joined the Al-Qatala terrorist group. He was imprisoned but escaped after Sulaman’s death to take control of Al-Qatala. His leadership transformed the militants into an army as he acquired an arsenal for the invasion of Verdansk. Committed to the demise of Western power, Al-Asad launched gas attacks in Verdansk, breaking a fragile armistice between nations.

A Middle Eastern warlord and key antagonist throughout the Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® series, Al-Asad is the second of “The Four Horsemen,” outranked only by Vladimir Makarov himself.

Unlock the infamous Operator via the Khaled Al-Asad Operator Bundle, releasing in the Store shortly after the launch of the Last Stand Season.

Additionally, players who have digitally pre-ordered either the Standard (PC) or Vault Edition (PC) versions of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II will receive the Khaled Al-Asad Operator Bundle for free and will have immediate access once it becomes available in the Store, for use in Vanguard and Warzone.

Gabriel T. Rorke

Favorite Weapon: Lienna 57 (arriving later in Season)

Year of Birth: 1974

Gabriel Rorke graduated from the US Naval Academy and became a captain in the Marines. During an assassination mission in Caracas, Venezuela, Rorke braved the flooding city to locate and kill General Diego Almagro, leader of the Federation. During the chaos of his squad’s extraction, Rorke was left behind. He was found by the Federation, who brainwashed away his loyalties to the US, turning him into a man with an undying vendetta against his own.

The main antagonist of Call of Duty®: Ghosts, Rorke formerly led the Ghosts before being turned against them, paving the way for the Federation’s occupation of the United States.

Unlock Gabriel T. Rorke by purchasing his Bundle when it arrives later in Last Stand.

He “Seraph” Zhen-Zhen

Favorite Weapon: BP50 (arriving later in Season)

Year of Birth: 2027

Seraph grew up in the Singapore Quarantine Zone as the daughter of a high-ranking officer in the 54 Immortals. She honored her lineage and excelled within the syndicate, becoming its youngest-ever enforcer. She is a living embodiment of the 54I’s will, strictly quelling dissent within its ranks while projecting the syndicate’s force and ambition wherever it’s needed. Her dedication and skills are unmatched, as she proved when she willingly offered her own arm in return for the honor of receiving a cybernetic limb from the 54I.

Seraph first appeared in Call of Duty®: Black Ops III as a playable Specialist. She is utterly devoted to furthering her father’s legacy by promoting the 54 Immortals’ objectives.

Unlock Seraph by purchasing her Bundle, which arrives later in Last Stand.

New 20-Level Operator Progression

All four Operators of Task Force Tyrants feature a 20-level Operator XP progression path, including three Operator Quips, additional Skins, XP bonuses, and more. Equip their favorite weapons and complete their individual challenges to rank up more quickly. Level all four Tyrants members to 20 to unlock their Mastery Reward Operator Skins.

Task Force Tyrants begin to deploy on August 24 with the launch of Last Stand, the fifth season for Vanguard and Warzone. It’s good to be bad, and these are the worst of the worst. It’s time to get notorious.

Rise on every front.
