Call of Duty Vanguard Operators could include Captain America, Indiana Jones

Call of Duty Vanguard is potentially adding two movie icons to its list of multiplayer Operators. Dataminers continue to scour through the latest CoD, searching for game files that may hold clues as to what content Activision and Sledgehammer have in the pipeline.

One interesting find comes via Twitter, with ModenasHD sharing artwork said to be ripped from Call of Duty Vanguard’s data files. It names both Captain America and Indiana Jones, accompanied by the artwork seen below. These leaks have also been shared by series insider, Tom Henderson.


“S4” refers to Vanguard with “AH” or “American Heroes” potentially being a name for the supposed upcoming event.

Call of Duty is no stranger to movie tie-ins. With the series more popular than ever, we’ve seen cameos including Rambo, Judge Dredd, and Die Hard’s John McClane added to Warzone.

On one hand, Cap and Indy seem like a great fit as both heroes have storylines entrenched in World War II. However, given that Vanguard is an 18-rated video game, we’re curious as to whether the Disney-owned characters themselves will be making an appearance as Operators, or just themed cosmetics such as player cards and emblems.

Call of Duty Vanguard Operators are basically characters/avatars, each with their own progression track and challenges. They are purely cosmetic and confer no gameplay advantage.

There’s little else to go on besides what dataminers have been able to pull. That said, an event like this would be an opportune way for Activision to promote the next season of Call of Duty Warzone, warping players back to the 1940s with a brand new Pacific map. This will arrive on December 2nd, with season one of Vanguard kicking off on the same day with new content and a fresh battle pass.

In our Call of Duty Vanguard review, we scored the sequel a heroic 9/10:

The stars have aligned for Call of Duty: Vanguard. For the first time, this truly feels like a full package without any caveats. Sure, some parts are naturally stronger than others but there isn’t a weak link in sight. After back to back triumphs, Call of Duty is now on a killstreak.

Call of Duty Vanguard is out now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
