Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 5 Reloaded is bringing in a bunch of new content along with a brand new Operator. Each major season update has added to the cast of Operators within the game, ensuring that there is a playable character for every Modern Warfare fan.
While some operators are from past games, others are references to real people from across the world. It’s unknown as to what inspired Morte as a character, but he has come a long way to join Warcom fighting for the Coalition, and apparently loves spaghetti westerns, so fans with similar tastes should connect with the new Modern Warfare Operator.
Morte is a gunslinger that hails from Italy, his full name being Sergio “Morte” Sulla — a skilled tracker who loves the American Old West and its rules of right and wrong. After serving with the legendary Col Moschin paratrooper regiment in Italy, he has joined up with Warcom as a member of the Coalition. This is a brand new operator for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 5 Reloaded, and with very little known about this soldier, fans have a chance to see new and emerging faces within the Modern Warfare series.
Morte is a welcome sight in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 5 update. His default appearance has clear signs of American Western influence, with the cowboy hat and color being a callback to the old west, which has fans hoping to see western-inspired skins for the character after his official launch.
One interesting detail is his background’s reference to the Col Moshchin paratrooper regiment. This is a real regiment of the Italian army and serves as one of its primary Special Forces units. The regiment handles anti-terrorists operations and is the only regiment to participate in all out-of-area missions of the Italian Army since World War 2.
Morte’s paratrooper regiment has the same level of reverence as the U.S. Marine core does to American citizens. It’s known for taking on dangerous and difficult missions with a high success rate. To become a member of their regiment requires years of training and is only available to long-term members of the army. Fans expect references to his original regiment to be scattered across his gear and skins giving a sense of believability and realism to the new Coalition Warcom Operator.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
