It says a lot that in a Call of Duty campaign that includes the highly anticipated reunion of iconic series regulars like Captain Price, Soap McTavish, Gaz, and Ghost, the Modern Warfare 2 character seeing the most buzz is actually its most murderous villain. Valeria Garza has captured the undivided attention of the CoD community, with some already calling for her to become a playable operator(opens in new tab) in multiplayer. And, yes, it’s because people are thirsting over her.
Note: Modern Warfare 2 campaign spoilers below.
Garza is a new face in the Modern Warfare-verse—she’s the anonymous head of the El Sin Nombre cartel and ruthless ruler over the fictional town of Las Almas, Mexico (where much of the campaign takes place). She’s also ex-Mexican army and an old friend of new Team Price member Alejandro, who is understandably upset to see that she’s used her military experience to become a powerful crimelord. Garza is undeniably among the evilest characters in a roster that includes corrupt generals, PMC war criminals, and aspiring terrorists. She is also hot.
