Modern Warfare players disappointed with Soap Operator after long wait

The new Soap Operator is officially out for Modern Warfare and Warzone, but some players aren’t satisfied with the way he looks.

Published

modern warfare soap

Modern Warfare and Warzone players have finally been gifted the long-awaited Soap Operator, but some believe it doesn’t quite look right.

As well as the new CX-9 SMG and Mace, players have been enjoying Warzone and Modern Warfare in 2021.

For those who like the cosmetics, you may have been waiting for the new Modern Warfare Soap operator to drop. However, players don’t seem to be satisfied with it.

modern warfare soap operator

Reddit user oBeruno put a post up showing the issue with the new Modern Warfare Soap operator, stating, “Insert shampoo/detergent joke here.”

Ultimately many think that the new Modern Warfare Soap operator looks nothing like the original Soap from the original Modern Warfare series and wished he had a more similar look from the past.

The developers have either reworked the character and decided to change his appearance, or they have genuinely tried to recreate the classic Modern Warfare character and it just has not sit well with a large portion of the Call of Duty community.

When compared to the original Soap, they do genuinely look nothing alike, and you can see why people are jokingly calling this new Soap operator “shampoo/detergent.”

Players in the comments carried on the joke as well, with some saying: “That ain’t soap that’s deodorant.” Some were genuinely confused, asking: “That’s actually supposed to be soap?…”

Ultimately we think players are just dissatisfied with the detail in the character model, as the original Modern Warfare Soap has way more detail and depth, with a scar on his eye and a more recognizable face.

It’s a shame players aren’t happy with the new Modern Warfare Soap model. Hopefully, the developers can do something about it and give players more of a reason to buy the new operator.

For more on Modern Warfare and Warzone, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out how you can unlock the new CX-9 SMG and how players are calling for the White Phosphorus killstreak to be removed or buffed.

Best CX-9 loadout for Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 4

Here are the best attachments and Perks you can run with the highly-anticipated CX-9 SMG in Warzone and Modern Warfare.

CX-9 SMG in Modern Warfare and Warzone

The long-awaited CX-9 SMG has finally arrived in both Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 4, so here are the best loadouts and Perks to use with it in each game.

The CX-9 was leaked alongside the Sykov Pistol, with players being able to unlock the weapons in both private matches and even Warzone. Devs teased the CX-9’s arrival in both the Payload gameplay trailer and Season 4 Reloaded patch notes, and now it’s arrived.

Players feared the CX-9 would be the next overpowered weapon, but devs have brought it in line with the Season 4 meta. It’s still extremely powerful in both Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer and is well-worth unlocking.

Here are the best attachments and perks to run with the CX-9 SMG in both Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer.

Best Warzone CX-9 loadout

Best Warzone cx-09 loadout

Best Warzone CX-9 attachments

  • Barrel: CX-38S
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: CX-FR
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Drums

The CX-9 SMG is great in those close-quarters engagements, but due to the random nature of Warzone, we’ve built it to be a little bit more versatile.

To start, the CX-38S barrel has two major benefits. It’s already got a Monolithic Suppressor attached, which frees up a slot, and it improves almost every aspect of the weapon. You’ll see the CX-9 has a more effective range, recoil control, and your shots will be hidden from the minimap.

Next, we’ve added the Tac Laser and CX-FR stock. Your CX-9 will now be much quicker, allowing you to snap onto enemies even if they take you by surprise.

The Merc Foregrip is always a solid choice for Modern Warfare SMGs, as it improves both recoil control and hip-fire accuracy. And finally, the 50 Round Drums will allow you to down and kill multiple enemies without having to reload.

Best Modern Warfare CX-9 attachments

  • Barrel: CX-38S
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: CX-FA
  • Ammunition: 30 Round Mags
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

This CX-9 is built almost purely for speed, but with a larger magazine and longer barrel for taking out targets at medium range.

To start, we’ve opted for the CX-38S barrel which improves almost every aspect of the CX-9. You’ll see a huge boost in damage range, bullet velocity, and even recoil control – while having your shots suppressed. The only downside is a slower ADS speed, which we’ll correct with the rest of the attachments.

Modern Warfare’s engagements usually take place in the confines of 6v6 maps, so you want a bit more speed with your weapon. To do this, we’ve opted for the Tac Laser and CX-FA stock. With these, your ADS speed, movement, and weapon stability will see a welcome improvement.

And finally, we’ve added the 30 Round Mags and Sleight of Hand Perk. The 30 Round Mag gives a solid boost to magazine size without slowing you down too much, and Sleight of Hand vastly increases your reload speed to keep you in the fight. If you want more bullets in your mag, you can always take the 50 Round Drums instead.

Best perks to run with the CX-9

Warzone Perks

Best Warzone CX-9 Perks

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

E.O.D will help you survive a barrage of explosives, keeping you in the fight at all times. Overkill will allow you to take the CX-9 alongside a long-range weapon such as the Krig 6, and then you can take Ghost from your next loadout to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Finally, the Amped Perk allows you to quickly switch between weapons so you’re never caught defenseless.

Best Modern Warfare CX-9 Perks

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Battle Hardened

Again, E.O.D is vital to ensuring you don’t get taken out by a well-placed Frag Grenade or Semtex. Then, the Ghost Perk will make sure you can always remain stealthy when an enemy pops a UAV.

Last but not least, Battle Hardened significantly reduces the effect of Stuns and Flashbangs, so you’re never rendered defenseless by Tactical Grenades.

How to unlock the CX-9 in Warzone & Modern Warfare

Unlock CX-9 in Modern Warfare and Warzone

The CX-9 is a Modern Warfare weapon, so you won’t be able to unlock or use it in Black Ops Cold War. Luckily, it has an easy unlock requirement: Get 2 Longshot Kills while using an SMG in 5 different matches.

Because this is Modern Warfare, you don’t need to finish the match either. You can just get two longshot kills with an SMG, back out, and repeat until you’ve unlocked the weapon.

Best alternatives to the CX-9 in Warzone & Modern Warfare

If you’re looking for another SMG in Warzone, the MAC-10 or Modern Warfare’s MP5 are regarded as the Season 4 meta SMGs.

For Modern Warfare, the MP7 remains a solid choice, or you could opt for the PP19 Bizon thanks to its large magazine size.

How to get Serac CX-9 blueprint

Players can unlock the CX-9 instantly by purchasing the Soap Operator bundle in the store for either game, which will grant you access to the Serac blueprint for this SMG.

This Serac blueprint had been previously found in the files for both games, so its debut has been long-awaited by the Call of Duty community.

Serac CX-9 Modern Warfare Warzone

The Soap Operator Bundle that contains the Serac blueprint will cost you a total of 2,400 COD Points.
