Johnny MacTavish, also known as Soap, is a character and SASoperator of the Coalition faction featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. First mentioned at the end of the Modern Warfare campaign and heard within a Warzone cutscene, Soap was released as a playable operator on August 3rd, 2021 as part of the "Soap Operator Bundle".
Despite making no physical appearance in the campaign, he is mentioned by John Price in the game's ending cutscene as one of the few names up for consideration for the newly assembled Task Force 141.
In the cutscene for the intel mission "The War Room", he is heard communicating to Price, who had just killed Victor Zakhaev and stopped the nuke detonation, requesting backup as things at his position are “heating up". Price asks him to hold tight as he and his team jump off the dam and head towards the war-torn Verdansk.
