König is an Operator of the KorTac faction featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0.

Biography[]

König suffered from severe social anxiety throughout his life, often being bullied during his childhood. At the age of 17, he volunteered for the military.

While he hoped to join as a recon sniper, his physical size and his inability to stay still made him an unsuitable candidate. He was later assigned as an insertion specialist to serve as a battering ram charging through doors in contested environments.

During a mission, König took down an Al-Qatala cell in Berlin which was involved in human-trafficking. He breached the townhouse and eliminated all twelve AQ fighters inside. However, his sniper hood terrified the Urzik hostages who had to be convinced by the rest of his team to follow König to safety.

By 2022, König became a contractor for the KorTac private military company.

Trivia[]

General[]

  • König means "King" in German.
  • König was first revealed as Austrian and a member of the Jagdkommandos[3] but his Operator bio originally listed him as a German and member of the Bundeswehr's Kommando Spezialkräfte. Following the Season One update, König was once again Austrian and all mention of the Kommando Spezialkräfte was removed with Season Two.
  • In the Multiplayer Open Beta, König was in the SpecGru faction.
  • König is referred to as kilgore in the game files. Interestingly, one of the cut operators from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was called "Kilgore".
    • König default skin was also called "Kilgore" until the release of Season Three.
  • König's "Biohazard" skin is based on the outfit of the Chemist, with a different color palette. This outfit can be unlocked via the Weapon Cases that the DMZ bosses drop, including the Chemist.
  • The name and unlock requirements of König's "Anonymous" skin are a reference to a quote from the real-world hacktivist group Anonymous, which states "We are Anonymous. We are Legion".
  • When scoring a longshot kill with a Sniper Rifle, König will sarcastically say "And they said I couldn't be a sniper...", a reference to his rejection from the position of recon sniper.
  • Close inspection of König's mask textures will reveal that it is made from a t-shirt.[4]
  • König's "Deep Lord" skin features the logo of Zakhaev Arms.
  • König's bloodtype is AB- as seen on his "The Wolf" skin.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III[]

  • König's "Vapor" skin was initially exclusive of Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile as part of an Event Store during the Modern Warfare II Season Five Event Store.
    • Despite being "Designed for MWII" in Warzone Mobile, the skin is not available in Modern Warfare II.
