It says so much that in a Name of Responsibility marketing campaign that features the extremely anticipated reunion of iconic sequence regulars like Captain Worth, Cleaning soap McTavish, Gaz, and Ghost, the Trendy Warfare 2 character seeing probably the most buzz is definitely its most murderous villain. Valeria Garza has captured the undivided consideration of the CoD group, with some already calling for her to change into a playable operator in multiplayer. And, sure, it is as a result of individuals are thirsting over her.

Be aware: Trendy Warfare 2 marketing campaign spoilers under.

Garza is a brand new face within the Trendy Warfare-verse—she’s the nameless head of the El Sin Nombre cartel and ruthless ruler over the fictional city of Las Almas, Mexico (where a lot of the marketing campaign takes place). She’s additionally ex-Mexican military and an outdated good friend of recent Group Worth member Alejandro, who’s understandably upset to see that she’s used her army expertise to change into a robust crimelord. Garza is undeniably among the many evilest characters in a roster that features corrupt generals, PMC battle criminals, and aspiring terrorists. She can also be sizzling.

You might chalk up Garza’s recognition to her look (and judging by fancams already cropping up on TikTok it is definitely an element), however it’s kind of deeper than that. Regardless of solely showing in a single mission and some cutscenes, Garza leaves a long-lasting impression on a narrative dominated by dudes with gruff voices. She’s an imposing presence in her titular mission, “El Sin Nombre”, by which Alejandro, Cleaning soap McTavish, and Cleaning soap’s 2009 mohawk infiltrate the El Sin Nombre headquarters to determine and seize the group’s faceless chief. Cleaning soap is questioned by Garza (believing that she’s solely a cartel common, not the top honcho herself) and the participant is pressured to reply trivia concerning the whos and whats of the story to this point to not get shot within the chest. Actor Maria Elisa Camargo, who additionally did Garza’s efficiency seize, actually owns the scene and performs the great cop/unhealthy cop interrogator nicely.

Camargo herself is having a blast interacting with Garza’s surprising fanbase, even embracing her thirst lure standing.

Personally, I am nonetheless holding a candle for Farah Karim: the calm, exact, and vengeful freedom-fighting protagonist of the earlier Trendy Warfare marketing campaign. Karim returns briefly in Trendy Warfare 2 to assist Captain Worth take down a convoy of terrorists, however sadly it is the worst mission within the game.

I totally count on Infinity Ward to take discover of Garza’s rising fanbase and react accordingly. If there wasn’t already a Valeria pores and skin within the works, it is in all probability coming. The keenness speaks for itself.
