Michael Myers (also known as Swamp Slasher) is a movie character from the movie series "Halloween" (excluding the third movie), and is a Field Order reward that appears in the downloadable content pack Onslaught within the map Fog. Once obtained, the player will become "Michael Myers" himself, mask, costume, and everything, where they are then armed with an axe and the Halloween movie theme will play.
In terms of gameplay, Michael has similar stats to the Juggernaut and the Maniac; he has the same amount of health and has no health regeneration, however he runs 10-15% faster. His axe kills faster than the knife as he can recover from attacking faster. He also has no lock-on animation with his axe, so this means that instead of grabbing his enemy and stabbing him/her, he will just "flick" his axe similar to past Call of Duty games.
This reward is essentially the same as the Maniac, But with a few differences; His melee is as fast as the Tactical Knife attachment where just a single swing will kill when it hits, rather than grabbing the enemy before thrusting the knife into their bodies like the Maniac/regular knife melee. However, one note is that there is less lock-on, so the axe can miss more than the Combat Knife, like a Modern Warfare knife melee rather than a Ghosts knife melee. He runs 10-15% faster than the Maniac, and has no Throwing Knife. Victims' "souls" will disperse from the kill; when Michael Myers is killed, his "red soul" will disperse with bats. His vision is completely clear, whereas the Maniac wears a gas mask and edges of their vision is obscured. His health regenerates slightly when killing an enemy.
Upon Myers' death, a nursery-rhyme chant from the films will play to announce it to the players, in addition to the on-screen message "(Player) killed Michael Myers!"
Michael Myers can also use a Combat Knife, but only if the player carries a Care Package Marker.
Myers' appearance is based off the original film series and not the 2000 reboot series.
A popular Custom Game Mode, known as "Michael Myers", exists. It's usually played in a Search and Destroy, with the person playing as Michael being on one team, and the survivors (anyone who isn't Michael Myers) on another team. The Survivor's cannot kill Michael Myers until one is the Last Man Standing. If Michael Myers is killed, his killer becomes the new Michael Myers, more similarly to his corresponding movies. every player has Knifes and various equipment at their disposal.
It appears that for each kill the player does while playing as Michael Myers, they are healed by a small amount if they are wounded.
