Call of Duty introduces Snoop Dogg as playable character in time for 420
Now, that’s something I never really expected to see, but Call of Duty is no stranger to seemingly random household names. See also: Lewis Hamilton, Fidel Castro and Jeff Goldblum.With plenty of time for musicians’ favorite vacations through April 19, we now have Snoop Dogg as an operator pioneer and war zone.
This isn’t Snoop’s first Call of Duty rodeo.The musician is also a multiplayer announcer in some Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC and is no stranger to streaming video games on a regular basis his Twitch channel. However, he is easily distracted.
in an announcement Official blog post – It sounds like Snoop Dogg’s entire career is leading up to this moment – Players can buy Tracer Pack: Snoop Dogg Operator Bundle 2,400 COD points.
He functions like any other operator in Call of Duty, with his own development path and four challenges. These also offer the chance to unlock various rewards, including new outfits, operator one-liners voiced by the man himself, and some unique weapons.
I say unique because, how many weapons in Call of Duty can fire green weed tracer rounds? The weapons are also named appropriately: we have a sniper rifle called the Bong Ripper, an assault rifle called the West Coast Bling, and an SMG called Tha Shiznit.
Even without the comprehensive history of Snoop Dogg, most people will know that Death Row Records is owned by the musician who shot to fame after the release of Dr. Dre’s The Chronic in 1992. He remains one of the biggest names in hip-hop, while also maintaining his reputation as the infamous Thing. So it’s no surprise to see how much the Doggfather’s smoking habits affect this pack.
It’s only mentioned further when looking at Snoop Dogg’s biography as an operator. He is a member of Task Force 420 and his hobbies are “listening to K-Pop, smoking, painting”. While he’s mostly known as a musician and media personality, for whatever reason, he’s now committed to fighting as a Call of Duty operator.
Somehow, I thought that joining FaZe Clan might expose Snoop. What do you think of the latest Call of Duty operator?
