The upcoming Season 5 of Call of Duty will introduce popular singer Nicki Minaj as a new playable character, the first ever female celebrity to be given this role, as unveiled by game developer Activision. Minaj’s character will be included in both Warzone and Modern Warfare 2, as a part of CoD’s celebration of 50 years of Hip Hop, joining other notable figures such as Snoop Dogg and 21 Savage.
In the past, the CoD franchise has included a roster of famous personalities such as Lionel Messi, Kevin Durant, and Snoop Dogg. Nicki Minaj, however, stands as the inaugural female celebrity ‘Operator’ in Call of Duty, as stated by the developers. The character, named after one of Minaj’s tracks, “Red Ruby Da Sleeze”, signals a shift from the regular, less intense character of Minaj to a more fierce persona.
A custom storefront for Minaj will be set up later in the fifth season, potentially featuring items such as the vibrant pink rifle displayed in promotional images. Minaj’s introduction into the game was hinted at in a previous YouTube video titled “Squad Up”, where other celebrities like Lil Baby, Bukayo Saka, and Pete Davidson made appearances, although it’s unclear if these personalities will make their way into the game at any point.
The Season 5 website also sheds light on various in-game items and additions, such as the 9mm ISO submachine gun, the AN-94 assault rifle, and several other weapons. Fans can look forward to new multiplayer maps for Livestock and Petrov Oil Rig, and an updated Warzone 2.0 with new locations like the Verdansk Stadium. Season 5 also anticipates a sneak peek of the forthcoming 2023 installment, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, within Warzone. The launch for Season 05 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone is scheduled for August 2, at 9 AM PT, available across all gaming platforms.
