Is there anything Snoop Dogg can’t do? The legendary West Coast rap icon stars in countless commercials, helms television shows such as Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, owns the Death Row Records brand, is an executive at Def Jam Recordings, runs his own cannabis brand and now, is a playable operator in the Call of Duty video game.
According to a Call of Duty blog, Snoop Dogg’s character will be available on Season 3 Call of Duty: Mobile, Vanguard and Warzone. Snoop co-signed the news with his 71.4 million Instagram followers on Monday (March 20) with a screenshot of his character. The headline read, “SNOOP DOGG IS COMING TO CALL OF DUTY.”
He added, “”he D O Double G is back in Call of Duty and this time I’m in the freakin’ game! Excited to be working with the COD team to bring some fly features for you all to enjoy. It’s dope….. y’all can play as me and get these sick items that have Snoop written all over them.”
Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone, the Snoop Dogg Operator Bundle will be available on April 19 at 10 a.m. PT, although the Snoop Dogg in Vanguard and Warzone is separate from the Snoop Dogg in Call of Duty: Mobile.
The Warzone and Vanguard Snoop Dogg Operator Bundle includes 10 items — three exclusive to Vanguard — and a full Operator progression track. Rewards across these 20 levels of Operator progression include Weapon XP for Snoop’s preferred weapon from Vanguard and three alternate outfits in addition to other cosmetic items.
The Lucky Draw version of Snoop has him “decked out head-to-toe in a 24K gold embroidered outfit” and includes a “new signature weapon based on a fast-firing Legendary SMG that’s gold-plated and diamond-encrusted.” The weapon’s death animation has been compared to the “lights of a mini-concert” that gets “even flashier” when players take out more people.
