Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg and 21 Savage have been added to Call of Duty as playable characters in celebration of Hip Hop 50.

Activision revealed in a blog post on Thursday (July 27) that Nicki, Snoop and 21 will be added to Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 game modes when the Season 5 update launches on August 2.



Minaj has long been a trailblazer in music and she’ll be making more history as the first self-named female operator ever added to the Call of Duty series.

Although, the “Super Bass” rapper is no stranger to the Call of Duty universe, previously appearing in a commercial for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 alongside Lil Baby and Pete Davidson last year.

It’s a fitting skin for the “Barbie World” rapper as she’ll be leading her troops to freedom while rocking a hot pink wig to match her military gear and pink-drenched assault rifle.

Call of Duty isn’t ready just yet to reveal what 21’s menacing operator will look like as he’ll be added at some point in the mid-season.

Check out the game’s latest trailer below:

As for Snoop Dogg, he’s been part of Modern Warfare II and Warzone zeitgeist since the West Coast legend became a playable operator in April 2022.

“The D O Double G is back in Call of Duty and this time I’m in the freakin’ game,” Snoop wrote on Instagram at the time. “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.”

However, his relationship with COD dates back to 2014 when he lent his voice to narrate characters in Call of Duty: Ghost.

While there are no plans to add them to the game yet, Lil Uzi Vert is also a huge Call of Duty fan and recently invited Narduar to their house for a crash course in COD during their recent interview.

“You could just come to my house and have dinner,” Uzi told the Human Serviette. “I’ll give you my number, and then I can teach you how to play Call of Duty.”

Uzi previously plugged the first-person shooter while on the red carpet at the 2023 Grammy Awards in February, saying that after the show they planned to simply go home and play video games.



“I’ve been playing a lot of COD. I got some friends on COD that I’ve been connecting with. I’ve been playing a lot of COD. I just got back on Fortnite,” he said. “I’ll be on there. My username is UziiiiiiiPink like seven ‘I’s’ though.”
