Nicki Minaj and 21 Savage are going to be playable in Call Of Duty claims leak

The next two operators for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone are set to be the weirdest celebrity crossover so far.

Celebrity and pop culture cameos have been a thing in Fortnite for years, but then it’s pretty easy to fit almost anyone into that game, given its cartoonish art style. Call Of Duty takes itself a bit more seriously though and its attempt to add its own random celebrities often ends up looking a bit odd.

Just this week, it announced skins based on the characters Homelander, Starlight, and Black Noir from The Boys. Which apart form anything else makes no sense, because why would the first two need guns?

In that context, the next two additions make a bit more sense, but do you really buy Nicki Minaj and 21 Savage as part of an elite fighting team? Well, someone’s bound to, because apparently they’re going to be the next pair of operators to be added to the game.

They haven’t been officially announced yet, so there’s no screenshots and no indication of when exactly they’ll be added, but dataminers have discovered references to them in the game’s code and that almost always proves to be an accurate indication of what’s coming soon.

Dataminer Alaix has always proven accurate in the past and he insists that they are actually going to be proper operators and that the game won’t just be using their music.

Other non-movie celebs have been in the game before, such as Snoop Dogg and footballers Messi, Pogba, and Neymar Jr., so this isn’t quite as odd as it sounds.

It’s not even the first time Nicki Minaj has been associated with Call Of Duty, as she was in the Modern Warfare 2 Squad Up trailer, along with a bunch of other random celebrities.

Alaix has also uncovered evidence of three other operators, listed only as Ivan, Nolan, and Oz. It’s not clear who they are but some fans have suggested Nolan may be Nolan Grayson, aka Omni-Man from Invincible.

He also doesn’t need a gun, but he’s rumoured to be appearing as a fighter in Mortal Kombat 1, and the companies that own the rights to these characters do often shop them round to multiple different games at the same time – so it’s no surprise to find him suddenly turning up in Call Of Duty as well.
