Snoop Dogg is now a playable character in Call of Duty

Read the words “Snoop Dogg can level up” in a official blog post broke me but it’s true. Calvin Broadus Jr. is now a playable operator in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Purchasing the Tracer Pack: Snoop Dogg Operator Bundle gives you Snoop, who has recorded voice lines for the occasion, and blueprints for three legendary weapons, all of which fire rounds of Green Weed tracer. These weapons are an assault rifle called the West Coast Bling, an SMG called Tha Shiznit, and a sniper rifle called the Bong Ripper. You can’t accuse them of not supporting the theme.

Also included are a gold leaf weapon (“Mellow Medal”), an emblem (“The Original Gangsta”), a spray (“High Art”) and something called “Finishizzle Movizzle”. Vanguard players also receive a game intro called Tactical Toke and an MVP highlight called “Hit This, Fam”.

As with other operators in Vanguard, Snoop has challenges that give him XP when they are completed. Four of his challenges reward you for scoring wins, headshot kills, hipfire kills, and ordinary, boring vanilla kills. Each pushes Snoop along a progression path that unlocks more sprays, operator jokes, a business card, a sticker, weapon XP rewards, another weapon amulet, a Vanguard killcam vanity, and four alternate outfits.

The top tier of these outfits is only unlocked when you bring Snoop to level 20, when you get the VIP outfit and one nicknamed Tha Doggfather.

According to Snoop’s official Call of Duty biography, he is a member of Task Force 420 and his hobbies include “Listening to K-Pop, Smoking, Painting”. Yes, it’s all very strange, but the Call of Duty games have a history of strange appearances. (Never forget that Jeff Goldblum was in Black Ops 3’s zombie mode.) And while he wasn’t playable, in 2014 Snoop lent his voice to a Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer voice pack.
