After several days of intense teasers, Activision has finally confirmed that the icons of the 80's action heroes and their partners Johns Rambo and McClane will arrive in Call of Duty: Warzone as premium operator skins on May 20.
The fun began earlier this month, when the Call of Duty account tweeted statistics for a player named Survivorjohn # 1009062. He was cryptic but a Twitter user. Eric Maynard has deleted the code: there are five movies in the Rambo series and, according to the Rambo Wiki (yes, there are Rambo Wiki), our intrepid hero kills a total of 552 people. Wow!

A few days later, another joke appeared in his nose, in the form of a fake ad for Nakatomi duct cleaning, an obvious reference to Nakatomi Plaza, the building in the center of the original Die Hard. Then the Call of Duty account tweeted the stats Cowboymcclane # 0070030. John McClane was called a "cowboy" several times throughout the film.
There was obviously something cooking, and now it’s official: the action starts on May 20th.

And what exactly is "action?" Details aren't quite complete yet, but I wish there were some voice lines (I could actually pay real money for the opportunity to run screaming ")Schieß dem fenster"to everyone), and possibly some iconic pistols, such as Hans Gruber's P7M13 or Rambo's M60. On the road, we could even see more of these characters appear: Rambo and McClane are a solid start , but it's really a complete thematic follow-up to the 1980s Black Ops: Cold War Without Chuck Norris i Dolph Lundgren? I do not think so.
