Activision seems to be surprisingly going after Fortnite with Call of Duty. The studio announced that The Boys, as part of the fourth season, are coming to Warzone 2. Although not all of the “heroes” will be there.
Three members of the unpopular group The Seven are part of Warzone 2 Season 4. They are Homelander, Black Noir and Starlight. But what exactly can you do with them, how does it affect the game and what are their Operator features?
Call of Duty goes after Fornite with The Boys
Fornite is lord and master at adding familiar heads into its game. For example, gamers can cut loose with characters from Star Wars, Spider-Man and Batman. A great way to cater to Fortnite’s target audience, but whether the Call of Duty community is waiting for it….
Doesn’t matter further, because the fact is that Homelander, Black Noir and Stralight are making their way into the popular shooter. Each hero brings unique features, but also provides players within the game with special chests. The chests contain the drug Temp V, which gives soldiers temporarily unique powers.
Think of a Super Jump, Electric Shockwave or even Laser Vision. As a result, gamers fight like a real superhero and completely end the opponent in The Boys style. Spicy special for a shooter….
In the comments, under the trailer on YouTube, the mood is not entirely positive. Most gamers are annoyed that Activision is engaging in geeky stuff, when it should really be fixing the major problems within Warzone 2.
What’s going on with Warzone 2?
Since the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, negative noises about the game have been heard. Whereas the first part of Warzone was really a great success, and according to many a pleasure to play, the second version has the necessary problems.
Gamers constantly run into annoying server problems and disagree with the changes made compared to the first part. That Activision chooses to sling superheroes into the game will really be the straw for many people, if it hasn’t already dropped.
Call of Duty a la Fortnite: what are The Boys doing?
It doesn’t matter much what you, the gamer, think of the choice, though. Activision is giving Call of Duty the Fornite treatment and throwing three heroes from The Boys into the multiplayer game. They can be used in various maps as Operator.
In addition to special weapon stickers, emblems, loading screens and Weapon Charms, the following features are also attached to the heroes:
Laser Everyone | Finishing Move
Bravado | Assault Rifle
Superiority Complex | Pro-Tuned SMG
Vought Issue | Pro-Tuned Assault Rifle
Black Noir Operator
Shhh | Finishing Move
Noir’s Blades | Melee Weapon
Unspoken Word | Sniper Rifle
Quiet Rage | Assault Rifle
Necessary Evil | Finishing Move
Blinding Light | Sidearm
Des Moines Defender | Assault Rifle
World Saver | Pro-Tuned SMG
Homelander, Black Noir and Starlight are immediately playable in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. The Fornite party is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC.
