Call of Duty is a first-person military shooter video game released in 2003. Eventually, it grew into a worldwide sensation spanning several spinoffs and sequels. It is a multiplayer game that keeps players by providing new content every in-game season.
The latest is Season 5 of Warzone and Modern Warfare 2. It offers numerous perks and goodies, but the most interesting ones are the new playable characters or “operators.” Let’s start with Nicki Minaj, who you may remember for her hit songs like “Super Bass.”
As expected, her in-game representation shows her iconic pink hair. Also, the Harajuku Barbie rocks a matching rose combat vest and bubblegum rifle. Some sources say she’s Call of Duty’s first female operator, but other CoD games have featured femme fatales.

For example, did you know you can play Isabella Reyes, a Filipina operator, in Call of Duty: Vanguard? Next, we have Snoop Dogg, another iconic rapper. His CoD operator rocks shades, a shirt with a combat vest, and a blue and gold rifle.
Believe it or not, Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare isn’t his first time in video games. His songs were part of the soundtrack for the 2009 shooter, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. Also, Snoop Dogg was a member of the Board of Directors for the esports team Faze (FaZe) Clan.
It isn’t his first time with Call of Duty, either. Believe it or not, you can download a Snoop Dogg announcer pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Forbes says Call of Duty Season 5 will feature British rapper 21 Savage. Unfortunately, the teaser only showed his outline, so we don’t know what he would look like in the game.
Call of Duty Warzone vs. Modern Warfare 2
You may only recognize CoD Warzone 2.0 if you’ve only played the franchise recently. It is publisher Activision’s answer to the wildly popular Fortnite.
It is a battle royale, first-person shooter you can play on your phone. Like Fortnite, you and 149 other players’ parachute drop into an urban environment, the fictional city of Verdansk.
The map hides numerous vehicles, weapons, and other supplies you’ll need to eliminate contestants and fight them back. Their goal is to become the last person alive on the map.

However, everyone must complete the objective quickly before the map shrinks. Stay out of bounds for too long, and you will become eliminated.
On the other hand, most long-time fans play Modern Warfare 2 on their PCs and consoles. The first Modern Warfare 2 launched in 2009 before getting a remake in 2023 for modern systems.
Unlike Warzone, it has a single-player campaign mode where you play as a military operative uncovering a sinister plot. MW2 features CoD’s most memorable characters, like Captain “Soap” MacTavish.
Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare 2 will feature famous music artists for Season 5. On August 2, 2023, you can play as Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, and Snoop Dogg.
The new season also features new maps and game modes: Capture the Flag, Gunfight, and Havoc. Later, the season will add more perks as it progresses.
