As observed in recent times, Video Games have formed a tendency to introduce popular names in their game, often in the form of in-game live events or cosmetics that can be equipped and used by the players.
While Fortnite is the first game that comes to mind when thinking about video game collaborations, Call Of Duty for the past year has been trying to catch up with its own introduction of skin lines relating to celebrities.
Call Of Duty Takes It Too Far
While Call Of Duty has seen major success since the launch of its collaborated cosmetics, their recent launch of a skin of none other than the famous singer Nicki Minaj has left fans questioning.
Many people have complained about how the character unnecessarily has long hair, with others complaining that this simply goes against the tough and strong legacy of Call Of Duty that it has been maintaining all these years.
The news of Nicki Minaj dropping in the video game has spread like wildfire on internet platforms like Twitter. With famous reporters like @charlieINTEL tweeting about the same, they have also received some bizarre reactions in the replies that none would expect.

Twitter is often the platform that witnesses most events like these. Minaj’s addition to Call Of Duty is something that sparked off long debates and reply chains on Twitter, and while some of them were supportive and light-hearted enough, many did not miss the opportunity to troll and criticize the game’s decision to add the celebrity as a cosmetic.
Hair longer than the gun 🤣‼️‼️

The game has also had other popular names in addition, examples of the same include none other than Snoop Dogg, and the famous YouTuber NickMercs. The game has also witnessed collaboration with the famous Attack On Titan anime which introduced Levi as well as the Attack Titan as equippable skins in the game.
The trend of using celebrities as the face of a Video Game has been a tactic that has been used by a lot of developing studios in recent times. Some of the popular names that come in this list include Cyberpunk 2077, Fortnite, and as we discussed recently, Call Of Duty.
