The days of Call of Duty as a serious military shooter have long been over and nothing much can shock players anymore after the appearance of King Kong and Godzilla in the game last year. In the latest crossover, characters from Amazon Prime show The Boys have made their way into Activision’s golden goose. And that’s not the end of it, one dataminer claims (via CharlieINTEL), as Call of Duty further tries to follow the example of Fortnite.

According to the dataminer, rappers 21 Savage and Nicki Minaj are the next on the list to join the roster of available operator skins in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. 

Alaix, who is responsible for these claims, has a pretty solid track record of leaking Call of Duty content early, so while this should be taken with a grain of salt, it’s pretty clear that something in connection with these two people is coming up. Some fans suggested that their music may be added to the game, but the dataminer denied that possibility, doubling down on the artists becoming skins.

The two musicians would not only follow fictional characters like the superheroes and creatures mentioned above into the game – plenty of real-life celebrities from Snoop Dog and Kevin Durant to Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. are already available in the game as operators. Each of these existing skins contains unique voice lines recorded by the people they’re supposed to represent.

Nicki Minaj has some established connections with Call of Duty, starring in an ad for the current iteration of the series.
