Warzone & Vanguard players slam “embarrassing” Attack on Titan crossover
After months of hype, Call of Duty’s highly anticipated Attack on Titan crossover has finally arrived. Unfortunately, Warzone & Vanguard fans are not impressed by the cosmetics.
Attack on Titan is one of the most popular anime series in the world. The show follows the story of Eren Yeager, a young man whose family is killed by the monstrous humanoid creatures known as Titans who roam across the land.
With the second part of Attack on Titan’s fourth and final season starting on January 9, Vanguard and Warzone’s Season 1.5 update was the perfect time to announce the special cosmetic pack that was first leaked months ago.
Unfortunately, fans who were super excited to see Attack on Titan join the world of Call of Duty have been left disappointed, claiming that the skin and pack just aren’t worth the money.
The release of the bundle has not been met which much enthusiasm, with players slamming the Operator skin included in the bundle. While the developers have claimed the skin is not meant to be an exact replica of the character Levi Ackerman, the scarf and hairstyle are identical to what the Survey Corps Captain sports throughout the show.
“Look at that haircut and tell me that’s not supposed to be Levi,” one Reddit user commented. “They are probably backtracking now because everyone hates how he looks.”
“Yeah, the scarf and the hair are dead giveaways,” agreed another. “Honestly, if they just made it so he looked like an average AoT soldier, I’d be totally fine with it. They don’t have to make it based on a character as the outfits themselves are super cool.”
For others, the $20 price tag was a major sticking point, especially considering what the Attack on Titan skin looks like.
User ‘iiAmTheAnimail’ wrote: Oh wow, what an embarrassment this is. I don’t even watch AoT and I can tell this is a load of horsesh*t. Only $20 dollars! What a steal!”
Anime crossovers aren’t new in the gaming scene. In November 2021, Fortnite introduced Naruto skins into the game, allowing players to fight for wins as their favorite characters.
Crossovers in Epic Games’ battle royale are generally viewed favorably, with one CoD fan stating: “This is why Fortnite gets all these different collabs because at least they do it properly.”
For players who still want to get their hands on the Attack on Titan bundle, it will be added to the in-game stores of Vanguard and Warzone on Thursday, January 20.
