In what appears to be a continuation of the long-standing partnership between Call of Duty and Mountain Dew/Doritos, Black Ops Cold War players can now get their hands on a Doritos weapon charm in-game (and a Mountain Dew emblem). To do so, however, you’ll have to go through a few steps.

Doritos, Mountain Dew, and Call of Duty have been synonymous with each other for years now, to the point where it’s become a meme among fans. While the partnership has allowed players to get double XP for a while now, last year, the companies took it a step further and added a free Doritos-themed watch for your character to use in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Now, the partnership is continuing and, this time, players can get their hands on a Doritos-themed weapon charm, as well as a free Mountain Dew emblem. Like last year, however, there’s a couple steps players have to go through in order to do it. Here’s everything you need to know.

Free Doritos weapon charm and Dew emblem

While the Dew emblem is a bit bland, the Doritos charm is hilarious.

While the emblem is just a mushroom cloud colored in the same neon green as Mountain Dew, the weapon charm is pretty hilarious, as it’s literally a Nacho Cheese Dorito hanging off the side of your weapon. It’s important to note that the image released by Mountain Dew says that it’s not a real in-game image, so it may be the case that the final product looks different than the one seen.

All in all, however, this is a pretty hilarious gift and even though it doesn’t affect gameplay in any regard, it’s easy to picture fans rocking this charm for the foreseeable future, just based on how ridiculous it is.

How do I earn the free weapon charm and emblem?

Luckily, the instructions for this one are relatively easy. Players don’t have to do anything in-game to earn it but they will end up needing a Twitter account in order to get it.

  1. Follow Mountain Dew on Twitter.
  2. Reply to this tweet, or simply @MountainDew, with #DoritosDewDrop.
  3. Once Mountain Dew sends you your code, redeem your code using the instructions messaged to you.
  4. The item should appear the next time you boot up Black Ops Cold War.

The worst part about the whole process is waiting for your chance to redeem. After you tweet the correct hashtag, it will take a while before you end up getting your code, as it’s not automatic.

Still, at the end of the day, it’s worth it to have a literal Doritos chip hanging off the side of your weapon.

Dr Disrespect reveals his main complaint about Black Ops Cold War

During a recent livestream, Dr Disrespect called out Treyarch for the lack of multiplayer maps in Black Ops Cold War, stating that the game should’ve had 15 maps at minimum at launch.

When Black Ops Cold War first launched, many fans were taken aback by the fact that the game only had 8 multiplayer maps available to players.

Six of them were available in one way, shape, or form during the beta, meaning fans only had two brand new ones to experience for the first time, which annoyed the community, to say the least.

Since then, it’s become a hot talking point in the community and, while the developers did release Nuketown ’84 and plan to release new maps with the start of the first season, the general consensus seems to be that the content released is just simply not enough. Now, Dr Disrespect himself has also shared the same sentiment.

Black Ops Cold War had eight maps at launch but is now up to nine thanks to the inclusion of Nuketown.

When discussing the game during a recent broadcast, the Two-Time made it clear that he’s a big fan of BOCW’s multiplayer, except for one thing – the number of maps.

“I’m having a good time, Cold War – I like it a lot, the multiplayer,” he said. “Just don’t give me two maps, cmon [David] Vonderhaar. Put 15 in the game, minimum!”

The bit about “two maps” is referring to that fact that the only maps not previously released in the alpha or the beta were Garrison and Checkpoint, which means that there were essentially only two ‘new’ ones reserved for launch.

Afterwards, he says he has a “bag full” of prototypes, referring to map ideas, although he’s definitely joking.

That said, the Doc does have extensive experience designing maps for shooter games, having worked on Advanced Warfare with Sledgehammer Games before releasing ‘The Arena’ in Rogue Company last month.

He may certainly get his wish for “15 maps” soon, as Treyarch have promised a lot of post-launch content in BOCW, starting off with Season 1 on December 10, which is set to introduce several 6v6 maps, along with a flurry of other new things for players to enjoy.
