Activision have partnered up with rapper Pusha T and Adidas for a collaborative sneaker release themed after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and players will be given the chance to win a pair by playing the game.
With only a couple of days remaining until the release of Modern Warfare, the anticipation among the player-base is seemingly growing bigger by the hour.
Activision added to this hype on October 22 by announcing that they had entered into a collaboration with Adidas and Pusha T to produce an exclusive MW-themed sneaker called Ozweego Kingslayer.
The shoe’s design features a light and dark gray accented color scheme, the iconic three stripes of Adidas, and an oval badge towards the back displaying the official game logo.

As for the name ‘Kingslayer,’ it is in reference to the in-game medal one gets when eliminating that opposing team’s highest scoring player during a multiplayer match.
Pusha T spoke briefly about what compelled him to collaborate with Activision and make the shoe, and the inspiration behind the design.
“Gaming has[always been a part of the studio culture,” he said while presenting the shoes for the first time. “The attention to detail in Modern Warfare is amazing. Putting it on an Ozweego, one of my favorite silhouettes, I think it’s history in the making.”

How to win a pair of Modern Warfare x Adidas sneakers
Perhaps the biggest thing to note about these shoes is that there will only be 300 pairs made for the public, and none of them will actually be for sale.
Instead, they will be awarded out to the winners of the contest that Activision have put together involving the game itself.
Players who register their account and manage to reach Officer Rank (Level 56) in-game, will be entered into the contest and have the chance to win one of the 300 pairs.

However, there will be only a limited amount of time to complete this objective, as the contest will officially close on November 1, 2019 at 11:59 PM PT / 2:59 PM ET, so players will have until then to reach the necessary level.
This is obviously a very unique contest, and one that should draw interest from a lot of players around the world.
With Modern Warfare launching on October 25, there will be plenty of time for even part-time grinders to reach the necessary level before the deadline, so those looking to enter should expect a lot of competition once the drawing takes place.
