The upcoming Season 3 update for Warzone and Modern Warfare 3 is sparking debate as it marks the return of legendary rapper Snoop Dogg as a playable Operator. The trailer and teasers have ignited mixed reactions, leaving fans divided about the Doggfather's latest Call of Duty appearance.

A Snoop Dogg Staple, But For How Long?

Snoop Dogg's inclusion in CoD games is becoming a tradition. With appearances in Ghosts, Vanguard, CoD Mobile, and previous Modern Warfare titles, some fans argue it's time for a refresh. The uncertainty surrounding his Season 3 unlock method – whether it'll be a Battle Pass reward or another store bundle – adds to the potential fatigue.

While some players celebrate Snoop Dogg's iconic status and the Season 3 focus on nostalgic elements, others express a desire for fresh faces. Some point out that they've already purchased Snoop Dogg skins in previous titles and feel less inclined to do so again, especially if the Season 3 iteration requires another purchase.

Season 3's emphasis on reviving past favorites like Snoop Dogg and Rebirth Island resonates with a specific player demographic.  These players appreciate the return of familiar faces and maps,  evoking memories of past victories and favorite gameplay styles. However, this nostalgia-fueled approach can alienate newer players who crave entirely new experiences and characters.

The Call of Duty franchise has a rich history of collaborating with celebrities.  From Billy Zane in Black Ops Cold War to Giancarlo Esposito in Warzone, these inclusions have undoubtedly generated excitement  and publicity.  However, with Snoop Dogg's recurring presence, some fans feel the franchise is missing out on opportunities to explore fresh collaborations.  There's a vast pool of talented artists, athletes, and actors who could bring unique personas and voices to the Call of Duty universe.

Perhaps Season 3's mixed reception will prompt the developers to re-evaluate their celebrity inclusion strategy in future updates.  Diversifying the cast of Operators with a wider range of cultural icons could reignite excitement for a broader player base.
