The Barbie herself Nicki Minaj is coming to Call of Duty as an operator.

Activision announced earlier this week that Nicki Minaj is coming to Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare 2 as the first “self-named female operator.” She is the first non-fictional woman to be featured as an operator in the Call of Duty franchise, making this another accomplishment for the successful female rapper.

Nicki Minaj will have her own bundle available in the in-game store, which not only includes her likeness but a pink assault rifle.

Developers noted that Nicki Minaj’s appearance will be inspired by “Red Ruby Da Sleeze,” one of the rapper’s alter egos from a recent music video. Her skin-tight outfit definitely looks on point and has fans hopeful that they aren’t shying away from reflecting her over-the-top personality in the game.

But some fans have already started begging developers to make sure she is “shaped like Nicki,” calling them cowards if they skimp on the ass shots.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 Celebrating 50 Years of Hip Hop

Nicki Minaj is not the only rapper coming to Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. The game’s “50 Years of Hip Hop Celebration” will also have Snoop Dogg and 21 Savage as operators.

The addition of Nicki and her fellow rappers was first teased in a promo video released last year before Modern Warfare 2 came out. The video, called “Squad Up,” had rappers and other celebrities getting involved in the action.

Snoop Dogg has actually been in Call of Duty before. This will be his third appearance in the series. Like Nicki, he’s had some records with the franchise as well. In 2014, Snoop became the first celebrity to have a voice pack, which appeared in Call of Duty: Ghosts’ multiplayer modes. He then returned last year to fight in World War II as an operator in Vanguard and the first Warzone.

Call of Duty has featured a lot of celebrities as operators ever since, including Lionel Mess island Kevin Durant. But this hip-hop celebration is looking like one of the most exciting yet thanks to the addition of Nicki Minaj.

Let’s just hope Call of Duty developers aren’t too afraid when it comes to Nicki Minaj’s shape. As she once said: “And it's finally soft, yeah, it's finally solved! I don't know, man, guess them ass shots wore off! Bitches ain't poppin', Google my ass.”

Call of Duty Season 5 will bring Nicki, Snoop, and 21 Savage to the battlefield. You may also catch a glimpse of the next Call of Duty game coming later this year.
