Call Of Duty 4/20 Event Brings Cheech And Chong, A Stoned Sloth, And Weed-Themed Bundles

Celebrate the stoner holiday in Call of Duty with Cheech and Chong operators, a Blaze Up mode, and more.


Call of Duty's upcoming Season 3 update will have a variety of 4/20-themed content, it's been announced, including Cheech and Chong operators and an event called Blaze Up.

The legendary stoners Cheech and Chong are coming to Call of Duty: Warzone, Modern Warfare III, and Warzone Mobile in a DLC bundle, and they're voiced by Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong themselves. The stoner-comedy legends will be available to buy in a tracer pack that also comes with three weapon blueprints, a sticker, a large decal, a loading screen, and the "Secondhand Smoke" finishing move.

Given that the bundle has two operators and its own dedicated finishing move, this will likely be one of the more expensive DLC bundles yet, though official pricing was not announced in Activision's blog post.

Continuing the stoner theme, Modern Warfare III will have a new event called "Blaze Up" that promises "exclusively dank rewards." Activision warned fans that this event "may cause the munchies." In Warzone, players can try out a mode called High Trip. This is a limited-time event that has players collecting gummies to "sharpen" their senses and "smoke out" the competition.

There is also a bundle called "Stoney Sloth" coming to Call of Duty in Season 3. A teaser image shows a sloth with bloodshot eyes and marijuana leaves covering his body.

There is also a "new" map coming to Modern Warfare III called Growhouse. This is an updated version of the Sphere map from Call of Duty: Vanguard that morphed from an experimental test site to a "backwoods narcotics den nestled in remote foothills."

Specific release dates were not announced for any of the weed-themed content, but it's reasonable to assume Activision would want to release this content close to the stoner holiday on 4/20.

The Call of Duty franchise has a long history of loving marijuana and smoking grass in general, so it's no surprise to see these latest announcements.

The Cheech and Chong DLC was first revealed via a datamining effort that also suggested Snoop Dogg, another fan of smoking weed, is returning to Call of Duty. This was confirmed in Activision's blog post for Season 3, but a release date was not announced.
