Call Of Duty Adds New DLC Based On Real-Life Medal Of Honor Recipient
The Call of Duty Endowment "Fearless" DLC for Modern Warfare and Warzone is now available to buy, with 100% of proceeds going to help military veterans find jobs.
The new DLC is called the Call of Duty Endowment Fearless Pack, and all proceeds of the $10 add-on will go to Activision's charity that helps military veterans find careers after leaving the service.
The Fearless pack contains 10 items, and the offering was created in partnership with Captain Florent "Flo" Groberg, who earned the Medal of Honor for his combat career. The DLC comes with a new operator skin inspired by what Groberg wore in combat, as well as the blueprint for an assault rifle called "For the Cause." The weapon features an engraving of the date--August 8, 2012--that Groberg attempted to stop a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. Groberg was successful in tackling the bomber, but the bomb exploded, killing four of his squad members. President Barack Obama awarded Groberg with the Medal of Honor in 2015 for his actions.
"People died for me--people made the ultimate sacrifice--and for me, it's an opportunity--a duty--to make sure I earn it, pay it forward, and that I stop thinking about myself," Groberg said in an interview with Activision. "I learned all that on August 8, 2012, because in eight seconds, my life completely changed, and earning the Medal of Honor gave me the platform and opportunity to help our community."
The DLC also includes a new watch, weapon camo, and a boonie weapon charm. The Fearless pack also comes with two calling cards and two emblems, as well as a special spray for the Call of Duty Endowment logo. You can see more of the new content and hear directly from Groberg in the video below.
Activision is also selling a new t-shirt that was created specifically for this new Call of Duty Endowment campaign. All proceeds from the $32 USD shirt will go to the charity.
According to Activision's latest numbers, the Call of Duty Endowment has so far helped more than 69,000 military veterans find new careers in the civilian world. The charity aims to help fund the placement of 100,000 veterans by 2024.
