Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Is Raising Money For Australian Bushfire Relief
Activision joins Ubisoft and Bungie is donating.
Activision is raising money for the ongoing bushfire relief effort in Australia through an in-game charity campaign with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The "Outback Relief Pack" is available now, and it contains Australia-themed items and gear.
The Outback Relief pack costs 1,800 Call of Duty Points, which works out to around $18 USD. 100 percent of the net proceeds will be donated to help fire relief efforts in Australia. It's unclear exactly where the money is going, but GameSpot has followed up with Activision in an attempt to get more details.
The content includes a Bushranger operator skin, a koala charm, and the blueprints for the legendary "Big Game" sniper rifle. There is also a new sticker, gun art, operator quip, and finishing move, as well as a token to skip one tier in the Modern Warfare Battle Pass.
In a tweet, Activision said, "Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the bushfires in Australia." The message also confirms that the donation campaign runs until January 31.
Activision is not the only gaming company that is giving money to help support the firefighting efforts in Australia. Ubisoft Australia has also donated, while Bungie is raising money through a Destiny 2 campaign to raise funds.
As of January 12, there are still more than 100 bush and grass fires burning in Australia, 40 of which are not contained. The New South Wales Bureau of Meteorology is projecting a good amount of rain across Australia for the coming week, which the NSW Rural Fire Service says would be a very good thing.
If this @BOM_NSW rainfall forecast comes to fruition then this will be all of our Christmas, birthday, engagement, anniversary, wedding and graduation presents rolled into one. Fingers crossed. #NSWRFS #nswfires pic.twitter.com/R9VfD0bqu2— NSW RFS (@NSWRFS) January 12, 2020
