Neymar Jr. Available In MW2 & Warzone 2.0 – Pogba & Messi To Follow

Neymar Jr. is available in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0. With Pogba and Messi two more football legends will join the game soon. Check out this video to see them in-game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has barely been released. People are still getting to grips with the new Spec-Ops and the wildly complex Gunsmith, and yet, we are already getting some pretty crazy store bundles. But we shouldn't be too surprised; microtransactions are the name of the game in 2022.

This time it's for a football event to celebrate the World Cup. It's a controversial World Cup, for obvious reasons, but Activision just love that sweet dollar. So what kind of items are we getting for this event? Well, we've just seen a couple of players who are coming to the game as playable characters: Messi, Pogba and Neymar. Let's take a look.

As you can see, they haven't completely abandoned the aesthetic style of the game in favor of football jerseys and shorts. Instead, and to the delight of a great many fans, they've used the footballers' faces and bodies, but they've dressed them in appropriate outfits for MW2. This is a positive sign for future skins.

Neymar Jr. Starts Off The Event

Neymar Jr. is the first of the trio to be available in the in-game store. His Neymar Jr. Operator Bundles went live on November 21.

It includes the following cosmetic items:

  • Operator Skin: Neymar Jr.
  • Finishing Move: All Kicks
  • Weapon Blueprint: The Feared (Bas-P)
  • Weapon Blueprint: Longball (S0-14)
  • Vehicle Skin: Ocean Gem
  • Weapon Charm: Neymar Jr. 10
  • Sticker: Speed Boost
  • Emblem: Outrun

Pogba's bundle will be available on November 25, followed by Messi's bundles on November 29.

What do you think about their compromise between real-world pop culture and the mil-sim art style of the game? Would you rather they produced more colorful and diverse skins, or are you happy that they're preserving the feel of the world?
