Call of Duty Modern Warfare players are posting for free exclusive content on Twitter following an announcement from snack brand Doritos.
On December 2, Doritos tweeted to its followers, “Ready to take your COD game to another level? Unlock 3 exclusive item drops in @CallofDuty #ModernWarfare. Just follow us, and then tweet @Doritos #DoritosDewDrop.” Since then, social media users have been following and tweeting the food giant to gain access to the secret in-game content.
The promotion is also affiliated with Mountain Dew and its energy drink, Mountain Dew Game Fuel.
Once people tweet Doritos, the company private messages the user a code for them to input into the game. The exclusive content includes a calling card, a watch and a charm, with screenshots shared on Twitter once redeemed. According to the games’ developers, Activision, players can redeem their codes in the game by:
- From the PlayStation Home screen, select the Store icon.
- Select Redeem Codes at the bottom of the menu.
- Enter the code.
- Once the code has been entered correctly, select Continue.
- Select Confirm to accept the Terms of Service.
- Select Continue to complete the code redemption.
- From the Home screen, scroll right to Store.
- Under Categories, select Games.
- Select Use a code. Or, say “Xbox, use code.”
- Sign in if prompted.
- Select Or enter the 25-character code, and then enter your code.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare was released officially on October 24 in North America on the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. Since its release, it has had several updates, used to fix bugs in the game, with the latest one, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update 1.10, about to drop. The latest update will bring the Season 1 Battle Pass to the game.
Twitter users flocked to follow the Doritos Twitter page, with many getting creative with their posts. One user, @Sinisterii, tweeted, “#DoritosDewDrop @Doritos You already now what’s going on,” with an edited meme attached.
For some, the waiting was too much to bear. User @fbfdounut writes, “Modern warfare players waiting for @Doritos to give them their #DoritosDewDrop,” with a picture of Baby Yoda, while other users attached pictures of grumpy faces to their tweets.
For any Call of Duty Modern Warfare gamers who have yet to claim their code for exclusive content, follow Doritos on Twitter and tweet them with the hashtag #DoritosDewDrop. Newsweek has contacted Doritos for comment on the promotion.
