Just in case you didn’t think Call of Duty could get even crazier, Season 3 seems to hint that Godzilla himself will show up to wreak havoc.
Call of Duty has released the Season 3 Classified Arms trailer, in which the team discovers a mysterious device while searching for the smoke gas released by the Nazis.
The device sends an audio signal that can be heard at the end of the film. The audio itself is a bit choppy, but sounds suspiciously like Godzilla’s signature roar.
YouTuber PrestigeIsKey posted a screenshot on his Twitter account showing the audio running through a spectrograph and finding the words “Monsters Are Real.” And another Twitter user responded with a repeating sound of Godzilla’s orca-like sound matching the audio from the trailer. These two clues strongly suggest that the famous Kaiju is making its grand entrance into Warzone.

Activision has attempted to tell an overarching story for Warzone’s battle royale mode, beginning with the Modern Warfare reboot in 2019. Since then, each successive Call of Duty has incorporated some of its worlds into Warzone’s grand narrative. Recently, the original Verdansk play area was destroyed and replaced with Caldera after the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard.
The inclusion of Godzilla would represent a radical change from the semi-realistic feel of Call of Duty games (other than Zombies mode). This could be an attempt to bring together Fortnite’s successful partnerships with third-party properties like Marvel, DC, and Naruto.
Every IGN Call of Duty review
However, Call of Duty has previously included licensed material in the game. Rambo, Jigsaw from the Saw horror film series, and John McClane from Die Hard were playable Operators in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. More recently Snoop Dogg joined the lineup as operator.
Call of Duty Vanguard, the latest in the franchise, launched to lukewarm reviews. We found the single-player campaign to be highly polished, if a bit lacking in variety. The multiplayer felt basic and unconvincing despite running on the Modern Warfare engine.
