A few days ago, Gameluster reported the impending arrival of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo as an operator in Warzone from May 20. There were even rumours of another ’80s action star landing within the revamped 1984 Verdansk map. Much in keeping with the Cold War era of Warzone’s third season which launched toward the end of April, Bruce Willis’ John McClane from the Die Hard franchise has received his very own fact sheet on the Call of Duty Twitter account.
This surely means that the Die Hard hero will soon be a playable operator within the battle royale. So here’s a rundown of the key facts we should know about “COWBOYMCCLANE#0070030.”
First of all, Cowboy McClane has 73 kills to his name, an impressive feat. This number tallies with the number of kills across all five films in the franchise, beginning with 1989’s Die Hard until 2013’s A Good Day to Die Hard. Across five matches, the fact sheet confirms McClane is unbeaten for five while clocking up ten hours of game time.

This fact sheet is similar to Rambo’s in-game operator, code-named Survivor John, who boasted a rather more impressive 552 kills across five games, (and seven hours played).
Currently, it is unknown when we can expect John McClane’s debut in Warzone, but if the release is following that of Rambo’s we’ll be sure to see a teaser trailer soon.
In other Call of Duty news, there are fears that Call Of Duty 2021, while on course for release later this year, may not be as commercially successful as previous titles before it. According to Tom Henderson, a renowned industry insider, Activision are implementing a “recovery road map”.
The next title in the series is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the same team behind 2017’s Call Of Duty WWII. With strong links to the franchise’s signature World War 2 roots, particularly the 1950s and Korean War, a potential title was revealed as Call Of Duty WWII: Vanguard.
