Know your audience: Call of Duty: Ghosts is getting cannabis-themed gear

Call of Duty: Ghosts

Let’s be, ah, blunt: Call of Duty is packaged and sold to an audience of young men free from responsibility – and that isn’t us according to our Call of Duty: Ghosts review – and isn’t afraid to be explicit about it.

Clearly, somebody at Infinity Ward has noticed a certain amount of demographic crossover with another product. They’ve capitalised on it with the new Blunt Force character pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts.

“Arm yourself with the Blunt Force Character Pack and enemies will experience chronic defeat at your hands,” blurb Infinity Ward. “The pack comes complete with a leafy uniform and 2 different headgear options.”

Just in case you were under the impression that the subject would be approached with any subtlety at all, here’s a picture of that headgear:

The Blunt gear comes in one of three new character packs sold for $1.99 on Xbox Live. Here’s everything that’s arrived in that same update:

Personalization Packs

Abstract Personalization Pack – $1.99

Hydra Personalization Pack – $1.99

Skulls Personalization Pack – $1.99

Tattoo Personalization Pack – $1.99

Leopard Personalization Pack – $1.99

Nebula Personalization Pack – $1.99

Character Packs

Inferno Character Pack – $1.99

Blunt Force Character Pack – $1.99

Bling Character Pack – $1.99

There’s no word on a PC release for the Blunt pack yet, but expect the usual month-long DLC delay. Ganja bear the wait?
