Following the Rambo teasers earlier in the week, it now appears that Die Hard protagonist John McClane is next in line for a Warzone appearance.

John McClane is the next 80s action hero teased for Warzone

This time, the teasers for McClane coming to Warzone in some form are pretty obvious — the official Call of Duty Twitter account posted a tweet that directly references Die Hard in several ways:

  • Nakatomi — the name of the building which is the setting for the first movie
  • air ducts — which McClane famously uses to get around the building
  • Yippee ki yay — McClane's famous catchphrase

This teaser follows on from last week's teasing of John Rambo, fellow 80s action hero. He was teased in a 'Warzone Report' promotion that revealed player stats in Warzone. 

In the tweet, "SurvivorJohn#1009062" had stats that roughly align with the Rambo film series, as pointed out by Polygon

  • 5 games played = 5 movies in the series
  • 7 hours played = the rough length of all movies combined
  • 552 kills = the confirmed number of kills Rambo has under certain rules, according to the wiki

With Verdansk currently in a 1984 variant, tying into the events of Black Ops Cold War, a series of 80s action heroes seems like the perfect topic for a crossover. One can assume that a full reveal is imminent, so stay tuned.
