Call of Duty Warzone teases Rambo skin and bow for May 20 release
Character is one of several 80s action heroes coming to the game
Call of Duty Warzone’s Rambo skin will be released on May 20.
A teaser trailer for the skin shows the iconic action movie character portrayed by Sylvester Stallone equipped with his signature compound bow and flaming arrow.
Warzone is set to introduce skins for a number of 80s action heroes also including Die Hard’s John McClane.
The skins will arrive this season and tie in with Warzone’s new 1984 Verdansk map, which went live in April.
Publisher Activision started hinting at the movie collaborations last week with cryptic tweets and a website for the fictional company “Nakatomi Duct Cleaning”. Nakatomi is the name of a company featured in the original Die Hard film.
VGC understands there’s more to come, and when we spoke to developer Raven Software last month it hinted as much.
“I’d like to point out that in the slides we showed you [earlier], there was a little ‘classified’ section for ‘80s Action’… there is some cool stuff we’ve got planned for the 80s, so feel free to speculate on that,” creative director Amos Hodge said in our Call of Duty Warzone interview.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone recently introduced a new weapon, the CARV.2 tactical rifle.
Available via the weapon’s in-game challenge and the Plastik Prototype store bundle, the burst-fire weapon “stands out in the tactical rifle class with its high bullet velocity output, offering powerful damage, solid recoil control, and a large ammo pool from the start”.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 3 launched with three new weapons (PPSh-41 SMG, Swiss K31 sniper rifle, Ballistic Knife). The AMP63 machine pistol and Baseball Bat melee weapon will be added mid-season too.
Activision Blizzard confirmed this month that Sledgehammer Games is leading development of 2021’s premium Call of Duty game, which chief operating officer Daniel Alegre said “is looking great and on track for its fall release”.
He added: “This is a built for next generation experience with stunning visuals across campaign, multiplayer and co-operative modes of play, designed to both integrate with and enhance the existing COD ecosystem.”
Activision president Rob Kostich also said the game will include some “really fun integration” with Warzone.
