Kevin Durant Reports for Duty

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
Phoenix Suns star Kevin Durant will become an operator in Call of Duty, outfitted with exclusive weapons, moves, and more.

Kevin Durant is entering the Call of Duty universe as part of the gaming franchise’s Season 03 Reloaded midseason update.

The 35V and Boardroom co-founder is now an official operator — that is, a playable character — in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and mobile counterpart Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. Durant is reporting for duty as part of an exclusive limited-time store bundle dropping on Thursday with Season 03 Reloaded.

Durant’s operator isn’t the only KD imprint coming to COD. His character is also getting two weapon blueprints that reference his nicknames. One weapon has been coined the “Reap This” automatic rifle blueprint, and the other is the “Easy Money” sniper blueprint. Both were uniquely built for Durant’s operator.

Here are a few other Durant-specific features included in the bundle:

  • The “Deadly from Downtown” finishing move
  • The “B-Ball” weapon charm
  • The “Ankle-Breaker” loading screen
  • The “Hoops” sticker
  • The “KD Baller” animated emblem

Durant’s character will also be featured in the fourth season of Call of Duty: Mobile, “Veiled Uprising,” beginning Thursday, May 18 at 5 p.m. PT. The gaming franchise is running a Reaper Rumble-themed event that allows players to earn KD Tokens by playing different modes. Players can use these tokens to unlock KD-themed rewards within the mobile game, including new weapons.
