From Godzilla to Snoop Dogg, there's been lots of additions to Call of Duty: Warzone that nobody ever asked for, but Infinity Ward delivered anyway.

This week, they've gone and done it again. To mark the Qatar World Cup, Warzone has now added several Operator bundles featuring three top-flight football players: Messi, Pogba, and Neymar.

It confirms rumours that suggested Neymar and Pogba would be featuring in the newly launched Warzone 2.0, with the added addition of Lionel Messi.

The new operator bundles were announced via the official Call of Duty Twitter on November 29, and are now available for players to purchase in-game.

The Messi Operator Bundle can be picked up for 2400 COD Points (around £13-15 on Playstation and Xbox). It includes a Messi skin, an 'Atomic Flea' submachine gun, a 'Blue Thunder' rifle, a Messi finishing move, a tank skin, and additional themed charms, stickers, and emblems.

For the same price, you can also pick up the Pogba and Neymar bundles, which feature the same amount of goodies themed around those players.

Not all fans are excited about the addition of top-flight footballers to Warzone. Several Twitter users complained that Messi's avatar 'looks like Cesc Fabregas'.

Others are asking for different footballers, including Ronaldo, or some of the England squad. "No Harry Maguire bundle?" wrote Twitter user @NickMabz.

One user, @sympouk, even wrote: "Help please… I bought the Pogba bundle and during Warzone he keeps dropping his gun and falling over, is this normal…".

This will give players the chance to return to beloved Battle Royale map Verdansk using their smartphones.
