Call of Duty is a first-person shooter that is now legendary in the gaming world. It first appeared in 2003 and was primarily focused on World War II. But the franchise has evolved over the years and versions of the game have been also set in outer space, futuristic worlds, and even deep in the midst of a cold war. The appeal of the game to Call of Duty fans is the tactical warfare that they have to master and the team ethics that bring people together online.
Before we look at our deep dive into the gift ideas for fans of Call of Duty, let’s (like a sniper) take a sneak peek at some facts and figures surrounding this monolith of gaming history.
Call of Duty Facts: The Breakdown
