Call Of Duty: Warzone players can raise money for charity and earn rewards by running

Activision has announced a new in-game charity campaign for Call of Duty: Warzone, inviting players to run 100 virtual miles to win a $1 million donation from Activision Blizzard to the Call of Duty Endowment.

The event – ​​called Call of Duty Veteruns – starts on May 26 and runs through June 3 within Call of Duty: Warzone. As part of the effort, Activision Blizzard will donate $1 for every 10 virtual kilometers traveled on foot in Warzone, with a cap of $10 per player and $1 million in total.

In addition to helping raise money for the Endowment, which helps put soldiers into new careers after their military service, players will receive in-game business cards. Players will receive a rare bronze card for traveling 25 km; an epic silver card for 50 kms; and a legendary cold card for 100 km.

Players can also sign up to put their name on the online leaderboard to see how they stack up against others in the event. Additionally, players can tweet @CallofDuty with their gamertag and the hashtag #CODVeteruns100K to see their stats regarding the total number of kms driven and funds donated.

Activision Blizzard said it is running this campaign to commemorate the recent milestone of putting 100,000 veterans into new jobs, ahead of the charity’s timeline to reach that number. As previously announced, Activision Blizzard is donating an additional $30 million in funding to the Endowment, spread over the next five years.

The Endowment is also funded in part by fans who buy digital content for Activision games. In 2021, Treyarch released a DLC pack inspired by former Army medic Tim Hobbs for Black Ops Cold War, with proceeds going in part to the Endowment. There was also the Revival Challenge at the Call of Duty Warzone for Military Appreciation Month, which raised money for the Endowment.

It’s not immediately clear what impact, if any, Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard could have on the Endowment. Keep checking with GameSpot for the latest.

As for the Call of Duty series, Infinity Ward will release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on October 28, and PlayStation users will have their first access to a multiplayer trial.

Activision Blizzard has been under pressure and scrutiny lately for its workplace culture, as well as the controversies surrounding its boss, Bobby Kotick, who is accused of knowing about and covering up cases of sexual harassment and abuse.
