Naruto Fans Spot Hidden Nod in New Call of Duty Game


Naruto has been around for decades and has of course inspired generations thanks to its heroes. Much like Dragon Ball’s Kamehameha, Naruto has seen his most famous attacks transcend anime fandom and take over pop culture as a whole. And now, it looks like one of Kakashi’s best moves is to join that roster with the help of Call of Duty.

The update comes from fans as the videos recently hit the website breaking down a Calling Card challenge. It seems that one of the highest quests in the game asks fans to complete all the melee death challenges to unlock a very special attribute. Those who complete the task will earn the 1000 Bird Calling Card, and yes, that’s a nod to Naruto’s own Chidori.

What is Chidori?

According to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, this big challenge is hard to complete, but it’s well worth the effort. Players who are victorious will receive a calling card that features a white-blue lightning bolt similar to the one found on the Chidori. Also, the name of the jutsu itself means 1000 birds in English thanks to the high-pitched wail generated by the attack.

If you want to earn this calling card, players will need to kill 1000 combatants using only melee attacks. This means that no weapons or even hand weapons like knives are allowed to complete the task. Players will need to hit this kill count with the butt of their gun, so you can see why this task is hard to finish.

Of course, Naruto fans will be the first to add this Calling Card to their collection, and it’s easy to see why. Kakashi’s Chidori is one of the best moves in the series, and its history is long. The deadly move can only be used by the most powerful ninjas who excel in control, aim, and speed. So if you want to prove yourself in Call of Duty, earning this Calling Card would be enough.
