With the Australian fires raging on, many people have sought to make donations towards wildfire relief efforts. To make it easier for gamers to lend a helping hand, Infinity Ward recently announced it will be donating 100% of the proceeds from “Outback Relief Pack” purchases in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Infinity Ward donating Call of Duty ‘Outback’ purchases to Australian fire relief
On Twitter, Infinity Ward shared info regarding the Outback Relief Pack in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In the image, Infinity Ward indicates they will be donating 100% of Activision’s proceeds from each purchase of the pack from now until January 31.
Purchases made before the announcement will also be donated according to Infinity Ward, so if you purchased the pack last week, your purchase will still be donated. For those interested in purchasing the pack, it has a lot of really cool items all bundled together.
Included in the Outback Relief Pack are Australian-themed cosmetics including the Bushranger operator skin, a koala charm, stickers, calling cards, a finishing move, and a blueprint for the Sniper Rifle Charlie weapon.
The Outback Relief Pack is priced at 1,800 COD Points in total. If you’re lacking the necessary COD Points, there’s a bundle in the shop that will get you 2,400 COD Points priced at $19.99 (USD). With it, you can buy the Outback Relief Pack and have 600 COD Points left to use however you like.
If you’re uninterested in this particular pack, have it already, or want to donate even more money towards helping wildfire relief efforts in Australia, you can donate directly to charities like the Australian Red Cross. There’s also a really helpful article from USA Today with a full list of places you can donate to from the Red Cross to the Australian Koala Foundation.
Overall, it’s nice of Infinity Ward to make it easier for Call of Duty players to donate to a good cause, and the Outback Relief Pack is definitely something worth a purchase. What do you think? Will you buy the Outback Relief Pack, or have you been donating to charity directly? Comment below!
