Call of Duty Endowment Defender Pack Appears on Microsoft Store, to Help Veterans in Need

By Sam Quirke,
A Call of Duty Modern Warfare C.O.D.E. Defender Pack has just appeared on the Microsoft Store — well, the Australian store to be exact, but it's likely to hit other stores later today. The Pack contains a bunch of cosmetics, and all profits will go towards helping military veterans in need across the US and UK.

Defend those who defended our freedom! Support civilian careers for military veterans through your purchase of the Call of Duty Endowment (C.O.D.E.) Defender Pack for Modern Warfare®! Pack includes The Defender Pistol cosmetic weapon variant (including custom themed optic and reticle), weapon camo, watch, weapon charm, weapon sticker, 2 environment sprays, 3 emblems, and 2 calling cards!

Call of Duty Endowment has been around for a while, as has the tradition of releasing a DLC pack to players that will directly aid veterans in need, specifically to assist those struggling to get back into the regular workforce. The long term goal is to get 100,000 veterans back to work by 2024. At the time of writing, the Endowment is well on its way to 60,000 success stories. The fund spends on average over $500 to assist each veteran; the fund's website alleges that the U.S. government spends just $3 and change. The average starting salary from the program in 2018 was almost $60,000; allegedly well above the national median.

The pack is available for a limited time only — once the $4 million target has been achieved — but the prices in US and UK have yet to be revealed. (The Australian price is $14.95 AUD.) The pack includes:

  • The Defender Pistol cosmetic variant, with custom themed optic and reticle
  • Weapon camo
  • Watch
  • Weapon charm
  • Weapon Sticker
  • Two environment sprays
  • Three emblems
  • Two calling cards

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare rolls out tomorrow, October 25th.
