Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is currently in Season 6 and has several exciting crossover bundles with The Haunting event such as Ash Williams from The Evil Dead, Hellsing’s Alucard, and Lilith and Inarius from Diablo 4 and developers have now revealed their plans for November.

Activision took to X, formerly Twitter, to announce that Call of Duty is getting a new crossover with Dune before fans move on to Modern Warfare 3. It stated: “The most ferocious warriors in the known universe – the Sardaukar, are coming to Call of Duty.” Both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone will be getting a new Dune bundle in the in-game store on November 1.

The announcement tweet did not mention what’s coming with the bundle but the main focus of the bundle will be the Dune Sardaukar operator. For those who don’t know, the Sardaukar are the Padishah Emperor’s elite military force and have a unique fighting style that makes them very dangerous.

As the Season 6 of Modern Warfare 2 was announced along side The Haunting back in September, they were several leaks and speculations about the Dune crossover. The Haunting event arrived with several bundles with Halloween versions of several maps including Vondel, Al Mazrah, El Asilo, and Embassy, coupled with jump scares during matches and the Spawn-themed battle pass.

The Call of Duty x Dune crossover is now confirmed and although the bundle details are still not in, the character skin and two weapon blueprints seem to headline the bundle. The weapon blueprint is shown in the X/Twitter post and includes the Ordnance weapon platform from Modern Warfare 2 with a drum magazine.

The Sardaukar outfit also features three stripes on the chest plate and fans think it is to promote Modern Warfare 3. Since Dune doesn’t fall into the Horror genre, this bundle was likely supposed to drop when Dune: Part Two would launch, which was initially set to release on October 20, 2023, and then was delayed to March 15, 2024. However, Call of Duty decided not to wait for another few months and is now dropping it before MW3’s launch.

The Dune Sardaukar bundle will be available from November 1 in both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone.

The bundle will be available in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone starting tomorrow, November 1. Although Activision did not reveal an official price for the operator, it is expected to cost players somewhere around 2,400 COD points or $19.99. Players can expect several other items in the Dune bundle as the Nicki Minaj bundle that dropped earlier had a vehicle, skin, emblem, and more and the Dune bundle could bring something like that too.

Activision has also announced that all the weapon blueprints, operators, and cosmetics will be transferred to Modern Warfare 3 with the Carry Forward program and the Dune Sardaukar bundle will also transfer over so players worried about buying the bundle only for a few days when Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is just on the horizon might go on and just purchase it.

The Call of Duty and Dune crossover is also expected to be the last Call of Duty crossover for quite some time since collaborations only arrive spring of next year after a new game release. As for Modern Warfare 3, the game releases on November 10 on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms, and players who pre-order the game, will get early access to the campaign mode on November 2.
