“You’ve turned her into a teenage boy with long braided hair”: Call of Duty Lara Croft Operator Skin Royally Trolled for Being Too ‘Masculine’

Call of Duty Lara Croft Operator Skin Royally Trolled for Being Too 'Masculine'

Call of Duty’s developers and Activision revealed the in-game model of Lara Croft operator on 4 September 2023. They tried to implement a bit of modern design on her 1996 version, resulting in one of the strongest interpretations of Ms. Croft ever. Albeit, it’s 2023, and Call of Duty takes a more photorealistic approach to her character rather than the cartoonish appearance that we saw in Fortnite in 2021. However, being the fanbase of Call of Duty, people weren’t delighted with her design as they believed that developers made her way too masculine.

Fans of Call of Duty weren’t entertained at the sight of the new Lara Croft operator. Several comments have been made about the visuals of the character, and fans believe that it’s simply not that good. Since the release of her bundle, players haven’t been soft on her. Harsh criticism is being made towards the Tomb Raider Operator.

It was seen in the clip that Lara Croft is stomping her way even though she should have been agile and nimble. One of the players commented on this, “Where’s the grace or the style? Lacking a lot of what made Tomb Raider good here. At least she’s rocking the dual pistols, and it looks like she’s tall, but still a miss for me.”

Another added under the tweet, “She looks like she wants to talk to the manager.”

“Think her finisher should simply be screaming ‘it’s ma’am.'” Other players shared their opinion under the post as one more chipped in, “Making male characters female instead of making female characters cool.”

Lara Croft operator has stuck to the classic look, the braids along with the throwback outfit and the backpack while equipping the dual pistols. This version of the characters isn’t any less assured and battle-scarred than the Lara Croft from the Survivor trilogy of Tomb Raider games, welding bow and arrows!
