Activision Blizzard has announced their Q1 Financial Results today, and in the press release, has revealed that the in-game content sales in Call of Duty (which is basically the Supply Drops, DLCs, and more) is setting “new records” for the Call of Duty franchise.

Call of Duty is setting new records for in-game content sales. The franchise more than doubled the number of players who chose to purchase in-game content while maintaining average revenue per paying user.

Starting with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Activision introduced purchasable Supply Drops. In Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Activision brought COD Points, an in game currency that players can buy to get additional Rare Supply Drops in Multiplayer or Liquid Divinium in Zombies.

    Fuck Activision.

  • Dubble Killzz

    Lmfao they fucking retards they talk so much lies and shit. I guess infinite warfare also will have supply drops and 1 Ton DLC. RIP COD , tomorrow bf reveal πŸ˜‰

  • Tiempo

    breaking news: MW2 and MW3 only available in supply drops, buy now!

  • J4MES

    A big thank you from Activision to all the people that wasted money on Supply Drops on Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 basically. Feels like they’re rubbing it in the faces of the community to counter all the negativity with Infinite Warfare. Wonder how much profit they made from people buying Gingerbread skins for AW…

    • Ak74u

      In my opinion microtransactions and specifically cod’s they are overpriced. Most of those transactions will only be used for a while I understand you’ll be able to keep it forever but they honestly don’t take a lot of effort to make a crappy camo and skin. And the main reason they are overpriced is because they are virtual items that you can’t really do anything with them

      • Dickmissle

        I always thought it was stupid to pay 2 dollars for 3 damn items the reason I do not like aw is bal obsidian steed

      • Altered Vista

        halo does the same putting in pointless emblems and reskin armors and bs visors that no one will ever see. halo req packs are worse.

  • Element115Will

    If they release MW Remastered seperate, itll be in supply drops.

  • Chris Ilott

    Stop buying them people and the system will change!

  • Dangelo95

    Boots on the ground have more of a chance of coming back in a new COD than supply drops being removed! I don’t like the idea of opening crates with kryptokeys or having to buy them just to get sosmthing I should be able to unlock through progression

  • Tested

    It’s a scam. I spent over $1500 and still not got all guns. I rather them just do gun dlc and sell them at $100 or something.

    • madshooterguy

      I spent $0 and i got some good stuff

      • Ak74u

        Not possible at least not for me

    • StrongSquadPebbleSwords

      “$1500” Go touch yourself you freak.

  • Activi$ion

    Activision just shows us how big of an asshole they are, im not gonna say “dont buy supply drops”, because you can buy whatever the fuck you want with your money, but when you buy COD points, youre only supporting them and helping them with their shitty black market… cant wait toget COD4, if supply drops are in IW, i will sell the fucking game ASAP.

  • ScOott

    Lol everyone calling activison assholes, we the Cod fans are fecking assholes for buying them, I have never purchased one, and never will shame on you people who have.. Looks like they are here to stay.. Thankyou guys..

    • Mick

      I’m with you too bro. Never purchased a supply drop in my life, never will. I still have those 200 free cod points that they gave us back in January or whenever they did. And this way, I can finally get the extra create a class slots from pre ordering the game πŸ˜€

    • Ak74u

      I have never purchased one either not even in AW and I had to go through suffering getting killed by obsidian steeds the whole time of the game because I refused to pay supply drops to get the godly weapon.

      • Mick

        If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t get my obsedian steed until the end of summer 2015.

        • Ak74u

          I still don’t have it I only have the speakeasy and the Hbar3 insanity which kinda makes up for it but still. My kd went to a .86 at launch because I never had anything good while other people got lucky. And I already stopped playing it since last year but I’ve managed to raise it to a solid 1.5 kd with whatever I got

          • Dickmissle

            I got a speakeasy I had a Goliath but redeemed not knowing it was good

          • GamerTag: Robustss

            I had both within a week by the time I was done playing I had 3 steeds and 2 speakeasy’s and I didn’t buy any drops.
            The steed was only mega op pre patch though. The speakeasy was meh anyway the recoil was awful

    • Rorke File

      I didn’t even touch a COD game since Ghosts. I will get the COD4 remaster separately and play that tho. I hope COD4 isn’t going to be filled with micro-transactions.

      • Mick

        I guess that explains why your profile pic is still Rorke?

      • kuljuarenot

        You have to purchase Infinite Warfare to get COD 4 remastered, they will not be sold separately.

        • fr4gbob

          Where was that stated? only thing I saw was them saying they currently had no plans to release it separately, not that they never would!

          I’m pretty sure that once the sales for IW start dropping, they will release it to rake in more money from the patient ones who waited, they would be fools not to.

        • Rorke File

          I will buy the remaster from someone who only wants Infinite Warfare.

    • GFY

      Why would anyone even consider spending money on digital junk? I have over 1000 cryptokeys just sitting there because there is nothing worth getting out of supply drops.

      I have never purchased a supply drop in either Advanced Warfare or Black Ops 3! Had they released ‘camo’s’ (like BO2 or Ghosts), I may have been tempted to spend real money but NEVER on a RNG loot crate!!!

    • Joey

      lets pretend things are the way they’re thought of and work the way they’re thought to work – as such, you have a point. but you come across as a douche. i’m not saying you are a douche; you’re just expressing yourself kinda…douche-ly.

      you might respond, “takes one to know one.” touchΓ©.

      • ScOott

        Lol dont worry I accept the title of douche.

    • Felix Lamirande

      That’s why they’re still making Call of Duty’s lol

    • Eric

      Lol who are you say shame on people who have bought COD points? It’s all supply and demand. People obviously want them (since they are buying them), so Activision will continue to put them in games. There is actually nothing wrong at all with the COD point system

      • ScOott

        Then more fool them.. We should be able to get any weapon or cosmetic item we want when we want, I don’t care for cosmetic, if it was just cosmetic the supply drop system wouldnt be so bad.

        the fact many of us will never get to try the new weapons is bulshit, I really want the hg40, how can I get it? I can’t and probably never will, which isn’t just a shame it’s frustrating especially seen as other people who have paid the same price for the game as me have it..

      • DΓ‘vid MΓ©szΓ‘ros

        You really seem to miss the point

    • I don’t think many people would have purchased them if it didn’t get you ‘pay to win’ type guns from them this time

      • fr4gbob

        They don’t, the guns are worse if anything, certainly not pay to win lol

    • VenomSnake421

      ur no one to judge us on what we buy so stfu

      • Lumis

        Anyone can judge anyone. Your no one to tell anyone not to judge. Doesn’t mean what anyone judges matters though.

        • RebornAngel666

          Anyone can tell you what to do in this new generation, but sorry but I’m little older and I don’t have the same thinking.

      • ScOott

        I am, ur decisions effect my favourite franchise, I can judge u all I like..

        • TheDreaded VVolf

          bro, Objective play right here. Nailed it.

        • VenomSnake421

          ur fav franchise is completely destroyed with all the futuristic crap.

          • ScOott

            I agree, it’s heading down hill.. Hopefully now that video got disliked so much we will get back on track next time..

          • VenomSnake421

            nearly 500k dislikes lol

          • ScOott

            Lmao thats crazy, ive said in the newest article I’m happy the video got disliked we might get the Cod we all know and love back now Activision have seen this..

          • VenomSnake421

            somebody said if it reaches 500k it will be the 24th most disliked video on youtube, and its currently the most disliked gaming video of all time.

          • ScOott

            It’s on 800k lol..

          • VenomSnake421

            Somehow I still believe it will outsell BF1, CoD4 Remastered is a must own imo.

    • Lumis

      Why waste money on dlc add ons for a game that will only be played for a few months? I remember people spending lots of money in AW supply drops. Now they don’t even play that game. Supply drops, cryptokeys are all gigantic waste of money.

  • Activi$ion
  • Ak74u

    See I told you guys they don’t care about us all they care about is making money, all they give a shit about is making sales I don’t know how far they want to go with microtransactions but I’m already upset we don’t get any of the DLC weapons. We should of got them included in the season pass like we used to

  • W1LL1AM04

    Thanks a lot guys. We asked you to ban the Supply drop system and you didn’t listen and now were almost guaranteed they will be implemented in Infinite Warfare. Way to go COD Community

    • J4MES

      The biggest problem is that people moan and bitch about supply drops but buy them in droves anyway and that’s why Activision laugh all the way to the bank in the knowledge that no matter what they do; they’ll always come up smelling of roses.

    • Ak74u

      Advanced supply drops
      Black market drops
      What’s next?

      Infinite supply drops

      • Drasadex

        “Orbital Drops” lol

  • Laddie

    Dick move Activision. They pretty much said “fuck you” to the fans. After countless players shit on Supply Drops, you act like its all fine because of “record breaking sales”. How does this make it any better? Well good for you Activision, congrats! Supply Drops are still cancer and you’re still ruining COD along with every other kid falling for your bait.

  • Rorke File

    Guys it looks like Battlefield is going to be set in a World war setting. This is going to be a really interesting release of two shooters.

  • I’m sure it’s not hard to break records with something like an RNG system like supply drops

    • Ak74u

      It’s not, it’s simple, just release a ton of shitty camos and gear and call them “new” , then target the 12year olds that fall for everything and there ya go, now you are successful

      • ScOott

        Please don’t take this the wrong way because I respect u and u clearly feel I don’t from a comment u made earlier to me, but… u fell for it as well at one point, so Its not just 12 year olds.. One moment of madness has put an tiny bit more money into activisons hands giving them that tiny bit more incentive to carry on, imagine how many thousand of people have made a one off payment and regretted it.. It all adds up man..

        • Yeah, back in Advanced Warfare when they released the Advanced Supply Drops, I paid like $5 for like the 5 pack or whatever. I don’t even if I’m remembering this correctly, but all it took was for me to waste about 5 dollars to realize how much a waste the supply drops were.

  • GFY

    Some black market blackout movement these frauds have started. Activision is laughing all the way to the bank.

  • Dick J. Richardson

    Could the idiots buying these things stop please?

  • Tuhny Montana #SusGang

  • bmac74207

    Its all the youtube guys who waste thousands on it trying to get a baseball bat. Its bs to us longtime cod fans who buy season passes every year rgats supposed to get us everything but screw us poor people

  • Axel Noir

    I love the dlc but as a player that normally doesn’t buy supply drops, I’m getting the shitty end of the stick. I have yet to get a new gun and I have been playing BO3 since day one.

  • fr4gbob

    I know I’m pretty much on my own here, but I think the Supply Drops are great, I seriously do not see a downside to them, on one side, we have the chance, no matter how small, to get free weapons…. on the other side, unless you are a complete muppet and spend money on COD points, you lose absolutely nothing at all if you never get anything from them!

    I managed to get the MX Garand, which I never use, the Wrench, which I never use and the NX Shadowclaw, which is awesome….. and all totally free!…. sure, I would love to get the HG-40 too, but if I never get it, I lose nothing!

    Like I said, win win….. no downside.

    The fact that they are making so much money from them is great, it means they will continue to put more and more into them for me to get for free, everyone spending money on COD points is doing me a favour and making sure I don’t have to πŸ™‚

    • Wraith

      Speak for yourself (as you are lol) but I haven’t gotten a single thing and I’ve been here since day one. Opened hundreds by now and have gotten Hallucination camo for like 50% of those.

      • fr4gbob

        But you have not lost anything either! unless you were stupid enough to actually spend real money on them….

        • Wraith

          But I didn’t gain what some other people gained. Which is where the problem lies.

          • fr4gbob

            Lots of people have won the lottery too, but I haven’t…. that’s life, you can’t always have what other people have, it’s hardly a problem!

          • Wraith

            It’s a problem when it could have been easily fixed. Give everyone the free weapons. Everyone’s happy. Not like they have to go around giving everyone 100 million dollars to make them all lottery winners.

          • fr4gbob

            But they made them to make money with, they are a business, would be absolutely pointless them making them just to give them away, sure, it would make people happy, but they can’t put happy in their bank account!

            I think its great they give people a chance to get them for free, its more than they need to do…

            Speaking of which, I just got the FFAR and the HG-40 for free!!! supply drops are fucking awesome πŸ™‚

  • Beast Mode

    my point exactly. the cod community is full of bipolar people. you hate and make a huge fuss about supply drops and then help it break records. now infinite warfare is getting almost 500k dislikes but yet pre orders are off to a strong start on pace for best seller. i should drop kick all your candy asses…then proceed to the peoples elbow

    • “pre-orders are off to a strong start” probably because of CoD4

  • I give it a month before i trash the game and keep COD4R, fuck SDs.

  • Michael Romo

    Or… Or… ORRRR, and hear me out here, play the game and EARN cryptokeys

  • Ghost

    Fuck you Activi$$$ion πŸ™‚

  • Jon

    Crazy…..a guy I work worth has dropped over 5K on clash of clans over the past 3 years..just crazy to think how much money people spend on stuff like that….lol

  • Mel Banh

    And this is why people need to stop buying CoD, starting with Infinite Warfare. No game sales = no chance to make $$$ off of supply drops and their gambling crap. Now if only people would unite together and take a stand… because this is ruining it for all of us.

    • Group_935

      What you’re saying is never going to happen. The consumer keeps wanting more Call of Duty’s with Supply Drops. The beauty of capitalism is that we don’t have to deal with people like you.

      • Mel Banh

        You’re trying way too hard there. But whatever floats your boat.
