There are tons of small nods to movie franchises spread throughout Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The developers hide these references throughout maps, gear, and occasionally flavor text on items within the game’s world. Every time Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fans discover a new Easter Egg, it almost seems like three more make an appearance in its place.
A common Easter Egg that many fans noticed was the addition of the Twin Pines mall from Back to the Future. While the mall was almost identical, it showed a love for movies among the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War developers. This film appreciation has appeared again as a new weapon charm offers an interesting piece of information in its description.
In a photo shared on Reddit by wpm_turtles13, they bring attention to a small weapon charm. The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War weapon charm is a small alligator head, but this is only the start to the Easter Egg. In the description, the weapon charm makes reference to “Chubbs,” who is a famous character from the film Happy Gilmore. Chubbs teaches Gilmore how to golf, and during this process, he talks about losing his hand to an alligator. Although he kills the alligator later on, Chubbs ends up dying anyway due to an unusual chain of accidental events. Players are now charged with the duty to get revenge for Chubbs by bringing the alligator’s head with them on the battlefield.
The comments are filled with tons of references to gold being “all in the hips,” a famous line by Chubbs. Call of Duty is a shooter game and does not have much to do with golf, but this direct connection has inspired many fans to get revenge on Chubb’s behalf.
It is surprising that this charm has gone unnoticed for so long, but fans are happy to share in a community love for this famous golf movie. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is sure to have other Easter Eggs that reference famous pop culture items. There is no telling how many remain undiscovered by this dedicated community.
Until then, fans can bring this charm into battle with full knowledge of its reference material. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has several possible weapon charms, but this alligator head is more iconic than just a weapon decoration. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fans are sure to declare war on alligators while charging into combat with this small Easter Egg reference.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
