Tim's lines in the promotional teaser for the upcoming iteration of Call of Duty were:
"All we need is this! Scope? Scope? No scope. You see what I did there? You got it, right? Hah!"
Fans celebrate TimTheTatman getting featured in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II
Fans were delighted to see their favorite content creator making an appearance in a teaser video for one of the biggest gaming titles due to be released soon.
Several high-profile streamers and influencers congratulated the former Twitch streamer.
FaZe Jev was intrigued by the weapon TimTheTatman was seen holding during the teaser video:
DrLupo loved the attire TimTheTatman was donning and hoped that fans would get to keep the outfit in-game.
Controversial YouTube figure Tom "Syndicate" wanted to know if Tim would feature as a playable in-game character.
Popular esports caster and co-owner of Full Squad Gaming Jake Lucky posted the teaser on his social media handle and was happy for the content creator.
Fan reactions to Jake Lucky's thread were a bit more polarizing compared to TimTheTatman's tweet. Some fans were not happy with his inclusion in the game and wondered if it was a "joke."
Some Twitter users mentioned that they would prefer to see Call of Duty professional players featured in the promotional videos instead of YouTube/Twitch content creators.
Twitter user DirtyRiceBryce (@BricksCooking) provided a reason for Tim's inclusion by mentioning the large viewer base he commands.
Some fans wanted to know if the YouTube Gaming sensation would feature in the final game or if he was just making an appearance to promote the game.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare II is one of the most awaited gaming titles and will launch on October 28, 2022. The announcement came after Infinity Ward revealed the official artwork of the upcoming game last month on the Call of Duty blog.
Fans can tune in to watch the campaign gameplay during the Summer Games Fest hosted by Geoff Keighley on June 9.
