Several leaks and data mining results suggest a new weapon from the anime series Attack on Titan may be coming to Call of Duty: Vanguard.
According to a recent leak, it appears like Call of Duty: Vanguard will be collaborating with the critically acclaimed manga and anime series Attack on Titan. According to the leak, various weaponry from the Attack on Titan anime series will be included in the newest iteration of the Call of Duty video game franchise. It is not known when the new content will be released, though.
The release of Call of Duty: Vanguard was met with a great deal of excitement, as it represented the series’ first return to the World War II theatre of conflict since 2017’s Call of Duty: World at War. Call of Duty: Black Ops III was well-received by fans as it promised to be a more “boots on the ground” experience, with less emphasis on the high-tech gadgetry and weapons that have grown so prevalent in recent Call of Duty games. The game also promises new content for the series’ famed battle royale mode Warzone and new objectives for the game’s popular zombies mode. Nevertheless, if a recent leak is to be believed, it’s possible that the futuristic content in Call of Duty isn’t entirely set in the game’s past.
Call of Duty leaker Zesty (via DualShockers) claims that datamining has revealed a list of weaponry that could be heading to Vanguard in the upcoming Call of Duty game. One of the weapons on the list is a sword, which is classified as a non-katana melee weapon. Attack on Titan is a video game that Zesty believes is related to the weapon because of the descriptions of the weapon, “aot swords” and “s4 me swordtitan.” According to the report, future collaboration between the manga series Attack on Titan and the best-selling military shooter franchise is possible, with a weapon from the manga series perhaps appearing in the game.
Also, it looks like we are getting some sort of 'Sword' melee weapon that isn't the Katana.
It is codenamed 'aot_swords'/'s4_me_swordtitan' and when I read 'AOT' I just think of 'Attack on Titan'…just a tinfoil hat theory though

Fans have already begun guessing which of the legendary Attack on Titan swords will be included in Call of Duty: Vanguard in the upcoming game. Most fans believe that the sword in question is Attack on Titan’s Levi Ackerman, which is the most popular theory among them. Levi fights with his sword backhanded, which makes for an unusual combat technique. This may make for a fascinating addition to the cast, and it might also pave the way for the inclusion of Levi and other Attack on Titan characters as skins for Call of Duty. At the very least, the notion of one of history’s most ruthless Titan killers going after Nazis is intriguing.
However, it is surprising that Call of Duty: Vanguard has only been out for a week and that there are already rumours of fresh DLC in the works. Call of Duty has previously collaborated with pop culture figures such as Rambo, Scream’s Ghostface, and Die Hard; nonetheless, the inclusion of such content in a new game seems a little premature. For the time being, however, the disclosures should be treated with caution, as there has been no conclusive confirmation of anything.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is currently available for purchase on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S platforms.
