The Call of Duty Endowment has launched a charity Challenger Pack for gamers to buy in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops — Cold War.

The Call of Duty Endowment is a charity started by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick to place veterans in the U.S. and United Kingdom in high-quality civilian jobs. It has placed 77,265 veterans in jobs to date.

The Challenger Pack is available now in Call of Duty: Black Ops — Cold War, which debuts on November 13, and it will debut in Warzone in December. All of the net proceeds from sales go to the endowment, and it will be available until $5 million is raised.

The pack includes “The Stripe” Marksman Rifle Weapon Blueprint, which is a three-round burst gun with multiple pre-configured attachments and a tiger-themed patriotic camo.
