Loot Crate Limited Edition Call of Duty: WWII Crate Review

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Loot Crate unveiled an exclusive Call of Duty: WWII Crate to pair with, at the time, the upcoming game. This isn’t available anymore and shipping out later than expected – so it wasn’t in lock-step with the game’s release.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Box: Call of Duty: WWI Crate

The Cost: $49.99 + shipping

The Products: “A one-time-only, limited edition collection of exclusive Call of Duty®: WWII collectibles, apparel & gear. Game not included.”

  • Exclusive Call of Duty®: WWII gear, collectibles and more
  • $90+ USD value

The box came with 7 exclusive items related to the Call of Duty game. Originally, this was noted as arriving before December 25th – but there were delays and that promised date was missed, which meant a lot of missing boxes at holiday time!

The box’s card was an accordion style information booklet.

Cycle through to reveal everything in the box.

Airborne Division Pin – Value $5?

Like all Loot Crates, it starts with an exclusive pin. The Call of Duty pin features the Airborne Division.

Military Hoodie – Value $35-40?

The big item of this exclusive crate is a heavy-duty hoodie.

This is definitely built for colder weather – which I can absolutely appreciate right now!

The only graphic features a cool, spray painted, Cal of Duty logo.

Anti-Aircraft Shell Water Bottle – Value $20?

One of my favorite items of this crate is this shell-shaped water bottle!

I mean, it’s just cool looking standing on its own.

It even has this really nice little inner lid that’ll make it extra water-tight. Press the button to get your water.

Military Mug – Value $15-20?

If you’re looking for a drink at home, take a sip of coffee from this Call of Duty military style mug.

This is styled like a tin cup used in the field at that time. Again, it’s branded with that Call of Duty star emblem.

Infantry Socks – Value $10?

For infantry representation, you’ll get a pair of socks.

As you can tell from this picture – I most certainly received two different sizes of socks! Very odd – did this happen to anyone else?

These are branded with the Call of Duty logo on the foot, and the Infantry insignia on your calf.

Propaganda Tin Sign – Value $15?

The next item is a propaganda style tin sign.

Again, it’s got that design with a bit of patina to give it that aged look.

Call of Duty Playing Cards – Value $5-10?

The final item in the box is a set of playing cards that feature different armed military member and branding from around the game.

Verdict: While there is value for the price, they’ve been relying on heavy-duty hoodies as their hero item for this type of crate a bit too often for my liking. Outside of the items, the shipping delay definitely ruined a lot of the luster for this exclusive box. Since it was initially promised to arrive before Christmas, once the delay came in, a lot of people were left rightfully frustrated. Fingers crossed that they’ll get all of these shipping issues fixed, and soon!

  1. After numerous emails and fb posts, i finally received a shipping notice……unfortunately this box arrived on Dec. 29. I had purchased it as a Christmas gift for my boys. I am so done with Loot Crate. I used to sub to so many of their boxes, but due to finances; I had to cancel them all. This was prior to all the shipping issues. I did place a Vault order in the spring last year and it took two months for me to get that order. I seriously doubt I will be giving Loot Crate any more of my money. With regards to this box, the least they could have done was refund the shipping cost considering very few people got this box prior to Dec 25. Just my opinion.

  2. I reached out to them as soon as I saw my box was scheduled to arrive after Christmas and this was their response after the standard apology:

    “To compensate this, you may like to check this out for Holiday Gift Cards. Print a greeting card for your gift recipient to let them know they’re getting the coolest gift ever! Just type in your message or just print it out and write it by hand!”

    Seriously??? Telling me to give my kid a crappy piece of paper in lieu of an actual gift is not quite the “making it right” I was looking for. I also was not aware it came with a pin since my son didn’t get one in his box.

  3. Oddly enough, our socks were mismatched as well! I will not be reaching out to customer service because after getting zero communication and receiving this box nearly a week after Christmas, I will never order from them again. Period. When compared to the stellar customer service I have experienced after my winter Pusheen mix up, Loot Crate seems so underwhelming to me. Sad, since they were my first subscription box and used to be so much fun. 😢
