    My god this has got to be the worst thought out promotion I have seen-

    "The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ‘Rank Up XP‘ promotion spotted by Forbes will put codes on bottles of Mountain Dew and packets of Doritos crisps that give players double XP time in-game.

    So when you take a headshot from a high level sniper rifle, you won’t be able to tell if they’ve played more of the game guzzled a truckload of potato chips. Perhaps the guy heading a server with every unlock is quite good at Call of Duty, or he’s just consumed more litres of luminous energy drink than you.

    There’s apparently no limit to the lengths marketers are prepared to go to shift a big new game, but cheapening your entire unlock and experience system for the sake of a drinks promotion crosses a line we didn’t even know existed."

    From PC gamer- http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/09/29/c...rfare-3-promotion-offers-free-xp-with-snacks/

    Where will this end? They should rename the series Call of Dewty and replace all of the grenades with exploding cans of soft drink. Claymores can be packets of Doritos that explode when enemies approach, shredding them with a cloud of tasty nacho shrapnel. Then they’ll see a kill cam replay of their maizy death, sponsored by Pepsi, of course.

    It's Call of Duty. No one has expected anything of it since COD4.

    Why no burgers? Weapon upgrades with each burger, new weapons with each pizza...

    How can people drink Mountain Dew? they started selling it here in the uk and thought I'd try some (I was more taken in by the fact it looks like sewage waste and seem to have low level radiation)

    It tastes like sink cleaner! I nearly puked, I poured the rest down the sink (which hasn't blocked since so at least its good for something)

    live wire is a great flavor. and if CoD had McBurgertown bonus's i'd probably be excited. nothing like 2 double cheeseburgers at 2am.
