Warzone Operation Monarch is the king of all LTMs

Noxious green gas nips at my ankles, bullets whiz past my head, and a rumbling that resembles the sound of an oncoming tornado puts my heart in my throat. I go prone and desperately try to reload my LMG, which takes up far too much of my precious little time – the gas is encroaching. I slam the clip into position and get ready to run for an outcropping of rocks about 50 yards ahead of me, but just when I stand up to make my move, a piercing, otherworldly scream shakes my very skeleton and an impossibly bright streak of bluish -white light slices through the air in front of me. It’s the last thing I see before it all goes dark.

This is typical for a round of Warzone Operation Monarch, Call of Duty’s best ever limited-time event. In it, Warzone Pacific is invaded by Godzilla and Kong, and you are but a lowly foot soldier scrambling around their titanic feet like a helpless little ant. I haven’t had this much fun in Warzone in months, and I haven’t encountered a crossover event that feels oh-so-right. If Warzone stayed like this forever, I’d be happy.
