That didn't stop a lot of females from playing older CoDs.

There's been female soldiers since the medieval times, possibly even earlier.

So the Israelis (IDF) are the only modern army to treat women as combat troops (theres universal conscription) - things that are a matter of public record - some women become infertile due to the physical demands, women literally cant carry the kit their male counterparts have to because theyre not strong enough, womens training/testing has been drastically eased several times and women still struggle to meet these lowered standards of fitness/strength/stamina and women suffer far more injuries fulfilling their duties/training than men.

What this means - women are far less capable than men and they suffer more trying to achieve a lower standard of effectiveness.

The question isnt why arent women (combat) soldiers? But - why would you ever put them in infantry combat roles?

The only situation it makes sense in is the current ' total chaos ' in the middle east because muslims believe that being killed by a woman prevents them being martyred and going to paradise. Daesh f***ing hate fighting the Kurdish womens brigades because of this.

As for Cod - its just following the prevailing wind, games (and everything else) get bad PR for only featuring male characters these days...because Americas *redacted*. So female, black wehrmacht soldiers...

There are. One was a British spy during Germany occupation of France. Another was in Africa where her unit was surrounded by German and she broke free driving out while being her transports were full of bullet holes. Also she was a flight attendant and then medic.(Susan Travers). Most of these, you can look it up on Google. Just type in women warrior of ww2.

Isn't it only the multiplayer? Who gives a crap about that? That isn't telling a story or trying to be accurate, let people look and be however they want.

If it's only multiplayer, then it's even more of question as to why they're there. You could justify it more, given historical context and a certain campaign time period.

Some people are triggered by stuff they don't like, even if they can ignore it and doesn't affect them at all.

Oh, and regarding women in WWII...

Also, LOL at some people whining about the game sacrificing historial accuracy for the sake of adding female playable characters in Multiplayer. Yes, because a game where you can heal from bullet wounds by not getting shot for a few seconds, or with a mode about fighting zombies, is all about realism.
