* BiasSteamroller: The franchise is a serial victim of this. Due to being one of the largest FPS franchise, it is often bashed by reviewers or random internet goers who simply did not like the first person shooter genre. Complaining about something inherent in the genre, like "All you do is shoot at things" is a very common criticism.

* AcceptableTargets: The ''Call of Duty'' franchise as a whole has become this ''for the entire Internet'', now that [[{{Creator/Bungie}} the developers of]] [[{{Franchise/Halo}} that other franchise which everyone claimed was the cancer killing first person shooters]] have moved on. (And come back into public view, but the ''Halo'' hype seems to have started again.)

This reached the point that footage from ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyInfiniteWarfare'' wowed audiences at E3 2016... until the ''Call of Duty'' title came up on screen, silencing the cheers.

* SequelDisplacement: A vast majority of the fanbase have never played the original game, ''United Offensive'' or even ''Call of Duty 2'', largely because the current ''Call of Duty'' fanbase consists of Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers, and the early games were PC exclusives before being ported to consoles (with the exception of ''United Offensive'', which still has not seen a console release).

* SnarkBait: Due to its popularity, lots of people mock the ''Call of Duty'' franchise, particularly its [[RealIsBrown cinematic hyperrealism]] and how it appeals to the rowdy "dudebro" demographic as well as [[PeripheryDemographic pottymouthed kids and teens]] attracted by the violence. Related memes, such as Major League Gaming along with ProductPlacement for Doritos and Mountain Dew, are frequently mentioned and used when making fun of the series.
