Activision teams up with Monster Energy next month for special Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2-branded packages, with the chance to win free stuff packed right in.

What kind of free stuff? the Monster Modern Warfare 2 Giveaway will be handing out 1,000 copies of the Modern Warfare 2 Hardened Edition; 5,000 map pack codes for a pack planned for a spring 2010 release; 10.000 Modern Warfare 2 premium themes for the Xbox 360 or PS3; and free cans of Monster Energy, of course. Each package comes with a code on the inside that can be redeemed at a special Modern Warfare 2 section of the Monster website, once it goes live.

The codes can be found in specially marked Monster Energy 4-packs. 6-packs will also be available exclusively through Sam's Club, each of those granting access to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Combat Training Experience, an exclusive online event being hosted by Infinity Ward this November.

While I'm all for complicated marketing relationships and the chance to win free stuff, I have to question Activision's choice to send out a free 4-pack of energy drink to the Kotaku writer least likely to ever drink an energy drink again.
