Call of Duty added the rubber ducky-themed Bath Time skin, which is part of a larger bundle. This continues Call of Duty‘s trend of occasionally releasing fantastical, unrealistic skins.
Like many multiplayer games, skins have become a central part of Call of Duty‘s player experience. Skins are also a somewhat controversial matter for some Call of Duty fans, with some wishing for the series to stick to mil-sim skins while others enjoy the brighter and more exciting outfits. It seems that Call of Duty tries to appease both sides by adding plenty of grounded skins alongside more outlandish ones. This resembles Fortnite‘s approach to skins, which similarly features a huge range of styles. In 2023, Call of Duty also mimicked Fortnite by introducing streamer-themed skins. It seems that Call of Duty is continuing with this approach following the addition of its newest bundle.
Call of Duty Update Disables Controversial Attachment
A new Call of Duty update disables a controversial attachment for one of the most powerful weapons currently available in Warzone.
Call of Duty added the Wildlife Wanted: Rubber Duck bundle to its Store section. The bundle costs 1800 CoD Points (about $18) and includes the Bath Time skin, the Rubber Rampage Pulemyot 762 blueprint, The Ducky DM56 blueprint, a What the Duck weapon sticker, the Duck This calling card, the Quackin’ Up weapon charm, and the Bath Time emblem. The Bath Time skin is the headliner of the bundle, which sports a yellow and black outfit topped with a rubber duck head. The skin stirred up some controversy after it was revealed last week. However, plenty of fans sided with Call of Duty‘s decision to add more unrealistic skins, emphasizing that it’s just a game.
Call of Duty’s Wildlife Wanted: Rubber Duck Bundle
- Costs 1800 CoD Points (about $18)
- Includes the Bath Time skin
- Rubber Rampage Pulemyot 762 blueprint
- The Ducky DM56 blueprint
- What the Duck weapon sticker
- Duck This calling card
- Quackin’ Up weapon charm
- Bath Time emblem
The bundle’s lower price relative to other Call of Duty bundles, which are often priced at 2400 CoD Points or higher, is probably due to its lack of tracer weapons. This will probably come as a relief to some Call of Duty fans after a tracer-less bundle was released in December for 2400 CoD Points. Despite the new bundle’s lack of tracer weapons, it offers pretty good value for 1800 CoD Points and will likely become popular due to its fantastical appearance.
As is often the case, the series had other skin drama going on as well recently, following the re-introduction of Call of Duty‘s Gaia skin. This skin had major visibility issues after its initial release, but the development team seems to have fixed the problem with the reworked version.
As for future Call of Duty skins, leaks seem to indicate that Modern Warfare 3 could implement a Warhammer 40K-themed event sometime in the future. Following the event’s potential launch, Warhammer 40K-themed skins will likely be released as well. These skins will probably be similarly outlandish but with a much darker tone.
