Activision has officially announced the new guard dog skin called “The Wolf” for Call of Duty Ghosts. The skin will retail for $1.99 and will be available first on Xbox tomorrow, December 12th. It wasn’t specified if it was for both Xbox consoles and no release date for PlayStation or PC yet. We’ll keep you posted.

    Lol 2 dollars for a fucking skin

    • TheShadowReaper

      RIOT Games charge you from 2 dollars up to 25 dollars for a skin, i believe the price is just fine. you bitch for no reason. there’s always someone stupid like you on the internet.

      • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

        get him.

      • Brandalf

        Ya, because if someone else does it, it must be alright…..lulwut.

        Honestly if this actually added something new to the game it wouldn’t be so bad. The problem being this wolf mesh and texture already exist in the game we bought. They’re simply importing it into the MP. This is something they could have accomplished in literally less than 10-15 minutes. So no, it’s not worth my $2.

        • TheShadowReaper

          then dont buy it? what’s the point in bitching about it? and its only 2 dollars, such a heavy price! you wont be able to buy a piece of pizza from your local bakery. such a loss.

          • Brandalf

            When I say it’s not worth my $2, it means I won’t be buying it. It may only be $2 out of your pocket, but you gotta think big picture. Let’s be conservative and say 250k players purchase this that’s $500k for less than 20 minutes of work. It’s a perfect example of what is wrong with AAA development these days. Hell at least the camo packs for BO2 required a texture artist to put in some actual design time.

            This may not be true for those that game on console but I could spend that $2 on much better things in the gaming space. For example, support a kickstarter project I’m interested in, buy a game on sale from Steam or I could spend it on the humble bundle website and support charity and indie developers while getting games extremely cheap.

            All of that being said, I stopped playing Ghosts after 3 weeks. It’s rather telling when I can spend $10-$15 for an early-access indie title and get more polish and optimization than from an IW COD title.

            This game has put me off of the concept of pre-ordering games in general. One of the only games I’ve purchased that makes me feel actual shame for supporting the developers of said game.

          • pj

            why do still come here and check on cod if you havent played it in weeks and dont want to pay ยฃ2 for a skin, why moan about something you havent played or will buy,

          • Brandalf

            Because even though the COD franchise has become something that I hate, there is still some hope in me that one day they will take the franchise back to it’s roots and/or the franchise will die. The abominations that have donned the Call of Duty name in recent years are pathetic and I can’t believe the franchise has fallen so far from glory.

          • ht iinsaniity

            why don’t you tell us how you really feelโ€ฆ

          • TheShadowReaper

            with that mindset you should think how much the local bakery gets from people that buy cheese pies, or when you buy a shirt you should also consider how much money the store will make when you and x amount of people buy that shirt and generally stop buying everything, sell your house so you stop paying the water and electric bills cause they make too much off of you and others and generally better die cause you waste too much oxygen when you breath.

            yeah, amazing logic. keep going with that.

          • Brandalf

            You’re examples are completely off base with what I’m trying to say. In all of your examples I would be provided a service and/or items that require people to actually do their job. This type of DLC is despicable and any self-respecting person wouldn’t support such practices. Also the oxygen comment was cute and shows you maturity.

            Shame on me for not supporting lazy developers who work for publishers who are just looking to make a quick buck at the expense of their consumers. Activision is a perfect example of why developers these days are looking for new avenues of funding. I have principles and I stick by them.

          • TheShadowReaper

            so we call being a hipster emo having “principles” these days. the hypocrisy level is over 9000…

            and no, you know nothing about lazy developers. you sound like someone that started playing games 2 days now and have an opinion about everything already. keep your hypocrisy and bullshit to yourself. i dont want any of that.

          • Brandalf

            Heh, I’ve never been called a hipster or emo. So that’s new and gave me a good chuckle. Yet again you have a need to make assumptions and labels for me. All of which are again, completely off-base. FYI I’ve been gaming for about 16 years now, not to mention the fact that I am actively pursuing a development career.

            People have different opinions, that’s the beauty of life. The fact that you feel the need to insult mine because you find something “wrong” with it makes me sad; and frankly says a lot.

          • TheShadowReaper

            good luck with your career. and if you succeed on joining one of the big forces one day dont forget to cleanse gaming from all these “bad” games in your opinion.

            nothing else to say here. lets just agree that we completely disagree about everything and call it day.

      • Levfreak

        lol is free to Play, ghosts is 60 bucks for a 4h campaign, rip off Zombies, and a shitty ass MP lol. we already payed 60. dnt make us pay for this shit.

      • Random Dude

        lol

      • Random Dude

        Why so serious?

  • HenryDF

    I really see no point in this whatsoever….but it looks awesome ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t see why they didn’t do a reindeer skin too though, after all, it is Christmas :/

    (by the way, any idea if you’ll be able to toggle the skin used?)

    • Random Dude

      :p

    • alteredizzy1010

      because of the campaign with riley and the wolfs

      • HenryDF

        I know the origins, but is there any point in it? Why should people play $2 to make a killstreak look different?

        • TheDarkWaypoint

          Because we can!

          • HenryDF

            “Why should I shoot this man?”

            “Because you can!”

            …slightly flawed logic. ๐Ÿ˜›

          • TheDarkWaypoint

            I meant more like:

            “Why should I be able to get extra customization with money”

            “Because I can!”

        • ModForLife

          Epecially if you can’t reach the killstreak

        • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

          It’s not forcing you to buy it so I don’t see why not haha. The more content available, the better.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I hope so. Maybe you could press a certain button when selecting the guard dog to toggle the skin?

      • HenryDF

        Yep, hopefully. If I get it, I don’t want it to always be a Wolf. Maybe there’ll be an extra option in the section where you can customize how you look that allows you to change it.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Yeah, it could be under “Special” with the ghillie suit. or they could add a whole new section, who knows.

          • 1-1Ghost

            I have it and they put a whole new group for gaurd dog, just go to customize then its at the bottom

      • gumbie7

        I bet it will be like the recitals or gun camo. You will select it and then it will give you the option of which one to use? Just a thought.

    • HASHTAGYOLOSWAG

      pro Sw4g tits alpha bravo charlie nipple ghosts

    • MarxDominatez

      No!!! It’ll make the game look childish

      • HenryDF

        I was taking the piss ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Zach

    Haha, this is awesome, can’t wait to see what IW will skin next. As for the complainers, I have no idea what your problem is, as this DLC provides no advantage what so ever. Glad to see we’re getting more than maps this year, just like with BO2

  • Mitch

    Am I the only one on here who gets annoyed to shit by the Guard dog? Incredible range, knows where enemies are through walls and a shit ton of health.

    • DanDustEmOff

      Dogs can do that they a great sense of smell and sound. That’s why the military, police, fire department etc use dogs to go in burning buildings, find drugs, explosives etc..

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Yeah but they can’t fly 15 feet, land directly on an enemy, and rip their throats out. They also can’t withstand being shot more than 10 times and still run at you. What’s your point?

        • Cody

          My shepherd will leap and grab your ass from 15 feet. Granted he wont withstand a full clip, but he will find you anywhere! Besides if the dog died that easily no one would use it. Not to mention the Flak Jacket he is wearing would be pointless.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I think a sniper shot or a shotgun blast to the face should put the dog down. Not roll over and shake it off. 90% of the time, you shoot the dog when it’s running at you, so it would hit the front and not the vest. Plus, with this skin, he has no vest. And have you ever seen the dog get you from around a corner? It turns in mid-air around the corner and bites you. I’m not saying it should be super easy to kill, I’m just saying there should be some balancing mechanism.

          • xSupaScopa

            I have an idea. When the dog is shot say 5 times (or 1 time with Sniper/Shotgun) it is slowed down by 25%. This keeps repeating until it is killed. Also, if very injured, it runs away rather than comes at you.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            The slowdown is good. And the run away when shot would make it a little underpowered.

          • xSupaScopa

            I mean when really injured (like 15 or 10 health) they run away to protect themselves and heal extremely slowly over time (5 health every 20 seconds?) idk there is definately a way for this to be more balanced.

        • DanDustEmOff

          15 feet is a bit of an exageration. My point was dogs can track people without seeing them. It’s also a game if you want realism play Arma. Any bullet would incapacitate anyone so why not make every gun a one hit knock down to last stand?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            It’s not an exaggeration. I swear those dogs can fly. I’m not saying they have to e realistic, I’m saying they need to be nerfed. And if everyone died with one bullet, the game would suck. I’m just saying it’s a little stupid that I can spray a whole clip into a dog that’s running towards me and still die.

          • DanDustEmOff

            I think a dog takes about the same amount of damage as an IMS, I always tend to use armour peircing rounds or extended mag so the dog dies pretty quick. I also think that once the dog hits the “flying” animation it takes no damage.

            IW are not usually one to nerf stuff so I cant see it happening tbh. Look how long it took for Dead Mans Hand to get a nerf. Armour peircing rounds are your best bet till then.

      • Mitch

        I know, but it just weird that sometimes I’m capping my flag, suddenly my dog takes off and kills someone.
        Also, every time a Guard Dog lunges at me I get the impression they are invincible to my bullets while they are mid-air.
        Also look at what SiftBlade said.

        • Jet045

          ^This. I’m fine with the health (2 shotgun shells at close range, 2 sniper shots, or 1 throwing knife.) My problem is that once it starts the lunge animation, it’s over. You stop shooting before it hits you so you start the death animation, making it so that you have no chance when it ~5 ft. from you.

        • DanDustEmOff

          They probably are, once they hit the leap animation it’s all over. Like I said to sift blade 15 feet is an exageration. It’s 7-10 feet at best. If the dog had health regen then I would say it’s deffo OP but I think it’s pretty well balanced for a five kill streak.

  • Gabriel Pietroluongo

    2 bucks for a killstreak skin is too much. in blops 2 you paid 2.50 for reticles & camo for all guns & knife

    • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

      Then don’t buy it.

      • Gabriel Pietroluongo

        i wont

        • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

          Problem solved.

  • Rai

    With the focus of customization in Ghosts it’d be cool to see them do a TF2 type of thing…..well just with the outfits, skins, gear. Not with the bonuses the items give.

  • Devon

    I will 100% be getting this. A wolf, as my protector, mauling noobs as I lay down fire. Epic.

    I wonder if they’ll tweak the audio to sound more menacing than the dog.

  • Stick Man

    He’ll look good with that Nvidia Fur thing on PC.

  • Clayton Graviett

      Swag = Gay

  • Meeoww

    I’d rather have a cat

  • Ryumoau

    I really like how the wolf looks but i don’t think i’d personally spend more than $0.49 on a skin.

    • TheShadowReaper

      its clear to me that you havent played League of Legends. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Xecho

        Yeah because no one on here plays LoL we play CoD

        • TheShadowReaper

          speak for yourself

  • lumps-of-a-god

    $2 for just a skin for a Guard Dog and nothing else….

  • exeterman2

    Need a nyan cat skin. Please infinity ward.

    • George

      How about fuck no.

      • TheShadowReaper

        how about fuck yes?

      • exeterman2

        It’s a joke bro.

  • kyle

    Why would i buy something for a useless killstreak. It looks cool but the guard dog sucks. All it does is walk around with its nose up my butt until i get killed then tries to kill the enemy. It rarely ever growls and never goes after anyone else they killed me.

    • K.E.M

      People complain it’s op.

  • George

    Would be great if Wii U actually got this.

    Please?

    PLEASE?

    PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE???

    • Dalek

      EXPLAIN, EXPLAAAAAAAAAAIN!

      • George

        Wii and Wii U haven’t yet gotten DLC on any CoD, though we SHOULD’VE started getting it for Black Ops II >:(

    • Keshav Bhat

      From what I’ve heard, Wii U is not getting Ghosts DLC. We’re still trying to confirm 100%. We’ll post if we hear anything.

  • Jacob Jones

    That wolf will only look good on PC because of the Nvidia Fur Tech option which shows all the individual strands of hairs and moves them in motion as the wolf moves

    • Jkice

      Cool stuff

      • Jacob Jones

        Yeah it looks amazing look up the Witcher 3 wolfs and they look like that in the campaign!

    • Xecho

      Lucky PC

    • TheShadowReaper

      i really want to buy it cause i have Nvidia but i dont play the game anymore so probably i wont. maybe when i start again full force on Ghosts i’ll give my 2 pennies and have a ferocious wolf by my side.

  • Br4dthebe4st

    I dont see why everyone is complaining about it being $2.. Infinity ward aren’t forcing you to buy it, if you think its not worth $2 then don’t buy it. It’s that simple!

    • IamAguest

      Ikr. It adds to the customization and it doesn’t affect the gameplay. I mean you may shit a few more bricks when you see a wolf running at you instead of a dog….

  • Cody

    Big ups for more DLC. There still should be more added weapons and such throughout the year. Take a look at Counter Strike, which is basically where all this Modern Warfare originated, they added on so much they never needed a new game. Granted it was for PC and many 3rd parties could create and distribute their own skins and maps. Point being that so much was created a new CS was never needed. This will not be the case as more and more CODs will come out, but take it from past competitors and give the public what it wants. Not what you see fit. Counter Strike kept its fans happy for YEARS with all of the add-ons. As for all of you that complain i ask you Why? Are they making you buy this to play? If you don’t have this will you be at a disadvantage? No. I have been an avid player for years now and every time I see a new map pack I am just dumbfounded. Not by the maps, but by the things people say about them. If you hate the game don’t buy it. If you think you know that maps will be shitty don’t buy them. It seems everyone I play online against is just bitching. “Ohh he’s using a shotgun” “hard scoping vagina” “camper” “bull shit i hit that guy” The list goes on. Play the game and be glad you live in a country that gives you the option of playing war instead of having to fight init.

  • groog

    i think it should have been for free, sort of sick of all the micro transactions in games now

  • some1exampe1

    ya, it’s only good if you get 5 point/kill or 4 with hardline. for $2 they should also add a new voice over.

    like “wolf kia” or lower the health and allow you to call in two, because it’ll be epic to hear “wolf pack ready”.

    it should be .25 cents.

    • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

      25 cents? How would they ever make money? I bet you also think gas should be free.

      • CGkillZ

        Well it’s a game it shouldn’t be $2 for a camo on the dog.

        • some1exampe1

          exactly, if every camo, perk, gun, map etc were $2 the game would cost $15,000.

          a fair price would be to divide all the customizations by $60 to get a unit price and sell it at that.

          • TheShadowReaper

            this guy and his amazing calculations.

        • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

          Then don’t buy it. See the beauty of choices?

  • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

    People still complain about optional DLC? You guys need something new to do.

  • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

    Gamestop still has this listed as $3. I don’t understand haha.

  • TechnoPoison

    Made a video on this, check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP_13Tx4Dts

  • CGkillZ

    For $2 that wolf needs to tea bag the enemy for me and have a deep black guy voice.

  • Batman

    LOL, a streak skin? Seens fun, but it should be free with season pass

    • Batman

      I love this game, I must get this skin

  • BaggiestMantis3

    Its for xbox live and xbox one because at the end of the video.

  • BaggiestMantis3

    Says it

  • 4Aminute

    they can make a disco ball out of a night owl as well ๐Ÿ˜€

    • TheShadowReaper

      i would buy this so hard if it was an option!

  • NiftyGam3r

    Not impressed… Now if they release a chihuahua skin, i’ll get it

  • yardis

    shouldve been a wolf from the start. it looks 10X better than the default dog.

  • Nick Tialavea
  • F12CHARTREUX

    Meow…?

    =/

  • dmncko

    I’d buy this if every time I called in Riley the song “Who let the dogs out” played for a few seconds.

  • Levfreak

    What a fucking rip off. they should make this unlockable.

  • iKushtyy

    Would be nice though if they could do little things like this for free, as a thank you to fans.. Just a little thing every now and then, a little treat goes a long way to keep people happy sometimes..

  • ccrows

    Any details on the 12/12 106MB Patch for the 360?…

  • Delelis

    Nothing says Merry Christmas like being killed by a Wolf!

  • Ed

    i wish i could pay 1.99 to get rid of the guard dog killstreak all together. the worst thing for COD since martyrdom.

  • Choppabro2psn

    Come on, this is cool and all…but before they do any dlc, they should make sure their core game is perfected, like come on, they release patches where things need to be fixed, but it all really seems the same in the end… Especially the “improved spawn logic” patch they had.

  • patrick

    I downloaded the season pass but today i bought the wolf pack and it still charged to my credit card. Someone help please .. do you have to activate the pass somehow?

    • Robin Huber

      it’s not included bro

  • 1-1Ghost

    I have it and they put a whole new group for gaurd dog, just go to customize then its at the bottom.
