UPDATE 3: Activision has officially announced The Wolf skin. Read our new post for more information.

UPDATE 2: GameStop has updated their website listing again, and changed the price of the item to the previously stated $3. We’re waiting to here more.

UPDATE: GameStop’s official website has added a listing for this new skin, and it’s available for $2 for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Here’s the link. The item isn’t on the Xbox Store yet, so until it is, you can’t download it. We’ll let you know when it goes live. And GameStop’s official description:

Transform your Guard Dog into a menacing wolf in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer. With this character skin, every time you use the Guard Dog Killstreak in multiplayer, you will be calling in The Wolf to watch your back and take out enemy players.

A new image has appeared online on Reddit which suggests a new skin that can be added to the guard dog in Ghosts will be available for $3 in the near future. This new skin can be added to the guard dog only in MP.

At this time we don’t know if this part of a bigger micro items plan like black ops 2, or just a one time thing.

UPDATE: According to the user who posted this on Reddit (beta_crater), these skins will be available on Xbox 360 starting December 12th at GameStop. If so, we should expect an announcement in the near future.

    They should first nerf that dog before they start working on skins!

    • Bigi345

      Nah, dogs are way to easy to kill with armor piercing rounds

    • Smokeydogg

      the dog is easy to kill you just suck

      • James K

        That’s only the case if you have a few meters of distance away from the dog or the dog is already weak. On close quarter spaces, you barely have the time to react before becoming dog food.

        Slash the health of the dog by 50% and it will be fine.

        • Ran Foxymagicks Cooper

          Have you ever tried aiming at the dog?

          • James K

            Heh heh…

            Obviously I do, which is the most common reaction of an advancing dog but players barely have the chance to react if they encounter it a few feet away. I usually inject a few bullets in the dog before it pounce and like usually, it’s not enough. It’s even more annoying when you don’t notice the dog because it’s out of sight or when you’re reloading. A health reduction is fine since Riley can still be deadly at close quarters without automatically be a death sentence for other players.

            While I’m at it, IW should also reduce the proximity of the dog avenging the owner’s death. Riley can race through the map to kill the person who eliminated you during the killcam process. If you’re a sniper or you’re unaware the person you kill has a dog, you would be completely blind sighted. On the flip-side, letting Riley running haphazardly across the map to avenge your death while the enemy or enemies knows it’s coming is suicidal and frankly, a waste of a dog. Sure, you can cut the killcam prematurely for Riley to come back to the player but there are situations where players don’t want to end the killcam for a varied of reasons.

            The first nerf is more preferable to me but combination of the two would be perfect. It beats raising it up to a seven killstreak or despawning when the owner dies.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Have you ever seen the lunge?

          • Jordin

            dogs have the same health if not more as a regular player. add on that it intently kills you on touch and you can’t knife it then it really doesn’t matter if you aim. if your less then a yard away your dead period.

          • Ran Foxymagicks Cooper

            you can knife it if you have a ballistic vest

            it’s like you know nothing about this game

        • Jasy

          I totally agree. I have a 4 bar all the time (with a wired connection), and with the MSBS, it still takes me about 6-7 bursts to kill a dog. Lower the health on the dog and we should be fine.

          • bob

            You have bars? On pc we dont have ping numbers bars or anything to show what our connection is….

      • Raph


    • Take three sniper bullets to it, it’ll be dead easy enough considering it rolls over giving time for another shot.

    • thinh

      Just shoot the dog at a distance and you’ll shall be fine 😀

  • ccrows

    Maybe for guns (depending on how it looks), but paying for skin for a killstreak?

    I’ll pass…

  • Ryumoau

    it looks cool but i personally don’t like spending money on anything other than things that add something new to the experience like a new map or maybe weapon.


    Oh god now more people are going to use that BS streak

    • Baldmanz_RAGE

      That’s the only streak worth using. All the other assault streaks are shit!! But then again this whole game is shit! Besides you can thank the wisdom of Treyarch/Activision for implementing these fucking micro transactions in the first place!!

      • XLKILLA

        That is true. Which is why idk what the point of air superiority support streak is cause there’s never any air streaks to take down lol. The assault streaks are such garbage I don’t even use them. I just stick with specialist.

      • XLKILLA

        Oh god and the IED’s where the worst idea of all. Other then that this game is mostly gun vs gun which I like.

        • SilentWitness

          Yeah i love gun vs gun, although this is camp vs camp!

          • XLKILLA

            Depends on the game mode. Try playing blitz or cranked anything else is a complete camp festival lol. I play domination to. TDM & KC are unplayable with all the campers hiding behind there IED’s.

  • Bigi345

    i find this sorta funny in a way

  • 3 friggin dollars?

  • TomTomTomTomTomTomTom

    the next dlc will be a Chihuahua which you can buy clothes for.

  • Jared

    The next one will be a camo for your IED! Camouflage it even more!!

    • Andrey Martim

      I can’t play without Sit-rep anymore…

      • To all those who say, “oh my god, 3 DOLLARS?!?!”, it’s because unless you live under a rock, Microsoft discontinued its Microsoft points system and changed it to actual currency, like every other system.

        • fsdgasdg

          bo2 camos used to be 2 dollars, not 3.

  • Primey_

    What a terrible idea for DLC.

    • y9ungc4p

      agree, I radar buy a Map Pack, Weapon, or Camo more than a Skin for a Killstreak

      • KilburnItaly

        you “radar”… Good to see the education is a success in North America.

        • Andrey Martim

          Do you realize that there is a world base of CoD Players, and lots of them aren’t americans, also there isn’t just only americans in this site, and that english is not all world’s first language?

        • Oag0

          There’s a thing called auto correct which could have turned his typo into radar you fucking idiot.

  • Dextro_Phoenix

    Why ruin this game with freaking micro transactions, we pay enough as it is.

    • Bmeowmix

      How does microtransactions ruin the game? It’s not like it affects the game other than making it look cooler

  • TheGamerBeast

    maybe it will be just like the Dog Kill Streak but you can choose it to be as a Wolf

    • XenoFlare

      NO WAY!

    • Duke of hazard


  • A skin for the Guard Dog? Seriously? And 3 dollars, WTF!

  • I won’t pay for it unless they would made a Doge skin.

    • xx420xx

      kill yourself right fucking now you autistic cunt

      • Hoss

        Get off the 420 faggot

      • Josh

        Yet you are the one who forgot the full stop. PAR!

      • WOW, much rage, so scare, amaze

      • DOGE

        hey no hurteh doge
        doge is god
        such holy
        many obey
        such pray

        • xx420xx

          fuck off to reddit you fucking faggot

          • Guest

            Look at me, I’m xx420xx:

            Faggot, faggot, faggot, die, fuck off, faggot, faggot, faggot…

      • Guest

        Using strong offensive language makes you look weak as you cannot back up your argument. GET BACK TO YOUR ENGLISH LESSONS PATHETIC CHILD

      • Duke of hazard

        I remember when I acted like a complete jackass because it’s the internet and no one will find me and beat me up.

      • Guest

        Well, well, look who it is-Charlieintel’s internet troll has returned and is back to dish more hate!
        Maybe you should try emerging from your mom’s basement sometime and be productive once in a while you pathetic scum

      • DaMostH8ed

        Karma will bless u sir Good Day

  • I’m accepting of gun camouflage but killstreak camouflage? Is marketing running out of ideas?

  • Work Hard, Twerk Harder

    Yo dawg, I heard you don’t like da dawg, so we reskinned da dawg for a unreasonable price.

    With the joke aside $3 dollars is a pretty big price for such a small thing, even the other micro transactions on BO2 were $2 (if my exchange rate is right, me no americano) and they offered atleast other stuff alongside the skin of ALL your guns.

  • RdJokr

    Consoles don’t even get the dynamic fur thing, so this thing isn’t even worth $3 unless it’s on PC.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      No dynamic fur makes this useless? What?

      • RdJokr

        I didn’t say it was useless, I said it wasn’t worth the money unless there are some other features. PC version was advertised with all that PhysX fur stuff for Riley, guard dogs and wolves, so at least if the skin is released on that, it would be worth looking at.
        Consoles, on the other hand, doesn’t have that feature. So it’s just a plain skin. And ONE plain dog skin isn’t worth $3.

  • Wow

    Needs a Shibe dog DLC now

  • Hoss

    I gonna be freakin pissed when people kill my dog now.

  • BHCMax

    iw can shove their “well laid dlc plans , up their well laid dlc asses” to quote SMJ xd.

  • Ryumoau

    wow just read the update. i guess even these small micro dlc have to go on xbox first. thats just sad. lol

  • Josh

    Same game different skins haha this proves it

    • Epicsand

      Yeah. It is CoD Ghosts with different skins. This isn’t a groundbreaking concept. Other fps games have had microtransaction skins, and so has CoD.

  • smayo

    I myself found the 2 euro weapon camo dlc in bo2 already a rip of, but this is really ridiculous, things like this ( and camo’s imo ) should be part of the mappacks as an extra, not another way to extract more money from loyal players

  • George

    That’s awesome, and it’s going to be available really soon no less!

  • TheShadowReaper

    guys relax its 3 dollars. seriously, what do you expected to be charged for a skin dlc? 0.5 dollars? calm your tits and put your shit together, the price is more than reasonable for the skin and most importantly, you dont have to buy it if you dont want to!

    i dont get what’s all the fuss about. internet people these days… 🙂

    • BHCMax

      If they hadn’t taken mod tools out of PC cod, things like this, or even better things would be created by the community for FREE.. where do you think the ac130 killstreak originally came from? that’s right , a cod4 mod

      • TheShadowReaper

        it wasnt a fan made mod. the ac130 existed in-game from start. as you can remember you could pilot an ac130 in a mission in the campaign of COD4 so it was already there and they decided to include it as a killstreak in MW2. you little “mod tools rule” shit. mods were nice, played a lot of them but after a while i got bored of the same thing after the same thing in mods. after all there is a certain limit of things that you can build with mod tools and they exhausted their use a long time ago. i’m not saying it was good that they removed them but i could give two shits. so stop being an idiot who thinks that ac130 originates from a mod and open your eyes and see that whatever is in the mod tools is already being used in the game else they wouldnt let you use them in the first place. punk.

        • BHCMax

          ooooooo sticks and stones, the thing is, the idea of creating it as a killstreak came from a mod, then iw copied it into mw2, and only the unimaginative of minds gets bored lol, stuff is still being created with cod4 mod tools that are as, if not better than the stuff in the crap broken games iw have thrown out to us

          • TheShadowReaper

            really do you think that they didnt thought about it themselves? you must be stupid. go play some mods, its clear that you do not qualify to play a real COD game.

          • BHCMax

            so tell me Sherlock, in your seemingly infinite wisdom of all things cod, which cod game qualifies as a “real” cod game?

          • TheShadowReaper

            every COD that is developed by a game developer and not some half-assed modder who knows nothing about game developing still thinks its as easy. which means every COD since COD1. shove your mods up your ass.

          • BHCMax

            ok sadsacks, well as long as your happy with your vanilla flavoured life,

          • TheShadowReaper

            i prefer caramel, ty very much.

  • ProlificMF

    I’m most likely dreaming but it makes me wonder if other DLC kill streaks is a happening thing or not.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Probably not. The dog is unique, the other killstreaks can’t really be customized.

      • ProlificMF

        I was more meaning adding new and different kill streaks. Like i say, probably dreaming.

  • 4Aminute

    I just want to see how many idiots will pay for this …….. seriously activision what is this

  • Dogee

    They really should make doge skin

  • Poplur33

    I never understood y treyarc never made the tiger killstreak in bo1 for the map zoo instead of the dogs.. It would be insane attack tigers

  • Dog

    New from infinity ward.. Customize the trinity rocket for 10 quid if you add an extra fiver get the green camo for your guns, it’s red

  • Rated-R619

    I want a Guard Cat ! lol


  • Will it be free for season pass holders unlike that shit bo2 atuff (if legit)

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    Can we get an elephant skin? That’ll be hilarious. Imagine the animation.

  • This is soo stupid!!

  • Legend

    They should make season pass holders get every dlc for free

    • Paul Thomas

      The season pass covers the map packs. So unless you feel like shilling out more to get them all I doubt that will happen. Although one or two free for being a season pass holder wouldn’t be a bad idea.

  • Justin MD

    If it came with this headgear, i’d spend $3 for sure.

  • Andrey Martim

    A skin of a Corgi and I’ll buy ten.

  • Bmeowmix

    I feel as though people rip on microtransactions because they are jealous that they can’t get them. Seriously, I can’t think of any other reason to be mad at a completely optional customization item.

    • Paul Thomas

      I know, and the ones that think their entitled to them because they bought the season pass get on my nerves too.

    • smayo

      Because it open the door to further milk out fans who already bought a game for €50/$60, want more maps ? pay another €50/$60 and now camo’s and ks skins for €2/$3 what’s next ? I don’t mind to pay for mappacks if they are good but asking money for things that could easily be added as a bonus to the mappacks is just sad, It’s already the best selling franchise out there every year but still they squeeze you out of your last euro/dollars for things that don’t really add anything to the game, but sadly enough I will predict that many ghosts players are going to buy these nonsense microtransactions and we will never see a cod without them in the future

      • Bmeowmix

        There is nothing wrong with getting more money if it doesn’t hurt anybody

  • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

    Loving the new ways they are finding to put more customization into the game.

  • Choppabro2psn

    I’m addicted to ghosts but god I hate that game…

    • Jay Smith

      U wot m8

  • Ludo

    Awesome, getting it the second it comes out.

  • Captain_Planet

    Why not just give us a werewolf? That support streak where the dude follows you around the map with his riot shield, yeah, that guy. He should transform into a werewolf. Because. Because, that’s just as stupid as camo for a killstreak. Not to mention, one of the most annoying.. Okay, I’ll stop. Seriously though, WTF.

  • Tyrant Era

    Will it be free to season pass holders? or is IW going to make us buy these things just like BO2 did.

  • samuel

    So this is out for Xbox 360 but not X1? I can’t find the X1 code on gamestop.

  • Emre

    only deluded fools will buy this.

  • Jordin

    if you have the season pass can you get the wolf camo without paying

  • Mike

    Dude they charge money for this? You know how long it takes them to make something like that? Wow! I can’t believe people suck the dicks of the creators of this game and buy this shit. You guys are just being naive and making it harder for everyone in the future when they take advantage of us. You’re the idiots they’re talking about going “yes, stupid people and kids will buy it”. It took one geek all but 20 minutes to make this “wolf skin” and they’re gonna make hundreds of thousands from it.

    Thanks! To all the people buying a $60 game that isn’t complete but being ok with it then buying the rest of the pieces of the game later for more money. You’re fucking us all over.

  • Mike

    Also, don’t preorder anymore. You’re paying for something that they could just not release and then you’re out of money cause the GameStop nerd made you feel poor with the way he asked you to preorder it. Yea, it’s just $5 or $50 for the map pack but who knows if they’re even making a map pack? What if someone in their company makes a huge mistake and the company goes under(unlikely for cod companies)??? You never know so don’t do it. It’s me like me, some random guy with a cookie company saying hey I haven’t made all of these cookies but I will if you preorder them. Fuck that. You want your cookies now and who knows what the cookies will even turn out like?

    Buying dlc is just screwing us over in the long run and no can figure this out on their own?!?!!! We are doomed lol you dlc consumers are dumb as fuck
