Season 3 Reloaded of MW2 and Warzone 2 is bringing a huge amount of fresh content to the game, including the GS Magna and FTAC Siege secondary weapons. Despite this, it's the new store bundles that are getting most of the attention...but not for the right reasons.

MW2 fans have taken an issue with the upcoming WSOW Rat Pack bundle that transforms players into a giant rodent. For some, it's a step too far, and the 'stupid' Operator skins are turning the game into a 'joke'.

Taking to the ModernWarfareII subreddit, user Short_Ad3554 sparked a heated discussion after posting a picture of the new Rat Pack bundle to the community of Call of Duty fans.

In response, players voiced their disappointment over the direction cosmetics have taken and claimed they're not happy that the devs are encouraging the camping playstyle.

One user argued Activision 'clearly knows that Warzone at a competitive level just means camping and playing like a rat.' Another was left confused why the devs have 'a broken game and yet their focus is on rat bundles, come on.'

Others simply described the new "Cheesy" Operator skin as a 'joke' and just know 'some people are gonna buy this just to annoy everyone.'

When is the Rat Pack bundle released into MW2 & WZ2?

The Rat Pack bundle includes the "Cheesy" Operator skin, as well as two weapon blueprints in the "Cheesin" SMG and the "Spicy Meatballs" LMG. For now, it's unknown how much the bundle will cost. Just when you thought King Kong or Terminator were as ridiculous as the Warzone store could get.

This Rat Pack bundle will arrive in MW2 and Warzone 2 on May 10, with the Season 3 Reloaded update. We'll have to wait and see whether the rodent-themed cosmetic is a success in the store or whether it receives further backlash when it finally releases.
