The Modern Warfare 3 era of Call of Duty has truly taken skins to the next level, bringing countless high-profile collaborations to the table.

Whether it's The Boys, mainstream celebrities, The Walking Dead, and now leaks suggesting Warhammer 40k cosmetics are on the way, it's an exciting time to play CoD if you enjoy collecting Operators.

Not all of these skins benefit you from a gameplay perspective though, with Diablo's Lilith having a massive hitbox.

Well, now there's a new "pay to lose" skin in multiplayer which may look incredible but can be seen from a mile away.

MW3's Sketched Out Operator declared "most pay-to-lose skin in the game"

Taking to the ModernWarfareIII subreddit, user Fuzzy_Ad2711 decided to point out how "bright" the Sketched Out Operator skin is in-game, making it "super easy to kill."

The cosmetic has quickly been labelled "pay to lose" and a lot of the community using it are convinced they're more of a "target" for enemies.

"It’s the most pay to lose skin in the game," said one user, with another arguing "The skin absolutely makes you a target though because not many people have it and those who you kill know exactly who to look for."

Not everyone thinks the disadvantage matters though, and are instead just keen to praise the incredible design.

If the Sketched Out Operator comes with a "death tax" due to its brightness, a lot of CoD fans are willing to pay the price.

The unique skin is absolutely adored by those who own it and the cell-shaded design makes it stand out from every other cosmetic in MW3.

"Love this skin, it's the only one I've ever bought from the store, I've been using it the last few weeks," said one user, with another arguing "I like silly skins like this and wouldn't mind seeing more of them, I'll pay the death tax happily."

Whether it's pay to lose or not, some CoD fans will accept a slight disadvantage as long as they can outplay foes in style.
