When it comes to Call of Duty skins, sex definitely does sell. 

Although there aren't specific stats which reveal the most-sold bundles in Modern Warfare 2/3 and Warzone, you could bet your bottom dollar that the likes of Nicki Minaj, Lara Croft, The Boys' Starlight and Firecracker, Valeria's skin-tight looks, and the Targaryan-like queen Izzy would be at the top of the charts.

And now Warzone Mobile looks set to be deploying a new and exclusive skin for Izzy, which is thirsting players to download the app.

Following her very controversial addition to Warzone and MW2, Izzy has become one of the most-loved Operators in the game, with fans loving the skin-bearing purple kaleidoscopic outfit that eccentricates her figure.

She's now getting a new gothic look with her signature hips still on show, and the thirsty fans are getting quite excited again.

"This is a goth chick skin, I need it! I NEED IT," said one fan.

"Damn, Izzy simps are now gonna download MZW and gamble their life savings for that skin," a second fan said.

But the skin is set to be released exclusively to Warzone Mobile, forcing players into downloading the battle royale app rather than unlocking it and having her as a cross-platform Operator.

Knowing that the testosterone-charged Call of Duty community will eat this skin up, fans now think Activision is missing a trick by not making gothic Izzy cross-platform, as an abundance of players would try Warzone Mobile just to unlock her before heading back to the console game.

"I don't think Activision realizes that a bunch of people that normally don't play WZM would install it just to get this skin for MW3/Warzone," said one fan on a now-removed Reddit thread which focused on her new look.

"They’re missing such a huge opportunity to get non-mobile players on the mobile game. Release the content on all platforms. Lock some things behind mobile events and bam there’s your secret sauce for mobile engagement," added a second fan.

Whether this thirsting tactic works is yet to be seen, but it could be a telling point for Activision if the sex appeal of Izzy really does influence players to get on Warzone Mobile.
