Call of Duty's microtransaction game has almost silently skyrocketed this year, with the developers sneakily releasing the most expensive bundle ever (before issuing refunds), joining multiple bundles together for exclusive and pricey rewards, and now releasing a barbarically priced blueprint for the real high-rollers.

The latter of which is now causing outrage.

Warzone streamer Mason "Symfuhny" Lanier has now echoed the befuddled thoughts of the entire Call of Duty community as the basic $100 weapon blueprint definitely doesn't warrant the cash.

Before it even released, Call of Duty players lashed out at the 'scummy' camo locked behind $100 worth of purchases, knowing full well that this item is a step towards inflated bundle prices.

But after Symfuhny has uploaded his code for the camo, he and the Warzone community have now joined together to ridicule the design.

"This was one hundred bu- NO!" Symfuhny said, simply shocked at the design. 

"It's not even animated! Dude! This looks like s**t," he added.

What Symfuhny found most bizarre was the lack of animation or reactive elements, despite the email and advertising having a surging cheetah print design which eluded to the skin having some form of special appearance.

"Animated on the email but not in-game I'm in tears," one fan commented.

Another fan added, "This is shameless."

James "JGOD" Godoy also theorised that maybe this was a last-ditch effort to clean up the store which has become "low stock".

One thing is for certain though, the camo is not winning people over, and few people will be proud to use this as a bragging right.
