If you like the look of an enemy's skin who continues to act as target practice, you can now physically steal it for a short amount of time in Modern Warfare 3.

MW3 has become quite a fashion show as of late, with most crossovers in recent Call of Duty memory having Operator skins that are at an all-time high on the wacky scale. But they do come with an equally high fee.

As of MW3 Season 4, you can now steal skins for 'free', if you can get behind enemy lines for long enough.

The cost to get your average skin is now extraordinarily high, with MW3 breaking the record for the most expensive bundle yet while also locking other outfits behind multiple paywalls.

But Season 4 will give you a chance to wear any outfit in the game, without having to have unlocked it or bought it, with a brand new finisher.

Season 4 will introduce a new finishing move, "Identity Theft", which allows you to physically warp into the character you assassinate.

"Note the 'Identity Theft' finishing move, which is only equippable to Dupe or Copy Operators, eliminates an enemy as you’d expect, but also copies and equips your opponent’s skin. This effect stays active until your next death!" reads the Call of Duty blog.

Of course, this isn't quite "free"...

Yep, you guessed it. The hitch is that the finishing move is held behind the BlackCell Battle Pass, which costs $30. The Identity Theft move won't be in the regular pass and will only be in the premium subscription.
