Call of Duty: Warzone’s recently leaked skin has proved controversial since an artist has claimed that the game’s producers plagiarised her work. Since its release in 2020, Call of Duty: Warzone has become a colossal success.

By pulling in players who were stranded at home during the early stages of the epidemic, it enjoyed tremendous high sales as a free-to-play game. It offered everyone a fun game to play and offered a tonne of in-game things for them to purchase, guaranteeing it would be a complete cash cow.

Call of Duty: Warzone has received ongoing skin support since its release, featuring crossover packages like the impending Terminator ones.

Analysis and discussion of the similarities between the skin pack and other sites’ work were uploaded by artist Sail Lin. Both show a bipedal Samoyed dog dressed in military garb, including a belt pouch, a back-slung open-frame weapon stock, and an incredibly identical shemagh scarf.

In addition, similar colour schemes, a similarly cut coat, and baggy slacks are used in both the artwork and the model.

The forthcoming CoD Vanguard Samoyed skin was copied from me, the actual artist, according to Sail Lin via Twitter. “Even though I enjoy CoD, I am really upset to see my work being plagiarised by a huge corporation like Activision in this way,” she added.

As part of a collection of military dogs titled The Dog Army, artist Sail Lin initially shared their canine soldier on artstation in December 2019 under the name “Samoyed Medical.” Additionally, there are images of a bulldog riot policeman and a Doberman pinscher marksdog.

The Loyal Samoyed suit is one of the Floof Fury pack’s skins for Kim Tae Young, a Call of Duty operator. Although they seem strange for a military shooter, they aren’t much stranger than more latest contributions like The Terminator and Die Hard skins.
