Call of Duty Fans Spend £30 on an in-game Burger King Skin
Call of Duty fans is spending £30 on codes for an in-game Burger King skin.
The fast food giant is currently running a promotion where a Call of Duty meal can be bought, giving a free in-game Operator Skin (a t-shirt of the fictional Burger Town) and one hour of double XP for Modern Warfare 2.
Codes for these in-game extras are now being sold on eBay, with most traded listings ranging from around £20 to £40 and not always including postage. There are some even higher.
The Burger King promotion is available in 40 countries worldwide (across Europe, and more). Does not appear to be in the U.S. Check your local Burger King site to see if the site has a "Call of Duty" Meal listed.

The promotion is available in 40 countries, though this does not contain the U.S. or U.K.
The bulk of listings on eBay are from across Europe (Germany, Spain, Netherlands, France) and Australia, with others from the United States.
If a Burger King Whopper meal is around a fiver, the skin and XP are worth up to six burgers. Or, around half the price of the game.
Burger Town is a long-running easter egg in the series, so this Operator Skin is a fun extra. But a £30 fun extra?
It’s unclear too why the U.S. and U.K. weren’t included in the promotion, but there are enough fans in those countries keen for a burger shirt – as PCGamer reports, there are a bunch of skins available on eBay in America.
Some restaurants have even been wrapped up in Call of Duty branding, as Activision Blizzard chief marketing officer Fernando Machado communicated on Twitter.
Here’s a Call of Duty restaurant in Puerto Rico where a Burger King should be.
