Call of Duty fans spend £30 on an in-game Burger King skin

All gherkined up.

Call of Duty fans are spending £30 on codes for an in-game Burger King skin.

The fast food chain is currently running a promotion where a Call of Duty meal can be bought, offering 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 sold listings ranging from around £20 to £40 and (amusingly) not always including postage. Some are even higher.

The promotion is available in 40 countries worldwide, though this does not include the U.S. or U.K.

The majority 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 (depending on where you live), the skin and xp are worth up to six burgers. Or, around half the price of the game.

Of course, 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 clearly enough fans in those countries eager for a burger shirt - as PCGamer reports, there are plenty 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 shared on Twitter. Here's a Call of Duty restaurant in Puerto Rico where a Burger King should be.

Modern Warfare 2 is out today, even if its campaign is "big, bold, and kind of boring".
