Black Ops Cold War players have noticed something bizarre about on the cosmetics in the game that seems to have gone through some quiet changes.
As Activision Blizzard still find themselves in the midst of their sexual discrimination lawsuit, players have discovered something questionable in Black Ops Cold War.
Any Call of Duty player will be familiar with calling card cosmetics which reflect their energy in lobbies, however now it looks as though the games devs have made some changes to allowing a calling card to represent them.
Recently, a post surfaced on Reddit which was swiftly removed by moderators after it became increasingly popular with users.
The post read “Wasn’t S5 Released When California Sued Act?”
Following this, the card which depicted two males checking out a woman’s behind was quietly changed in the game.
The post was soon flooded with comments from other users, one said “I think this is a good reperesentation of how seriously they’re taking it.”
Another user said “This might be one of the devs spreading awareness of the problem. After all, i think treyarch designs these things not activision.”
A third said “Right before the season came out that contains this challenge, Activision was sued by California for sexual misconduct at their offices.”
Could this have been changed as a result of the ongoing lawsuit? The “Scope It Out” cosmetic shows two male characters at the water coolers seemingly staring at a female characters behind.
Reddit user ‘Jawkess’ then took to the platform to share the new image that still features the two male characters, however the female character has since been edited out.
The post read “For those that didn’t realize, the “Scope It Out” calling card has been quietly changed”.
This has raised a few questions within the community regarding the ongoing lawsuit and also the coincidental timing of the post and its removal from the game.
