Warzone Season 4: Border War Skin Renamed

Suggesting a potential threat towards immigrants, the skin's appearance and description clash with the game's "Black Lives Matter" statement that strives for racial equality.

The skin is now called "Home on the Range", with the description now reading “Play along with the deer and the antelope with the Home on the Range D-Day Operator skin.”

We're surprised the original title and description were signed off, but this isn't the first time that Call of Duty's inherent jingoism has come to the fore. Modern Warfare's campaign reframes the "Highway of Death" event as a Russian war crime, despite the United States being the inciting party.
