The limited Burger Town skin from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is currently being offered for exorbitant prices on the secondary market. The skin, revealed as a result of a partnership with Burger King, alludes to a well-known area from the 2009 game Modern Warfare 2.
There is a long history of cross-promotion between Call of Duty’s games and other well-known brands. It’s actually becoming challenging to keep track of all the promos since there have been so many for so many different games. The partnerships Call of Duty has with fast food chains, though, are one distinctive way the game promotes itself. When Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was first released, Activision and Carl’s Jr. collaborated to produce a burger meal that arrived in a care package box and granted gamers a ketchup-and-mustard weapon skin. Another peculiar crossover can be found in Modern Warfare 2’s bizarre Burger Town skin, which features a game operator donning a “Burger Town” t-shirt. This skin is associated with the actual Burger King restaurant chain.
The Gamer has recently observed the Burger Town skin selling for astronomically high rates online, despite the cross-promotion being made public earlier this week as seen on David The Agency’s YouTube channel. On eBay and other websites, codes can be purchased for up to $50 each. A double XP increase is obviously considerably less expensive, and a limited-time Whopper meal is the only way to get the skin. Even if the offer is taking place in 40 other countries, it is not in the US. Even though the skin is very simple to obtain in most regions, this has significantly increased demand, creating a seller’s market.

Cross-promotions between Call of Duty and food brands are nothing new, and Modern Warfare 2 isn’t even the first one to feature them. Jack Link and Activision have also partnered to offer in-game prizes with every jerky purchase, including a sasquatch operator skin. But such prizes are easily accessible in the United States, unlike the Burger Town skin.
