Activision accused of ripping off Dr Disrespect’s game for a $20 Call of Duty skin

Just a few weeks after admitting the ‘misstep’ of plagiarizing the Floof Fury skin for Call of Duty: Warzone (opens in a new tab)Activision is facing accusations of doing it again, this time with a skin that looks remarkably similar to a “Variant” in Midnight Society’s upcoming extraction shooter Deaddrop.

Variants in the world of Deaddrop are the players who bought the first round of early access passes for the game. Among the bonuses given to them for being first in line are “VisorCortex IDs”, which are basically NFTs that grant unique visor skins to those who own them. Think Daft Punk, but more overtly martial arts.

“VisorCortex serves as your identity in Midnight Society and can be used as your verified avatar in and out of society,” the studio explained (opens in a new tab) in March, before Midnight Society’s game had a proper title. “Variants can sell the Access Pass along with their attached VisorCortex ID to give up their utility in the Midnight Society or exchange VisorCortex IDs with other Access Pass holders without losing variant benefits.”
