Is Call of Duty: Ghosts’ The Wolf Killstreak Skin the Worst DLC Ever?
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’s horse armor DLC has met its match. Infinity Ward has released a skin for the guard dog in Call of Duty: Ghosts that turns the simultaneously overpowered/useless killstreak into a wolf. And…that’s it. Really.
The cost to turn your war pup into something that looks straight out of ‘Game of Thrones’? $1.99. It’s not particularly expensive, but, like the aforementioned horse armor, the DLC does very little to add value to the game itself.
The official Call of Duty Twitter account announced the release of the wolf DLC on Dec. 11:

Maybe Infinity Ward and Activision will take all the money they make from this pointless piece of DLC toward fixing Call of Duty: Ghosts’ myriad problems, including a sniper rifle exploit that cancels the round-chamber animation, prone strafing and, despite the title’s gargantuan maps, a problematic respawn system. Well, gamers can dream.
Not to be a total grinch, the companies also released a free DLC pack that allows players to add a little holiday cheer to their polygonal weapons via Christmas-themed gun camo and reticule.
