Dataminers unearth Neymar and Pogba skins from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

We're only hours away from the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Dataminers remain hard at work trying to uncover hidden information in the game's files. For example, they've found evidence supporting earlier claims that superstar footballers are coming to the shooter.

The footballer operator skins are a good start, and we're hoping that future ones don't break the immersion as well.

According to cybersleuths who dug into the early access build of Modern Warfare 2, they've found operator skins based on Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba, and Paris Saint-Germain's star player, Neymar Jr.

The best part about the unannounced cosmetics is they are in line with Modern Warfare 2's aesthetics.


When the leak about the footballer's arrival in Modern Warfare 2 first blew up, many worried they'd arrive garbed in sporting outfits. Instead, both Pogba and Neymar will drop in with complete military gear including headsets, appropriate equipment, and even fitting eyewear. It's safe to say that their arrival in-game won't break the immersive Infinity Ward is working so hard to create.

Having said that, we should find more evidence of footballers coming to Modern Warfare 2 once the game's full build is out.

Keep in mind that the earlier leak lists eight more names as playable operator skins for the next Modern Warfare game, including Neymar's PSG teammate and football GOAT, Lionel Messi.

We'll likely find out more about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's upcoming collaborations close to the launch of Warzone 2.0.

Until then, you can check out our coverage of the upcoming changes to Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer at launch. As for collabs, you can have the Burger Town operator skin if the Burger King or Hungry Jack's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 meal is available in your area. Finally, PlayStation owners will get an exclusive skin for Modern Warfare 2.
