The Samoyed Skin in the upcoming Floof Fury pack for Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Vanguard is the Call of Duty skin for which Activision Blizzard has once again been accused of plagiarism. Activision Blizzard faced legal action last year for replicating the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare season one character Mara. Sail Lin, the artist, used ArtStation to demonstrate the similarities between their own creations and the Samoyed from Call of Duty: Warzone, presenting their discoveries on Twitter in a viral thread published on July 29, 2022. Although it is unknown whether or not the 'plagarism' is coincidental, according to Polygon, Raven Software has taken down any references to the Samoyed skin and the photos from its blog post since the claim first surfaced. Neither Activision Blizzard and Raven Software have yet issued an official statement regarding the alleged plagiarism, thus it is unknown whether this means the skin's deployment will be suspended or not.
