CoD community goes crazy over Modern Warfare’s new “Tiger King” skin

As Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness’s popularity soared on Netflix following the series debut in April, a new skin in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has sparked a discussion among fans thinking it’s based off John Finlay.

John Finlay is Joe Exotic’s ex-husband and is recognizable for his buzzcut, and body tattoos which were shown off in interviews.

Now, Modern Warfare’s Season 3 Battle Pass has a new skin for the operator Yegor, and it looks eerily like John Finlay, tattoos and all.

The skin even has a gold chain around Yegor’s neck, just as Finlay wore on the program. That said, it doesn’t look like Yegor is missing any teeth, though a good clean headshot on the battlefield could certainly change that.

Call of Duty players and Tiger King fans were quick to make the connection. “I’m glad Call of Duty finally added a Tiger King update to Modern Warfare,” wrote MinisterMerch on Twitter.

“So I guess they added John Finlay from Tiger King in the new Call of Duty update,” MostCallMeCobb laughed with as series of joy emojis.

“Didn’t realize the makers of Call of Duty were such big Tiger King fans,” vivsok joked.

While the skin looks identical, it’s unlikely that the skin is supposed to be him, and it’s all just a mere coincidence.

Additionally, the real John Finlay doesn’t look like he did on the show anymore. In a newly premiered episode of The Tiger King Aftershow, it’s revealed that he underwent a massive dental transformation.

With new teeth and a smile to boot, he doesn’t look anything like his Yegor counterpart.

Still for fans of Tiger King and Call of Duty, you could always imagine like you’re playing as a character who once married Joe Exotic.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
