Black Ops 2 Brings Home the Bacon Personalization Pack

Black Ops 2 Brings Home the Bacon Personalization Pack

Brace yourself for the greatest Call of Duty weapons innovation of all time: bacon!

"Bacon to right of them, bacon to left of them, bacon behind them, greasy and crisp!"

Get ready to ride into the valley of tangy taste, folks, because today's rollout of microtransactions in the online shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops II is headlined by nothing less than bacon - the Bacon Personalization Pack! After all, nothing says "hot, screaming death" like cured meat fried up good and crispy, am I right?

For the low, low price of 160 Microsoft points, which works out to about two bucks in the real world, you can now wrap your favorite firearm in everyone's favorite breakfast meat. And what does putting bacon on your gun actually accomplish, you ask? It puts bacon on your gun! I can't believe I have to explain this. It's like chocolate and peanut butter, or Batman and Robin, or Keanu Reeves and John Malkovich. Bacon and guns!

Along with the weapon camo, Personalization Packs also include three targeting reticules and a custom calling card. Other optional add-ons launched today include the Extra Slots Pack, which offers ten "Create-a-Class" slots per game mode and expanded media storage, and Flag of the World Calling Card Packs. But who cares? Bacon on your guns, people! Bacon!

So let not the glory fade, of these tasty weapons made in grease, bubbling and fried; "Give us bacon," they cried!

BACON!

Not gonna lie that's pretty awesome...

Or...I could put that money towards getting myself real bacon. And then I could make a bacon explosion.

Glorious. Simply glorious.

I fully expect every single match to now be a massive Bacon war.

I think the Dev team was snacking on this when they made that pack:

Seriously, what the fuck. That is all.

Oh internet. Your obsession with bacon is silly.

It's all about sausage. Duh.

And yet this is still smarter and saner than any of EA's microtransactions.

Activision: We're like EA, but we don't do as much stupid stuff!

Now if shooting players with it turned them into bacon.

QUICK! SOMEONE CALL PETA!

This just seems like an opportunity that should not be missed.

Activition: Improving its image simply by not beeing EA.

This is unacceptable, the sanctity of bacon will be forever lost. Activision must be stopped!

Now all we need is a plug from Epic Meal Time to market this and its full circle

Or praised for making GUN-BACON. A gun, that you can eat!

Personally, I am more interested in the Zombie-Camo. ESPECIALLY for my Shield. Gonna LOVE to scare people with a freaking giant Gas Zombie in the center of my shield.

Its more like:

Activision: Greeder than EA without being as bad at it!

So nothing about the Lag Issues?....
...Though I will admit, this is a awesome idea.

Now if only the gun would fire bacon bullets, players would be lining up to be shot, i mean sure its a bullet but its made of Bacon!

you call that a bacon gun?

THIS is a Bacon gun, mate!

If all else fails, ore even if you are succeeding somewhat, be silly. It's kind of hard to argue against anyone that just decides "yes our new weapon skins shall be BACON".

It's not even the right kind of bacon!

This is real bacon!

Alternatively this kind of bacon would have sufficed:

I imagine actually bacon guns would cause problems

"Private! Where is your weapon?!"
"I ate it sir."
