A Modern Warfare 2 promotional campaign that gives US players a double XP code in exchange for buying Jack Link’s Pork Strips has caused a bit of a stir after shoppers realized many had unknowingly purchased packs after the code theft.
As spotted by PC Gamer, rather than hiding the code inside the packaging, Jack Link’s Spicy Dill Pickle Pork Strips opted to have the code embedded in tiny pamphlets glued to the front. However, it looks like showerbags like this guy go around and steal them.
“In the field, reports from Walmart about double Jack Links jerky XP codes for Modern Warfare 2 have been stolen from every store I can find,” reported COD content creator Modern Warzone.
“If you want to buy Jack Links for 2X XP, make sure you buy a bag whose code hasn’t been stolen.”
“That was already a problem and it’s not my job to help Jack Links pull himself together. I’d rather people know for themselves what to look for when buying jerky for codes.”

If you happen to fall for the scam, all is not lost; players with proof of purchase had luck calling Jack Links customer service and getting codes that way.
Have you ever played Modern Warfare 2? “Without the over-the-top bombshell to give it all some levity – or to distract you, depending on how charitable you are – it feels, oddly, a little weak,” we said in Eurogamer’s Modern Warfare 2 review.
“The irony of it all is intense: it’s an extraordinarily beautiful game at times, and one that, in its relentlessly compelling multiplayer, lager and chips, aims to grab your attention for the next full year. But it’s also the one who is terrified that you are looking at him too closely.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 composer Sarah Schachner recently revealed that she will no longer be writing music for the game or participating in the release of its soundtrack, blaming an “increasingly difficult” with the project’s audio director.
Meanwhile, some players believe that using attachments in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could actually make weapons worse and developer Infinity Ward has admitted to the “confusion” over a store-exclusive reward in game for players who have chosen the Vault edition.
