Donnie Darko Skin in Warzone Inadvertently Punishes Showboating Players

A player wearing the Donnie Darko operator skin in Call of Duty: Warzone was mistakenly penalised for being rude to their opponent.

When a Call of Duty: Warzone player was punished for showboating while using the CoD Donnie Darko skin, they received more than they bargained for. Donnie Darko, a cult classic science fiction psychological thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal, was released in 2001 and starred Jake Gyllenhaal as the titular character who befriends Frank, a horrific creature dressed in a rabbit suit.

Activision has initiated efforts to merge Call of Duty: Vanguard with its free-to-play battle royale shooter Call of Duty: Warzone, following the game’s recent release. The two games are slated to be integrated next month on December 2, which will also be the start of Vanguard’s Season One. Players can expect a slew of new features as part of the launch, including the introduction of RICOCHET, a kernel-level anti-cheat programme designed to precisely target hackers, who have been a persistent cause of issues in the battle royale.

DevvyREDDIT, a Reddit member, posted a video of their recent Warzone encounter, in which they were promptly penalised for attempting to execute a downed player. The Redditor dressed as Frank the Rabbit from Donnie Darko on Rebirth Island and engaged in a close-range gunfight with an opponent player. DevvyREDDIT gained the upper hand by knocking out their opponent before attempting to conclude the fight with an execution. Unfortunately for the Redditor, their showboating behaviour was swiftly punished, as Frank the Rabbit’s execution animation walked their operator off the edge of the platform and into the dangerous waters below, instantly murdering them.

As part of Warzone‘s Halloween The Haunting Event, the Donnie Darko operator skin package was available for a short time, along with The Ghost Face skin from the film SCREAM. The bundle includes a special closing technique that pays homage to the film, and in the case of Frank the Rabbit, the operator will step out of the way before a jet engine slams into their opponent. The majority of Redditors were unimpressed by Devvy’s watery demise, with many claiming that their punishment was only for acting badly in their effort to execute a downed player. Others suggested that the Redditor’s death may have been avoided easily if they had double-checked their position before performing their finishing move.

Frank, the Rabbit, certainly gave DevvyREDDIT a speedy penalty for what many gamers would consider questionable behaviour, even if it wasn’t his intention. With the imminent release of Warzone’s Pacific Caldera map, which will also bring updates to Rebirth Island, there will be even more unusual ways to perish.

Call of Duty: Warzone is currently available for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
