The ability to steal skins can be triggered by performing the Identity Theft finishing move in MW3 and Warzone. This finishing move is part of the Blackcell Operator Bundle for Season 4. You get access to this move by equipping the Dupe or Copy Blackcell operator skins that are part of the Blackcell Operator Bundle.

To do a finishing move, you'll have to sneak up on your opponent from behind and hold down the designated melee button to initiate the finishing move. At the end of the finishing move, you'll steal the opponent's operator skin (provided you're equipped with the Dupe or Copy skin). You can also steal a new operator's skin while wearing one, but you'll have to perform the finishing move again. Note the theft is not permanent as the stolen skin will only stay equipped on you for the duration of the match.

Is the MW3 Season 4 Blackcell Operator Bundle worth it?

The Season 4 Blackcell Operator Bundle costs $29.99 and includes both the Dupe and Copy operator and the Identity Theft finishing move. You'll also get a Season 4 Battle Pass skip with 100+ unlockable rewards, 25 tier skips and 1400 COD points. It can be pretty expensive, but you get pretty impressive benefits and those cool operator skins.
