What are PUBG Weapon Skins?

Weapon skins are a new feature introduced in update #8 of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. They’re effectively a cosmetic override that allows players to customize the appearance of different guns. Once you have one, all you need to do is equip it via the customizations tab in the game lobby.

Your equipped weapon skins only affect weapons you pick up, and are only applied after you pick a gun up. Other players will be able to use a gun you applied a skin to if you either drop it for them or have it looted from your death crate.

How To Get PUBG Weapon Skins

All weapon skins are available either through pulling a Triumph Crate from the game’s random crate system, or buying a Raider Crate, which has its own separate purchase option on the crate menu.

You’ll have a 20% chance to pull a Triumph Crate if you decide to try your luck with the random crate system, but you should also bear in mind that they also need to be opened with a Weapon Cosmetic Key that you can buy through an in-game microtransaction.

Raider Crates will cost more at the beginning of the week - rolling a random crate costs 700 BP to begin with while Raider crates start at 1200 BP - but they have the added benefit of not needing an additional microtransaction to open.

If you don’t want to bother with microtransactions and can’t count on yourself to pony up 1200 BP, don’t fret! If you log in at any time until May 1st, you’ll receive a limited time Year One SCAR -L skin completely free.

The drop rates for rare skins are a little more forgiving for the locked Triumph Crates by comparison, but that’s to be expected.
