You’ve got a whole month to get it, so no griping.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is celebrating its one year anniversary with a free, limited edition weapon skin, available to download now.
The title was launched on Steam Early Access on March 23 last year, and to thank players old and new, the Year One – SCAR L skin is being given away to those who log in until May 1.
You can take a closer look at the skin in 3D on the PUBG YouTube channel. The picture below is taken from the official announcement.
Weapon skins are a new addition to the game, and were detailed in the 2018 road map.
They were introduced this week with the new weapon skin system, and players can get their hands on them through the paid weekly random Triumph Crate, or the free, non-random Raider Crate.
The drop rates for both crates are detailed in the announcement. It’s worth keeping an eye out while scavenging in a match, as picking up a weapon with a skin applied lets you keep the skin.
The game has recently introduced its first limited-time event mode, and we also got a look at the new map at GDC.
