PUBG giving away free weapon skin to celebrate first anniversary

With the recent unveiling and launch of the first PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds weapon skins, the developer thought it'd be a good idea to give one away for free.

Earlier this morning, PUBG's weapon skins patch went live. The update introduced the weapon skin system, complete with a new dedicated menu to manage all of them.

These skins are found in two crates (Triumph, and Raider), both of which were added alongside the patch. To celebrate the launch, and as a token of gratitude for all of players' support during the game's first year, PUBG Corp. is offering all players a free SCAR-L skin.

This first anniversary, Year One skin can be yours if you log in from now until May 1. Much like the winner, winner chicken dinner t-shirt PUBG gave away at the end of Early Access, this skin can't be sold, traded, or deleted.

The skin looks pretty good, and features the signature 'winner winner chicken dinner' victory phrase on the stock. Here's a 360° look at it.

PUB Corp. said yesterday that it's considering implementing a form of region locking that would only allow players to connect to their closest servers, but not prevent cross-region parties.
