For the first time ever, two content creators will receive custom-designed weapon skins in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek and Guy “DrDisRespect” Beahm are two of PUBG’s most famous streamers, and now they and their fans can sport their weapon skins in-game starting on June 4.
Purchasing Shroud’s “Ghosted” crate for $9.99 will get you weapon skins for the AKM and Kar98k. The skins sport a sleek black, blue, and grey theme, with Shroud’s awesome logo emblazoned as well.
Meanwhile, DrDisRespect’s “Speed & Momentum” crate will also be available for $9.99. This crate has a skin for the M416 and Kar98k, both inspired by DrDisRespect’s black and red color scheme, with his sunglasses and mustache smiley face logo.
“We worked closely with Dr. DisRespect and Shroud to design these weapon skins,” said PUBG Corp. “It’s a true partnership between them and PUBG Corp, and we’re thrilled that these creators will get a share of the profits every time a fan buys one of these new crates. Content creators from around the world have been fundamental to the success of PUBG. We want to celebrate that, and this is just one of many ways we’ll be doing it going forward.”
PUBG rose to huge success last year thanks in large part to the exposure it got on Twitch from streamers like Shroud and DrDisRespect, among many others. Twitch and YouTube are now a massive part of gaming advertising, and there’s no better way to advertise a game than to watch a big personality enjoy it online.
The two crates will only be available from June 4 to June 30, then they will be gone forever. PUBG Corp. said that it has no plans to make the skins eligible for the Steam marketplace.
