“How to buy guns in PUBG” is a persistent question that is being asked by the majority of the gamers who just started playing this battle royale style game. In a way, this question sounds misleading – as the very essence of this game is to land without any weapons in hand. However, you can buy a gun skin in PUBG.
What is a gun skin?
Pro-Players like having an aesthetic appearance to their guns. As a matter of fact, the majority of such pro-players are identified in the game for their unique gun skins. Although the skins won’t increase or decrease your gun skills, they will increase your stealth. For instance, if you have the glacier skin for your M416 then you will be less prone to getting spotted in Vikendi. To sum up, skins will only help you blend in with the surrounding area – provided you have the matching camo.

How to buy gun skins
Method 1: Get them for free
This method will take a lot of time. To give you an idea as to how long it would take, I am on Level 50 and I only have 5 skins(and none of them is “ultra-rare”, per se). But here is what I did for getting those skins:
1. Complete your achievements
Duly completing your achievements will fetch you reward points. These reward points include gun skins. For instance, upon completing the “Assault Mastery IV” achievement(killing 500 opponents), you will get the Desert Camo skin for M416. In addition to that, there are achievements that will give you crate coupons, using which you can open crates(paid ones, for free) to get rare pieces as rewards.
2. Royale Pass
Royale Pass in PUBG is similar to Battle Pass in Fortnite. It is a seasonal event wherein you can earn rewards if you complete missions. These missions can be “daily” or “challenge”. While daily missions are easy to complete, the rewards are not lucrative enough. If you want to earn a gun skin, you should complete challenge missions.
3. Tier reward
In PUBG, there are a total of 8 tiers that include Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Crown, Ace, and Conqueror. If you move into a new tier, the game will give you rewards. For gun skin, you will need to reach Diamond V and complete at least 5 matches in this tier.
Method 2: Buying them by spending UC
If you are willing to spend your UC in exchange for gun skins, then the ideal solution is to purchase the Elite Royale Pass. An Elite Royale Pass will cost 1800 UC, around USD 35. It is totally worth it, as the rewards are much better than the free royale pass. Not just gun skins, you can unlock a wide variety of cosmetic skins using an Elite Royale Pass’ rewards.
This concludes our guide as to how to buy guns in PUBG, if adding a gun skin to your gun qualifies as a new gun. Once again, you can not buy guns in PUBG because they are spawned randomly. But, you surely can buy gun skins!
