Skins aren’t really the reason anyone plays PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Skins, or rather, clothing you use to customize your character (which will quickly get covered up with armor, backpacks, and gear) are totally optional, but they’re also becoming increasingly important in the day-to-day ecosystem of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Thanks to a whole bunch of loot crates, there are lots of outfits you can unlock with real-life money. All clothing is purely cosmetic — it won’t help you earn those chicken dinners.
And a good thing it is cosmetic, because not all clothing options are created equal. Some very specific skins can only be unlocked with exclusive sign-ups or special limited-time only codes. To make sense out of this crazy world of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds cosmetics, we’re going to keep a running list of every new code and exclusive you can earn in-game. Some of these may require real-world money, while others can be unlocked with alternative methods. We’ll detail all the different ways you can get outfits in the list below.
