Weapon Skins Are Nullifying Weapon Forge Stats

Until this gets fixed there is literally no point in buying gun skins as it is only penalizing you for spending. Way to shoot yourselves in the foot MercurySteam

Hello bronzegriff09,

Would you please provide us some data (username, platform, which weapon are you using, etc) in order to investigate this issue?

Thank you very much in advance.

Absolutely, so me and some friends tested this individually to make sure. To current knowledge this bug is affecting harec, alicia, doldren, and hive on all weapons. Platform PS4. What im assuming is causing this problem is that the game is registering the skins as separate weapons and because of that its giving it forge rank 0 while equipped.

Hey there! I’d like to add that I’ve purchased Hans’ weapon skin and I’ve noticed I don’t get my bounty hunter bonus when using it. Hope to see this fixed soon so I can show off that spicy pepper in game 🌶
