As with other FPS titles, BGMI also features a wide variety of weapons. Players can upgrade their firearms with skins to make things more interesting, turning them from ordinary to flashy. In this post, learn what weapon skin upgrade is all about and how you can add features to your chosen gun.

Materials are another requirement to upgrade your weapon skin in BGMI. There are several ways with which you can obtain Materials in the game. By doing Spins in the event section, players can get a chance to gather Materials (E.g., participating in the Lucky Spin).

Materials can also be obtained from dismantling duplicated upgradeable firearms. For example, if a player already owns a specific weapon skin and gets it again, there is an option to dismantle it and convert it to Materials.
