The popular Battle Royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has announced that players will soon be able to own the new in-game weapon skins that are themed after popular Twitch streamers Guy ‘Dr DisRespect’ Beahm and Michael ‘Grzesiek’ Shroud.

In a promotional event from June 4th – 30th, players will be able to purchase special crates containing the personalized weapon skins for $9.99 a crate.

PUBG initially decided to award the two streamers their own skins after Dr DisRespect, who is a prominent streamer of the game on Twitch, publicly demanded it from the game’s developers.

The skin designs were later confirmed by the Doc and popular PUBG skin database SkinTracker, and can all be viewed here.

PUBG will be releasing the weapon skins into the game via two purchasable crates: Shroud’s Ghosted Crate and the Doc’s Speed and Momentum Crate.

Both crates will include two special skins each, and both crates can be purchased either on Twitch or directly from Steam.

According to the official announcement post, the skins will not be marketable on the Steam community market, where various in-game items can usually be bought and sold by players.

Furthermore, each PUBG/Steam account will only be able to purchase one set of each crate, but players will have the option to purchase both crates if they choose to do so.

The full details of the announcement can be viewed below, or on the official Steam Community website.

We worked closely with Dr. DisRespect and Shroud to design these weapon skins. 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.

The Indian government has banned PUBG Mobile, one of the most popular mobile games in the country, along with over 100 more apps with links to Chinese publishers.

PUBG Mobile has a touchy history in India specifically. Countless news reports of teens becoming incredibly addicted to the game have filled Indian media for over two year. The game has been blamed for bad exam results, and in some extreme stories, death.

The controversy around PUBG Mobile in India has prompted calls for the government to ban it in the past, by a student association worried about its effect on education.

On September 2, India’s Interior Ministry banned the game, along with 118 other apps, citing concerns around cybersecurity, as tensions with China rise.

PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular games on iOS and Android in India.

They said the apps were “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order.”

The move follows India’s previous bans of other Chinese social media apps, including TikTok.

In a statement, the Indian government said: “The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of our citizens.”

Other banned apps, via TechCrunch, include Baidu, WeChat Work, Tencent Weiyun, Rise of Kingdoms, APUS Launcher, Tencent Weiyun, VPN for TikTok, Mobile Taobao, Youko, Sina News and CamCard.

PUBG Mobile is notable though, because of how wildly popular it was in the country. In March 2019, police actually arrested ten students who were playing the game because the game had been banned in that specific region.

“Our team caught these youths red-handed. They were taken into custody after they were found playing the PUBG game,” said Police inspector Rohit Raval at the time.
