    I currently cannot figure out how to apply a skin I created to my own weapon. Is this not possible? Can I only attach skins I have purchased?

     

    EDIT: Solved ---- Delay in upload

    You can apply your own skins through the Armory Menu. Press on a weapon that you want to equip the skin on, you will see a little icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Press it and select your skin.

    I actually did as well as followed his instructions. Turns out that it takes a second for it to update to where you can apply your own skins after you have uploaded them. I was just impatient. :)

    let me rephrase... If I download the weapon and use 3d builder which is the format it comes in... how do I upload because it will not let me so I am wondering why you even have 3d builder as the default when you download the guns.

    Once you remove the skin that you previously published you can't use it anymore.

    You need to reupload it to use it again

    It didn't made much sense to have skin cases when everyone can upload their own skins for free.

    That being said cases might still return but instead of skins they will contain some rare items
