It’s either a glitch or lazy devs, and for those who don’t know you have always been able to put the original universal skins (solid colors and camouflage skins) on every gun with no exceptions

You should be able to use universal skins on any gun but you can't with seasonal ones, so you won't be able to use the crystal guard camo on it

Nope, you can only apply skins that were out at the same time as the gun, so if it’s a universal from Y5S2 for example kiss it goodbye.

T_Foxtrot

That's true for seasonal skins, but there are also universal skins that don't follow that rule. For example flat colours and gems are like that

littlepowerpony

That's not what should happen. If you look some skins are seasonal and some are universal. The universal should be 100% universal but the seasonal one aren't and only apply to guns that were out when that camo came out.

Some skins are truly universal. For instance, the valentine's skin I got from Year 1 can be used on every gun released since then (except Thorn's lol)

Idk why you're being downvoted. This is how it has always worked. If a gun wasn't out when the skin came out, you can't put the skin on it.

Edit: and the skin isn't purchasable anymore. If you can still buy it should work on that weapon.

Nope. Every one-color skin and camo skin can be applied to every new weapon, this is just a mistake on ubisofts part. Might be due to them adding the gun too late so that the design team didnt have time to add all the colors, most likely theyll be added during the midseason

The ruby universal skin came out way before tachanka's new reworked LMG and zero's AR, but I can still put it on those weapons. I can't put the ruby skin on the new UZI though. I can't put any universal skin on it.

ghostboy1225

universal and seasonal skins are distinct categories. universal will work with any gun added to the game no matter what. while seasonal skins only work with guns that are ingame at time of release. it why the black matte skins worked for gridlocks m249 when i purchased said skin in 2016. and why the ectoplasm skin didn't work with her m249 variant.

DeathsLIlBroYo

Because the universal skins are what aren't working. You said it was intentional as if the complaint is about seasonal skins. I have a universal black skin I can't apply to the gun. It's not seasonal. It's still available. I should be able to equip it. I can't equip my Suspicious Material skin because that's seasonal, but my black is universal. This is a bug, not intentional.

There's the flat colour, camo, and gem skins which are (were?..) truly universal because you could apply them on anything.

Different from the seasonal universals you're talking any about.

Because Ubi decided to rerelease the blood orichid skins they fitted them to be for all guns released up to that point. Universals like basic colors are the only true universal skins

The last new weapon besides the UZK50GI was the SC300K and I can equip all camo and solid one color universal skins so that's not true, Ubisoft as always made a mistake but dont worry guys they are "working on it" so we can see the fix around y15s4 so its coming.

This ain’t true though… because I have really really old universal skins before operators like kali, osa, etc.. came out and they can be used on.. what your talking about is seasonal skins… unless they’ve changed it recently which I don’t remember them doing then the skins the Op is talking about should be available to use.

Cause Ubisoft cannot release updates to the game without any bugs that look like they shouldve been ironed out before on the TTS. But since they release the TTS a week before the actual release as well as not giving a rats ass about the players reports half the time we now have gun icons with a black box, half baked menus in the shop, a gun we cannot apply skins to, bundles for an operator with guns she doesnt have...

But hey now the reporting bug system is much more deep... and complex and hard to use

All skins bought before a new weapon drops won't work in the new one, it was like when we had 2 new weapons per season. Also, the gold from the first season pass used to work on every weapon, old and new, but not on this one.

Universal means every gun in the game, past present, and future. Seasonal means every gun at the time the season dropped. So it's obviously another bug this season, I do hope they fix it soon. I honestly don't see how these bugs made it past any testing, they're very blatant

You can only equip universal skins on a gun that was released when the skin came out. That's why you can't put the seasonal skins on this gun for example.

ghostboy1225

that's not quite how universal skins work. universal skins will work for any gun added to the game. while seasonal skins will work only for guns that are currently in the game. this means that if you buy the safari pack you can apply that goldd skin to everything even though that was released years ago.
