UPDATED August 23: Next round of PUBG skins featuring your favorite streamers

Updated August 23: The next batch of skins is available now. Get new skins today for:

Edberg • FeralWife • makataO • spajKK • Swagger

Thank you to all the fans who have supported their favorite streamers so far. Today we also have an update regarding the PUBG Contraband extension. Streamer-themed PUBG skins can no longer be purchased through the extension — instead, purchases will be made through the PUBG in-game store.

You’ll still be able to browse items in the extension, but once it’s time to check out, head over to the PUBG store to get your loot!

Get skins from hundreds of your favorite PUBG streamers. A portion of the revenue of every skin you purchase goes directly to supporting the streamer for whom it was created.

PUBG and Twitch Streamers go together like winners and chicken dinners. And now we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing them together in an awesome new way with PUBG in-game Twitch streamer skins.

Twitch is partnering with PUBG to create limited edition in-game items featuring your favorite streamers. It’s another way to score new skins while flashing your support for the streamers you love by purchasing them.

More skins will gradually become available over the next few months, so be on the lookout: one of your favorite streamers may be next.

How to Purchase (Update: Apr 22)

You can purchase these skins and more through the PUBG in-game store.

Prior to April, you were able to purchase streamer-themed skins directly within the PUBG Contraband extension on Twitch. Now, all purchases must be made through the PUBG in-game store. So if you’ve bought items before and thought things seemed different now, that’s because they are.

Please note: in-game items will only be claimable on PC.

How to Claim

To claim your exclusive skins, ON PC ONLY, link PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS to your Twitch account:

  1. Start up PUBG and sign in

  2. In the upper right corner of the lobby screen, click on the Twitch “Glitch” icon

  3. Follow the instructions to link your Twitch account with your PUBG account

  4. Navigate back to Store -> Inventory from the main menu to find your loot

Note: If you linked your Twitch account with your PUBG account prior to 10/10/2018 you will need to re-link your accounts through PUBG’s updated Global Account system to continue to receive loot. Follow the in-game prompts to complete account re-linking.


Q: Who can install the extension?

A: Any revenue-earning Partner or Affiliate can install the extension and sell these streamer in-game items. Items sold on your channel will generate revenue for you.

Q: Can I claim the items on my XBOX account?

A: No, skins can only be claimed on the PC version of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.

Q: How long will the skins be available for sale?

A: Each skin is available for a limited time and the availability varies between skins. Make sure to check to find details on how long a specific skin will be available for.

Q: In which countries will these crates be available?

A: The crates containing weapon skins will be available for purchase for users in all countries.

Q: Can I purchase more than one of each skin or crate?

A: Nope. Each account is limited to one purchase of each item.

Q: Will there be more partnerships like this with more streamers in the future?

A: We’re working with PUBG to create more interesting ways for fans to get exclusive in-game items and support streamers. So stay tuned for more to come!
