Three sets in the Top Ten this week, each represented by the shirt or hoodie of the set. We name the Diablo Dark Ops Set skin(s) of the week. Enjoy!

xtab's Weekly In-Game Skin Review

Looking at skins in the Rust store, we're struck again by how much more vibrant and appealing they are in the workshop and in the game itself.  We're sure Facepunch will one day address the disparity, but until that day you can count on this blog to give the skins a proper showing. 

All the skins approved this week are fantastic, especially the Metalhunter series by TONYAER.  But our favorite is the Furious Raider Riot Helmet, by Vitalik.

Lots of color this week, presented in styles that live up to the spirit of the game. Our favorite:  Furious Raider, by Vitalik.

Three full sets this week--we include one piece from each of them, but of course it's the whole set together that really makes it worthwhile.  Be sure and drop by the artists' workshops to see shots of the full set as it would appear in the game.  Our favorite skin this week is the Sleeper Catcher bedroll, by Badtrip.

Fifteen approvals approvals this week, with StabbyMcStabFace taking home the lion's share.  Best skin of the week: POP Crossbow, by SerQ.

Looks like this is Hatchet Week on the workshop. Tons of hatchets, most of them very high quality. Hatchets are so popular, and the competition so fierce, aspiring artists should consider different categories for their efforts to maximize their chances of approval.

We hereby dub the POP Crossbow skin of the week for creativity and quality on a skin category other than hatchet.
