It's time for this week's xtab Rust skin pix, in which we bring you the best skins submitted to the workshop--the stuff we'd like to see in Rust. Skin submissions continue to increase week over week, there are a lot if skins and we...look...at...each...one. Keep 'em coming!
Here's the top ten, and a bonus number eleven because while we think that skin would be hilarious to see in the game, we can't exactly recommend it. You'll understand when you see it.
@Facepunch: As a final note, we think it would be awesome to be able to wear clothing over armor, which gives you the aesthetics and identification offered by skins without sacrificing protection. We want to wear more awesome stuff at the same time!
This metal chest plate comes with the familiar markings and pattern of the Mystic series, by Madroce. The artist deliberately makes the armor appear amateurish and Rusty, yet attractive at the same time. Nice trick, that. If you haven't seen the rest of his excellent work, be sure and drop by his workshop.
Another excellent and attractive skin by Madroce. The whole alien idea goes against the game's background, but the alien motif is subtle, and maybe it is not so out of touch, after all? Where do the black helicopters come from? Who really runs this nasty little island, anyway?
The perfect skin for people specializing in violent, no-knock entries. The artist, Vitalik, is a prolific contributor to the workshop with several approvals under his belt. Be sure and visit his workshop often--we do.
@Vitalik: It's the "arm" of the law in English, not the...limb.
This skin was so...something that we had to recommend it. We don't know if we want to wear it, but you gotta like it. You may want to buy it just so it's the last thing your screaming, downed enemies see just before you deliver the coup d'grace.
It would appear that getting paid for skins has drawn some quality artists to Rust. Who wudda thunk it? The flame steel revolver is certainly quality, but that's no surprise since it comes from Mishka, who has three approvals to his name...out of a total of only 18 submissions. His secret? He simply does not release crap. Check out the leather straps wrapped around the handle of the pistol.
A simple, but solid offering by Milho Frito, longtime Rust skin artist. There's tons of good skins in his workshop, be sure and check it out.
A hoodie made from artificial fibers. Nicely aged with a couple of good touches, like the dog tags around the neck. The artist, StabbyMcStabface, says that he wanted to make something to go along with his already successful (and approved) Where Eagles Dare mask. We think they would make a fine combo.
A semi-auto pistol, painting in lurid flaming colors. We like how it still looks rusty and worn. MDemon, the artist, also has a similar revolver in his workshop.
@Mdemon: It's Hellfire, not "Fire to Hell". Hellfire.
Valentine's day is right around the corner, and we thought we could start promoting cute skins that you could give to your girlfriend to mark the holiday. When we saw the Bloody Smile, we knew we had a winner. Happy Valentine's Days!
La Crampe released his first skin on November 30th of last year, and has already met with a few approvals. We like how the rusty strips run vertically up the barricade, we like the bullet holes, and we like the ugly, military green paint. Hope this skin gets approved.
And now for number one, the cherry on top: The Flower Hat. We place this skin last because we can't really recommend it, but we sure would buy it. Put this hat on with nothing else, get your mace ready, and run down the beach on wipe day, murdering every Newman you see.
