Sixteen approvals this week, five of them completing sets started in previous weeks. Seeing some of you savages in matching clothes (or any clothing at all) would be nice for a change. Best skin of the week: Yellow Racer SAP, by Milho Frito.
Milho Frito has successfully added four skins to his Yellow Racer collection, which now includes this SAP, a riot helmet, pants, and a hoodie.
Up until now, the set made sense--grubby racer outfit from the past found and fixed up by present day scavengers. But this SAP changes all that. It ain't a starter pistol, so just what kind of race requires the drivers to pack heat?
Why, hard liquor and hand guns night down at the race track! Bring your gal, ladies in get in FREE!
@ Milho Frito: Go straight for the rocket launcher next!
After gathering dust on the backburner pile for a few weeks, the Beans Cannon got approved today. The launcher tube is made from the bean cans you find in the game, pretty much making the skin Rusty by default. Its a highly dubious and probably one time experiment in rocketry--imagine putting this thing on your shoulder, next to your ear and firing. By JohnnyOldBoy
This is the third and by far best hammer skin in the game. The default hammer is a simple wooden mallet with an absurdly large head that isn't good for anything but railroad spikes or watermelons, but that's not Krovv's fault. He's wrapped the handle with loving care in leather, carefully sanded the wood, and stamped a nice Mario style fix-it icon on the head. Looks good!
A ragged denim biker jacket from the distant past, now patched and upgraded with tire rubber and metal studs from the present. Ride free, brother!
A decaying concrete barricade by Devi, coming soon to a rats' nest junk base near you. The skin looks like it's been basking in the gentle radioactive glow of a nuclear accident for decades, soaking up the rads and passing time. Placed in the grass near your base, it will hopefully lend an aged and weathered air, something long since looted and not worthy of attention or explosives.
Fire engine red and ready to go, this 8 shooter revolver by Shedmon features an amateurish but enthusiastic paint job over all the metal parts. The paint is chipped and worn in places, as though the weapon sees a lot of use from someone who really enjoys firing it. We especially like the way the paint is applied to the gun cylinder and around the trigger.
A very tough, but tastefully decorated sheet metal security door, once used to protect the premises of a jeweler's or goldsmith's shop. It would take hours to hack through it with tools, but explosives will do the trick.
Grotesque skulls have been stamped into the metal of this grim assault rifle to celebrate a fine instrument of Fate. Or more accurately, Death.
The leather around the ammo clip and the grip looks good, but the wood of the stock seems a bit off to us. There is a nice, big skull at the back of the weapon which you'll see when you take aim--reminds what it's all about! By JohnnyOldBoy.
StabbyMcStabface's Nordic Beast roars this week with three new pieces added to the set: The Helmet, the Pants, and the Hoodie.
The Hoodie features Nordic trim amid a red and gray color scheme. The crosshatched stitching around the middle and along the sleeves is a good touch, and there's a very large Nordic rune printed on the back .We doubt that it means "peace."
Next up in Stabby's set we have the Pants, which is probably the best looking skin in the set. The pants feature wide Nordic trim at the cuffs and along the belt. There's a line of crosshatched red stitching running down the length of the legs that makes it easy to identify at a distance.
Taken together with the hoodie, you could almost look civilized. But put the armor and the mask on and you'll look a proper Beast once again.
Last up we have the Helmet, not the sort of thing a sane, pre-apocalyptic person would ever make. It's heavy corrugated steel with a face grill, leather head strap and metal cap. It's got your Nordic runes all over, of course, and is scratched up and dented here and there. A perfect crown for the set.
A rusty and battered riot helmet, of a kind used by checkpoint soldiers of the past for grim urban pacification duties in extremely violent places. This one's received a quick patch-up with bits of scrap and wire.
Grin, bang and lights out with with the Smile Grenade by Mishka. It's a simple green F1 pineapple with a smirking bloodthirsty face painted on it, a minimalist drawing that says a lot with just a few strokes. The artist has taken care to make sure the face is visible in your hand before you throw, so you'll actually get to see it in the game.
After languishing on the back burner for many weeks, Veys' Frostwolf finally makes it into the game. It's an assault rifle with a blue and white color scheme and a ferocious mad wolf painted on the side, the kind of thing Van Gogh might have done, if he ever decided to paint angry, violent imagery on weapons, that is.
Armed Police! This police jacket skin by Madroce came out in the middle of the week and gathered 7,500 views in just three days. It's a pretty good copy of the real deal, dirtied and scuffed up a bit for the world of Rust. About the only thing that puts the lie to it is the cute skull necklace visible over the inner shit. We don't think that's regulation.
