Anyone using this thread to spam or trade codes will be infracted or possibly banned on the spot. This is your only warning.

UCB Disco 10-05-2011 02:36 PM

I downloaded the Season Pass, and I am not seeing the Liquid Metal weapon skins. They're not even in the possible list to purchase. Has anyone else experienced this??

Other than that, everything else worked; my Gears 1 and 2 achievements, beta stuff, etc. But I was pretty excited after my friend told me about the free Liquid Metal ones that come with the Season Pass until I realized I didn't even have them.

Any help or advice would be great.

Primeval Panda 10-05-2011 02:45 PM

The Liquid Metal ones are not ones that are "colored" such as the green, or team ones. It is already in your available skins list though so look toward the bottom in the Multiplayer options menu.

collin232 10-05-2011 09:45 PM

Tweaked the OP a little bit seeing as the thread was reset because of people trying to trade skins.

KcazIsKewl 10-06-2011 04:01 AM

Im soooooooooo confused how would you trade skins

Visit your local Jack in a Box, buy a combo or large drink and get a chance to get the xbox green skin.


:( this looks really cool but I won't be able to get it because if I send a letter it would never arrive.

Also the Skin at the very top, is it in game and which one is it?

The title one? It's a bunch of skins merged together. I would kill to have it ingame though.

Edit: its gold omen, deadly cute, tiger stripe, and team metal

After January 1st when exclusive deal runs out.

They're trying but most likely nothing will come from it.

Corpse87 10-06-2011 03:52 PM

Oh darn! Lol ;)

On another not. It's nice seeing all the skins. Some of them look really nice!

French_Kid 10-06-2011 05:07 PM

I have 2 questions:

1) Does anyone know if EPIC is looking into correcting the DOMINATION achievement skin unlock? I have the achievement, unfortunately earned offline so it's not unlocking for me. Or is that pretty much a TFB situation?

2) The 2 skins that come with the DLC, Team Plasma and Jungle Camo, will they be FREE skins unlocked for doing something? Or are they NEW skins to PURCHASE?

1. Epic is removing the timestamp requirement on domination.

2. They come with the dlc and are useable as soon as you download the Map pack just like the new character skins.

Amazing guide! oh and props on the title image. Looks pretty sick. Would love if that were a real skin lol. Gonna mail in a card and get green liquid metal soon.

WeemanNewYork 10-06-2011 05:48 PM

I've looked but so far nothing. The place to keep an eye on is definitely the link at the top of the post since that is the official Epic catalog. If anyone finds a pic or youtube video be sure to post it.

I know I saw an image w/ both of them
*It was a picture regarding all the characters/skins on Blood Drive.

Not the best photo but it does show the skins somewhat, personally the Jungle Camo looks kinda neat.
But I will be sticking to my Gold Gnasher and IO/Green Liquid Lancer :P

A video of a skin called plasma. May or may not be what the skin included with the dlc will look like but gives us a basic idea.

Yea if you take a look at my photo the Onyx guard is holding a team plasma Lancer and its blue waves going across it like your video. So more then likely you are correct.

franticjoker30 10-06-2011 09:27 PM

I personnally like the tiger skin for my lancer its easy to find if you fail a horde wave

to expand more on that picutre, follow the below link for a HIGH res BIG picture.

I will be honest though...it does seriously look like the guns in that picture is the same as the Jungle Digital...maybe slightly different

http://epicgames.com/community/wp-co...dDrive_All.jpg

and if you compare it to this:

http://epicgames.com/community/wp-co...le-digital.jpg

very similar

If you look closely at the lancer the onyx guard has, you can kind of make out the blue the looks alot like the red in the vid I put up above.
