In Battlefield 1 you can earn and equip different weapon skins through Battlepacks. For whatever reason, you can’t just equip these skins at the Soldier Menu on the Main Menu. Check out this guide to find out How To Change Weapon Skins In Battlefield 1!
How To Switch Weapon Skins In Battlefield 1As stated above, you can’t just do it at the menu. You will actually need to be in-game to switch your skin. Before you start a match you will have to pick a class. Remember that certain weapons are only open to certain classes so make sure the skin you want is actually on the class you are playing. Let’s say for instance you have a M 18 skin. Select the Assault Class and customize it with that weapon. When you have the weapon equipped click Triangle, or Y on the Xbox(not sure on PC), and you will get some more options. Here you can switch a few things but at the bottom you can change the Visuals. This is where you can equip a new weapon skin.
You can also switch the skin on Planes if you have the Red Baron pack. There is a visual option for Tanks but I didn’t have a skin, and I didn’t see the option to earn one in a Battlepack so that might be down the line. I didn’t get to look on the horses, it took a few rounds to figure this out myself. Now you can make yourself look just a little bit different from anyone else. Oh, I almost forgot. You can earn a skin by beating the campaign as well.
