Players Can Craft Weapon Skins Using 3 Unique Fragments

Players need at least three unique fragments fitting the weapon and skin type in order to craft a skin. They’ll also get the option to use a Wildcard fragment if they can’t find a particular fragment required for a skin. These wildcards will be available both in-game as rewards and on the upcoming marketplace.

With the passage of time, older fragments will be halted, and new fragments will roll in-game. This means that the older unused fragments will only be available on the marketplace, which will naturally raise their price along with the value of associated skins. This gives players the incentives to trade on the marketplace.
