You may have seen other players already holding a gun before the PUBG match starts. For some, that’s just a great way to show off their new cool skin. Others use the feature to annoy other players by shooting at them continuously, making noise, and disrupting the chat.

You can’t just carry the whole gun inventory to the match, though.

There are specific rules that must be met.

For example, you can only carry firearms that have Legendary or Mythic skins. You can carry Melee weapons to the lobby with Epic, Legendary, or Mythic skins. Rare upgradeable firearms can also be brought into the lobby.

You can select a gun and a melee weapon to be displayed simultaneously. The last selected weapon will be in the character’s hand, and the second weapon will be on the character’s back.

How Do I Find Out Whether a Weapon Is Epic, Legendary, or Mythic?

To carry a weapon to the lobby, you must meet the category requirement. You can find the weapon category in your weapon inventory. If the weapon is displayed on a dark blue background, it’s ordinary. Weapons of rarer categories that can be carried to the lobby are displayed on a purple gradient background.

How Do I Get Legendary Weapons in PUBG?

There are multiple ways of obtaining Legendary weapons in the game. They can be found in premium and seasonal crates, from regular crates if opened using a crate coupon, or obtained from Elite Battle Passes. Legendary and Mythic items can also be given as an award for completing seasonal event challenges.

If I Shoot Someone in the Lobby, Will They Die?

No, while you can shoot someone in the lobby, this will cause no damage. The very worst your shooting can do is lead to other players muting you in the chat.

Be in the Spotlight

Now that you know how to equip yourself in the lobby, your best weapons won’t be left unnoticed by the team. We don’t yet know whether the feature will remain in the next update, though. So, use your chance to obtain and show off new Legendary and Mythic guns now.
