Golden is a major skin series that can only be obtained via the Golden Skincrate.
Anyone killed by a weapon that has the Golden skin will goldify, the only skin to be able to inflict a unique status effect.
This had a variant during DEMO; the Golden skin for the M93R which was even rarer than this skin. Only PlaceRebuilder could legally buy it, and many people were banned because of a glitch which allowed you to purchase it.
- Not the first golden skin, with the Golden Skin for the M93R as the first one.
- The Golden skin for the Tinpot inverts the model of Tinpot.
- If you include this as an exclusive skin, this is the sixth exclusive skin.
- The Golden is the first skin to inflict a status effect shown in this picture.
- The Golden effect was inspired by the Saxxy effect from Team Fortress 2.
- The trail of the RPG no sparkles whenever a Golden warhead is shot.
- First skin to have multiple official designers:
- Peacemaker by Username Withheld.
- Steyr M, AK-47, Rambo Knife, Barrett 50 Cal., FATAL5 and Remington 700 by BelowNatural.
- Shovel, Luger P08, Tinpot and Newspaper by PlaceRebuilder.
- Winchester by LITTLEROBBY11 and FindingMyBoat.
- Rest by LITTLEROBBY11.
