The story progresses into the following skin – Cedar’s Decay – which, suitably, exhibits the weapon descending right into a decayed state, with a rust-like coating creeping up its barrel.
The ultimate skin, ‘Aftermath’, is themed on a stage of the plot that centres on the trophies seen in Nuke’s workplaces being not what they appear, pointing to some sort of secret and, then, an incident.
“The trophies, certificates…all lies,” the skin’s description on the Workshop reads, organising the story behind it. It paints an image of a conspiracy: “‘Shortcuts left and proper. A plot is underway and I do know it. I have to get this out earlier than…’”, a “recovered audio log” captures, earlier than gunshot after which static comply with. Gulp.
