About the M4 - Black Gold Royal Skin
Previously released as a premium blueprint, the M4 - Black Gold Royal does pack decent aesthetics. Although it pales in comparison with the recent legendary skins in the game, especially is comparison with the DR-H - Kurohana, given that it was also a free legendary skin. However, the M4 does come with a minimal grind which makes up for it, making it easily unlockable for beginners and casual players.
The gun also comes with a custom iron sight which reduces aim shake and gun kick scale, offering better vision while firing like most other legendary skins in the game. Even so, the M4 is not a top choice in the game and will struggle to compete against the meta weapons in season 2.
