A small number of challenges unlock Skins for your class type at a certain challenge level; usually level 3 or 5.

Which challenge levels unlock which skins?

Best Answer

The following 33 challenges grant skins - data is inconsistent/conflicting on which tier of each challenge grants it, so they are presented without levels, but presented with the objective of each challenge. Note that two different challenges grant the same skin (Pink Pandacorn). Note that some challenges must first be unlocked by gaining levels in other, previous challenges (usually associated with the same weapon).
