Can killstreaks be applied to the gun mettle skins for tf2?

I'm trying to add a specialized kit to my skinned smg, but it won't let me.

I'm just making sure it's even possible.

As far as I'm aware, you can use killstreak kits on the weapons as long as they correspond to their weapon type. There are already quite a few skins that have killstreaks on them being sold on the Community Market.

If you can't add the kit on it, it may most likely be due to a different reason. I would suggest you try later.

  • They were bugged for a bit, but Valve has since fixed it.

  • @Powerlord Which patch was it?

  • Well, apparently it only affected certain weapons. Revolvers and Pistols were fixed in the July 8 update. Shotguns and SMGs were fixed in the July 6 update. Still, that's 4 of the 10 decorated weapon types, so nearly 50%.
