The magazine is complemented with an image of an astronaut with a red planet in the background and the inscription “Nebula Crusader”. Individual parts of the weapon are painted solid red. The back part of the buttstock is adorned with a black image of a star with an orbit. The rear sight and individual parts of the weapon are not painted.
Float Value of the skin ranges from 0.00 to 1.00, which makes M249 | Nebula Crusader available in all conditions.
