At first, PUBG's new server set up will only be available in a limited test. Unsurprisingly you can only get skins in crates, either the Triumph or the Raider crates (the latter being free, and the former being, you guessed it, unlocked with a key you have to buy).
The test server update also addresses a couple of minor bugs.
Gun skins are one of the many new things that PUBG is doing to try and shake up the game.
The drop rates for both crates are detailed in the announcement.
