New item distribution system could be implemented with the next update
Content creator iBakhmet told how users will be able to purchase a new pan skin in PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS.
According to Bakhmetiev, in 21.2 Update the developers will introduce a new system for selling items, in which skins from one large set will be divided into several levels. You'll be able to buy items on a certain level only after purchasing items from the previous level.
So, in the case of the upgradable frying pan players will have to first buy a backpack (level 1), helmet and weapon charm (level 2) and set (level 3) - only after that will be available for the purchase of the pan (level 4).
