So, I have made a reskin of the scattergun. I have put it in the correct folders, but its not showing up in-game. I edited the c_scattergun  model. I made sure the file was VTF, and I quadruple-checked the folders were correct. I made sure I put it in tf/custom. Here is the directory I put it in:
tf/custom/CScatter (folder name)/materials/models/weapons/c_items/c_scattergun (the VTF file)

I really want this skin to work. Please help if you have any ideas.

    If you have "quadruple-checked" that the folders were correct, how come you're using the models/weapons/c_items/c_scattergun.vtf texture instead of models/weapons/c_models/c_scattergun/c_scattergun.vtf?

    The C_ Scattergun model changed which materials it used as of the Gun Mettle update, though, so don't worry, you're not completely wrong, the texture you tried editing was the right one at some point.
