Grand Beast Orisa Mythic skin details

The new Mythic skin for Season 8 of Overwatch 2 is called Grand Beast Orisa. The tank hero gains tusks, a large horn on her head, and different color palettes to choose from. These colors include the base color, blue, red, and purple. There are also two weapon variations to choose from.

Players got their first look at the new skin through a video post from the official Overwatch Twitter, that showed off the skin for the first time. Some fans were not happy about the skin’s resemblance to another skin of Orisa’s, the Dynastinae and Megasoma skins. However, the ability to customize this skin is a huge factor. As with other Mythic skins, this skin for Orisa will also change the visuals for her Ultimate. The skin will also alter several of the ability sound effects.

Blizzard also got into some trouble for the lack of customization options available with Season 7’s Mythic for Hanzo, so hopefully the amount of options for Grand Beast Orisa will satisfy fans.

Eight to choose from

With the addition of Grand Beast Orisa, there are now eight Mythic skins in total available in Overwatch 2. These include Cyber Demon Genji, Zeus Junker Queen, Amaterasu Kiriko, Galactic Emperor Sigma, Adventurer Tracer, A-7000 Wargod Ana, and Onryō Hanzo.
