Their announcement goes on to state that each event featured during the season will have a Skin as a reward that can be earned by simply completing challenges. Some of the potential prizes include Epic Ice Queen Brigitte, Legendary Winged Victory Mercy, and Legendary Kkachi Echo among others.

You’ll also be able to earn additional in-game items by simply watching Overwatch 2 streamers on Twitch. One of the drops that could potentially be earned by viewing includes a Legendary Ramattra Skin.


The game’s 2021 Winter Wonderland event featured five Legendary Skins that could be acquired by simply playing during the event. These cosmetics included the Snowman Wrecking Ball, Ice Wraith Genji, Snowboarder Baptiste, Reindeer Orisa, and Sleighing D.Va.

Three Epic Skins were similarly made available through Weekly Challenges last year. These were the Wooltide Tracer Skin, the Mistletoe Symmetra Skin, and the Peppermint Bark Brigitte Skin.
