Overwatch Lunar New Year

Overwatch’s Lunar New Year 2021 is in full swing!

Celebrating the Year of the Ox, Blizzard has just launched Overwatch’s Lunar New Year event. The event started yesterday, February 4th, and runs until February 25th. The update includes a handful of new cosmetics as well as a brand new brawl to try out.

The new brawl, called Bounty Hunter, has players collecting bounties and trying to take out a designated target. The player who scores the first kill of the match becomes a target and everyone else a bounty hunter. Whoever kills the target then becomes the new target and so on and so forth.
