Overwatch’s Halloween Terror Event is Live From Now Until Nov 2nd

Overwatch Halloween 2021

Overwatch’s Halloween event, Halloween Terror 2021, is in full swing, meaning you can nab your favourite Overwatch characters a series of spooky skins.

The catch is that you’ve got to earn these skins, either as part of the online shooter’s events. There are a series of lesser skin rewards which include Skeleton Genji, Einherjar Zarya (basically a slightly gothy Zarya) and Clown Roadhog. These are unlockable through weekly challenges; you don’t have to win, just play, but winning will unlock them twice as quickly.

The full schedule/reward requirements are as follows:

Week 1

  • Play 9 Games | Skeleton Genji Spray
  • Play 18 Games | Skeleton Genji Player Icon
  • Play 27 Games | Skeleton Genji Epic Skin

Week 2

  • Play 9 Games | Einherjar Zarya Spray
  • Play 18 Games | Einherjar Zarya Player Icon
  • Play 27 Games | Einherjar Zarya Epic Skin

Week 3

  • Play 9 Games | Clown Roadhog Spray
  • Play 18 Games | Clown Roadhog Player Icon
  • Play 27 Games | Clown Roadhog Epic Skin

There are also new rewards, which give you some even snazzier legendary skins;
Draugr Reinhardt, Satyr Lucio, Vampire Bat Echo, Coffin Bastion and Vampire Hunter Brigitte. Vampire Hunter Brigitte is by far our favourite but it’s a shame this incarnation has blonde hair because if she’d kept it red she’d look even more like Marvel’s Elsa Bloostone.

You can find full details of the event (which runs till Nov 2nd) on Overwatch’s official website. Overwatch is available for PC, Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
