Overwatch League Skins
There are a few ways to get skins in Overwatch. Skins are known as “cosmetics” that can be used to change the appearance of individual heroes. It’s often more than just an outfit change, and they can change the look of their weapons or the color scheme for a particular hero.
Common skins are the default, Rare skins typically change the color scheme of a hero, Epic skins change the color, and other appearances and Legendary are usually complete costume changes, added dialogue, emotes, and more. You can already buy skins with credits, similar to the Overwatch League Token scheme, but most skins are gathered from earning loot boxes. Season-specific skins, such as those available during the recent Winter event, come in seasonal loot boxes.
The skins are available to buy using the Overwatch Tokens system or by completing weekly challenges. Skins are a great way to customize your avatar while also showing other players your triumphs. New Skins are released each season, and assuming your participate, do well, and play by the guidelines of that season, you’ll get some new skins.
If you opt to do weekly challenges, you will get new Skins after playing a certain amount of games. Weekly challenges offer various prizes at the end. You can see the upcoming weekly challenges and the Skins you can win on the Battle.net website.
Lastly, you can get Overwatch Skins in Loot Boxes. You can get Loot Boxes by leveling up or purchase them in the game by selecting the Shop.
