Overwatch’s Halloween Terror Event returns today

Although 2020 took millennia, we are now somehow mid-October. As scary as the time is, Overwatch is set to make another attempt to scare the Bejeezus out of us with its annual Halloween Terror Event – spooky new skins, emotes, and a limited-time battle against a cackling Australian army of undead robots.

What could be scarier than limited-time cosmetic loot boxes? Oooooh, I already feel a shiver down my back.

While I wish Overwatch would build on Survival Mode beyond Junkenstein̵

7;s Revenge, the Horror Horde mini-game has a lot more variations this year, at least. There are two new “Challenge Missions” each week that add twists and turns like faster zombies or a deadly ghost chasing players around the arena in spelunky style. Ashe and Baptiste were also added to the Junkenstein list as The Outlaw and The Renegade, respectively.

As has become the norm, Halloween Terror comes with three weekly reward ladders to unlock scary new cosmetics. If you win 9 games a week, you unlock the Day-Glo Fantasma Sombra, the rock-hard Steinbrigitte or the really rather scary Ragdoll Echo.

Look right, I really don’t like dolls.

The rest of the skins? You know the exercise – you need to save those coins or get lucky with your loot boxes. Some of them are really good too – I’ve never been big on Sigma, but his Flying Dutchman skin is absolutely creepy while Winston really rocks the lumberjack-werewolf look. In addition to earlier and old emotes and intros, all previous Halloween Terror skins are also returning. Absolutely confident that widowmaker will eat this spider.

Overwatch’s Halloween Terror starts today and runs through November 3rd.
