Overwatch's Halloween Terror is upon us and despite missing from the previously leaked list of new skins, it appears that Genji got one for the event after all.

Halloween Terror has been somewhat unkind to Overwatch's resident cyborg ninja since he was the oldest hero from the list of the ones that didn't receive a spooky skin. A leak appeared recently with a list of skins that were supposed to be added and it was correct for the most part, except it didn't mention the Genji skin.

Just when the fans lost hope, the event kicked off and Overwatch's official Twitter released a preview video that featured him alongside his estranged brother that keeps getting inexplicable headshots.

There is a total of eight new skins:

  • Legendary
    • Dai-Tengu Hanzo
    • Flying Dutchman Sigma
    • Karasu-Tengu Genji
    • Shin-Ryeong D.Va
    • Werewolf Winston
  • Epic
    • Fantasma Sombra
    • Stone Brigitte
    • Ragdoll Echo

The Epic skins can be earned at no extra cost by simply winning nine matches throughout each of the Halloween Terror's three weeks .


Besides the skins, there is one new emote, Zombie Walk for Reinhardt, and two highlight intros - Itsy Bitsy Spider for Widowmaker and Target Practice for Pharah.
