With Overwatch 2’s Lunar New Year event on the horizon, we know for certain fans will be able to unlock a fresh Legendary Skin for Moira. Here’s how you can grab the Mask Dancer Skin through Twitch drops.

Ever since Overwatch 2 came into focus, replacing the original game in the process, events have been handled in a unique way. Rather than supplying a wide range of new Skins in loot boxes as the first title did, many new cosmetics in Overwatch 2 are either locked in the store or exclusive to Twitch.

Just by watching along on the streaming platform, fans have been able to unlock a number of Legendary cosmetics, including the recent Sleighing D.Va Legendary skin during the Winter Wonderland event.

This time Moira and her Mask Dancer Skin are in focus and fans may notice it’s the same skin from the 2020 iteration of the event. Here’s how you can unlock the Legendary cosmetic for yourself in Overwatch 2.
