The best part of any new Overwatch event is always the new hero skins that come with it, and Anniversary 2020 is certainly no exception.

There are five new Legendary and three new Epic skins for a total of eight brand new hero looks for Anniversary 2020. The Epics are only available through the three weekly challenges, which require players to win nine games in set amount of time.

It’s important to note that Anniversary is the only time of the year when every past event hero skin is also able to be unlocked as well, so any cosmetics you may have missed will also be up for grabs in event loot boxes.

Carbon Fiber Sigma – Epic – Week One Challenge (May 19 – 26)

Sigma is the first hero to have a skin available in the weekly mini-challenges that have become commonplace during Overwatch events.

They’re extremely simple too, all you have to do is win nine games of any game mode in a week, and you’ll unlock the skin. Carbon Fiber Sigma is available from May 19 to May 26, before our next skin becomes the reward.

Sigma finally gets some fly shades with his new Carbon Fiber skin.

Fleur de Lis Widowmaker – Epic – Week Two Challenge (May 26 – June 2)

Widowmaker’s Fleur de Lis skin is the second Epic challenge skin, available from May 26 to June 2.

The Fleur de Lis is a popular symbol in France, which means it makes the perfect skin for Overwatch’s resident French hero.

It’s important to remember that none of these Epic skins can be purchased outright, so to unlock them you’ll have to do the challenges or miss out on them for good.

Blizzard Entertainment
It’s quite the classy skin for an equally classy hero.

Masked Man McCree – Epic – Week Three Challenge (June 2 – June 9)

Finally, the last weekly challenge reward skin is Masked Man McCree, available from June 2 to June 9.

This skin is obviously inspired by The Lone Ranger as well (it literally says “Ranger” on his poncho as well).

His belt buckle reads “HYSA” which is a nod to The Lone Ranger’s famous catchphrase “Hi Yo Silver, Away!” in reference to his horse, Silver, and not our DPS Competitive rank.

Blizzard Entertainment
Who is the man behind the mask?

Dragoon Mercy – Legendary – 3000 Credits

Sadly, Mercy’s new Dragoon skin didn’t turn out to be another StarCraft crossover, but that doesn’t change the fact it looks great.

Not everyone is a fan of this skin’s color scheme, and some fans have even come up with their own alternatives, but for now, it seems we’ll just have settle for green.

Blizzard Entertainment
Mercy joins Symmetra with a dragon-themed skin of her own for Anniversary 2020.

Huitzilopochtli Zenyatta – Legendary – 3000 Credits

Huitzilopochtli Zenyatta, besides being an absolute mouthful of a name, is also one of those top-tier skins that every Zen main will need to pick up before Anniversary 2020 wraps up on June 9.

Blizzard Entertainment
Try saying the name of this skin five times fast.

Submarine Wrecking Ball – Legendary – 3000 Credits

A fine addition to anyone’s Wrecking Ball collection, the new Submarine skin will feel even more appropriate as you Piledrive the enemy team’s backline. Maybe the mines for his ultimate will also be transformed into floating ocean mines, for that extra little touch.

Blizzard Entertainment
Submarine captain Hammond is one of those skins we never knew we needed until we saw it.

Masquerade Reaper – Legendary – 3000 Credits

Reaper’s new Masquerade skin definitely deserves its “Legendary” title, since it’s definitely one of the most-requested skins in Overwatch history.

It might not look exactly like the amazing fan art of the skin did, but Blizzard’s version does just as good of a job at looking fantastic.

Blizzard Entertainment
After four years, we finally got Reaper’s Masquerade skin.

Little Red Ashe – Legendary – 3000 Credits

Ashe’s skins area always a bonus because she gets a skin for B.O.B. as well, and Anniversary 2020 knocked it out of the park by turning her into Little Red Ridinghood, and her butler into the Big Bad Wolf. This is one we can’t wait to unlock.

Blizzard Entertainment
Ashe looks good sure, but check out how great B.O.B. is in this skin.

Genius Overwatch trick lets Mercy escape fights on Numbani

Mercy has a new path to safety on Numbani thanks to an extremely clever Overwatch trick that lets her glide away from intense teamfights.

If you’re ever stuck in a pickle as Mercy, you can always fall back on her Guardian Angel ability to get you out of trouble. Moving from one spot to another in the blink of an eye can easily keep you alive when things are looking grim.

Angelic Descent also comes in handy, enabling Mercy as one of the more mobile Supports in the game. Her kit might be limited in terms of offensive output. However, she can move through the air like no other hero. It turns out her movement abilities might even be more useful than you’d first think.

A genius new spot on the first point of Numbani can have you gliding to safety in no time at all. Here’s what you need to know so you can execute it for yourself.

Overwatch Numbani gameplay
Directly behind the Payload is where you want to line up for this unique trick.

If you’re positioned towards the back of the first capture point, you might be familiar with the often-deadly drop. It can be all too easy to get booped and fall to your death in this position. Whether it’s a Lucio flying overhead or a Wrecking Ball crashing into your team, you’ve likely experienced some pain in this location.

However, playing near this spot is worth the risk for this particular reward with Mercy. A simple tree beyond the railing is actually the perfect distance to jump right into. Once wedged between the branches, you can quickly walk forward and navigate up the front of the tree.

While you might think there’s nowhere to go from here, Mercy’s Angelic Descent completely changes the game. With a perfectly timed jump, you can slowly glide around the corner. This lets you rotate all the way behind the first point and land safely next to the street.

There’s a Mega health pack waiting for you upon landing as well. Just in case you get tagged up while making your escape.

First Point Escape Option |Numbani| For anyone who didn’t know you could do this as Mercy from Overwatch

It might not come in handy for every team fight, but if things are looking dire, it could be the perfect way to get out with your life.

Not feeding the enemy team is often just as important as building your own Ultimates. So keep this unique trick in mind the next time Numbani appears in rotation. It’s just another next-level tactic for Support mains to have at the ready.
