It’s officially here, Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event started on October 9 and brought with it nine new spooky skins for the game’s cast of heroes.

New, legendary skins this year will cost players 3,000 credits, and go down from there based on skin rarity. All new and old Halloween Terror cosmetics and skins will be available to unlock or purchase during the event.

‘Banshee’ Moira – Legendary

Blizzard Entertainment

This legendary Moira skin reimagines the scientist as a haunting banshee, and can be purchased for 3,000 coins.

‘Enchanted Armor’ Pharah – Legendary

Blizzard Entertainment

Enchanted Armor is the name for this legendary Pharah skin, and if you look closely you’ll notice Pharah isn’t even in the armor, it’s guided by some mystical force.

‘Bride’ Sombra – Legendary

Blizzard Entertainment

Sombra has risen from the grave (with a little help from Dr. Junkenstien) in her new ‘Bride’ skin, available as a legendary.

Undead McCree – Epic

Blizzard Entertainment

McCree is fresh from the coffin in this terrifying Epic skin, complete with ‘DAMF’ belt buckle and “It’s a full moon” voiceline.

Spider Widowmaker – Epic

Blizzard Entertainment

The perfect skin for Widow, ‘Spider’ almost seems like it should have been included from the beginning of Overwatch, but fans aren’t complaining about this spooky skin.

Swamp Monster Doomfist – Legendary

Blizzard Entertainment

Doomfist or Doomfish? Whatever you call this skin, it’s one of his best yet.

Jack-O’-Lantern Wrecking Ball – Legendary

Blizzard Entertainment

In what might be the cutest of the new Halloween skins, Hammond’s mech becomes a pumpkin and the hamster himself becomes a spooky little scarecrow.

Slasher: 76 – Legendary

Blizzard Entertainment

Soldier gets the Camp Crystal Lake makeover with this slasher skin worthy of a great horror movie that goes on to spawn countless sequels and remakes.

Pumpkin Mei – Epic

Blizzard Entertainment

Sorry Hammond, looks like Mei wins the prize for most adorable skin with this pumpkin outfit, complete with pumpkin spice can on her ice blaster.

Crafty Overwatch spot can give you the drop on Lijiang Tower

A new perch where Overwatch players can hang out has been discovered on Lijiang Tower’s Night Market stage, and it’s somewhere the enemy team will never think to look.

There are plenty of out the way and unexpected spots you can post up on in Overwatch, and the stages of Lijiang Tower contain a good number of them.

With plenty of roofs, walkways, nooks, and crannies, there are plenty of places to lay in wait for unsuspecting enemies, but this one discovered by Reddit user InfamousHandy on a whole other level.

Overwatch Lijang Tower Night market spot ( IDK if this spot was shown before) from Overwatch

In the area just outside the spawn room, there’s a building to the right (or left depending on which side you’re on) that’s covered in dark awnings. As you can see, with an ability like Reaper’s Shadowstep it’s actually possible to get up there and chill as long as you like.

If you can get up to this spot on the enemy side with your ult without being seen or destroyed, you have a chance to drop down and score some eliminations while the other team is still regrouping.

It’s not just Reaper who can reach it either, Echo, Pharah, and Lucio also can on their own, and any hero can as well with the help of Symmetra’s Teleporter. Just imagine what it would be like to get a Bastion up there.

The only downside is that to have any chance in a regular match of getting kills with this, you will most likely have to make your way to the enemy side of the map, which can be a challenge all on its own sometimes.

Side corridors are your friend for sneaking around on Night Market, shown here, ironically, during the day.

To increase your chances of making it across undetected, we’d suggest using the side corridors, if you lack a movement ability that lets you avoid the ground altogether, like Lucio.

With the Lunar New Year event coming right up after Winter Wonderland though, this strat might be worth keeping in your back pocket for those special Capture the Flag modes.
