Overwatch’s new “Comic Challenge” mini-event offers a brand new Tracer skin to unlock, and it’s jam-packed with all sorts of detail and exclusive features to discover.

Limited-time events are one of the nice little surprises Blizzard likes to throw fans from time to time, and the aptly named “Comic Challenge” celebrates the debut of the first new Overwatch comic in over two years with an awesome Epic Tracer cosmetic.

Called “Comic Book” Tracer, this skin looks like it should be rarer than an Epic, but every mini-event reward has been Epic so far – and we all know Overwatch devs like to stick to tradition when it comes to events.

The latest reward might be the most creative one yet, though (sorry Nano Cola D.Va), because from her comic panel leggings to her tricked out guns, there’s plenty to take in – including some brand new exclusive melee sound effects.

When Tracer pistol whips someone while wearing her new skin, a trumpet sound effect plays that sounds very similar to the score of a fight scene in the old Adam West Batman TV show.

It’s also comparable to the sound Lucio’s Jazzy skin makes when you switch up your crossfade, though it’s probably safe to say Lena’s new audio easter egg is about 1 million times less annoying than that one.

Tracer also gets a number of new voice lines that go along with the sprays available as rewards in the event. When she puts one of the new sprays down, she’ll shout out whatever it says. So if you’ve ever wanted to hear her say “pew pew” after melting an enemy backline, you are in luck.

If you want Tracer’s new “Comic Book” skin and all the other unlockables available along with it, be sure to win youur nine games and watch the required amount of Overwatch streams before the event wraps up on Sept. 28. Like all the other LTE skins, once the event ends, Jeff will be locking it away for good, so make sure not to miss out.

The good news is that just a day after the Comic Challenge ends, the awesome 2020 OWL All-Stars skins for Reinhardt and D.Va will be available, starting Sept. 29.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
