For example, if you want to unlock Reaper’s Silhouette Icon, you need to select Reaper at the start of the match and go on to win the game using him – and do this 15 times.

Your reward will of course be the cool-looking Silhouette Icon which you’ll be able to select from the customization screen.

It will take some time, but winning 15 games shouldn’t be too difficult, and your reward will be a special cosmetic that you at least know how to get now!
