Blizzard has unveiled an exclusive new Brigitte skin that will be available through a Twitch promo happening during the second Overwatch 2 beta. Here’s how to unlock it yourself.
Just before the second Overwatch 2 beta kicked off, Blizzard announced a promo with Twitch for players to unlock a brand-new Legendary Brigitte skin called “Medic.”
The new cosmetic is an extra bonus for StarCraft fans, as it depicts Brig as a Terran Medic, with the Raynor’s Raider’s logo on her chest. This makes sense, since Reinhardt has a Raynor skin as well, so master and student will go together perfectly.
Here’s how you can unlock Medic Brigitte, and how long the promo will be lasting.
How to unlock Brigitte Medic skin with Twitch Support a Streamer promo
To unlock this exclusive skin, players will need to have a Twitch account linked to their Blizzard account, first and foremost. After that’s done, all you need to do is gift three subs to a participating streamer while they’re playing the Overwatch 2 beta anytime from June 29 at 11:00 a.m. PDT until July 20 at 11:00 a.m. PDT.
Once you do that, you’ll get a code sent to your battle.net account that you can redeem for this new Brigitte skin, which will transfer over to Overwatch 2 as well. Any tier of subscription will work, but subs gifted anonymously will not count for the promo.
Below is a list of all the participating streamers, and links to their channels, that you can gift subs to and receive the skin during the promo:
With Overwatch 2 going free-to-play, expect to see these type of promos become more frequent. While you’ll still have to pay around $15 USD to unlock this skin, it’s good to see Blizzard finally supporting Overwatch streamers like this.
This will definitely boost the game’s reach on Twitch during the second Overwatch 2 beta, and could be a massive incentive for streamers to broadcast the game as well. Not only that, but players get an awesome StarCraft crossover skin to boot.
