Blizzard has just released a new Epic Hanzo Skin in the latest Overwatch update and unlocking it couldn’t be simpler. Here’s everything you need to know.

A brand new Kyogisha Hanzo Skin is now live in Overwatch along with the new Kanezaka Deathmatch map. The unique cosmetic is only available for a limited time — but you won’t have to pay a dollar to unlock it.

Outside of seasonal events, the Overwatch community is often treated to individual Skin releases. From LEGO Bastion to the Nano Cola D.Va skin and plenty more. Now, it’s Hanzo’s turn in the spotlight with his own unique cosmetic.

Alongside the new look is a handful of similarly themed rewards including Sprays and Player Icons. You can claim it all without much of a hassle. Here’s everything you need to know.

How to get the Kyogisha Hanzo Skin

There are two separate tasks if you’re looking to unlock everything on offer in the latest update. The first part couldn’t be simpler though. All you need to do is play and win in Overwatch. There are no specific requirements, no certain heroes to play as or anything of the sort. Simply winning in Overwatch will get the job done.

Quick Play, Competitive Play, and any Arcade mode will all contribute progress. Therefore, you’ll always be chipping away at the new items without having to put much effort into it. Winning just nine games in total before January 25 will unlock three exclusive rewards.

Kanezaka Challenge rewards

  • 3 Wins | Pagoda Player Icon
  • 6 Wins | Yōkai Spray
  • 9 Wins | 1 New Epic Skin: Kyogisha Hanzo

The Epic skin is completely original from anything Hanzo has had before. You won’t be able to grab it anytime after this event period, so be sure to get your games in soon.

Outside of these three rewards for playing the game, you can also grab a few other items without even needing to open Overwatch.  No different from earlier events, players will also be rewarded just for watching their favorite streamers play the game.

Tuning in to any OW livestream on Twitch from now until January 25 will earn you progress towards an assortment of new Sprays. Here are the requirements for each step:

Kanezaka Challenge stream-time rewards

  • 2 Hours Watched | 1 New Spray
  • 4 Hours Watched | 2 New Sprays
  • 6 Hours Watched | 3 New Sprays

You won’t have to worry about binging all six hours on the first day. Slowly chipping away at this one over the course of the event works just as well. 

These exclusive rewards will be live across all platforms until January 25. Meaning you’ll have roughly two weeks to get your games in and kick back with your favorite streamers.

How to complete Cannavaro ICON SBC in FIFA 21: solutions, cost, more

EA SPORTS has released another trio of new ICON cards for FIFA 21 including one for legendary Italian center back Fabio Cannavaro, and we have all the info you need to unlock it quickly and without spending every single coin you have (hopefully).

Icon cards are some of the most powerful to come out in each new FIFA game, and Prime Icons are the best of these best, so it’s no surprise that Cannavaro is an absolute powerhouse.

The Italian was part of his nation’s 2006 World Cup-winning team, and has so many more accolades that could be an article itself. But we’re not here to look at that, we’re here to look at his FIFA 21 stats, requirements, cheapest price, and solution, so let’s get right into it.

Stats for Fabio Cannavaro’s Prime Icon card in FIFA 21.

Obviously the highlight here is Fabio’s Defending, and why wouldn’t it be? It comes in at a 95, a three-point upgrade from 92 on his Mid-tier card.

Pace sees a four-point boost from 76 to 80 as well, and Physicality is also up three from 82 to 85 for this card. If you’re building an Italian team to end all Italian teams, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bigger brick wall than Cannavaro.

Cannavaro Prime ICON SBC price & requirements

For a card with such high-end defensive stats, it’s not all too expensive if we look at how ICON cards have been normally priced. Altogether it should run you around 894,000 to 1.2 million FUT Coins, depending on which platform you prefer to play on.

If you’ve played Ultimate Team at all you’ll know that ICONS aren’t just expensive, they also mean a lot of requirements. Here there are seven separate ones to complete, but you do also get a pack reward for each as well, in addition to Cannavaro’s Prime ICON card at the end.
