The Overwatch League’s 2020 season kicks off on February 8, and to celebrate, the league is giving fans the chance to unlock a brand-new GOATS-themed Brigitte skin for a limited time.

Exclusive OWL skins are nothing new, but this is the first time a skin that pays tribute to a period of the game’s competitive history has been introduced.

Brigitte’s new skin is called ‘GOATS,’ titled after the team composition first made popular by the Contenders team of the same name. GOATS went on to dominate for a year, until Blizzard introduced the Role Queue feature in 2019.

Blizzard EntertainmentThe GOATS comp consisted of three tanks, three healers and no DPS.

A GOAT is exactly what this skin turns Brigitte into, with purple hair, a blue tabard, and clean white armor covered in goat heads on her shoulders, shield, and back.

Her flail is even made out of horns, and to top it all off, she even sports little cloven hoof boots to cram as much “goat” into this skin as possible.

Brigitte’s GOAT skin is available for just under two weeks, beginning on February 6 and leaving the OWL shop on February 19.

A price for the skin hasn’t been announced yet, but other exclusive OWL skins like Jjonak’s Zenyatta and the All-Star Game skins have cost 200 OWL Tokens each, which is a good guess for what Brigitte’s GOAT skin will cost.

Fans who want to pick up the skin should make sure they get it before time runs out, because like all other exclusive OWL skins, once it’s out of the shop, it will be most likely gone for good.

It’s no secret a large number of Overwatch players weren’t fans of GOATS and the stranglehold it placed on the higher levels of the game for so long, but it is cool that the League is paying tribute to what was undoubtedly one of the most colorful periods in its history.

Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
