The first-ever Overwatch League MVP skin made especially for Sung-hyeon “JJoNak” Bang of the New York Excelsior is now available in game.

Jjonak was crowned Most Valuable Player of the Overwatch League’s Inaugural season in part because of his godlike Zenyatta play, that’s more or less continued to the current season as well.

To celebrate his achievement, Blizzard designed Jjonak his very own Zenyatta skin and were nice enough to give the rest of us the chance to get our hands on it as well.

Blizzard EntertainmentJjonak seems to really like the skin Blizzard made just for him.

How do we get the new skin?

The MVP Zenyatta skin is based on the pro’s love for octopuses, JJonak stands for “jjomullak najki,” or “fumbling octopus” and he even has one tattooed on his arm.

The skin looks incredible with little octopus orbs, and definitely worthy of one of the best Overwatch players around.

Blizzard EntertainmentThe “Zen-Nakji” Legendary skin is a must-have for any true Zenyatta fan.

Now regular players have the chance to get their hands on the skin from June 27 to July 14 for 200 Overwatch League Tokens, which can either be bought with real money or earned from watching OWL on Twitch.

The skin can be unlocked by going to the Overwatch League menu in game and selecting the grey OWL tab, where it can be found right next to the Lucio Dance Party emote.

Big changes coming to the Overwatch League

After announcing his retirement from the Overwatch League, former L.A. Gladiators pro Baek ‘Fissure’ Chan-hyung confirmed on stream that the League would be going to a 2-2-2 role lock for Stage 4 of the current second season.

This would mean that teams would be forced to run two DPS, two tanks and two supports, which would essentially eliminate the GOATs composition from play.

Whether or not this means that 2-2-2 will be coming to the main game for everyone else remains to be seen, but if it does it would be one of the biggest changes to ever happen to Overwatch since the game came out.

Cosplay

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.
