March onto the point with Orisa’s hilarious Overwatch skin design

Orisa has a hilarious new skin, thanks to one creative Overwatch fan and artist - which could be one of her most entertaining cosmetics, if it were ever real.

One of the earliest new heroes to join Overwatch, Orisa has amassed a decent collection of skins over the years, but as with every hero, there’s always room for more.

Thus, Overwatch fan and artist StutterGuy decided to make their own skin for Orisa that makes her the leader of her own one-Omnic band.

There's always room for more Orisa skins.


Marching to the beat of her own Supercharger

Called “Marching Band Orisa” the skin looks exactly how you’re picturing it - complete with a big, feathered cap that seems to serve no real purpose.

“Decided to draw it as more of an epic rather than a legendary because her anatomy is confusing AF,” StutterGuy said about the skin, which is creatively re-colored to make it look like Orisa is in a marching band uniform.

Marching Band Orisa, the skin we never knew we needed until we saw it.

This skin would go perfectly with her dressage emote from the Summer Games event, just the idea of Marching Band Orisa prancing around is absolutely hilarious.

The skin would make a great addition to the Anniversary lineup, but Blizzard could introduce a skin like this anytime and people probably wouldn’t mind too much.


Orisa changes on the PTR

Besides some new skin ideas, Orisa has also gotten a “hidden” buff on the PTR that wasn’t listed in the patch notes.

In the August 22 Overwatch PTR patch, Orisa’s Fortify ability was buffed to reduce knockback and make it harder to move her around while active.

The changes to fortify should be an improvement for Orisa players.

With a brand new shield tank hero coming out, you'd think Orisa may have lost some popularity, but the way things are going with the Sigma/Orisa combo, we could see a lot more of her in the future.
