Overwatch is known for having one of the most creative communities in gaming and now concept art master Antonio Demico has taken McCree back to class with an amazing Werewolf skin concept.

Demico has made a ton of great concept art for heroes before, and he usually shares his designs on Twitter once they’re done.

The skin pays homage to the classic 1985 film Teen Wolf, which stars Michael J. Fox as a high-school-nerd-turned-superstar-werewolf.

The skin makes McCree look like he would fit right in to a 1980’s movie with a letterman jacket and some retro sneakers.

The skin has Overwatch’s Bounty Hunter morphed to a furry killer, which perfectly fits the hero that it kind of makes one wonder why Blizzard didn’t do it first.

Demico even included phases of the moon details on McCree’s Peacekeeper revolver, that change as he fires.

You can almost hear McCree saying “It’s a Full Moon,” before adding in a little howl, for dramatic effect with this skin.

Werewolf McCree would make an excellent addition to the roster of enemies in Junkenstein’s Revenge during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event.

There’s still many moons until October, so the Overwatch team has plenty of time to whip up a Werewolf McCree skin, and Demico has given them a great place to start.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
