New Sombra Overwatch Halloween Terror skin leaked?

It’s almost time for Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event to get started and it seems like one final skin has been leaked ahead of the update, this time it’s Sombra finally getting her own Halloween skin.

The skin seems to be based on the Bride of Frankenstein character, with distinctive white lines running through her hair and a greenish tint to her skin.

She’s also wearing the white dress/nightgown outfit commonly associated with Frankenstein’s Monster’s better half.

Sombra doesn’t have a Halloween skin yet, so it’s good to see her get some spooky love from Blizzard this year.

We don’t know the exact name or rarity of this skin yet, but it’s a good bet ‘bride’ will be somewhere in the name and based on Sombra’s other skins, this one will probably be available as a legendary.

The images of the new skin were posted to Twitter before any official announcement of the new skin or the launch of the event.

Doomfist, Moira, McCree, Pharah, Widowmaker and now Sombra all have confirmed Halloween skins to make the total of 6 new skins for this year’s Halloween Terror.

Halloween Terror starts on October 9 and runs through the end of the month on October 31, besides skins, there will be voice lines, sprays and emotes to collect as well.

Crafty Overwatch spot can give you the drop on Lijiang Tower

A new perch where Overwatch players can hang out has been discovered on Lijiang Tower’s Night Market stage, and it’s somewhere the enemy team will never think to look.

There are plenty of out the way and unexpected spots you can post up on in Overwatch, and the stages of Lijiang Tower contain a good number of them.

With plenty of roofs, walkways, nooks, and crannies, there are plenty of places to lay in wait for unsuspecting enemies, but this one discovered by Reddit user InfamousHandy on a whole other level.

In the area just outside the spawn room, there’s a building to the right (or left depending on which side you’re on) that’s covered in dark awnings. As you can see, with an ability like Reaper’s Shadowstep it’s actually possible to get up there and chill as long as you like.

If you can get up to this spot on the enemy side with your ult without being seen or destroyed, you have a chance to drop down and score some eliminations while the other team is still regrouping.

It’s not just Reaper who can reach it either, Echo, Pharah, and Lucio also can on their own, and any hero can as well with the help of Symmetra’s Teleporter. Just imagine what it would be like to get a Bastion up there.

The only downside is that to have any chance in a regular match of getting kills with this, you will most likely have to make your way to the enemy side of the map, which can be a challenge all on its own sometimes.

Side corridors are your friend for sneaking around on Night Market, shown here, ironically, during the day.

To increase your chances of making it across undetected, we’d suggest using the side corridors, if you lack a movement ability that lets you avoid the ground altogether, like Lucio.

With the Lunar New Year event coming right up after Winter Wonderland though, this strat might be worth keeping in your back pocket for those special Capture the Flag modes.
