Out of this world Overwatch skin makes Mercy look alien

Bill Cooney

One creative Overwatch fan has made a completely original skin for Mercy that transforms her into a Xenomorph from the Alien series.

Mercy has been in the game since the beginning and is one of Overwatch’s quintessential Support heroes.

She has plenty of in-game skins already, but that wasn’t enough to stop dedicated Mercy fan and artist Cristina Koenig from making an original skin for her.

“Sometimes you scare me!”

Xenomorph Mercy definitely has a bit of creepiness to her, with her normal face just on an alien body only adds to the disturbing factor.

Her hair and wings have been turned neon green, which is appropriate considering the Alien’s green acid blood.

This Mercy skin might be a bit creepy, but heals are heals even if they do result in a tiny Mercy bursting out of you at some point in the future.

There’s still a few weeks until we even get close to October, but this concept would make a great skin for Halloween Terror, if Mercy is one of the heroes to get a new skin this year.

What about actual new skins?

Speaking of new skins, the Overwatch League officially announced that an exclusive new Winston skin would be available near the end of August.

“Flying Ace” Winston will be available from August 29 to September 16, so players who want to get it should start saving their Overwatch League tokens now.

OWL Tokens can be earned by watching Overwatch League matches on Twitch, if you have your accounts linked.

So even though Xeno Mercy might not be real, at least we have a fantastic new Winston skin to look forward to and a little time to earn a few more tokens.
