One of the best parts of the Summer Games event is all the beach skins that who has already spawned countless fan tributes.

Roadhog does have some island skins, but they’re not really appropriate for a day on the beach, which is why artist Lionelthelion decided to give Roadhog a skin that you’ll either love or lose sleep over.

Summer Games means it's time to head to the beach.


Roadhog, get out of Widow's closet

In the spirit of great Overwatch mashups, Lionel decided to bring Widowmakers summer look to Roadhog and the results are both fantastic and slightly disturbing at the same time.

Widowmaker’s Cote D'azur skin is loved by fans and for some reason Roadhog has decided that it would be the perfect look for him as well.

Cote D'azur is one of Widow's most popular skins.

Roadhog is definitely bursting the seams of this outfit, so hopefully Widowmaker has a spare or two - because you definitely don’t want those back after he’s through with them.

Torbjorn’s new Summer Games skin proves that every hero deserves to have a day on the beach, but Roadhog may want to reconsider his choice of swimwear.

Or don't, we’re not here to tell you how to live your life, Mako.

You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.


The Summer Games are in full swing

While we’re on the subject, Roadhog isn’t the only hero to get a Summer Games mashup this year. Lionelthelion also decided to try out Torbjorn’s Surf n’ Splash skin on Reinhardt.

Surf n’ Splash Reinhardt is much less nightmare-inducing than Cote D’azur Hog, plus imagine how much fun it would be to smash squishies with a giant squeaky inflatable hammer.

Is this the perfect Reinhardt skin?

There’s still time left in Overwatch’s Summer Games for Lionelthelion to make another great beach skin mashup, if they want, so every hero can have their day in the sun.
