Four new animated WarCraft 3 sprays were sneakily added to Overwatch with the Halloween Terror update, but fans won’t be able to purchase them with credits as usual.

Overwatch’s October 15 update brought the latest installment of the Halloween Terror event live, introduced a massive new patch and saw the game’s Switch port come out as well.

Also in the update, Blizzard apparently snuck in four new animated sprays to celebrate the upcoming release of WarCraft 3 Reforged.

WarCraft 3 Reforged will be a complete overhaul for the classic Blizzard game.


What are the sprays?

The new WarCraft 3 sprays in Overwatch feature the basic infantry unit of each race in the game: Archers for Night Elf, Footmen for Humans, Ghouls for Undead and Grunts for Orcs.

The sprays show each unit’s attacking animation and are some of the only animated sprays in Overwatch outside of the Competitive rewards for making into Top 500 each season.

How do we unlock them?

The “secret” sprays can only be unlocked by purchasing WarCraft 3 Reforged Spoils of War Edition, which is available now and includes bonus items in a bunch of other Blizzard games as well.

There’s still no definite release date for WarCraft 3 Reforged just yet, but we should know more come BlizzCon at the beginning of November.


WarCraft Overwatch skins are now available

The Halloween Terror update also brought a load of new skins into Overwatch, but along with the spooky seasonal skins, Blizzard also made the BlizzCon exclusive Night Elf skins for Genji and Symmetra available.

Players who've purchased a BlizzCon 2019 Virtual Ticket should have the Illidan Genji skin and Tyrande Symmetra unlocked in the hero gallery following October 15.

The new WarCraft 3 sprays are available now for anyone who's already pre-ordered the Spoils of War edition and should be unlocked immediately for anyone who decides to pick it up.

WarCraft 3 Reforged news is just the tip of the iceberg for what we could see at BlizzCon this year - which could have some big Overwatch news in-store as well.
