Overwatch has kicked off a brand new mini-event, this time focused on Mercy that gives players the chance to unlock a brand new skin for a limited time.

A new short story titled “Valkyrie” focused on Mercy came out on November 11 and as with past challenge events, it was a preview for an event focused on Dr. Ziegler.

The story focused on Mercy meeting up with Soldier and Ana in Egypt, where she’s working as a doctor in an aid camp.

She takes a bit of convincing but eventually joins her old Overwatch teammates to get the band back together before the events of the Zero Hour short from BlizzCon 2019.

Mercy’s Recall Challenge follows the latest Overwatch short story.

How do we unlock the new Mercy skin?

Like other Overwatch mini-events, players unlock all the cosmetics and the new Mercy skin by winning a set number of games during the event from November 12 to December 2.

Winning three games will get you a Mercy player icon, six wins unlocks two sprays from the short story and finally, the Dr. Ziegler skin takes nine wins to acquire.

Players only need nine wins to unlock the Dr. Ziegler skin.

Along with the in-game challenges, Mercy die-hard fans can earn extra sprays by watching participating Overwatch streamers on Twitch.

How do we get the Twitch rewards?

There are a total of six additional Mercy sprays available for players who have their Twitch and Blizzard accounts linked.

Unlike past events that had players tune in to certain streamers to unlock the rewards, now simply watching any channel streaming Overwatch on Twitch will qualify for the rewards this time around.

Watching any Twitch channel streaming Overwatch will count towards Mercy’s Recall rewards.

All of the cosmetic rewards are only available until December 2, which is a good chunk of time for players to knock out nine games and unlock the limited-time Dr. Ziegler Mercy skin.

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.

Overwatch Lijang Tower Night market spot ( IDK if this spot was shown before) from Overwatch

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.
