Overwatch player comes up with intriguing idea for skin customization

More hero customization options are something Overwatch players have been asking for almost since the game was released, and one player has come up with a solution that seems pretty doable.

The concept, which allows players to customize different parts of a hero, was posted to the Overwatch subreddit by user redeye998, who said that since most players focus on two or three heroes, spending in-game competitive points and credits on one hero to customize them would appeal to most players.

“Also, there are people who have already unlocked everything, so an on-going customization option should be a big refresh to everyone,” they added in the post.

The user also suggested adding sprays in the customization could work as well: “I also thought it would be a fun idea to be able to add a spray somewhere on the skin. Most people don’t even care about sprays, so this would also give some life to them.”

Only original skins would be able to be customized in this way, for the same reason the Overwatch League skins are, so players would still be able to tell which hero is which.


This concept would be unlocked with competitive points, the same used to purchase golden guns, which would give players another thing to work towards, Redeye998 claimed.

It’s an interesting concept, but the Overwatch team has stayed away from really in-depth customization before, so players will probably have to wait a while for anything like this to be announced.

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
