Overwatch: Reaper Mercy crossover proves it's never too early for Halloween

A creative Overwatch fan has merged life and death by combining skins from the game's deadliest hero Reaper and the life-giving healer Mercy, and the result gives players their next potential Halloween costume.

Reaper is one of the most iconic characters in the team-based shooter, as his death inspired character travels the shadows in wraith form to deliver devastating kills to his opposition.

One sadistically creative artist named ‘lionelthelion’ uploaded their mashup to DeviantArt, which combines Reaper’s ‘Soldier:24’ skin and Mercy’s 'Pink' charity skin - it’s terrifyingly adorable.


Combining Reyes and Mercy

Before he was known as Reaper, the character used to go by Gabriel Reyes, and was the commander for Overwatch’s Blackwatch unit before eventually turning villain once the organization had fallen apart. 

Using Reyes' skin, lionelthelion brought him back to life, as she combined him with Mercy’s iconic Pink outfit, which was released in 2018 to raise money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. 

In what is both terrifying and kind of cute, the ‘Pink Reaper’ skin shows the ruthless mercenary wearing the healer’s charity outfit, which comes with stylish metal armbands, and a tiara with ribbons to wear on his head. 

The flowing outfit tightly drapes over Reaper’s bulky body, making for both a hilarious sight, as the bringer of death strikes his ‘Toast’ victory pose, from the Winter Wonderland event.

This isn't the only freaky crossover

This isn’t the first time the talented Overwatch fan has blessed us with their sadistic creations. In July 2019 during the Summer Games Event, they uploaded a similar creation mashing up Reinhardt and Torbjorn.

Simply titled Reinhardt Surf 'n' Splash skin, she took Reinhardt’s model and combined it with Torbjorn’s wildly popular summer skin, which showed the massive tank horrifically sporting tight swim trunks.

Reaper has never looked more alive. Perhaps creative Overwatch fans would be willing to tackle this as a cosplay, or make it their Halloween costume this year.
