Overwatch skins that would be absolutely perfect in Among Us

An Overwatch fan has created a set of skins featuring the game’s heroes for one of the hottest games on Twitch, Among Us, and they look absolutely amazing.

Among Us from Innersloth is one of the fastest-growing games on Twitch partly due to all the backstabbing and conniving that goes on while your team is trying to find the imposter.

There are already a ton of special skins and hats you can put on your Among Us character, no matter what color you go with (…even though green is the best).

With the game’s rising popularity, it wasn’t bound to be long before we saw a crossover with other popular games and the Among Us Overwatch skins created by artist ‘_pocketchan’ on Twitter fit the bill to a T.

It doesn’t get any cuter than Among Us D.Va and her tiny little mech.

The Overwatch skin designs for Among Us are pretty simple, but that doesn’t take away from them at all since they fit perfectly with the game’s minimalist art theme.

D.Va looks absolutely adorable with her tiny little MEKA at her side, Reinhardt has a hilarious tiny Brigitte, and of course, Sigma is accompanied by his trusty rock.

Lucio, Reaper, and Soldier: 76 are the only sprites to have a different faceplate, with every other hero rocking the trademark Among Us space helmet seen on all the colors already (although Ana has added an eye patch to hers).

For some reason, Hanzo’s Among Us sprite looks absolutely hilarious.

Bastion presented an interesting problem to turn into an Among Us spaceman, so pocketchan simply took one of the base skins and added some bastion parts on top of it. Humorous and very effective.

We probably won’t see any wild, crossover skins arrive in the current build of the game, but with Among Us 2 expected to release sometime around August 2021, more cosmetic choices will most likely be arriving then.

With Among Us only growing and getting bigger on Twitch by the day, we’re sure to see more awesome and crazy ideas for cosmetics in the game, and these Overwatch skins are definitely some of the best so far.

FaZe Clan hosted its very own invitational Among Us tournament — smartly dubbed the “Among Us In-vent-ational” — in October, with top content creators, streamers and more getting in on the action.

Among Us has become the game of choice for many top creators, with a party-game atmosphere and a great way to find out who your real friends are and test your own poker face.

The announcement for the tournament was made on October 14, with the esports organization confirming it would take place on Monday, October 19.

In-Vent-Ational recap

Four separate lobbies filled to the brim with popular personalities battled it out during the event. Eventually, the best of the best moved on to the final showdown. This was where the most elite Among Us players showed their skills to the world. From extraordinary memory to map knowledge and of course, the ability to deceive everyone else, it all came in handy.

The likes of Ludwig, Classify, and Yassuo all made it through to the final round of action in the FaZe event. However, only one player could come away with the crown.

After a few maps of intense murder-sprees and subsequent investigations, it was up and coming Twitch streamer ‘Yetiapocalypse’ that closed out the victory. They soared to the top of the pack with a six-point lead over second place, well ahead of some of the bigger internet celebs in the lobby. The final placements can be found below.

FaZe Clan capitalized on the growing popularity of Among Us.

The tournament took place entirely on Monday, October 19, with the action having kicked off at 2pm PT (11am ET / 7pm BST). It lasted for roughly the full afternoon as each lobby battled it out for a few hours.

As each round went by, point totals were calculated before moving into the next map. This paved the way for unique strategies as players looked to knock out others at the top.
