Blizzard Entertainment have revealed a brand new selection of rewards for Week 3 of the Overwatch Summer Games 2019 and if you’re wondering how to get your hands on the new Reinhardt Bundesadler skin, you’ve came to the right place. 

The Summer Games will be taking place, you guessed it, right the way through the summer of 2019 as usual, with players being handed the opportunity to add a few more unlockable features to their Overwatch collection. 

With the first and second week of rewards already passed, fans of the tank hero Reinhardt can now celebrate the in-game event by landing themselves a cool new skin.

The game’s developers revealed a new list of rewards that can be unlocked between July 30 and August 5, with the fresh Reinhardt skin – of course – attracting most of the attention from the game’s online community. 

There are three rewards for players to get their hands on in Week 3, with a Sandcastle Spray, Footballmari Icon, and – of course – the new Reinhardt skin being made available. 

As shown in the video above it’s as easy as jumping into a few games of Overwatch and picking up victories, so be sure to grab the new items while you can before the window of opportunity slams shut at the start of next month.

Below you can find the full list of challenges and what you have to do in order to complete them.

  • Sandcastle Spray: Unlocked after winning three  matches in Overwatch
  • Footballmari Icon: Unlocked after winning six matches in Overwatch
  • New Reinhardt Bundesadler skin: Unlocked after winning nine matches in Overwatch

Reinhardt’s new Summer Games skin is the third to have been released so far by Blizzard, who have been announcing new outfits on a weekly basis during the event. Other cosmetics include an American Reaper Skin, from Week 1, as well as a Zhongguo Mei skin for Week 2. 

If you never managed to grab them in-game already, though, you may have unfortunately missed your chance. However, that doesn’t mean to say you can’t pick up an awesome Reinhardt attire instead!

Cute Brigitte skin concept is just what Overwatch needs this Christmas

Overwatch has always been renowned for producing some beautiful festive skins and as Christmas gets ever closer, another cute skin concept for Brigitte has surfaced. 

Brigitte has become one of Overwatch’s most divisive heroes. While written into the game as a support, her kit makes her easily able to flex between support and damage dealer, and her health bar reflects a tank’s more than it does that of a support.

Recent health bar buffs left players up in arms, and Blizzard responded a patch later with nerfs reverting her health bar back to how it was. Despite the controversy that surrounds Sweden’s young hero, her fans really do love her even if her haters often know how to shout louder.

One fan has shown their passion for the tank support by designing an adorable Christmas skin just in time for the festive season.

Brigitte may look adorable, but she’s a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

Christmas Skin Concept for Brigitte is truly heartwarming

One Reddit user shared their own concept for a future Christmas skin for the tank support, and has received a wave of praise.

The user in question, Annzey, unveiled her ‘Gingerbrig’ concept. They note that their friend, Murdered Sun, was the actual artist behind the drawing, but the concept wall all her own.

It features Brigitte wearing a gingerbread style outfit, with icing holding together her armour, a candy cane style mace and an adorable little gingerbread man forming the core of her iconic shield.

To top it off her hair is tied back using a little mistletoe, and her cheeks have a reddish hue from having been out too long in the cold. The attention to detail in the design is truly perfect; Annzey really has created a skin people would buy.

GINGERBRIG- Concept Art ❄️ So a while ago I had posted an idea for a Gingerbread Brigitte skin and I’ve been obsessed with the idea so I asked my friend if she could draw some concept art for me and WELLA! I present to you- GINGERBRIG! What do y’all think??? :))✨ from r/Overwatch

Overwatch fans react

The comments section of Annzey’s post is dominated by comments praising their design. One redditer writes that they “would pay 3k coins if this was added” despite not playing Brigitte.

Another claims that the art is ‘A-Mei-Zing!’, a beautiful play on words to describe an equally stunning concept.

So while Brigitte has just received a Halloween skin, it would be great if Blizzard pulled off something like Annzey’s work for the Holiday period. After all, all Overwatch fans want for Christmas are cute hero skins.
