Overwatch 2 players slam “underwhelming” Mythic Orisa skin coming in S8
The Season 8 Battle Pass for Overwatch 2 will introduce the Mythic Grand Beast Orisa skin, and players are already slamming its inclusion.
Overwatch 2 Season 8 is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, December 5 across all platforms. The seasonal update will most importantly add a new Tank hero to the mix – Mauga.
Another game mode – Clash – is also set to join the fun, alongside the brand-new Hanaoka map. While players patiently await the update, Blizzard has teased even more content for the Battle Pass offering.
Notably, a Mythic Orisa skin will become available to those who reach level 80 in the Battle Pass. Fans aren’t exactly thrilled about this particular addition, though.
Overwatch 2 players blast newly announced Mythic Orisa skin
Blizzard showcased a glimpse at Mythic Grand Beast Orisa in a post on Overwatch’s Twitter account. In the video accompanying the post, it’s revealed that the new skin will arrive alongside Season 8 on December 5.
In addition to the revised look, the skin will also come with new ability sound effects, an ultimate makeover, and a series of color and weapon options. Replies beneath the tweet suggest fans are less than impressed by the Orisa-centric news.
Several users responded by saying the skin looks a lot like Orisa’s previous designs. “It’s literally just these in a different font… this is underwhelming as hell,” wrote one person sharing two photos of Orisa in different color schemes.
A similar comment reads, “Looks cool but it’s basically just the beetle skin with a couple extra colors so like…why.” Another Overwatch 2 fan lamented, “Of all possibilities for her mythic we get a legendary look-alike.”
It seems few Overwatch 2 players have any interest in unlocking the Mythic Orisa skin. But it’s possible that minds will change once Season 8 debuts next week.
