One Overwatch fan and artist has started Spooky Season off right with a couple of awesome skin ideas for Mercy and D.Va, the latter of which still doesn’t have a Halloween Terror skin more than four years after release.

It’s that time of year again: the air is getting chilly, leaves are changing, and Overwatch fans are fretting over which heroes will be getting new cosmetics for the Halloween Terror 2020 event.

Halloween Terror is definitely one of the most popular seasonal events each year, giving players the chance to unlock some of the best hero skins ever made, and yes, we are talking about Witch Mercy.

Overwatch fan and D.Va/Mercy fanatic u/ohniart decided to take the usual speculation one step further, and come up with their own Halloween skin designs for the characters.

Mercy already has what many consider to be the best seasonal skin of them all – Witch Mercy – in her arsenal, but we have to admit Ohni’s design wouldn’t be too bad of an addition either.

Giving her giant horns, a tail that looks like a spinal column and an abundance of skulls makes the healer almost as edgy as Reaper himself (almost). She has enough skins as it is, but this would definitely be a great addition to her lineup.

Next up is D.Va, who has been transformed into an adorably evil sister of the cloth with the “Possessed Nun D.Va” skin. Straight up, this would be an amazing treat for the hero who has yet to see her own Halloween skin after more than four years, and hopefully her MEKA looks just as cool.

Hopefully when D.Va finally gets a Halloween skin it looks as good as this.

D.Va did just get an amazing new skin for the 2020 OWL All-Stars event, but hopefully, that isn’t just a cop-out so devs have an excuse for not giving us a Halloween skin for her this year.

Whatever happens, new D.Va skin or not, Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event usually gets going in the first or second week of October each year, so be sure to stick with Dexerto for all the latest spooky OW news, updates and leaks as they happen.

Among Us

Popular YouTuber Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop pulled off a clever name change technique in Among Us, baiting fellow streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys into revealing herself as an imposter with this hilarious trick.

Among Us has blown up on streaming platforms like Twitch and YouTube in recent months, as many of the biggest creators in gaming have now tried their hand at the popular party title.

While Among Us started out as a fun game to play with friends, players are now starting to find unique tricks that can give them an advantage over their opponents and YouTube star CouRageJD revealed one example of this in a recent broadcast.

Among Us has become one of the most viewed games in recent months.

The role of an impostor can be a difficult one to pilot in Among Us, as players are required to eliminate as many crewmates as possible and sabotage the ship, all while remaining undetected.

While there are plenty of tools and strategies to counter the imposters, such as using the cameras or grouping up when completing tasks, a new strategy that involves changing your in-game name has been revealed, making it even harder to back-stab your friends.

Courage shared a clip of this tactic, revealing that his plan was to use his shortened name to his advantage, by blending in with the satellite tower he was standing behind.

“Changed my name on Among Us to just the letter ‘I’,” he explained, highlighting how difficult it was to spot him, and with Lazarbeam as his bait, he simply waited for an impostor to make their move.

Unfortunately for Pokimane, she fell right for this trap, attacking Lazarbeam after it appeared to be safe and revealing herself as the impostor in the match.

Courage instantly popped out of where he was hiding, reporting her actions, and could not help but burst into laughter as he was accusing Pokimane to win the match for his remaining crewmates.

While hilarious Among Us tricks such as this one will eventually become well known and won’t be as effective, they can still be worth trying to turn the tides in a match.
