Blizzard has announced the schedule for Overwatch Brawls during the Anniversary in-game event.

The Anniversary event, which runs until June 11th will see Brawls from previous events cycled in the Arcade throughout.

As well as introducing new content, the Anniversary event is celebrating two years since the release of Overwatch by revisiting much of the content that has been added to the game over that period.

The content added by in-game events is usually only available within the event itself. New skins remain unlocked for those that received them, but if you miss out during the event you have to wait until the next iteration. Likewise with unique gameplay elements such as event-themed Brawls, which can only be played during the event.

During the Anniversary event, all previous event skins will once again be available, both in Anniversary loot boxes and for purchase with in-game credits. Meanwhile, previous event Brawls will be available in the arcade, cycling through each on a daily basis.

Blizzard has released a schedule for the Brawls in the first week of the event:

In addition to the old content, Overwatch Anniversary also introduced a brand-new Deathmatch map, Petra, and a ranked competitive queue for Deathmatch, along with its own new set of skins.

How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Step by step for best turret placement in JR from Overwatch

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
