Banshee Moira Halloween Skin

]Quote from Overwatch’s Twitter as: 

An ominous portent. 
Haunt down your enemies as BANSHEE MOIRA (Legendary)!

Moira the Irish support will receive a fitting Banshee Skin. A Banshee for the unaware is a mythological female spirit in Irish mythology that usually comes equipt with a heart-pounding shriek. This renowned shriek will be perfect for the Junkenstein’s revenge game mode which leads us to believe Banshee Moira will be Junkenstien’s bride!

Swamp Monster Doomfist Halloween Skin

Just keep swimming. 
Make a splash as SWAMP MONSTER DOOMFIST (Legendary)!

Doomfist was the first hero to have his Halloween skin revealed. Doomfist‘s Halloween Skin has been met with some resistance from the fan with many believing the skin should have been called Doomfish due to his large gills.

Undead McCree Halloween Skin

Quote from PlayStation‘s Twitter:

From High Noon to full moon… send shivers down foes’ spines as UNDEAD MCCREE! 

Gather your friends to outlast the night.

The epic Undead McCree skin transforms the cowboy into a haunting Skull shell of the McCree we‘re familiar with. Although the skin itself does not directly affect McCree’s original game model.

Spider Widowmaker Halloween Skin

I will haul them into my web. 

Take SPIDER WIDOWMAKER (Epic) for a spin next week!


Spider Widowmaker was the first non-legendary skin to be announced for the upcoming terror event. The skin looks similar to her original skin with some added creepy traits that really suit Windowmaker’s style.

Enchanted Armor Pharah Halloween Skin

Quote from Overwatch’s Twitter:

That’s the spirit.

BOO-P your enemies as ENCHANTED ARMOR PHARAH (Legendary)!

This will be Pharah’s second Halloween skin, however, the new Terror event skin will be legendary! With a headless horsemen vibe, this Halloween skin in our opinion looks deadly!

Jack-o-Lantern Wrecking Ball Halloween Skin

Jack-o-Lantern Wrecking Ball Overwatch Halloween Skin

Quote from Overwatch’s Twitter:

Now it’s time to get PUMPED up!

Squash your enemies as JACK-O’-LANTERN WRECKING BALL (Legendary)!

Jack-o-Lantern marks the first exclusive skin that Hammond the Wrecking Ball has received and boy are we glad it’s legendary. Turning his giant mech ball into a pumpkin chariot and Hammond into some demonic Scarecrow?

The Halloween Terror event will also bring back past cosmetics which will be available for you to purchase. The returning skins will cost you 1,000 credits, the new skins will set you back 3,000 credits.
