Overwatch League Skins
The Home & Away skins have been around for a few years now, but since every hero got a slightly reworked look in Overwatch 2, they should look a bit different this year. In this season, you can unlock the skin for every hero in the roster, even our newcomers Kirko, Sojourn and Junker Queen.
How To Get Rewards
Every three hours of watching the Overwatch League, you can unlock new collectibles and skins. The first thing you should do is download the Overwatch League app on your phone. This app helps you to keep track of all the matches and also rewards you with gifts for watching the Overwatch League. If you also watch the grand finale on Friday, November 4 at 7 PM PDT, you will be able to unlock a skin for Sojourn after one hour and skins for Kiriko and Junker Queen after 2 hours.
Make sure to connect the app with the right Battle.net account to assure that all your rewards, get transferred correctly. If you have linked your account and have everything set up, all you have to do is watch the playoff livestreams, by clicking on "Watch on YouTube" in the Overwatch League app.
Every 3 hours you can collect your rewards by clicking on a little gift icon in the corner. The perks are available throughout the entire week of Playoffs and Grand Finals, from October 30 – November 4, 2022.
