Overwatch kicks off Winter Wonderland with an amazing Krampus skin

0

Junkrat is the MVP

The Winter Wonderland 2018 skins for Overwatch are mostly themed around winter sports. They're okay if you're into grounded designs, but I prefer the more out-there stuff. I wasn't really feeling them. There's one big exception, though, and that's Krampus Junkrat. I must have it before the event ends.

The best Overwatch skins heighten character traits, and I think that's absolutely true of this Krampus makeover. If Junkrat is annoying to die to, then Krampus Junkrat will be downright infuriating.

Other new legendary skins (which you can see in the gallery below) include Figure Skater Symmetra, Snowboarder Zarya, Biathalon Widowmaker, Snow Fox Lúcio, and Sugar Plum Fairy Mercy. As for epic skins, there's three more this year: Winter Ashe, Gift Wrap Bastion, and Festive Reinhardt.

Winter Wonderland 2018 is live in Overwatch as of today, and it'll run until January 2, 2019.
