Halloween Terror returns for a third year, having been one of the first in-game events to join the Overwatch calendar.

As with all in-game events, one of the highlights is the new skins being added. The Halloween Terror event has a reputation for being particularly popular in this department, and this year’s edition doesn’t disappoint.

The following new skins have been added with this year’s Halloween Terror:

  • Undead McCree
  • Spider Widowmaker
  • Jack-o-Lantern Wrecking Ball
  • Enchanted Armor Pharah
  • Swamp Monster Doomfist
  • Banshee Moira
  • Bride Sombra
  • Pumpkin Mei
  • Slasher: 76

In addition to the brand-new skins, previous Halloween Terror skins will also be purchasable once again with tokens, for those players that weren’t able to collect them during previous iterations of the event.


The Halloween Terror event also brings the return of Junkenstein’s Revenge, a PvE Brawl that sets teams of four players against a series of bosses. The mode has four difficulty settings – Normal, Hard, Expert, and Legendary – and also an extended mode called “Endless Night”, in which players must fend off waves of increasing difficulty.

This year’s version of the Brawl also introduces Brigitte and Tracer as playable characters, joining the original quartet of McCree, Soldier: 76, Hanzo, and Ana, along with 2017 additions Torbjörn, Zenyatta, Genji, and Widowmaker.

Finally, Halloween Terror will offer players the chance to explore “Spooky” versions of three maps: Eichenwalde, Château Guillard, and Hollywood.
