Overwatch fans are always hungry for new content, and Blizzard Entertainment has a habit of adding new exciting content to their game through different updates. Since the game was released, they have released tons of new cosmetic items including skins for their characters. Most of these skins make their way to the game through different events that are hosted throughout the year. The latest event is the Lunar Year Event, and it has added some new skins to the game.
Whenever new skins are added to Overwatch, players are left confused with which one to purchase as all of them often look amazing. However, not everyone has the budget to purchase all of them, so they have to go with one or two skins. Today, we are going to talk about some of the best skins available in the Lunar Year Event to help you decide which one to buy.
Best Skins Available
The Lunar Year Event in Overwatch has always given players a chance to get their hand on some vibrant skins. Although there are seven new skins available in this year’s event, skins from previous events can also be purchased. In fact, the previous skins can be purchased at a discounted rate. So without any further adieu, here are some best skins from the previous Lunar Year Events that you can buy right now.
1- Luna Mei
The first skin that we would like to mention in our list is Luna Mei. The list would be incomplete without mentioning her considering she is the only character in Overwatch who has roots in China. Her Luna skin features a red theme that perfectly fits the event’s theme. In addition to this, there is another skin available for her called Chang’e. However, Chang’e has a white and purple look so it doesn’t fit the event’s theme.
2- Fortune Mercy
The second skin in our list is Fortune Mercy. Blizzard has a habit of introducing some amazing Epic skins through Lunar Year Events, and this one is another master piece. In fact, it is the only Epic skin on our list. For those who don’t know, this Mercy skin is from the first Lunar Year Event. Because of its color, this skin works perfectly with gold weapons.
3- Lu Bu Reaper
The third skin in our list is Lu Bu Reaper. For those who don’t know, some of the skins featured in the event are based on East Asian mythology and lore. And this skin is a perfect example of it. The Lu Bu places Reaper in a spiked armor.
4- Black Lily Widowmaker
The fourth and final skin in our list is Black Lily Widowmaker. This skin is really amazing considering it gives Widowmaker a floral black dress. The skin also makes changes to the weapon of the character, something which many players will love.
These were some of the best skins available in this year’s Lunar Year Event. Make sure to grab then before they are gone on February 5. If you’re lucky enough, you might even find these skins in Lunar New Year loot boxes.
