As per Overwatch tradition, with every new event comes new cosmetic items, and the Overwatch Uprising event is no exception. Browse the archives with this time capsule of goodies from the earliest eras of Overwatch. Open an Uprising Loot Box today and unlock a piece of the past, such as Genji’s Blackwatch skin, Talon Widowmaker, Blackwatch McCree, Combat Medic Ziegler, Tracer’s Cadet Oxton skin, and more. Over 100 cosmetic items are available, but don’t wait too long—these Loot Boxes will be history (again) before you know it. Let's take a look at the new skins, highlight intros and emotes that came with the event.

Uprising Skins

All of the new skins are based on the Overwatch story that took place 7 years ago in King's Row where the heroes who received the skins are wearing the Overwatch uniform and armor before it was disbanded.

Epic Tier (750 currency)

Lieutenant Wilhelm

Null Sector Bastion

Legendary Tier (3000 currency)

Cadet Oxton

Combat Medic Ziegler

Chief Engineer Lindholm

Ironclad Torbjorn

Blackwatch Genji

Blackwatch McCree

Null Sector Orisa

Talon Widowmaker

Highlight Intro (750 currency)

D.Va- Selfie

Zenyatta- Perspective

Torbjorn- My Baby

Emotes (750 currency)

Hanzo- Training

All of these awesome cosmetics can be obtained by opening a Uprising Loot Box or by purchasing the items individually in the hero gallery by using the in-game currency. What are your favorite event cosmetics? Mine has to be Blackwatch McCree and Blackwatch Genji. Just look at Genji's skin as a whole and McCree's Blackwatch Peacekeeper Revolver, I'm sure both of these skins will be the crowd favorites.
