Overwatch Lunar New Year Event 2021

It is time for the new event in Overwatch as Lunar New Year is approaching and it means that year of the Ox is coming to all the games. If you are in the festive mood already you can read our post to learn when Overwatch Lunar New Year Event 2021 starts.

What’s to expect from Overwatch Lunar New Year Event 2021?

As any other event in Overwatch Lunar New Year presents new skins and game modes as well as new loot boxes. In addition, you will be able to get last years Lunar Skins that were available only through completing weekly challenges. Those are:

  • Monk Doomfist Skin
  • Ancient Bronze Winston Skin
  • Paper Cutting Wrecking Ball Skin

The special game mode for this year might be the return of Capture the flag and Capture the flag Blitz. The main goal in these matches is to get your opponents flag and bring it to your base without being stopped by enemy team.

Bounty Hunter New Game mode

In this new addition to the Arcade rotation, rack up points as you claim bounties. The player who gets the first kill of the match becomes a Target, and everyone else a Bounty Hunter. Earn extra points by killing the Target, but bewareβ€”if you land the killing blow on a Target, you become the next one.
