A few of the Overwatch 2 Halloween skins teased in the trailer
The original Junkenstein’s Revenge co-op Brawl, featuring Junkrat as Dr. Junkenstein, will also return for a limited time. It’s unknown if there’s any special variant to 2022’s Junkenstein’s Revenge, but the 2017 version featured teams of four players facing waves of enemies.
The Junkenstein’s Revenge: Wrath of the Bride trailer also showed off special Halloween skins, including Kiriko’s witch skin, Bastion’s gravestone-themed RIP skin, D.Va’s fox spirit skin, and more.
Speaking of Bastion, both Bastion and Torbjorn are also set to return to Overwatch 2 on October 25. Activision Blizzard previously removed the two characters in order to fix bugs. Torbjorn was only ejected from competitive play, but available in Quick Play, while Bastion was fully exiled.
