Overwatch has seen a number of skins and costumes over the years and they have evolved and become more ambitious. And, as Blizzard has put in more work when it comes to developing new skins, they have introduced a brand new category into Overwatch 2. These are the Overwatch 2 Mythic skins.
This brand new set of skins aims to provide even more customisation and choice over your favourite hero’s look. From visual design to skin colour each skin has a number of different interchangeable pieces that can be swapped out or added to the skin.
So, to see all the Overwatch 2 Mythic Skins that have been revealed so far, as well as the customisable layers for each of them and how Overwatch 2 Mythic Skins work, read below.
HOW OVERWATCH 2 MYTHIC SKINS WORK
Mythic Skins are the next rarity above Legendary skins in Overwatch 2. They are aimed at being the most exciting and sought-after cosmetics according to Blizzard, who told Game Informer that it takes them over a year to make one Mythic Skin. These Mythic skins have multiple different layers to them which can all be customised and altered to players’ own wishes.
And, thankfully you won’t have to fork out money to get them as they are top-tier rewards within the battle pass, which aim to show your time playing during a season.
Each character will have their own customisable attributes for their Mythic skins. After all, we don’t expect Bastion to be wielding a sword, or Tracer to be wearing a Japanese-inspired mask. But, this should help give each character their own unique identity and flair and make the Mythic skins more special for those that earn them.
We don’t yet know if additional customization options for these skins will be added as time goes on. But, with a new Mythic Skin arriving every season it seems like each one will have its own unique options relayed to the character it is for.
All the Overwatch 2 Mythic Skins
Below, you can find all the Overwatch 2 Mythic Skins that have been released into the game or are on their way:
Genji Cyber Demon
The Genji Cyber Demon Mythic Skin is available in the Season 1 battle pass at tier 80. This means you have to rank up the battle pass fully to unlock it. Within the Mythic Skin, you have the option to customise the colour of Genji, the mask he is wearing, the tattoos he has, and the weapon he holds separately.
This offers up a number of different cybernetic skins and designs for you to build to craft a top-tier Genji design. There are two different weapon designs, three Tattoo designs, three mask designs, and three colours. All of these designs can be seen in a tweet from ‘HoshizoraOW’.
With one of the Overwatch 2 Mythic skins in hand, you can begin crafting the best look for your favourite hero. But, if your own favourite hero or a hero that tops the Overwatch 2 tier list is still waiting for a Mythic Skin, you will have to hold out hope that next Season brings you a skin that was worth waiting for.
