Overwatch Unveils new Reinhardt skin
On October 11, Blizzard revealed a new Reinhardt skin called Draugr. It is an undead creature from the Scandinavian saga literature and folktale.
Draugar live in their graves or royal palaces, often guarding treasure buried with them in their burial mound. They are revenants, or animated corpses with a corporeal body, rather than ghosts which possess intangible spiritual bodies.
Reinhardt will now have a round shield with arrows and a massive axe with blue lighting instead of a hammer. His face is bright with glowing blue eyes.
However, the event skins are only available during the event itself. So, it’s likely that this skin as well won’t be available after the event ends.
If it does end up being a Legendary skin, Draugr Reinhardt will be available to be unlocked in Halloween loot boxes or for 3,000 coins, as per Dexerto.
The Halloween Terror event will also offer rewards to the participating gamers. If you play 9 games, you get an Icon. If it’s 18, you get a Spray and if you play 27 games you’ll receive a Epic skin. The rewards will only unlock after playing 8 games.
The 2021 Overwatch Halloween Terror will start on October 12 and run through November 2.
