It could be debated that the best thing about Overwatch is that it is host to a full range of unique and recognisable characters. As you play, you get to know them, observe them in use by other players, and build up detailed knowledge of each of them, what it takes to control them and what it takes to defeat them. The game is kind enough to let you choose alternate skins, emotes and highlight intros to add a personal touch to them, so that you stand out from the rest.
Combine this with the ability to purchase Loot Boxes that randomly drop these cosmetic items, and with limited availability items that are only available for as long as the game's
Olympics Summer Games event, and you create a powerful incentive for some. Some, like our very own Earl Baker. Watch as he proceeds to open 50 loot boxes in pursuit of Tracer's legendary "Sprinter" skin. Enjoy!
