There’s nothing that says thriving competitive game quite like a branded skin collaboration, and the Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man crossover is the first such collaboration in Overwatch’s history. Until April 6, 2023, fans of One Punch Man can experience the wonder that is Saitama Doomfist, Genos Genji, Terrible Tornado Kiriko, and Mumen Rider Soldier 76 through the magic of skins. In addition to the character skins, several other crossover cosmetics including weapon charms, emotes and voice lines are also available, with some being pay-to-unlock while others can be acquired by playing the game. Read on to learn how to unlock each skin and collectible!
Shop Exclusives – Saitama Doomfist, Genos Genji, Terrible Tornado Kiriko
The three headliner skins in this collaboration are shop exclusives, meaning that players have to pay for them using Overwatch 2‘s premium currency. Each skin can be purchased as part of a skin and items set, or as part of the all-in bundle. If you’re interested in getting all the skins then the all-in-bundle is technically the most valuable, but if you only care about one or two of them then you’re better off getting them separately.
Here is the full pricing breakdown:
- Saitama item combo: 2,500 Coins
- Genos item combo: 1,900 Coins
- Terrible Tornado combo: 2,100 Coins
- One Punch Man all-in bundle: 4,400 Coins
The all-in bundle comes with 10 total cosmetics, broken up into three skins, one emote, one victory pose, one voice line, one highlight intro, and three name cards. It’s worth noting that the item pack combos aren’t created equally, with the Saitama Doomfist combo featuring five cosmetics, the Terrible Tornado Kiriko combo featuring three, and the Genos Genji combo featuring two. It’s also worth noting that 2,200 coins currently costs $19.99 to purchase, which makes the cost of the all in-bundle around $40.
Event Challenge Rewards – Mumen Rider Soldier 76, Other Cosmetics
But what about the free-to-play Overwatch 2 users? Thankfully, those players are not completely left out of the Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man fun. Gamers can earn the Mumen Rider Soldier 76 without spending any currency, as long as they play 24 games. While 24 games may seem like a lot, each win counts for two games so players can technically unlock the skin within the span of 12 matches. In addition, there are five other cosmetics that can be earned by playing in four, six, twelve, sixteen and twenty games, respectively.
- 4 games played – Saitama’s Fist Weapon Charm
- 8 games played – Mumen Rider Name Card
- 12 games played – Cyclist of Justice Victory Pose for Soldier: 76
- 16 games played – Justice Crash Highlight Intro for Soldier: 76
- 20 games played – Boros Weapon Charm
- 24 games played – Legendary Mumen Rider-Soldier: 76 skin
The Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man crossover event runs until April 6, 2023 and there has been no indication as to whether or not these skins will be made available past that. That being said, if other live service games like Fortnite are any indication then we will probably see these skins pop-up again at some point in the coming months and years.
