5 Worst Overwatch Skins of 2019
Overwatch sees an incredible volume of skins arrive in-game each event, let alone each year. The standard of quality for these skins is impressive, but not every skin can be a winner. Here are the five worst Overwatch skins from 2019 so far.
5. Pharaoh Ana
Pharaoh Ana is the least impressive of the Halloween Terror 2019 crop. While the gold accents on Ana's gun and armor are wonderful touches, the skin's overall effect is more mummy than mummified pharaoh.
4. Lúcioball Wrecking Ball
Lúcioball Wrecking Ball is a cute idea, but perhaps exceedingly cute. At the end of the day, the skin is a visually uninteresting re-color of the standard Hammond outfit. Not bad, but not great.
3. Riot Police Brigitte
This skin has taken on a sinister connotation in the wake of Blizzard's decisions surrounding the Blitzchung incident. Although its connection to riot police has never been particularly pleasant, the skin now calls to mind the brutal counter-protestor police work taking place in Hong Kong. Bad look.
2. Scientist Moira
Was there a single Overwatch player who felt like Moira's original outfit wasn't science-y enough? This skin just feels redundant — not a satisfying dig into lore, neither a satisfying visual reinvention. One of the rare full misses in Overwatch's cosmetics.
1. Deadlock McCree
Glimpses into the halcyon past of the Overwatch cast are always fun, but this skin manages to look so bad it's actually worth returning to sender. Someone desperately needs to tell McCree to buy a new jacket, because the one sleeve thing is extremely not working. This skin is for people who like cowboys — also true of McCree's base skin — but specifically ones with no sense of style. Hard pass.
