Ashe's Mardi Gras Challenge hit Overwatch live servers Tuesday in Patch 1.45, offering players several new cosmetics to unlock.

The challenge, which runs until March 9, follows in the footsteps of previous challenges such as D.Va's Nano Cola challenge or the Baptiste Reunion challenge. It celebrates Mardi Gras by dangling two player icons, seven sprays and one skin in front of players.

As is typical with these challenges, players can earn the majority of rewards by winning matches of Overwatch in any game mode. At three wins, players will unlock two player icons. The first is Ashe's face, wearing a mask and purple top hat, in silhouette. The second is B.O.B. wearing a golden mask and a green hat.

At six wins, players will earn a spray that shows Ashe's Mardi Gras mask in gold. At nine wins, players unlock the Mardis Gras Ashe skin itself.

The rest of the rewards in the event can be earned by watching participating Twitch streams. Watching two hours will unlock a Wrecking Ball Mardi Gras spray. Watching four will unlock a spray showing Torbjörn and Brigitte stuffed full of pastries and a second spray showing Zenyatta wearing Mardi Gras colors.

Watching six hours will unlock sprays of McCree, Reaper and Lúcio.

All the channels streaming in the Twitch Overwatch game category will be available for rewards.

Overwatch Patch 1.45 also introduced Hero Pools to competitive play and the new Experimental play card.
