How to get legendary loot boxes in Overwatch for the Overwatch Anniversary event is something fans are trying to find out. The Overwatch team was feeling kind on the game's fourth birthday and gave every player one special gift, a golden loot box. But for some players, one loot box just isn't enough.

Legendary loot boxes are rare and desirable because they guarantee at least one legendary item inside. Legendary items like skins normally appear in approximately one every 14 loot boxes. This makes them notoriously difficult to unlock.
