Overwatch Lunar New Year went live Thursday, and Imperial Guard Reaper is among the many skins revealed for the event. This Epic-rarity skin can be unlocked by completing challenges in the same vein as Overwatch's previous event-based challenge skins. Here's how to add the skin to your collection.

How to Unlock Imperial Guard Reaper

As in previous Overwatch events, there are three weekly challenges for players to complete. Those challenges are split into three stages of completion, with each stage unlocking new cosmetics.

To complete each challenge you'll need to win nine games per week in any game mode. You'll unlock cosmetics at three wins, six wins and nine wins. The first six wins will unlock player icons and sprays. The final win will unlock the Epic skin for that week.

Imperial Guard Reaper will be available in the third week of Lunar New Year 2021, making it the final skin to arrive in the event.
