With the start of the Overwatch 2 Halloween Terror, fans have been looking forward to getting their hands on some spooky cosmetics. But their price points have been the scariest shock of them all.
Yesterday, Blizzard kicked off the Halloween Terror event in Overwatch 2. From Oct. 25 until Nov. 8, players can complete challenges to unlock special rewards such as the Nightfall Over Adlersbrunn Name Card, the Jack-o'-Lantern Weapon Charm, Battle Pass XP, and more. Players are also able to purchase seasonal cosmetics, but Kiriko's cosmetic bundle has generated some negative attention.
This particular costs 2600 credits, putting it at roughly $26. It includes a witch-themed skin for new Hero Kiriko, giving her a witch hat and matching outfit. This particular skin can only be purchased as part of the bundle, making it impossible to obtain without dropping $26.
Fans have taken to social media to express their disappointment with the cost. Of course, premium price tags for cosmetics is nothing new. Riot Games' Valorant frequently drops new cosmetics that sit around the $20 price mark. Other free-to-play titles such as Fortnite and Warzone also make a pretty profit off the backs of optional premium cosmetics.
The Witch Kiriko Bundle consists of the following items:
- Witch skin
- Black Cat weapon charm
- Clean Sweep highlight intro
- Witch player icon
- Celestial name card
The Overwatch 2 Halloween Terror event also offers fans the chance to nab a Werewolf Winston skin, via Twitch Drops. Be sure to check out our guide to grabbing the legendary skin for free.
