The Overwatch community has asked Blizzard to create firefighter skins to help raise money for the Australian wildfires. Both Junkrat and Roadhog hail from Australia, and it would be an easy theme to make one or both some type of firefighter.

Blizzard has done such a thing before when they created Pink Mercy to raise money for Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Blizzard helped raise $12 million and made mention this was a testing ground for future endeavors.

The Reddit post has more than 63,000 upvotes, and fans were quick to share their ideas. 0fThieves thought, "Junkrats ammo could be filled with water." Some believe Junkrat could shoot water balloons and Roadhog could use a Fireaxe instead of a hook.

The skin would have to be created rather quick so funds could immediately start making a difference. Maybe Blizzard could show what their plans are for a skin and give players a chance to pre-purchase the skin if they wanted to donate now.

Blizzard hasn't made a comment on the Reddit post or anything about the Australian wildfires, so this could all be pointless. But if Blizzard did decide to make a contribution by creating a skin, they have the community's support.
