Overwatch Retribution Challenge Missions will go live during Week 2, giving players an opportunity to increase the difficulty of the mission. Blizzard has decided to forego a new Archives mission or cinematic, and has instead given players the chance at playing the previous three missions with the ability to change things up.

Overwatch fans will also have the chance at earning free cosmetics with weekly challenges with a focus on specific champion. Week 1 will reward Symmetra cosmetics while Week 2 and Week 3 will see Torbjorn and Mei cosmetics respectively.

Week 2 Challenge Missions will start in six days. The first challenge called Surgical Strike only allows critical hits to do damage, so aim for the head. The second challenge is a bit more aggressive. Close Quarters keeps enemies alive unless a player is nearby, limiting long range engagements.

It seems players can play Overwatch Retribution, but will not be able to activate the Challenge Missions until Week 2.
