Overwatch Summer Games 2020 is coming soon as fans ready for the annual event. Every Overwatch event brings new skins for different heroes, but it is hard to know who will get one or what it might look like.

Currently, many heroes have skins based on their home country flags, but there are very large gaps in where they are from. There are six different European flags, two North American flags, one South American flag, and two Asian flags. There are exactly zero flags from the continent of Africa so Ana, Orisa, Doomfist or Pharah should really receive one this year.

Overwatch Summer Games 2020: 5 Heroes Who Should Get Skins

1. Echo

Echo is the newest hero to Overwatch and she has still not received an event skin. This event could bring her very first event skin regardless of theme or rarity.

2. Baptiste

Baptiste is from the tropics so a fun water or beach themed Summer Games skin would make perfect sense for the hero. He could become the latest in the line of water gun skins like Torbjorn's or just a simple summery skin like Cabana Ana.

3. Sigma

Sigma has not gotten a new legendary is a long time.

Sigma has one event skin from Winter Wonderland so a Summer Games skin would be a good match. All of his skins have very dark colors so a skin based off the colors of the Netherlands flag or a colorful water themed skin would make his skins more diverse.

4. Doomfist

Doomfist has no Summer Games skins, emotes, or highlight intros.

Doomfist is an excellent candidate for the next water themed skin. All of his skins are very serious and it would be interesting to see Blizzard change that streak.

5. Orisa

Orisa also has no Summer Games skins and was left out of the last few events.

Orisa already has an interesting Goalkeeper highlight intro, so it would make sense to give her a sporty skin to match. None of the omnics in Overwatch have skins based on their home country flags so Orisa is a good choice to break that record.
