The Overwatch Summer Games Week 3 challenges will soon be live, giving players a chance to earn the Nihon Hanzo skin.

Weekly challenges are an exciting way for players to earn free skins during Overwatch events. As standard procedures go during limited time events in Overwatch, players will need to complete three stages of challenges within seven days to unlock some free cosmetic rewards well worth their efforts.

From Aug. 3 to Aug. 10, players will have the opportunity to grab the third of three epic skins when the event's final set of weekly challenges becomes active. Whereas last year's iteration of the Summer Games required players to win games, 2021's return simply invites players to play matches.

  • Play 9 Games: earn the Nihon Hanzo Player Icon
  • Play 18 Games: earn the Nihon Hanzo Spray
  • Play 27 Games: earn the Nihon Hanzo Epic Skin

The matches can be played in Quick Play, Competitive Play, or the Arcade to be eligible for these challenges. Players should still look to be victorious, however, as wins count as two games.

Players might opt into playing some Lúcioball during Summer Games considering it's the event's featured mode.

Ocean King Winston and Sunset Pharah are the other two reward skins up for grabs in weekly challenges during this year's event.

Once the 2021 Overwatch Summer Games come to an end on Aug. 10, the skins will no longer be available through challenges.
