The Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2021 Week 2 challenges will soon be live, giving players a chance to earn the Mistletoe Symmetra 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 Dec. 23 to Dec. 30, players will have the opportunity to grab the second of three epic skins when the event's second set of weekly challenges becomes active. Whereas last year's iteration of the Winter Wonderland event required players to win games, 2021's return simply invites players to play matches.

  • Play 9 Games: earn the Mistletoe Symmetra Player Icon
  • Play 18 Games: earn the Mistletoe Symmetra Spray
  • Play 27 Games: earn the Mistletoe Symmetra 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 want to opt into playing some Freezethaw Elimination, Mei's Snowball Offensive, Snowball Deathmatch and Yeti Hunter considering they're the event's featured limited-time modes.

Wooltide Tracer and Peppermint Bark Brigitte are the other two reward skins up for grabs in weekly challenges during this year's event.

Once the Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2021 event comes to an end on Jan. 6, the skins will no longer be available through challenges.
