With the New Year right around the corner, players are wondering when the Overwatch Winter Event will end so they won't miss out on the exclusive winter-themed legendary skins.

The Overwatch Winter Event ends on Jan. 2. Before this time, players can still open Winter loot boxes in order to get the following legendary skins:

  • Jotunn Doomfist
  • Mountain Man McCree
  • Rat King Reaper
  • Rime Sigma

There are also special game modes that are active during the event, such as a Snowball Deathmatch consisting of a free-for-all deathmatch between eight Meis, a Snowball Offensive which is a Mei 6v6 team deathmatch, where her blaster only shoots a one-shot-kill snowball, and finally the Yeti Hunter game mode that sets five Meis against a powered up Yeti-Winston.

The first two weeks of challenges have already passed, with Week 1 giving the Ugly Sweater Soldier:76 skin and Week 2 giving the Holly Moira skin.

Before Jan. 2, players can still participate in the Week 3 challenge, which will unlock the Snow Angel Mercy, alongside the Snow Angel player icon and Winter Spell spray.
