Overwatch seems to pretty much always have a new event either ongoing or around the corner, and we now have a new Overwatch Archives event! These are cooperative missions that pit you and your team against waves of enemies for a chance at some new, spicy gear!

The skins that you can unlock with this event range from some pretty awesome ones to rather bland ones. In particular, there’s one for Hanzo that just looks like… Hanzo. I don’t know if there was some small change to it or if it was a special color but it looked pretty close to the default skin for the character.

I think the general consensus from players, or what I can gather from the community, is that people wish that the event would just be on all the time. Something that was always there, but added a new mode or event every few months for players that maybe don’t care as much about the competitive scene. I will say that I, myself prefer a cooperative shooter to a competitive PvP one, so I agree with this sentiment. Check out the trailer above as well as a Developer Update!
