Overwatch 2 Season 8 introduced Weapon Skins, allowing you to further customize the look of your favorite Heroes. Now that Season 9 has added new skins to the mix, here’s everything to know about getting Weapon Skins in Overwatch 2 and a list of all the available skins in the game.

Like Fortnite, Valorant, and most of its other free-to-play competitors, Overwatch 2 constantly adds skins through the shop, events, and Battle Pass for players who want to stand out in lobbies.

In Season 8, Blizzard added another layer of cosmetics to their multiplayer title in the form of Weapon Skins. Although Hero skins already affect weapons, you can now unlock separate Weapon Skins for Heroes and create a wide range of new looks.

On that note, here’s how to get and equip Weapon Skins in Overwatch 2 and a list of all Hero Weapon skins.

How to get & equip Weapon Skins in OW2

You can get Weapon Skins in Overwatch 2 by purchasing them individually in the Item Shop for 1,200 Overwatch Coins, or you can purchase them all in a bundle for 2,900 OW Coins.

They can be equipped in the individual Hero pages inside the Hero Gallery, or the second tab down in a Hero’s loadout page.
