Baptiste Reunion Challenge - All You Need to Know
Yesterday, Blizzard released a mini-event called “Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge,” adding event-exclusive skins, icons, and sprays all relating to Overwatch’s newest character. The event comes with a brand-new Overwatch short story that examines Baptiste’s background in detail.
Combat Medic Skin
First off, it’s pretty easy to unlock the exclusive skin and sprays for Baptiste in this limited-time event. All players have to do is win a certain number of games in Quick Play, Competitive Queue, or Arcade in order to unlock an exclusive player icon (3 total wins), two new sprays (6 total wins), and the epic skin for Baptiste (9 total wins). Nine total wins is nothing for players who play every day, so don’t be surprised if your queue times are short in all modes. Everyone is going to want this skin!
Overwatch Twitch Drops are Back!
Just like they did last year, Blizzard had brought back Twitch Drops to Overwatch. By watching certain streamers during the event, players will be able to ear. A total of seven new sprays are available, all revolving around Baptiste. Earning these are pretty easy as all players will have to do is link their Blizzard account to their Twitch and watch participating streams for two, four, and six total hours by the end of the event. Check out the sprays below. Additionally, here’s the schedule for streams to watch during the event to be eligible for drops.
