Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bepop: Skins, Rewards, Challenges

Guess who's back, back again. Overwatch 2 has shocked fans yet again with their second anime collaboration, this time with the iconic space-western Cowboy Bepop. This latest crossover for the hero shooter will bring tons of in-game cosmetics, emotes, and hero skins inspired by the beloved anime Cowboy Bepop. 

The stars of this collab are Cassidy, Ashe, Mauga, Wrecking Ball, and Sombra, as they all get a makeover -anime style- to celebrate this limited-time event. 

While this crossover event probably won’t include arcade game modes like the LE SSERAFIM or Loverwatch, it will feature fun gameplay challenges and cosmetic rewards that players can get for free. 

Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bepop will begin on March 12 and continue until the beginning of April. Here’s everything we know so far about the event, including how to get free unlockable cosmetics and bonus rewards. 


Overwatch Cowboy Bepop skins

In an epic reveal trailer, Blizzard Entertainment showcased the heroes getting the “Cowboy Bepop” treatment. 

These skins will likely be available from the in-game shop, purchased with Overwatch Coins, the premium in-game currency bought with real money. 

While the event has yet to launch, we can assume Blizzard will offer each skin as a separate bundle. We will update the section below when we have bundle prices and their contents.

Similar to the One Punch Man crossover event a year ago, it’s likely that many of the Cowboy Bepop-themed cosmetics will be unlocked through various gameplay challenges. This includes the Legendary Ein Wrecking Ball skin. 

Each challenge may reward players with a cosmetic, such as an in-game voiceline, emote, weapon charm, or player title. Winning games will also grant the player double progress towards challenge completion, alongside Season 9 Battle Pass XP. For example, wins may count as two games rather than one.
