Unlock additional rewards by watching Twitch streamers to get even more Ashe-themed cosmetics. Tune in to any Twitch streamer while they’re playing Overwatch now through July 5 to earn six Ashe’s Deadlock Challenge sprays!

Watch any Overwatch channel on Twitch between June 22 – July 5 for two hours to earn one Ashe’s Deadlock Challenge spray, two more hours to earn two additional sprays, and two final hours to earn three additional sprays, totaling to six sprays. All channels streaming in the Twitch Overwatch game category will be eligible to provide Drops.

Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is the first time Overwatch will be utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:

  • You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop.
  • You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.
  • You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards the second and will need to claim the second Twitch Drop before you can earn progress towards the third.
  • Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a account has not been linked.

It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in-game after claiming. To be eligible for rewards, you must first link your account to your Twitch account. Visit the Twitch Connections page to log in and complete the link now.

Each Ashe Deadlock Challenge sprays by watching Overwatch on Twitch during the event.

Deadlock Rebels by Lyndsay Ely

Overwatch Deadlock Rebels. Now Available.

In the years after the Omnic Crisis, the American Southwest is ruled by vultures looking to profit off the chaos. The West is ripe for the taking, and Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe intends to write her name across it. When Ashe is arrested yet again, this time on the morning of her high school graduation, her aloof, old-money parents decide to disinherit her from the family fortune. To steal back what’s rightfully hers, Ashe teams up with her omnic butler, B.O.B., and local ruffian Jesse McCree for a series of heists, catapulting the trio into a game of fast money and dangerous alliances.
