Overwatch Anniversary Remix Vol. 3 is now live!


Cheers to six years of worldwide payload-pushing, high-intensity battlefield brawls, and a fight for the future that’s just beginning. To celebrate the final installment of this three-part event series, we’re unlocking the skin vault and bringing back even more gear you might have missed out on–with an exclusive twist. Flex on your foes in style with limited looks like Tagged Tracer, Varsity D.Va, Genjiman Genji, and more.


Earn and purchase Anniversary Loot Boxes throughout the event! Each Loot Box has a chance to contain items from past Anniversary and seasonal events; don’t wait too long to snag those skins you’ve been eyeing for the past year, though–Loot Boxes will no longer be available for sale after the end of the Anniversary Remix Vol. 3 event on August 30. However, you will still be able to earn standard loot boxes after the end of the event.*

*Loot Boxes will open automatically before the launch of Overwatch 2. After September 14, 2022, all remaining unopened Loot Boxes will automatically open upon login and all items contained within will be added to your account.


As part of the celebration, we’re unlocking season-exclusive brawls, giving you the chance to dive back into your favorite modes from previous seasonal events. Want to know what days your favorite brawls will be back? Check out the schedule below (regional times may vary).

  • Mei’s Snowball Offensive
    • Team up to ice over your enemies! In this 6v6 brawl, everyone plays as Mei, and her endothermic blaster has been modified to fire a single, super-powered snowball. Taking down an enemy only requires one hit, but a miss can be costly!

  • Bounty Hunter
    • Rack up points as you claim bounties in this rowdy brawl. The player who gets the first kill of the match becomes a Target, and everyone else a Bounty Hunter. Earn extra points by killing the Target, but beware—if you land the killing blow on a Target, you become the next one.
