One of the biggest downgrades in Overwatch 2 is the absolute lack of free cosmetics. Sure, you might pick up a spray or a voice here and there, but skins are rare. But for a limited time, you can pick up a cosmetic for your favorite eternally suffering DPS. Here’s how to get the Overwatch Contenders Reaper skin in Overwatch 2.
How to Get the Overwatch Contenders Reaper Skin in Overwatch 2
It’s Spring, and you know what that means! Overwatch Contenders is springing back into action! And just like before, you can get some rewards for tuning in and cheering on your favorite teams.
Chief among the potential rewards for spectators is the Reaper Overwatch Contenders skin, which showcases the eternally grim Reaper (ba-dum-tss) in the Overwatch Contender colors of steel-grey, kelly green, and eggshell white.
Here’s how to get involved.
From April 12 to May 10, 4:00 AM EDT, head over to Twitch and view any participating live channel. To find a participating live channel, search “Path to Pro Spring Season” or “Overwatch Contenders”. You’ll likely see “!drops” in the name of participating channels.

To get the Reaper cosmetic, you’ll need to first connect your Twitch account to your Blizzard account. Otherwise, you won’t be able to claim any drops. Once that’s done, you’ll need to watch for four hours across all participating streams to get the Contenders Reaper reward.
Once you’ve watched four hours, go to the Drops Inventory menu in Twitch to claim your cosmetic. And it’s as easy as that! Free skins don’t come often, and Reaper looks dressed to kill in this limited edition cosmetic.
