How Overwatch Anniversary Remix Vol. 3 skins: D.Va, Genji, more

The third and final installment of Overwatch’s Anniversary Remix events is here, and we’ve got all the info on what newly recolored — and returning exclusive — skins are available and how to unlock them for yourself.

For Anniversary Remix Vol. 3, there are a total of nine “new” skins that can be unlocked. They’re not all new, with six recolors of other Legendary skins and three being exclusive weekly challenge skins brought back for the event.

You can also unlock almost every skin from every Overwatch past event during this event (exclusive skins from mini-events and weekly challenges). But for this guide, we’ll start with the challenge skins and then move on to the recolors.

Week 1 – Tracer’s Comics Challenge

Tracer’s Comic Challenge originally took place in 2020.

The first weekly challenge gives us the chance to unlock Tracer’s Comic skin, which was previously available when the original mini-event took place in 2020.

This was to commemorate the release of Tracer’s comic book ‘London Calling’. Besides comic art on her arms and legs, it also has unique sound effects when you melee, and is certainly one of the more unique skins of the DPS.

To unlock it, players will need to play a total of 27 games from August 9-16, with wins counting as 2. In addition, you will also earn a unique player icon and spray:

  • 9 Games: Comic Book Player Icon
  • 18 games: Quote Me spray
  • 27 Games: Comic Book Tracer Skin (Epic)

Week 2 – Symmetra’s Restoration Challenge

Symmetra’s Marammat skin was originally introduced in 2020.

Next up for Week 2 is Symmetra’s Restoration Challenge, a repeat of the same event from 2020, just like Tracer’s.

This event was to commemorate the new short story “Stone by Stone” starring Sym and Zenyatta.

It’s well worth checking out and reading if you haven’t already, and for Symmetra nutrition, it’s well worth picking up the skin and other cosmetics as well. As with the other weekly challenges, from August 16 to 23 you will need to play a total of 27 games, with wins counting as two, to collect all the prizes:

  • 9 wins: Marammat player icon
  • 18 wins: Marammat spray
  • 27 wins: Marammat Symmetra skin (Epic)

Week 3 – Hanzo’s Kanezaka Challenge

Hanzo Kyogisha

Blizzard Entertainment

Hanzo’s Kyogisha Epic skin was introduced in 2021 with the Kanezaka map.

Finally, for the final week of the challenge, we have the chance to unlock Hanzo’s Kyogisha skin, starting with the release of the Kanezaka Deathmatch map in 2021.

Interestingly enough, until the Overwatch 2 betas brought us a ton of new maps, Kanezaka was the last official phase to be added to the original Overwatch in January 2021.

Hanzo’s mini-event was part of the release, and now we have a chance to unlock most of the cosmetics re-offered by, you guessed it, 27 games from August 23-30.

  • 9 wins: Pagoda player icon
  • 18 wins: Yokai spray
  • 27 wins: Kyogisha skin

Arctic Ops Baptism – 3000 Coins

Blizzard Entertainment

Arctic Ops is a recolor of Baptiste’s Spec Ops Legendary skin.

First up we have Baptiste’s new Arctic Ops skin, a remix of his legendary Spec Ops skin. As a Legendary, it’s available in Anniversary loot boxes, or for 3000 coins if you don’t want to test your luck.

A side note before we go any further: this will be the last event ever in Overwatch with loot boxes. Blizzard can choose to continue with seasonal events in Overwatch 2, but there will be no more loot boxes.

Varsity D.Va – 3000 Coins

Blizzard Entertainment

Varsity is a remix of D.Va’s Academy skin.

Varsity is the name of this skin Remix and it builds on one of D.Va’s most popular skins: Academy. It’s basically a color-negative version of that skin, except for Hana herself, who’s now rocking a black-and-white uniform with green hair.

As with the other Legendary skins, 3000 coins will unlock it instantly, or you can try your luck in an anniversary loot box.

Genjiman Genji – 3000 Coins

Blizzard Entertainment

Genjiman is a treat for fans of Ultraman or other Tokusatsu shows.

Genji’s new Genjiman skin is also a recolor, but one that adds a ton of life to an old skin, perhaps more than any other for this remix event.

The name is an obvious nod to Ultraman, and the design is very similar to a character from the Super Sentai series – the shows Power Rangers is based on and uses imagery for.

This flashy red outfit can be yours for 3000 coins, or found in loot boxes. Even if you don’t unlock it, you should definitely check out the Dragonblade in the Hero Gallery, trust us, you won’t regret it.

Mechatron Phara – 3000 coins

Blizzard Entertainment

Mechatron is arguably one of Pharah’s best looking skins to date.

Pharah’s inclusion in Remix Vol. 3 is based on her Mechaqueen skin and is called “Mechatron”. Like Genji, this could also be a pop culture reference to Megatron of the Transformers as both have purple colorways.

3000 coins will unlock it for you if you don’t want to try your luck in a loot box.

Proteus: 76 Soldier: 76 – 3000 Coins

Blizzard Entertainment

Proteus is kind of a mix between Soldier’s Cyborg: 76 skin and his Golden Epic look.

Proteus: 76 is Soldier’s Remix Vol. 3 skin, and is sort of a mix between two of its previous skins. Obviously Cyborg: 76 serves as a base, but the colorway seems to come straight from his Epic Golden skin.

Like the rest, 3000 coins will unlock this for you. You’d think Blizzard would give us a break as this is the last event we can use coins for, but alas, it apparently isn’t meant to be.

Tagged Tracer — 3000

Blizzard Entertainment

Tagged is based on Tracer’s Graffiti skin, if you couldn’t tell by looking at it already.

Finally, we have Tagged Tracer to round things up. It’s somewhat fitting that the Overwatch cover girl has two skins that can be seen in the last event the original game will ever see.

You know the drill at this point: 3000 coins unlocks this one for you if you don’t want to wait for a loot box.

So that’s it! All the “new” skins available in Overwatch Anniversary Remix Volume 3. For a full look at the patch notes, check out our story here.
