With Overwatch 2’s Lunar New Year event just around the corner, we know that certain fans will be able to unlock a new Legendary skin for Moira. Here’s how to get the Mask Dancer skin via Twitch drops.

Ever since Overwatch 2 came into the picture, replacing the original game in the process, events have been handled in a unique way. Instead of delivering a wide variety of new skins in loot boxes as the first title did, many of the new cosmetics in Overwatch 2 are either locked into the store or exclusive to Twitch.

Just by watching along on the streaming platform, fans have been able to unlock a number of legendary cosmetics during the Winter Wonderland event, including the recent Sleighing D.Va Legendary skin.

Here’s how to unlock the legendary cosmetics for yourself in Overwatch 2.
