The Mirrorwatch event has officially started in Overwatch 2, transporting our favorite heroes into an alternate universe where they fight for opposing organizations.

On top of fighting with new abilities in the Mirrorwatch gamemode, you can also complete challenges to unlock Battlepass XP, weapon charms, a legendary Orisa skin, and more. If the twisted world of Mirrorwatch piques your interest, then check out the guide below to learn about everything the event has on offer.

How To Play Mirrorwatch

Overwatch 2: Mirrorwatch Event Guide

The main appeal of Mirrorwatch is the limited-time gamemode available in the Arcade until May 13th. In Mirrorwatch, you will get to pick between 12 characters that have had their visual appearances altered, and most importantly, their abilities are also reworked to match their new alignments.

Throughout the event, the Watchpoint Gibraltar map has also been changed to better match this alternate universe. Instead of the classic Overwatch logos found throughout the base, the entire map has been redecorated to match Talon's evil aesthetic.

How To Unlock The OR-UNIT Orisa Skin

Overwatch 2: Mirrorwatch Event Guide

To unlock the OR-UNIT Orisa skin, you will have to complete nine of the available event challenges before Mirrorwatch ends. Similar to other Overwatch 2 events, you do not have to complete challenges in any specific order, so you can select the nine that you find the easiest to complete to earn the skin quickly.

Once you complete nine challenges, the legendary Orisa skin will automatically be added to your inventory, and you can equip the skin in the Hero Selection tab.

Just because you have unlocked the Orisa skin does not mean that you have to stop completing challenges. Since there are 12 challenges added alongside this event, you will still have two more to complete if you want to earn all the rewards.
