Overwatch Winter Wonderland: Yeti Hunt Brawl (December 12th – January 1st)

Overwatch Winter Wonderland brings us another Mei style Brawl but thankfully a bit more fastpaced that the Mei’s Snowball Offensive. This time it’s a 5v1 experience, pitting five MeiHunters” against one “YetiWinston. The Yeti must kill the Hunters five times to win; the Hunters must kill the Yeti once to claim victory. Yeti Winston has increased health and armor with the addition of Meat that will send him into crazy rage mode. Mei has her usual abilities, but her Ice Wall and Ice Block times are reduced making this a fairly challenging fight.

Winter Wonderland features more than 150 items, including a bunch of new skins like Ice Fisherman Roadhog and Snow Owl AnaBlizzard has given us an additional present with some Christmas discounts on skins. Legendary skins are from 2016 are 1000 credits, while Epic, Rare, and Common prices have been lowered to 250, 75, and 25 credits, respectively.
