How to Get the Reaper Pro Wrestler Skin

Here’s something you may not know about me, even if you’re a regular reader of my Forbes blog: I’ve been a fan of professional wrestling for most of my life. I am also a big fan of Supervisionso I was thrilled to see Team 4 bring those two worlds together for the latest Overwatch League skin.

This time Blizzard selected Reaper for the OWL skin treatment in celebration of the Kickoff Clash. His new skin is called Reaper Fighter and it is the first skin of the 2022 OWL tournament.

I have to say that while I don’t usually play the Reaper guy unless it’s the character I play in Mystery Heroes, this is an instant buy for me.

The skin, unsurprisingly, is a tribute to wrestling culture. Luchador Reaper has wrestling boots, leggings, cape, champion title and other nods to Mexican wrestling. He also has a wrestler’s mask. Lead concept artist David Kang chose to include a skull motif, which is a reference to both the Day of the Dead holiday and other aspects of the Reaper character.

As with other skins in the Overwatch League, you will not be able to unlock Reaper Fighter with credits in the Hero Gallery. You won’t see it in loot boxes either.

Instead, you’ll need to put down 200 Overwatch League Tokens. Buying that many tokens will cost you around $10, but there is a way to earn tokens for free.

All you need to do is connect your Battle.net account to YouTube and watch the Overwatch League matches live. Typically, you will earn five tokens per hour viewed. Double tokens will be awarded for select matches, although those eligible are not currently listed on the OWL site.

Remember that you can also earn tokens by watching official broadcasts. The Overwatch League website has the full schedule.

Once you have 200 OWL Tokens you can purchase the skin at Supervision. You will need to go to the Overwatch League menu and then select the OWL logo at the bottom.

You’ll have to act pretty quickly if you want the Reaper Fighter look. It will only be available until June 25. The good news is that there are a lot of OWL matches over the next two weeks, because the matches in the East region have been delayed. That means there are much more chances to earn tokens.

The Kickoff Clash tournament takes place between June 2nd and 5th. In the meantime, I’ll drop down on enemies from above to deliver a Death Blossom to them as a Reaper Fighter. Oh, and I’ll pretend I’m the best fighter on the planet, Pentagon Jr/Pentagon Dark/Penta Dark (he goes by many names).
