Overwatch Lunar New Year

January 25 – February 15, 2022

Celebrate the Year of the Tiger

Ring in the Year of the Tiger with a resounding roar! Celebrate the return of Overwatch Lunar New Year with festive cosmetics, weekly rewards, and returning brawls. To commemorate the occasion, we’re bringing rich new rewards for you to unlock: set a lantern alight with Genji, illuminate the night with Orisa’s sparklers, don some New Year-ready attire as Seolbim Mercy, flit around the battlefield in Nezha Tracer’s fire-heeled shoes, and more!

Lunar New Year Brawls

Join the Festivities


Rack up points as you claim bounties in this rowdy brawl. The player who gets the first kill of the match becomes a Target, and everyone else a Bounty Hunter. Earn extra points by killing the Target, but beware—if you land the killing blow on a Target, you become the next one.


The stakes have been raised in Capture the Flag. With both teams’ flags much closer together, six captures are now needed to win the match instead of the traditional three. Launch an all-out offensive against the enemy to snatch their flag as many times as possible.


In Capture the Flag, each team attempts to secure the enemy flag and return it to their base while preventing the opposing team from doing the same. Determined players can try Competitive Capture the Flag, which includes placement matches, leaderboards, and Competitive Points!
