Overwatch's Halloween Terror 2021 brings back Junkenstein's Revenge

By Heidi Nicholas,
Halloween Terror 2021 has begun in Overwatch, with weekly challenges, the return of Junkenstein's Revenge, and more.

Over on the Overwatch site, the devs tell us that "it's time for another year of fear." Junkenstein's Revenge is back, and asks you and three other players to "confront a host of haunting horrors, including Junkenstein and his mindless Zomnic horde, the dreadful Monster, the mysterious Summoner, the bloodthirsty Reaper, and the devious Witch of the Wilds." Junkenstein's Endless, meanwhile, has you facing a never-ending stream of "monstrosities." Halloween Terror 2021 also brings with it Challenge Missions — Vengeful Ghost has you chased by a ghost, while Zomnics move faster in Frenzied Stampede and explode in Volatile Zomnics. Three They Were sees three players dealing more damage, and Mystery Swap has heroes "periodically randomiz[ing]". Lastly, Shocking Surprise has some enemies spawning Shock-Tires when they die.

There are sprays, player icons, and skins to win in weekly challenges, too. In Week One, which lasts until October 19th, playing nine games gets you the Skeleton Genji Player Icon, while 18 gets you the Skeleton Genji Spray and 27 unlocks the Skeleton Genji Epic Skin. In Week Two, from October 19th until the 26th, playing nine games earns you the Einherjar Zarya Player Icon while 18 gets you the Einherjar Zarya Spray and 27 earns the Einherjar Zarya Epic Skin. Lastly, in Week Three, which lasts until November 2nd, you can grab the Clown Roadhog Player Icon for playing nine games, while 18 unlocks the Clown Roadhog Spray and 27 nets you the Clown Roadhog Epic Skin.

We haven't picked up any new achievements for Overwatch Halloween Terror 2021, which lasts until November 2nd — will you be playing? Let us know in the comments!
