'Overwatch' OWL June Joust Widowmaker Skin Guide: How to Unlock the 'Ange De La Mort' Skin
Blizzard has announced that Widowmaker will have a new skin in celebration of the incoming "June Joust" of the Overwatch League this coming June 10th to June 12th. The sleek and sexy femme fatale sniper of Overwatch will receive the legendary "Ange de la Mort" skin, which will be available within this month.
Translated as "Angel of Death" in French and as a reference to her in-game lore, the "Ange de la Mort" skin, according to Forbes, is what the players would get if Widowmaker tries to cosplay fellow Damage character Reaper due to its gloomy aesthetic.
The skin is a mixture of black with gray and red outlines and it has a skull-like buckler in the waist. Her signature spider motif was seen on her chest.
