Overwatch 2 Halloween Terror Event Start Time, Cosmetics and more
Plenty of skins will be available during the Halloween Terror event.
The Halloween Terror event brings back one of our favorite missions, Junkenstein’s Revenge: Wrath of the Bride. This limited-time co-op adventure will have you and your friends running for cover as a deranged Dr. Junkenstein wreaks havoc on Blizzard’s mega-hit Overwatch 2 game. This is also the first seasonal event for Overwatch 2 since its launch.
The original co-op mode from Junkenstein’s Castle is making a return for Halloween Terror 2022. Players will have a chance to complete challenges and unlock special rewards like the Nightfall Over Adlersbrunn Name Card, Jack O’Lantern Weapon Charm, and Battle Pass XP!
This time around, there will be enhanced Twitch drops. These will offer cosmetic items that can be acquired by watching Overwatch 2 action on Twitch for an estimated time. As per the official blog post, players will have the opportunity to jump on a co-op mission in a fierce and enduring fight against Dr. Junkenstein, and indulge in other side activities that will be rewarding for each participant.
The Overwatch 2 Halloween event will start at 11:00 AM PDT on October 25. The event will be included in the upcoming Overwatch 2 update that is supposed to nerf a couple of heroes. This update is supposed to bring Bastion and Torbjorn back to the game, as well as the removed Junkertown map.
No tricks, only treats
Unlock even more spooky rewards during Halloween Terror by watching your favorite streamers on Twitch! Starting October 25 through November 1 at 11:00 a.m. PDT, all channels streaming under the Overwatch 2 category will have terrifically terrifying Twitch drops.
Viewers can earn the following rewards at:

Don’t forget to connect your Twitch account through Battle.net to earn your rewards. Players who changed their password since the last campaign need to sign into their account again to claim future Twitch drops. The Halloween Terror Twitch drops are also available on all platforms, and participating regions include North America, Europe, Latin America, Australia/New Zealand, Taiwan, Korea, and Southeast Asia.
Destiny calls, fortune follows
Along with the haunting holiday events, we’re running a Double Match XP weekend starting October 28-31 as we follow through on our promise from launch week. All players who log in to Overwatch 2 from the start of the Halloween Terror event through the end of Season One will also receive the Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary Skin and the Health Pack Weapon Charm.
Of course, the fun doesn’t stop there. Earn the Werewolf Winston item drops while watching your favorite Overwatch 2 Twitch creators and unlock more free rewards through crushing special Junkenstein challenges throughout Halloween Terror.
We’re expanding on the story of Junkenstein’s Revenge through Wrath of the Bride and adding spooky new skins and bundles to the Overwatch Shop. We look forward to sharing in all the fearsome festivities in Overwatch 2’s first Halloween Terror event running October 25 through November 9!
