The Caught a Cold challenge requires catching snowballs while playing the Snowball Deathmatch game mode. The only character available in this game mode will be Mei, so hopefully, you’re comfortable with playing as her, even for a limited time. Each player only has three snowballs on them, but you can reload at any snow piles you find on the map.

You go about catching a snowball by pressing the V button while playing as Mei. You must time it perfectly before your enemy hits you with a snowball. Some players are good at telegraphing that they’re about to hit you with a snowball than others, but it all comes down to practice and catching the snowball at the right time. If you catch the snowball, it counts as a reload if you have an empty snowball slot on your Mei.
