Overwatch has an exclusive event to celebrate Mardi Gras, and in it, players can receive a brand new skin for Ashe. She and Bob have intricate green, gold, and white trim adorning their outfits, complete for the festive event, with a sleek mask to go with it.

The event goes from Feb. 25 to March 9. During this time, you have the chance to earn the Ashe skin. To receive it, you have to win 9 games in Overwatch. These wins can come from quick play, competitive, or arcade games. These are not games you participate in, but straight-up win. Along the way, you earn Ashe and Bob Mardi Gras sprays for three wins, and a gold mask spray when you reach six wins.

Additionally, during the event, you have the opportunity to acquire six other unique Ashe Mardi Gras sprays. To earn these, you have to watch Twitch streamers who are playing Overwatch during this. You receive one at two hours, two at four hours, and three at six hours. To add up hours to receive these skins, you need to watch any of the channels under the Overwatch tab on Twitch to receive credit, which you can review on Blizzard’s page to check to see if you’re looking at the correct choices. Also, you need to link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account to ensure it goes to you, or you will not be able to claim them. 

The Mardi Gras in Overwatch goes until March 9, and you can also check out the new Triple Damage game mode. Instead of having the traditional two heroes, two healers, and two tanks, you have three healers, two healers, and a single tank.
