Overwatch Clown Junkrat's new skin is making some hot players


As predictable as their parents' disappointment, Overwatch players want to cut Junkrat's new clown skin.

Today is the beginning of Overwatch Overwatch Archives seasonal events in which new temporary game scenarios are activated and a lot of limited time skins are available. This year, they include the extremely unpleasant skin of Junkrat Circus. And, as predictable disappointment of parents, people want to beat the clown.

I always get a little excited Overwatch events. I love seeing the cute new clothes from my team of virtual killers, changing their looks for the new season. Last year's Overwatch Archives event gave me a very distinctive Scion skin for my Hanzo, who put it on a vest and tie that said, "I could easily buy you, but it's less painful to kill you."

A few events have passed since then, and the number of new event skins that I found attractive declined. Still, I look forward to this year's Archives event, with great anticipation. Maybe the robot samurai Genji was given a suit to match his brother, or the climatologist Mei would have a smart blue uniform like many of his teammates.

Then I laid eyes on the new skin of Junkrat's Circus, and the light inside me died.

Junkrat already has two legendary skins that dress him as a Bobo or Bobo of the Middle Ages. They are not particularly well loved. However, these skins of questionable artists were apparently not enough for Overwatch developer Blizzard.

Instead, Blizzard looked at the Australian pyromaniac and thought, "Do you know what would really improve the aesthetics of the bald hyena? White face paint and a magenta nose.

Most of the online reactions to Junkrat's new clown skin have been repulsive and rightly so. Junkrat may not be your traditional lane model, but that's no excuse to curse someone with a CMYK color scheme. Who, blessed with the ability to see colors and a little fashion sense, would inflict this on innocent eyes? Why was this considered acceptable?

Perplexed, I sought answers. And like a monkey's paw, the internet responded.

Maybe it was my fault for opening this Junkrat-in-a-box. Maybe I'm the legendary fool and the Junkrat circus had quietly passed from my life, a smell of roasted peanuts and politely unrecognized popcorn, had it remained silent.

But by bringing Junkrat's clown skin to the surface, I unconsciously recalled a truth universally recognized, but usually ignored: if it exists, humans will want to de-boning it.

The unleashing of this carnival horror by Blizzard over the world opened a Pandora's Box, from which escaped a whirlwind of disgust, despair and horror. However, nestled in the bottom of the box, bright and eternal, it glowed horny.

I did not want to write this article. I did not want clowning to become my beat. However, it is in the nature of life that we often do not get what we want, and Circus Junkrat is a symbol of this truism.

Most Overwatch the players wanted something cool. Something that would reinvigorate Junkrat's passion and make his detractors admire him. Something that would say, "Prepare yourself, for this radiant outback devil is coming your way."

Well, I think Circus Junkrat says that to some people. Monkey's Paw.

Overwatch is doing a free trial, allowing people to play for free until April 24, and the Overwatch Archives event will end on May 7. But Circus Junkrat? Circus Junkrat is forever.
