Mei's Snowball Offensive
Winter Themed Updates
General Updates
Hero Balance Changes
Bug Fixes




A new Brawl has been added to Overwatch, and it has a winter theme. Mei's Snowball Offense ... In this game mode you will find a 6v6 PVP mode, featuring everyone's favourite, Devil in disguise, Mei. You main and alternate fire have been changed to fire 1 snowball, after firing that snowball you have to reload by finding a pile of snow and holding your alternate fire button until the bar is full. One piece of advice I offer is that after you start collecting the snow, you can still move your camera and look around to spot enemies, immediately interrupt your loading if you see someone (with a snowflake on their head, which indicates they have a snowball) going for you. You still have access to your other 2 abilities, but do keep in mind that 1 hit from a snowball and you are dead. This game mode is placed in Ecopoint: Antarctica.

There are 4 achievements for this game mode:

Whap!
Kill an enemy with a snowball from 25 meters away
Reward: Snowcree Spray

Snowed In
Win Mei's Snowball Offensive without losing a round
Reward: Snowmei Spray

Ambush!
Kill 3 enemies while they are picking up snow in one game
Reward: Snowhog Spray

Cool As Ice
Kill 4 enemies without missing
Reward: Snowreaper Spray

I think some of those skins looks really good thanks for posting the patch notes and those. I used to look at Overpwn for that stuff but that website stopped making posts so i haven't kept up with the normal overwatch info.

Is that for PC or Console? I've played quite a bit of Mercy on PC, and have never had that happen to me.
