Overwatch's limited-time PachiMarchi Challenge rewards players for wins

By Heidi Nicholas,
Overwatch's PachiMarchi Challenge is live now, offering rewards — including an epic Roadhog skin — for wins in Quick Play, Competitive Play, and Arcade. You can check out the event trailer below.


According to Blizzard, the PachiMarchi Challenge is "a celebration of the lovable, huggable, and oh-so-squeakable half-onion, half-octopus." You have until March 22nd to get those time-limited rewards. Winning three games gets you the Pachimari Hat Icon, while six wins gets you the Pachimari Junkrat Emote, and nine wins unlocks the Pachimari Roadhog Skin. You can grab a few more sprays by playing the game before March 22nd, including the Junkimari Spray.

We don't yet know what Blizzard has planned for Overwatch for the rest of the year, but thanks to BlizzCon 2021, we did get a behind-the-scenes look at Overwatch 2, which game director Jeff Kaplan clarified will be a "true sequel to the first game, not an add-on." We'll let you know when we find out what else is planned for Overwatch in 2021, and if we find out more about Overwatch 2. In the meantime, you've got until March 22nd to finish up with the Overwatch PachiMarchi Challenge.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
