As we previously mentioned, this is the third year in a row that the Halloween Terror event has featured in Overwatch. As per usual, all past skins that were available in 2016 and 2017 are back once again, and you can find the complete list of Halloween-themed skins just below.
Overwatch Junkenstein's Revenge Endless Mode
A mode that was originally introduced in the 2017 version of the Halloween event is the Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode. It's back for the second year in a row with the Overwatch Halloween Terror 2018 event, and basically puts a twist on the standard version of Junkenstein's Revenge.
In the Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode, all four players will have to team up to survive against 12 total waves of Zomnics (Omnics, but zombified), including several boss characters. You might be familiar with the likes of Roadhog, Mercy, Junkrat, and Reaper as bosses throughout the 12 waves, but this time Symmetra will also make an appearance, in her brand new Legendary Halloween Skin.
The characters that the four players can choose from are Soldier: 76, McCree, Torbjorn, Widowmaker, Ana, Zenyatta, and Genji. We'd recommend having at least one healer on your team for the Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode, as well as Torbjorn, who can prove particularly useful when you place his turret right outside the castle gates.
Once all 12 waves of the mode have been completed, Zomnics and boss characters alike will begin to spawn at a rapid rate, and at this point you can see multiple Roadhogs and Reapers at the same time. You'll have to hold them all off for as long as you can, but should all of your team be killed at the same time, Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode will come to a close.
