Overwatch 2 Skin Is Letting Players Spot The Wearer Through Walls


A carryover aspect of a special event in the original Overwatch is causing problems for Overwatch 2 players, as it makes them highly visible to opponents, even through walls. The skin in question belongs to Lucio and was released as an unlockable back in 2018 as part of Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland event.

The bug report was first pointed out by a Reddit user going by the handle of FidgetSpinnetMan, who pointed out that Lucio’s Snow Fox skin was making him an easy target. A special visual feature of the skin is an animated graphic effect that resembles glowing ice crystals surrounding the character. However, it is doubtful that the skin was intended to allow other players to spot Snow Fox Lucio users from such a long distance or even through solid objects, which would be a distinct disadvantage in a competitive multiplayer FPS title. .


In his post, the Reddit user discouraged other players from using the support hero skin, pointing out the “smoke” that made his opponent visible through walls while playing. The post also includes an image with the ice crystal graphic clearly visible, as if seeping through a pillar, behind which his opponent appears to be.

In addition to the problems of not being able to hide behind cover, other commenters have pointed out that the graphical effect is a detriment in general. Using his ability to wall ride, which allows Lucio to ride along walls and gives him a bonus to his movement speed while doing so, Lucio is one of the most mobile characters in Overwatch. However, the added attention of the glowing effect, which apparently has a very long draw distance, also increases his visibility when he is on the move.

At this time, Blizzard has not made any announcements on how or when it plans to address the issue.
