How To Unlock The Roadhog And Widowmaker Contenders Skins

Two new skins have been announced for the Overwatch Contenders series through the month of July.

Roadhog and Widowmaker are the newest heroes to receive a contenders skin, and will only be available during July.

How To Unlock The Roadhog And Widowmaker Contenders Skins

Just like any Contenders skin, you can unlock these by simply watching the contenders series broadcasts at overwatchcontenders.com.

After 5 hours of watching, viewers will receive the Contenders Roadhog skin, and after 5 more hours, they will unlock the Widowmaker skin.

You have the whole month to unlock these skins, and your total time is added together, meaning you do not need to watch 10 hours in one sitting.

To be eligible to unlock the skins, you must log in to the Overwatch Contenders website with your battle.net account, which must be in good standing.
