Overwatch gets San Francisco Shock championship Doomfist skin for two weeks

Doomfist has never looked better than he has with this look, co-designed by the Overwatch League champions, the San Francisco Shock. But this Thunder skin is only here for a limited time.


The Overwatch League (along with esports, period) is in an undeniably different place right now, thanks to the continuing COVID-19 outbreak. So why not take a look back at simpler times, when the San Francisco Shock was dominating the field in front of a capacity crowd. The Shock crushed the Vancouver Titans in the Grand Finals of September's championship weekend to become the Overwatch League Season 2 champions. And to the victors go the spoils, as Blizzard unveiled a brand new Doomfist skin to celebrate the league's latest champs.

This is Doomfist's new Thunder skin, designed in conjunction with the San Francisco Shock team. He sports a darker, stormier gauntlet, along with headgear more in line with ancient Greek thunder god Zeus. Also, that's not a pretty mug to look at and it'll probably be the last thing Overwatch League MVP Jay "Sinatraa" Won's opponents see, as Doomfist lays down the hammer on them.

This thing sure does look cool, but it won't be available for very long. The legendary Thunder skin will only be available for two weeks, so if you want to pick it up, grab it between March 26 and April 9. It'll sell for 200 OWL tokens. For more on the making of the Thunder skin, be sure to check out the Overwatch League website.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
