The only skin confirmed so far for the Lunar New Year event is Mei dressed as a rabbit. This is evident in the season 2 trailer, which is embedded below.

Challenges and modes

The details of the challenges for Overwatch 2’s Year of the Rabbit are still being worked out. We do know that you can get the Echo Kkachi legendary skin by completing the Good Fortune Kkachi challenge, but we still don’t know what you have to do to finish this challenge. Also, the Lucky Pouch weapon charm and Hongbao souvenir are both new to the Lunar New Year event, and you can get them by doing challenges for the Year of the Rabbit.It’s likely that Year of the Rabbit challenges in Overwatch 2 will be tied to event-exclusive arcade modes. Previous iterations of the Lunar New Year event have featured modes like Capture the Flag and Bounty Hunter, and it’s possible that Overwatch 2 will bring back these arcade modes.

At this time, that’s all the information we have on the upcoming Overwatch 2 Lunar New Year event and Year of the Rabbit challenges.
