How to Unlock Legendary Kiriko Skin in Overwatch 2

Are you trying to obtain the new Legendary Kiriko skin in Overwatch 2?

With the release of Overwatch 2, developers added a wide range of new skins, items, and characters. There are also a bunch of new Heroes that you can learn and master in the game. Perhaps the most popular of the bunch is Kiriko, previously referred to in online communities as the “Kanezaka Fox Girl.”

Kiriko is a healer Support Hero who has a unique set of abilities that can help any team. Regardless of what synergy or combination you have on your team, chances are, you could probably use a healer. In addition to her utility, Kiriko also comes with a Legendary skin that only a select few will be able to unlock.

If you are looking to obtain this rare feature, check out our quick guide on how to unlock the Legendary Kiriko skin in Overwatch 2.

Kiriko was introduced as a new Japanese Hero who has some history with Genji and Hanzo. Her abilities revolve around her kitsune companion spirit. She has a bubbly, humorous personality while also being somewhat of a trickster. Kiriko is known to enjoy sweet snacks like doughnuts.

In line with her family’s tradition, Kiriko is the protector of Kanezaka, a traditional Japanese town that also happens to be a Deathmatch map in Overwatch 2. Other than being a powerful protector and healer, she is also quite adept at martial arts when she has to fight alone.

In Overwatch 2, Kiriko has several unique abilities that are meant to help her teammates reach their potential while also making her a viable fighter. Her passive ability is Wall Climb, which lets her climb and wall she jumps into. Healing Ofuda is Kiriko’s primary fire ability. It shoots healing talismans that fly into teammates to heal them. Her secondary fire is Kunai, which deals up to 120 damage for headshots.

Swift Step lets Kiriko teleport directly to a teammate, even through walls and other objects. This is great for providing backup to struggling allies. Next, Protection Suzu is a projectile ability that cleanses all teammates that it hits while also making them temporarily invulnerable. Finally, Kitsune Rush is Kiriko’s ultimate ability that summons her Kitsune to buff up all allies that it goes through, providing movement speed, attack speed, and shorter cooldowns.

The Legendary Sukajan Kiriko skin is an exclusive Twitch Drop. That means you will have to watch the necessary Twitch streams for a specific amount of time to receive it. In this case, the requirements are the following:

  • Watch any of the streams in the Overwatch 2 category on Twitch for six hours total between October 7 2:00 p.m. PDT and October 16 at 11:59 p.m. PDT

Make sure you catch some Overwatch 2 streams from your favorite players and content creators to unlock this Legendary skin before it goes away. There is a chance that this exclusive skin never becomes available again, so try not to miss your shot this time.

After you have satisfied the six-hour watch time, just go to the Drops tab on Twitch and claim your Legendary Sukajan Kiriko skin. It should be added to your Overwatch 2 account within the next 24 hours.

Another Twitch Drop You Can Get

Other than the Legendary Sukajan Kiriko skin, there are also a couple of other rewards you can earn in this process. The Razor Sharp Kiriko Spray and Donut Weapon Charm can also be unlocked by watching Twitch streams.

For the Razor Sharp Kiriko Spray, all you have to do is watch streams in the Overwatch 2 category for at least two hours between October 17 at 11:00 a.m. PDT and October 24 12:00 a.m. PDT. If you watch another three hours, you will receive the Donut Weapon Charm.

Just like the Kiriko skin, simply claim these rewards on your Drop tab. Wait for them to be added to your Overwatch 2 account within 24 hours.
