Overwatch 2: Rarest & Unique Skins 2023 (Some Change Voice Lines)

Today we will look at the best rarest & unique skins you can get for Overwatch 2 in 2023.

Overwatch has had its own share of unique skins since the preorder days. But the value & rarity of these skins is unknown to the new players who recently just jumped in on the OW2 trend. There are skins that are so rare that accounts or redeem codes with these skins are sold for over $800 on eBay. But all of these changed since Blizzard added phone number authentication to OW2 accounts. Also, many of the skins have become unobtainable anymore. So to help you find all these skins in one place, we have collected the data and ranked them on this page. So here’s our list of all the best rarest & unique skins you can get for Overwatch 2 in 2023.

Most Expensive Overwatch Skins
Accounts or redeem codes with rare Overwatch skins are sold for over $800 on eBay

The best part of Overwatch was the loot boxes. They were easy ways to access up to 363 skins, as 211 skins had to be collected by different means. Loot boxes are now removed from Overwatch 2, making previously available skin now bit rare compared to before. Also, due to the team color changes of Los Angeles Valiant, San Francisco Shock, & Florida Mayhem, 186 skins are no longer for sale in the game. So if you want to know how much your account is worth for fun, then websites like playerauctions.com will let you calculate how much all your skins & gold guns can be worth.

Previous Rare Skin Now Available From Shop/Packs (Paid)

Following Origins Edition skins (previously ‘very rare’) are removed from the above table as they are included as part of Overwatch 2: Watchpoint Pack:

Hero Skin Event
D.Va Officer HotS Play 5 Games vs other players
Bastion Overgrown Origins Edition
Pharah Security Chief Origins Edition
Blackwatch Reyes Blackwatch Reyes Origins Edition
Soldier: 76 Strike Commander Morrison Origins Edition
Tracer Slipstream Origins Edition

Before OW2 Watchpoint Pack, D.Va’s Officer skin was infrequent among the 50 million OW player community.

Why “Pink” & “Alien” Are the Rarest Skins in the Game?

Yes, the “Pink” Mercy skin & “Alien” Zarya skins are the rarest & most unique skins you will ever encounter in Overwatch 2. Pink Mercy is no longer available because the “BCRF Charity Event” it benefited from is gone. Players may get charity-themed unlocks during a brief event that allows them to donate to charity. Players may purchase the Pink Mercy skin for $14.99. The focus of the event rapidly shifted to this skin. Before Overwatch 2, paying for skins was unheard of in the game. But many players paid for this skin mainly become it was for the said charity.


The Alien Skin for Zarya is likewise no longer a purchasable item. Former Overwatch League MVP Jay Won, also known as “Sinatraa,” created this skin. This was because Jay “Sinatraa” Won, the former Overwatch League MVP who worked on the cosmetic, was involved in a significant allegation. On June 16, 2020, the Overwatch League unveiled this celebratory in-game skin in recognition of his 2019 MVP award. In March 2021, however, after complaints surfaced, the OWL provided refunds for the skin and took off the MVP and OWL Championship badges from the skin. You may get more information on the claims in the linked Wikipedia article. More info regarding the allegations & ‘Alien’ skin is available on this linked Wikipedia page.

The new highly customizable Genji Mythic skin, “Cyber Demon”  (one of best skins in the game) has a lot of new voice lines. Here’s a post from u/Proto_VI showcasing the unique voice lines in this skin (make sure to press unmute in the below video):
