Overwatch Dragoon Mercy Skin Causes Frustrating Community Reactions

The actual Mercy skin turned out a little more on the green and dragon side, rather than a warrior look.

Blizzard is holding another special event for Overwatch and with that comes a fresh batch of goodies; hero skins being the most anticipated. As usual, the hero shooter teases some of the new looks prior to the actual event. Previously, healer Zenyatta received yet another skin, this time based on Huitzilopochtli, an Aztec reference. This look coincides with previous cultural references for the Omnic support.

The latest reveal in the pre-event teasers is for yet another support hero, Mercy. A previous leak had stated that Mercy would get a Dragoon skin and that leak has come to fruition, well, sort of. The actual Mercy skin turned out a little more on the green and dragon side, rather than a warrior look. 

Did someone call a… dragon?

In particular, the support received a big, blocky helmet that wraps around their face. With Mercy being the most popular hero in Overwatch or, at least, the character with the most fanatic players, this bold, abrasive skin is not rubbing everyone the right way.





Luckily, the reaction to Dragoon Mercy hasn't been a complete disaster and some prominent streamers have come out in support of the latest Overwatch skin.




As with all the circus around Overwatch though, the most fun is always found on the sidelines. The rest of the shooter community can sit back and revel in some jokes around seeing everyone react to the skin.





Overwatch has an opinionated community that is always vocal about any of the game's happenings. Not every event is going to have precisely the content people want. With some skins requiring a lot of grinding or currency to unlock, it can feel a bit harsher to not get something special, particularly to many people who try to acquire all skins for their favorite hero.
