Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland - arcade modes, missions, and rewards

Overwatch 2 is celebrating Christmas with its Winter Wonderland event in-game.

Multiplayer arcade games have also been added due to how popular they have been in the past.

These include some new antics with Mei, a new elimination game, and more.

Alongside these new arcade games are some matching challenges which are each tied to one of the three game modes.

Players can also get access to the Ice Queen Brigitte skin by completing six of these missions.

So, let's take a look at the new arcade modes being added to Overwatch 2, the missions that come with these and the rewards included in Winter Wonderland.

Arcade Modes added in Overwatch 2 Winter Wonderland

Mei's Snowball Offensive is the first game mode where all players battle as Mei, shooting snowballs at each other.

However, these snowballs aren't the fluffy kind you throw at friends, they're one-shot killing machines.

There is the option to play in a 5v5 or an eight-player deathmatch.

Secondly, there is also a Yeti Hunter mode where five players playing as Mei work to try and freeze Winston who is trying to steal food.

If Winston does manage to eat enough food then he goes berserk and pops his ultimate.

The final game mode is a 4v4 Freeze-thaw Elimination mode which consists of two teams.

The difference with this arcade game is that when someone dies, they instead become frozen until thawed out by a teammate.

To help make things easier for the losers, the winning team's heroes will be locked out.
