What's the list of the one-time-only skins so far? I'm talking about the ones like Doctor Mercy, Medic Baptiste, Nuka Cola Dva, etc. These don't show up when going through character info in-game. And wikis about skins don't seem to list them either.

Took me some time, but did some research and compiled a list for you. In terms of "can no longer get" I think this covers it. Someone can let me know if I missed anything. I don't include the "Origins" skins cause I believe they still come with buying the Origins/Legendary version of the game to this day.

  • Blizzcon Bastion (Had to attend or buy a digital ticket to Blizzcon 2016)
  • Blizzcon Winston (Had to attend or buy a digital ticket to Blizzcon 2017)
  • Kerrigan Widowmaker (login during Starcraft's 20th anniversary)
  • Noire Widowmaker (preorder bonus)
  • Pink Mercy (DLC purchase that benefited BCRF)
  • Bastet Ana (Ana's Bastet Challenge)
  • Nano D.Va (DV.a's Nano Cola Challenge)
  • Dr. Ziegler Mercy (Mercy's Recall Challenge)
  • Combat Medic Baptiste (Baptiste's Reunion Challenge)
  • American Reaper (Summer Games 2019 Week 1 Challenge)
  • Zhongguo Mei (Summer Games 2019 Week 2 Challenge)
  • Bundesadler Reinhardt (Summer Games 2019 Week 3 Challenge)
  • Brick Bastion (Bastion's Brick Challenge)
  • Inferno Junkrat (Halloween Terror 2019 Week 1 Challenge)
  • Vampire Baptiste (Halloween Terror 2019 Week 2 Challenge)
  • Demon Hunter Sombra (Halloween Terror 2019 Week 3 Challenge/Blizzcon 2018)
  • Monk Doomfist (Lunar New Year 2020 Week 1 Challenge)
  • Ancient Bronze Winston (Lunar New Year 2020 Week 2 Challenge)
  • Paper Cutting Wrecking Ball (Lunar New Year 2020 Week 3 Challenge)
  • Pacific All-Stars Genji (All-Star Weekend 2018; OWL Token skin)
  • Atlantic All-Stars Tracer (All-Star Weekend 2018; OWL Token skin)
  • Pacific All-Stars Lucio (All-Star Weekend 2019; OWL Token skin)
  • Atlantic All-Stars Mercy (All-Star Weekend 2019; OWL Token skin)
  • Zen-Nakji Zenyatta (OWL Token skin)

Officer D.Va and Oni Genji were also limited time skins, but were eventually added permanently after console players expressed frustration at not being able to earn them due to lacking a PC. (the skins were got for playing Heroes of the Storm)

Beyond that, there's many Overwatch League skins which are no longer able to be gotten as some teams have changed colors (but you keep the original colors if you own them). There were also "grey" skins available through Twitch for OWL.

Last year was the first year we started getting weekly challenges during the seasonal events. I think it is a safe guess that those weekly cosmetics will be added to the pool of season items when they come back around this year. Or they may just repeat the same weekly challenges again.

Neat. Glad I got that sweet doc mercy skin.

I noticed some special zen skin too where it looked like his head was see through.

You're absolutely right, I completely forgot about that skin. The one that looks like an octopus in a fishbowl, yeah? Zen-Nakji Zenyatta. It was created to honor the 2018 OWL MVP, JJonak. The team asked him what kind of Legendary skin he wanted, and that's what came out of it.

limited time skins are the worst, especially the OWL ones
just let them become available to buy again, they didn’t even bring the Tracer and Genji ones back temporarily when they released the Mercy and Lucio ones last year

I would have hoped the diablo Sombra skin would have set a new precedent in bringing limited stuff back but it doesn’t seem like it

One can hope that, since Switch is new, Blizzard makes the Anniversary event this year have those skins up for grabs for all? I get the whole exclusivity thing, but it's been 4 years of Overwatch, everyone should have a chance at getting those skins, whether they are new or veterans at the game

Playing DPS really shows you how much you depend on how good the rest of your team is performing and that, no matter what, they'll still find a way to blame you for everything.

Just buff the damn heroes properly, Blizzard.

Yeah it can be really stark but it's often hard to specifically diagnose mid-match beyond "someone's not pulling their weight."

Lately it's been easier, though. Fuckin' coward tanks don't know how to push - it's ridiculous! I've killed both their supports just walk through the choke you idiots! Try! Tryyyyyyyyyoh okay just do nothing I guess.

Some people in general take videogames too seriously... Don't feel bad about yourself, feel more bad for the person who's let's life pass them by getting too sucked into a bunch of pixels. Just play how you wanna play and have fun (without being a shithead to others of course)

It really sucks that they are not doing Legendary skins with unique audio/visual effects anymore. I hope that Pink Mercy will return because that's her only skin i am missing. But i highly doubt that it will.

Probably been said many times before over the years so I'll just add to it, but I'm convinced that if you rage quit in a QP you get sent to a black hole where you're stuck on shit teams for 10+ games. Fucking hell.

Winston has become the most annoying tank for me after all the other tanks have been nerfed. If he is pocketed he can be SO annoying.

So the SR gains you get when people on the other team aren't bugged at this point right? Like theyre working as intended? Because its been over a month since you only get like 7 SR for a win in that situation but when you lose a game due to a leaver you lose your regular SR. Super frustrating

I recognize that username. It rings a Bell of Assholes in my mind - I'm sure I've played with or against them and they made some wholly negative impression on me to the point that I scrolled through my PSN messages trying to find it.

I couldn't, but my point is YaBoiRyanK is not merely a douchebag to you, but to all who happen across their poisonous path.

Fuck 'em.

Got called a smurf (and a few other things) today by a rage quitter. I will take it as a compliment....even though I am not very good but was just having a solid game in general.

Loving playing Diva at the moment, feels like when I warm up I can really start rolling over the enemy team. Still not a fan of DPS, would rather play an off-tank or support Mercy, Lucio, or Moria 90% of the time. Ball is also great on certain maps but only because no one at my level seems to know how to deal with it haha

I had one of the weirdest matches ever yesterday. It was a bronze match as a support on Dorado. We made it to the first checkpoint, but then the enemy team won the next fight and started spawn camping the right door. I (as Lucio) snuck out the left door and went around the entire enemy team, who continued to spawn camp, and started moving the payload by myself. About halfway to the second point our Moira joined me and the two of us pushed it all the way through the opening and closing door after point B before the enemy team actually came after us. In fact, they continued killing people at the old spawn, so the rest of my team ended up spawning closer and beating them back to the payload.

If this wasn't enough, they managed to stop us very close to the end, then proceeded to SPAWN CAMP AGAIN except for a single McCree, who me and the Moira took out and then pushed the payload the rest of the way to finish the map.

Then on their attack, for nearly the entirety of point A the enemy Reinhardt, Sombra, and Lucio hung around the defensive spawn trying to kill people who came out until Overtime when they all went back to the payload and made a serious push. They made it all the way to the last point but we stopped them just after the point B door.

I thought for sure they were throwing after their point A behavior but then they surmounted an actual decent push. I know it's bronze, but the entire game seemed like an extra level of WTF.

Yeah his name definitely seem familiar. I reported those messages and action has been taken place so there’s that I guess!
