Contenders Skins are very similar to Twitch rewards. The game will offer you Contenders skins if you watch their live matches for a particular amount of time for Overwatch 2. Although the main difference here is that you can even watch the matches on YouTube or the official Overwatch League website. Each month that Contenders is active, a fresh pair of hero skins will be selected, and they’ll show up in your account 24 hours after winning. Monthly resets of the hours after every event.
