It’s almost time for Overwatch’s Halloween Terror 2018 event, and some heroes are already dressing up for the occasion. Blizzard has revealed the spooky makeovers for some of its heroes in the days leading up to the new event.

Doomfist was the first to get his Halloween look revealed, and he looks like he stepped right out of The Shape of Water. Check out Swamp Monster Doomfist here:

Banshee Moira is ready to strike fear into any enemy she faces:

Widowmaker’s makeover isn’t as extreme, but the web-influenced design is appropriately creepy. Behold, Spider Widowmaker:

Pharah takes things a bit old-school with her Halloween costume. She appears to have lost her head this time around, though don’t worry, she’ll be wearing her helmet during a game:

Even Overwatch’s newest hero, Wrecking Ball, is getting in on the fun. His mech turns into a Jack-o-Lantern for Halloween. In addition, Hammond himself becomes an Oogie Boogie-esque burlap sack monster:

Widowmaker’s skin is the only Epic one of the bunch, while the rest are Legendary. In addition, other skins from the previous years are likely to return, similar to prior events.  The haunts this time around focus on Chateau Guillard, Widowmaker’s family home.

The Overwatch Halloween Terror 2018 event begins on October 9, 2018 and will run until October 31, 2018.
