Bastion’s OWL skins received an adorable update in Overwatch 2’s update to the team-centric cosmetics.

Overwatch 2 allows players to represent their favorite Overwatch League team in the game with the inclusion of team skins. These branded cosmetics debuted in the first game, but have now received updated looks all around for the sequel.

The March 7 update changed everyone’s appearance, but few are more important than Bastion’s makeover, as he now sports a hat of the team’s skin fitted to his robot body.

The small screenshot in the post shows the Houston Outlaws variation, but each team has one with its own logo and color.

To the disappointment of some Atlanta Reign fans, their signature blue hat does not appear as the skin is equipped with a standard red variation.

While the reception has been largely positive across the board, one player suggested that these resources could have been put to better use.

“Community: ‘Give us PvE, developers:’ The best we can do is basti-hat,” they joked.

This kind of change might not make a huge difference in gameplay, but fan reaction to this proves that the community still appreciates light-hearted changes aimed at keeping the game playful.

However, it’s worth noting that these are new designs for Overwatch 2 and not updates to the old skins, so players will need to purchase them again if they want to rock the battle bot’s dad hat.
