Some Overwatch 2 Players Think Pharah Was The Wrong Choice For an Inarius Skin

Highlights

  • Some Overwatch 2 players believe that Sigma would have been a better choice for Inarius’ skin instead of Pharah, as they share a similar stature and mystery.
  • Overwatch 2 players approved of the idea and expressed their regret that Sigma wasn’t given Inarius’ skin, envisioning him spreading his wings during his ultimate.
  • The Diablo 4 skins in Overwatch 2 have received praise for their design, but players are frustrated that they can only be obtained by purchasing a $39.99 themed bundle, leading to criticism towards Blizzard’s decisions.

Some Overwatch 2 players believe Sigma would have been a better choice for Inarius’ skin than Pharah. Overwatch 2 started a new season this month, and to celebrate the occasion, the hero shooter launched another big collaboration.

Overwatch 2 launched the Halloween Terror 2023 event this month, adding a PvE mode based on Diablo 4 called Trials of Sanctuary. In this 4v4 mode, players can choose from six Sanctuary-themed heroes and fight against the dark legions. Along with the PvE mode, Overwatch 2 added Diablo 4 skins, turning Moira into Lilith, Pharah into Inarius, Reinhardt into Imperius, and Wrecking Ball into Azmodan. But while the Diablo 4 skins have received praise for the quality of their design, some Overwatch 2 players believe would have been a better choice for Inarius’ look.

Reddit user blissfuldick shared their opinion that Sigma would be a better hero for Inarius’ skin instead of Pharah. In the post, the player says that they’re “not really complaining about the skin,” but that it “would have been much cooler” for them to see Sigma as Inarius. The player thinks this combination would have been more interesting because Sigma and Inarius share a similar stature and mystery. Sigma is an astrophysicist from Overwatch 2 who, after an experiment went wrong, gained the power to control gravity. Inarius is a prominent character from the Diablo franchise whose involvement with Lilith leads to the creation of Sanctuary and the Nephalem race.

In the comments on the post, Overwatch 2 players approved of the player’s idea, and regretted that Sigma wasn’t given Inarius’ skin. One player suggested that “it would be epic” to see Sigma as Inarius, spreading his wings when the champion uses his ultimate. Another Overwatch 2 player said that he would play Sigma again if the hero had gotten the look of the father of the Nephalem. A third comment also regretted that Ramattra or Soldier: 76 didn’t receive skins as part of the collaboration between Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4.

While the Diablo 4 skins draw attention for their appearance, this isn’t the only reason the visuals stand out from the other Overwatch 2 skins. The only way to get the Diablo 4 skins is to buy the themed bundle that costs $39.99, something that made Overwatch 2 players furious. Despite the criticism from players, Blizzard hasn’t revealed whether the skins will be available individually, adding this to the list of unpopular decisions made by the company concerning Overwatch 2.

Overwatch 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
