Nexus Challenge 2017: 2.0 - Hanamura Showdown <2017-04-25 - 2017-05-23>

The Nexus Challenge is back - bigger and better in every way! This time, a showdown of epic proportions goes down in Hanamura Templa, as it is brought to the Nexus.

Supplied Skins

  • Cyberdemon Zarya (from Mecha War) - Rare
    • Reverse engineered from Overwatch's cyberization techniques, the Jigoku battle armor offers most of the benefits of cybernetic augmentation without requiring invasive surgery.
  • Oni Genji (from Nexus-altered Earth) - Rare
    • It is said that an oni with an iron club is invincible. But that's nothing compared to an oni with a katana.
  • Sakura Auriel (from Nexus-altered Earth) - Epic
    • For centuries, viewing cherry blossoms at the start of spring has been a time-honored tradition. Auriel was the first omnic to join in the festivities, and has done so every year since she started.
  • Steel Dragon Genji (from Nexus-altered Earth) - Rare
    • Though he used to struggle with being part man and part machine, Genji has since come to terms with his dual nature. Improving his body along with his spirit was the obvious next step.

Supplied Mounts



Busan Police Hovercycle - Rare

Reassigned from MEKA to the KNPA after the first colossal omnic attack, these police bikes are the fastest law enforcement vehicles in Korea. This one was purportedly used by D.Va herself!

  • Subuniverse: Nexus-altered Earth
  • Type: Event or Quest
  • Awarded by playing games with friends during the Nexus Challenge 2.0 event.


Overwatch Nexagon - Rare

The heroism and bravery of Overwatch's agents have coalesced into a new nexagon. While most are born of conflict, this one is branded with a symbol of hope and idealism.

  • Subuniverse: Nexus-altered Earth
  • Type: Event or Quest
  • Awarded by playing games with friends during the Nexus Challenge 2.0 event.
