We believe in creating a better world, and as part of that mission we’ve teamed up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to release a special charity skin in Overwatch: PINK MERCY!

Available for purchase in-game and online through May 21, all sales of this limited-time legendary skin will benefit BCRF and their mission to end breast cancer.

But this isn’t the only way to show your support! We’ve also created a limited-edition Pink Mercy charity shirt, unleashed a unique collection of Pink Mercy sprays and player icons you can get as Twitch Drops, and rallied an epic team of Overwatch content creators to stream for the cause.

Now you can help BCRF work toward a cure for breast cancer by purchasing the new PINK MERCY skin, available for a limited time on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.



Blizzard Entertainment will donate 100% the proceeds that it receives from all Pink Mercy skin sales to BCRF, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 (USD). The total donation amount will be disclosed after the campaign concludes on May 21. Please visit our shop page for more details.

We've also partnered with community artist ONEMEGAWATT to create a series of themed Twitch Drops, including a new player icon and four all-new sprays. Available only during this event, you can earn these special Pink Mercy cosmetics by viewing select streams on Twitch during the two-week promotional period.

IMPORTANT: To be eligible to receive Pink Mercy Twitch Drops you must first link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account. Visit the Twitch Connections page to log in and complete the link now.


Pink Mercy Twitch Drops will be available May 8–21 on select Twitch channels—see the full list of participating channels below. For more information on Twitch Drops, click here.

Over the next 14 days, a cadre of content creators from across the globe will be streaming Overwatch under the pink-ribboned banner of breast cancer research. On designated days, each creator will host a dedicated charity stream on Twitch, and all donations (including Twitch Bits) received during that specific stream will be sent to BCRF.

    A lot of work went into this and the foundation is quite reputable or so i heard. Will be buying this.

    Yeah, had it been another breast cancer foundation like the Susan G Komen one I wouldn't have bought the skin, as much as I like it.

    So how do you get the sprays? You just need to open a stream and literally let it roll for 6 hours? Fucking Twitch...

    In case I'm not the only one who wouldn't have known this without warning, don't mute the stream or it won't count. Having it on minimal volume was still non-issue while I watched Netflix and played OW though, got all the things.

    I.. Think? It's what I'm planning on doing, but why I need to run Twitch for 6 hours for B.net stuff is kinda pointless especially since I don't plan on even watching it

    Oh that's nice to know, thanks man. Would explain why I didn't get the WoW title back in the day

    To complement what some might have said, you may just open the stream and use the sound mixer to mute the window where the stream is opened. A friend of mine opened all the streams and went to bed : he had all the sprays unlocked when he woke up.

    Just need to double check your Bnet account is linked to your twitch account though.

    One of the mods on the OW reddit pinned a post to this announcement pointing out that several charity watchdog groups have given this charity high marks, so yes. It's a really good group.

    You don't have to watch it all in one day, but you do need to watch for a total of 6 hours. Kinda neat that they are partnering with some streamers that would otherwise not get as much traffic. I liked the first one.

    can tell that this is not true. i muted the sound, played twitch with 160p (bad connection causes high ping) and got all the sprays and icons.

    bought the skin for myself and my sister. i like the extra sound effects you get from the skin, especially the one when you get a team member to full health.

    Huh, interesting. I only watched ~4½ hours of a stream and I got all unlocks.
  1. Perfectdoll's Avatar
    I had no issue with keeping my streams muted for a lot of the time I had it running and I've gotten the +6 hour sprays and I certainly didn't watch that unmuted.
  1. Tziva's Avatar
    Yeah muting definitely still counts. I think the confusion may be that you don't get all the rewards instantly so someone may have checked, not seen the rewards, and assumed muted didn't count.

    I did 100% of my time muted and got everything. I muted right on the stream interface too, not the tab or my window's settings.

    Hm it was actually a lot of people saying so in a comment thread, not just one confused person, but good to know in case of some other future viewing rewards.

    atleast one of the streamers i was watching was donating all the money they were being given on the steam to the same foundation. they earned quite a lot!
  1. Paraka's Avatar
    Well I would hope they get the spine enough to do a Testicular Cancer one with Reignhardt.

    OW feels incomplete otherwise.

    Think it was a requirement to be featured on the list that in the timeslot you had you'd donate everything you got to BCRF
  1. Tenjen's Avatar
    Thats a good sum then.

    People dont seem to get how complicated cancer is and how much research costs. Even for one type of cancer that is "popular" to research
  1. Mormolyce's Avatar
    Mmmm, do I have to be watching the stream while it's live? This is fucking annoying, every time I log in today they're offline for some reason. During the time the Playoverwatch site said they'd be live, that is.
