How to unlock the mythic Orisa skin in Overwatch 2

Typically, players earn the base version of a mythic skin by leveling up the paid Battle Pass. This version of the Battle Pass requires 1,000 Overwatch Coins, which is about $9.99 USD.

It's possible to get some free Overwatch Coins through Microsoft Rewards. However, it should be noted that codes for Overwatch Coins must be redeemed on or before the end of December.

Another way to earn Overwatch Coins is by completing the weekly challenges. Players get 30 Overwatch Coins after finishing four of them, 20 Overwatch Coins for completing nine weekly challenges, and 10 Overwatch Coins for doing all 12 challenges.
