Legendary skins (3000 credits): 

Swamp Monster Doomfist 

(opens in new tab)

Channel Creature from the Black Lagoon and Hellboy's Abe Sapien with this fishy look for Doomfist, complete with gills, fins, and a seaweed belt. 

Banshee Moira 

(opens in new tab)

This spooky look for Moira perfectly complements her abilities, as you drain the life from your opponents with your purple energy beams. 

Enchanted Armor Pharah 

(opens in new tab)

Pharah always gets some of the best outfits, and the Enchanted Armor is no exception; on top of its regal design, you'll find that Pharah's got no head inside this spectral suit when she removes her helmet! 

Slasher: 76 Soldier: 76 

(opens in new tab)

The obligatory Jason mask finally makes an appearance on Soldier: 76, which also outfits his rifle with a (non-functioning, sadly) chainsaw akin to Gears of War's Lancer. 

Bride Sombra 

(opens in new tab)

With her green skin, tattered dress, and shock of white hair, Sombra looks ready to scare the daylights out of her enemies when she sneaks up and suddenly attacks their flank. 

Jack-O'-Lantern Wrecking Ball 

(opens in new tab)

Hammond is really feeling the spooky holiday spirit, outfitting his mech to look like a sentient pumpkin (vine legs and all), and even donning an adorable little demon outfit himself. 

Epic skins (750 credits): 

Undead McCree 

(opens in new tab)

Expect to see this skin a lot, because it makes everyone's favorite BAMF look even cooler as a zombified cowboy with green-glowing guts and a skull bandana. 

Pumpkin Mei 

(opens in new tab)

In contrast to her previous ghost-themed skin, Mei's newest Halloween costume plays it straight, with a suit that looks like it was stitched together from pumpkin chunks. 

Spider Widowmaker 

(opens in new tab)

Widowmaker's rocking a web-patterned black and purple outfit to match her many-eyed goggles, which even get their own Spider-Man-esque look. 

Don't forget: this is also the perfect opportunity to pick up Halloween skins from past years' selections, which all have reduced prices now that they're no longer new. If you waited patiently for the chance, here are all the skins you can pick up from the past Halloween Terror events:
