A new challenge goes live in Overwatch today, and players who participate can earn in-game rewards — most notably, a new skin for Baptiste, the latest hero to join the game. The skin was teased in a short story yesterday, where Baptiste reunites with some old Talon teammates and has to make some hard decisions about his future.

As with the short story Bastet in January, starring Ana and Soldier: 76, players can log in and complete challenges to earn a set of Baptiste-themed cosmetics.

The event begins today, June 18, and runs until July 1. On top of the new skin, players can earn seven sprays and an icon. Here are all of the rewards currently obtainable, and how to get them.

The first way to get the rewards is to win in Quick Play, Competitive Play, or Arcade — that’s any match that isn’t a custom or Workshop game. The first three wins will earn you the Baptiste player icon; at six wins, you earn two sprays; and the final reward for nine games is the Battle Medic Baptiste skin.

For the rest of the sprays, players can watch selected streamers on Twitch. These sprays are super cute, even if you’re not a Baptiste or Talon fan. Two hours will earn you one spray, four hours earns you two additional sprays, and six hours will complete your collection with three more sprays.

Based on how Blizzard handled the Bastet challenge and the Nano Cola event for D.Va, these rewards won’t return for quite some time — if ever — so make sure you get your games in quickly if you’re a big fan of Baptiste.
