Blizzard Entertainment kicks off a new challenge event in Overwatch today, and this time it’s all about Pachimari, the tentacled onion mascot of the Overwatch world. The Pachimari Challenge will reward players with cosmetics for winning games, and the ultimate prize is Roadhog’s new Pachimari skin.

Overwatch’s Pachimari Challenge will run March 9-22. The event is similar to previous character-specific challenges for Ana, Baptiste, Bastion, Hanzo, Mercy, and Sigma. Players need only to win a series of games across any game mode to unlock new cosmetic items. Winning three games unlocks a new player icon, while winning six games unlocks a new Junkrat emote. Winning nine games unlocks the epic-tier Pachimari skin for Roadhog, the game’s canonical Pachimari enthusiast.

Players can also earn six new sprays (some of which you can see below), just for logging in to Overwatch.

Overwatch’s latest event is now live on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. The game is playable through backward compatibility on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
