The Overwatch Archive events always take players on a trip to the past. But this time it seems that some leather goes all the way back.
Widowmaker’s skin for the 2021 Archives event, which begins April 6, is the first to be unveiled.
Mousquetaire Widowmaker turns the sniper into an 18th century sniper. Her outfit is modeled after the legendary French musetaires, otherwise known as musketeers. Widowmaker’s usual outfit has been replaced with a tunic with fleur-de-lis, and she now has a musketeer hat, complete with a nice feather.

Mousquetaires were known for protecting the royal family and being daring, charismatic warriors. Widowmaker may borrow her dramatic style, but she probably just wants to protect herself.
The Overwatch Archive events normally focus on a single “Archives” PvE mission, which puts four players in scenarios that were important for Overwatchis past. While many fans can expect a new scenario, you need to be careful that the development team works hard to develop missions like these for Overwatch 2 and new content may not be available.
However, new challenges and leather are definitely guaranteed. All the new cosmetics will be revealed when Overwatch The archive event begins on 6 April.
