Overwatch 2 players have spotted a problem with Lucio's Snow Fox skin

Overwatch 2 Lucio

Overwatch 2 players have identified a glitch with a Lucio skin that unwittingly lets other players see where they are.

u/FidgetSpinnetMan recently took to the Overwatch subreddit to report the issue, including an image that shows how Lucios Snow Fox skin and its icy visual effect can be seen from long distances across the map – including through walls (thanks, PCGN).

“BUG REPORT: I was playing a game and I noticed that the enemy Lucio was visible through the walls,” they wrote in a post that has received two thousand upvotes. “He used the Snow Fox skin and the weapon has smoke coming from it and it seems to be visible through the walls. Dont use this skin because it gives you a positional disadvantage at all times.”

The post has generated quite a discussion, with some commenters saying they first reported the issue when Overwatch 2 launched. At the time of writing, however, it doesnt seem as though Blizzard has acknowledged the problem, let alone fixed it.

On the plus side, the skin is no longer available to buy, so the issue only affects players who have brought Lucios Winter Wonderland skin with them when moving from Overwatch to Overwatch 2. But given players are reporting similar issues with other skins – such as Reins hammer – it may be something to bear in mind if youre jumping into the action any time soon.

ICYMI, Overwatch players have taken to social media to ask why retailers still have Overwatch on sale when the game is no longer playable. As u/raistwalls1 exemplifies on the same Overwatch subreddit, retailers still have copies of Overwatch for both PS4 and Xbox One on sale – on this occasion, its priced at $34 – even though the game essentially no longer exists.

“As things stand today, Overwatch 2 feels like yet another service game where unlocks lead off into perpetuity, purely because money has to be made,” Edwin said in Eurogamers Overwatch 2 review. “Its got its eyes on the horizon, and the same old spring in its step, but Im not sure it has anywhere to go.”
