We will be looking at the best skins of our favorite Combat Medic, Baptiste.
Baptiste or Jean-Baptiste Augustin was one of the 30 million kids orphaned by the Omnic crisis. Seeing all the distress around him, Baptiste looked up to Overwatch and enlisted in the Caribbean Coalition as a Combat Medic in order to help the people. After the force disbanded, he joined the mercenary group Talon, without knowing their true intentions.
Baptiste has a Biotic Launcher as his main weapon cable of burst fire DPS as well as healing. Baptiste’s primary ability is Regenerative Burst which heals himself and nearby allies over time. His secondary ability is the Immortality field which prevents the death of critically low teammates. His ultimate ability is Amplification Matrix capable of amplifying damage and healing through it for all his teammates. Baptiste also has a passive ability called Exo boots allowing him to jump to great heights securing advantageous positions.
Overwatch’s has 6 Seasonal events throughout the year: Summer Games, Lunar New Year, Overwatch Archives, Anniversary, Halloween Terror, and Winter Wonderland. Skins that are unique to an event can only be unboxed from that specific events’ loot box and also be purchasable from the store during the runtime of that event. Earning an event loot box is the same as earning a regular loot box. It just needs to be earned during the ongoing event. Overwatch Anniversary is a unique event where you can purchase skins from all seasonal events. Seasonal skins cost 3x their usual price in their release year.

8. Terracotta Medic (Epic) lny21 wk1
Terracotta Medic skin is an Epic tier skin for Baptiste. This was attainable by completing the Week 1 challenge of Lunar New Year 2021.
The Terracotta Army which this skin is based on is a collection of life-sized statues depicting the army of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. They are stationed information at the Emperor’s tomb to protect him in the afterlife. These statues had highly detailed facial features and realistic expressions, and it was often depicted in pop culture that the statues come to life.

His weapon is his default gun but in a black and red theme.
4. Talon (Legendary) arc
Talon is a Legendary tier skin that can be purchased from the store for 1000 credits. But since it is an event skin, it is only available for purchase during Archives or opened from a seasonal loot box.
This skin showcases Baptiste from his time as a member of Talon. After the Caribbean coalition disbanded, Baptiste sought out Talon as they were hiring mercenaries and he had the skillset for it. Unfortunately, later he found out Talon’s true intentions and had quite the organization.
His weapon seems to be a prototype gun developed by Talon for their band of mercenaries.
3. Tropical (Legendary) sg
In the top 3, we have Tropical which is a Legendary Tier skin that can be purchased for 1000 credits. However, it is an event skin and is only available for purchase during Summer Games.

This skin features Baptiste’s gear from the Comic: Baptiste’s Reunion and is in a white medic theme. He has the red cross on his chest and a helmet with the sign as well.
The weapon is in the same white theme with red and blue accents.
1. Funky (Legendary) ann
We have Funky as our favorite skin for Baptiste. The skin goes so well with the character and his voice lines that we had to have it as our #1.
Funky Baptiste is a Legendary tier skin for Baptiste that can be bought for 1000 credits from the store or opened from a loot box. However, it is an event skin meaning it is only available for purchase or be opened during Overwatch Anniversary.
This skin features Baptiste in 1970s attire complete with an Afro. The weapon for this skin is kind of a let-down as it looks very basic with just the word “Groovy” written on the body. Zero points for effort Blizzard.
Best Baptiste skin with the Golden Gun
Of all the skins, the Golden weapon wielded by Tropical Baptiste looks the best as it is fully encased in gold in this version of the gun which looks really amazing.
All the rare Baptiste skins
The Rare tier of Baptiste skins costs 75 credits each and is also commonly attainable in loot boxes. They feature basic recolors of the original skin in a single color. Most of the players who are new to the game and like to play the medic will find themselves starting out with purchasing a Rare skin for the Hero.
