Best Soldier: 76 Skin in Overwatch 2021: Ranking all the skins from Worst to Best

We will be looking at the best skins of our favorite vigilante, Soldier: 76.

Jack Morrison was the Strike commander of Overwatch and a high-profile agent leading Overwatch during its peak. Later after the internal conflict with Gabriel Reyes and after the downfall of Overwatch, Jack was assumed dead after the catastrophe. But later it was revealed that he faked his death and wanted to help the world as a Vigilante under the alias: Soldier 76.

Because of his self-sufficiency and huge damage output Soldier: 76 has always been a staple pick as a consistent DPS hero. Since his weapon is hitscan, meaning the moment you put your crosshair on an enemy and shoot, the damage is dealt instantly and there is no travel time like a projectile. This makes him very efficient at shooting accurately and taking down enemies like Pharah and Echo who are becoming more and more popular.

His biotic field also makes him self-sufficient and does not require pocket mercy babysitting him. This also enables him as a good flanker. His ultimate ability is Tactical Visor that makes him a literal aimbot and reduces the reload time. He is extremely popular due to these abilities and he is loved by pros and casuals alike.

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.
