May 2021 marks the five year anniversary for competitive hero-shooter Overwatch, and Blizzard Entertainment is celebrating with a special event that celebrates the milestone, including bringing back all previous Brawl events for the next several weeks.

You’ll have to pay close attention to the Brawl schedule, as Brawls rotate in and out depending on the day. The Halloween Terror event, for example, is available to play in the Arcade on Thursdays, May 20, 27, and June 3, while the festive Winter Wonderland is up on Fridays, May 21, 28, and June 4.

The even features the familiar “play X amount of games” weekly challenges that earn icons, sprays, and epic skins, including the Bird of Paradise skin for Echo and a dapper 8-ball Wrecking Ball Skin.

A new event also means new loot boxes and new skins, including a candy-themed skin for Junkrat, 70s disco look for Baptiste, and catsuit attire for Sombra. Anniversary Loot Boxes can also contain past Anniversary and seasonal items as well. Everyone earns one free loot box by logging in, and you can get another one free by purchasing the 50 loot box bundle.

The Overwatch Fifth Anniversary Event is going on now, and ends June 8. It’s available on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One, and rated T for Teen.
