Wrecking Ball: He’s in a crab skin, wants to Piledriver you, and haunt your nightmares forever. Here’s how to get the Overwatch 2 tank’s newest skin.

Blizzard, Christmas is over! You really didn't need to get me anything else! This absolutely nightmarish Wrecking Ball crab skin has been listed in Overwatch 2 since the start of Season 2. However, it only became available for purchase in today's shop rollover as part of an equally-cursed bundle.
But nevermind that, because I bought it immediately and I'm never taking it off. Apologies in advance to anyone that must play against me in Competitive.
Also, we hope you're ready to spend some gold coins for the right to equip is masterpiece.

Horrify your friends and neighbors, scare their pets, and confirm a lifetime a good choices by spending twenty bucks on this monstrosity.
The bundle in question costs 2000 coins, which is about $20. However, you do get too extras with your crab-based purchase.
No, not melted butter. C'mon.
In addition to the Wrecking Ball crab skin you also get an Epic rarity emote, along with a voice line that takes a jab at the classic Disney animated feature The Little Mermaid. Check out that beautiful crab scuttlin' animation below.
