Overwatch weapon skins are tired directly to character skins: The only way to change the look of your gun is to change your entire outfit. But some sharp-eyed Overwatchers on Reddit noticed a couple of very interesting details in the recent Doomfist hero preview video suggesting that Blizzard is working on making separate weapon skins for the game, and possibly even new weapons.
First up, redditor good_samartian noticed that Soldier 76’s gun doesn’t properly match his uniform in the trailer. It has a glowing red coil embedded in the front of the barrel, like a heater coil, which isn’t normally there, as well as front-facing prongs that another redittor, getbackjoe94, said makes it look like a flamethrower. The prongs can be easily seen in this blowup posted by Nyxxic, who also noticed that Sombra’s SMG doesn’t match up either.
