Overwatch Kanezaka Challenge: How to unlock rewards and Twitch Drops

Since the release of Echo back in April 2020, there hasn't been much of new content for Overwatch, Blizzard's popular class-based shooter, and so the release of the newest team Deathmatch map, Kanezaka, is a welcome sight for players hungry for the new content.

The new map comes with a set of new challenges as well, which can earn you nine new rewards, including Kyōgisha Hanzo (a new epic skin), a player icon, and seven unique sprays.

How long does Overwatch Kanezaka Challenge last?

The Kanezaka Challenge starts on 12th January and lasts until the 25th of January.
