Overwatch has launched a new event inviting players to take part in the Mardi Grad Challenge.

Similar to previous Overwatch challenges such as D.Va’s Cola Challenge, Ashe’s Mardi Gras task offers the chance to earn a unique set of rewards.

The challenge captures the spirit of the real-life festivities with an assortment of themed items up for grabs.

Here’s what you need to know about the latest challenge on Overwatch.

How long does the Mardi Gras Challenge last?

Players have been given almost two weeks to stack up on goodies from the Mardi Gras Challenge.

It launched on Mardi Gras day itself on 25 February and will last until 9 March.

How to play the Mardi Gras Challenge

Players simply have to win quickplay, competitive or arcade games to win the unique Mardi Gras prizes.

They can also earn rewards by watching select Twitch streamers during or between matches to unlock even more items.

In addition to the Mardi Gras Challenge, there is also an Experimental Card Game mode featuring three damage heroes, two healers, and one tank, not present in any other game mode.

What rewards can be won in the Mardi Gras Challenge?

Players will need to win three games to earn two unique player Icons, Ashe and B.O.B.

Winning six games will earn a new gold mask spray, while winning nine games will get you the Mardi Gras Ashe skin.

If gamers want to win via Twitch, they can earn a Mardi Gras Wrecking Ball spray from watching two hours of play.

Watching four hours will win two sprays, a Mardi Gras Zenyatta, and another of Torbjorn and Brigitte.

The top prize for those who watch six hours includes Mardi Gras Reaper, Lucio, and McCree sprays.
