The new MM-Mei skin in Overwatch puts one of the game’s most peaceful heroes into a costume ready for the octagon. But this skin is a little different from the others. Here’s how to get the MMA skin for Mei in Overwatch.
How to get MM-Mei Overwatch skin
To get Mei’s MM-Mei skin in Overwatch, players have to spend 200 OWL Tokens in the store. Just press R2 or the right trigger on the main menu to get into the store to see the above screen. This skin, like all of the other OWL cosmetics, is only available for a certain time, too. It will be on sale from April 28 to May 11 and then go back into the vault.
This skin is celebrating the May Melee Tournament, which takes place from May 6 to May 8. The top four Overwatch League teams will compete for the title. This skin, in all of its MMA glory, is meant to convey that competitive tone.
Players can get OWL Tokens in a variety of different ways. Players can purchase them. It’s $10 for 200 tokens so this skin is effectively $10. But players can also get coins for free from watching the OWL live to signing up for certain Blizzard.

Blizzard also shared some thoughts on the skin.
“Since the May Melee is the first Overwatch League tournament of the year, we wanted to design a skin that represents the peak of competition,” said Blizzard. “We felt combat sports like boxing and MMA embodied the theme well and used this to begin designing the Legendary skin. Last year we saw others in the community having fun with the May-Mei pun, and therefore felt Mei was the obvious hero choice for a May Melee skin.”
