Which Torbjorn skins are the best?

Torbjorn Lindholm is one of the most recognizable characters of the Overwatch cast. Famous for his boisterous beard, trusty turret and epic ultimate, Molten Core, every player should try Torbjorn at least once.

The question is, which Torbjorn should you bring into battle? Blizzard has added a fair amount of skins for the loveable dwarf, but only ten can live up to the name that is Torbjorn. Continue reading to see the best Torbjorn skins Overwatch has to offer.

10. The Kronor

The Swedish dwarf isn't messing around

Coming in at number ten is Torbjorn’s Kronor skin, modelled after the flag of his homeland, Sweden. While it may not be the most glamorous or intricate skin available, the Kronor is the closest players can get to Torb’s real background.

What makes this skin awesome:

  • You can represent Torbjorn’s culture while trashing the enemy team
  • The bright blues and yellows assure that your teammates, hopefully your healers, never lose sight of you on the battlefield
  • The Kronor is an Epic skin, so it can be acquired more easily than most of the top skins

How to get The Kronor: Can be purchased anytime from the cosmetic menu for 250 credits.

9. Zhang Fei

Ancient strategies of war? Or just one angry Torbjorn?

Next up is Torbjorn’s Zhang Fei skin, which combines the glory of dwarven engineering with Chinese military history. Clad in ancient Chinese equipment, this skin will take players backward in time, but forward to victory!

What makes this skin awesome:

  • Can get a little taste of the past while playing, as Zhang Fei was a real Chinese military general during the Han Dynasty
  • Matches with other hero Lunar New Year skins, allowing for maximum group roleplay
  • Gives Torbjorn’s classic claw hand an epic dragon design

8. Cybjorn

Cybjorn chilling out after wreaking havoc at the enemy spawn point

Introduced during the Overwatch Anniversary event, Cybjorn gives the classic character a total robotic makeover, turning him more machine than dwarf. While Torb is normally skeptical of machines due to his time during the Omnic Crisis, Cybjorn shows that even the most stubborn dwarf can have an open mind.

What makes this skin awesome:

  • Cybjorn can assert his dominance over other omnic and human characters due to being the ultimate hybrid of both
  • Comes equipped with an unusual cable based beard design
  • For nailing precise headshots like only an intelligent AI could

How to get Cybjorn: Players can pick up this skin during the Overwatch Anniversary event for 1000 credits.

7. Blackbeard

Blackbeard dominating the objective before making off with the loot

Based on the mighty terror of the Caribbean, Torbjorn’s Blackbeard skin gives you the opportunity to play as the legend himself. Enemy players will sail away in fear as you plunder victory from right under their noses.

What makes this skin awesome:

  • An eye patch, pirate hook and burly chest make for a pirate skin that will steal your heart
  • Combined with other hero pirate skins, Blackbeard can make the “Pirate Ship” meta come to life!
  • Changes many of Torbjorn’s basic lines to be pirate themed, letting players truly live the life of a salty sea dog

6. Deadlock

Deadlock Torbjorn thinking about freedom on the open road

The Deadlock skin might just be the most realistic skin that Torbjorn has to offer, only requiring a working Harley to complete the package. Rev your engines and hit the pedal, because players using Deadlock will leave their enemies in the dust of Route 66.

What makes this skin awesome:

  • When activating a speed boost with Molten Core, Torbjorns equipped with Deadlock might feel the winds of the highway blowing through their beard
  • Turns Torbjorn’s classic hammer into a socket wrench, which looks great whether you are smacking turrets or enemies
  • Donning rugged leathers and metal studs, enemy players will know Deadlock Torbjorns are not here to play around

5. Viking

Viking Torbjorn taking you back to another era

Shown off during a fictional Overwatch Halloween party, Torbjorn’s viking skin is a perfect match for the surly dwarf. Despite being a Halloween costume, Viking Torbjorn is likely what the Swedish dwarf would look like in a medieval fantasy setting, adding an RPG flair to a FPS game.

What makes this skin awesome:

  • Torbjorn’s classic lines change to match his Viking appearance, allowing for players to vocally promote their fantasy dwarf roleplay
  • Bring the wrath of Valhalla on unsuspecting enemies using his hammer, which is modelled after the same one Thor uses
  • Has a series of hilarious lines if used during the Junkenstein’s Revenge gamemode

You better watch out. You better not cry. Santaclad is coming to the objective

A skin that Torbjorn was made for, Santaclad is the best way to ring in the holiday season while playing Overwatch. Get your list and check it twice, because you want to make sure this skin is added to your collection ASAP.

What makes this skin awesome:

  • As Mr. Claus himself, players can spread cheer and good tidings to their teammates 
  • His reindeer themed turret is perfect for combining Santaclad with the “Ride ‘Em” highlight intro
  • Especially good at doling out coal (eliminations) to very naughty players (the enemy team)
