1 Answer 1


Short Answer : You "never could". These were awarded through Summer Games 2016 LootBoxes. The lootboxes were awarded through regular gameplay and by purchasing them at the time. There was never a way to unlock them directly.

Long Answer from Jeff Kaplan :

  • This answer is false, you never could directly purchase skins with ingame currency. Oct 4, 2016 at 16:58
  • I meant to say by purchasing lootboxes. Precising. Thanks for the insight

  • @DanmakuGrazer is correct, you were never able to purchase those Seasonal items with in-game currency. You could purchase the themed loot boxes, if I remember correctly. Oct 4, 2016 at 17:01
  • I think the answer is still misleading with that "You can't anymore" when the title is "How can I purchase [them]?". Oct 4, 2016 at 17:03

    @MageXy I think limited offers of boxes sell alot more then through the whole year. This is probably not the only event that will happen either.
