Overwatch 2 may be a sequel, but it seems that it loves cop skins just as much as the original game. A brand-new bundle recently dropped in the in-game shop called Constable Tracer, which puts Tracer in a goofy British cop outfit, complete with absurd hat and twirly mustache. The $10 bundle also includes a police badge weapon charm and a spray that shows Constable Tracer emerging from a police box.

Constable Tracer marks the third time Blizzard has released a police-related skin for Overwatch characters. An Officer D.Va skin was introduced in 2017, which put the 17-year-old in a more casual cop uniform and turned her mech into a walking cop car complete with sirens. While it’s certainly tone deaf, it pales in comparison to what they came up with next.

In 2019, as part of its annual Overwatch anniversary event, Blizzard introduced the Riot Police Brigitte skin. Yes, in May of 2019, while America was reckoning with clear and consistent proof that police brutality overwhelmingly affects communities of color and witnessing how protests against that brutality were often met with increasingly militarized police forces, Blizzard thought it was a good idea to give a character with a shield a Riot Police skin. Oof.

Kotaku reached out to Blizzard for a comment regarding the ideology behind this latest cop skin.
