Or is a man with an insatiable thirst for revenge? Whatever he may be, death follows. Many believe the Reaper is hunting and killing former Overwatch agents. Here’s how you can dress like him with The Reaper costume guide.
Cosplay The Reaper with a simple Black Athletic Shirt and a pair of Men’s Compression Pants. Next, wear a Black Hooded Cape so people don’t recognize what approaches them. Finally, put on the Reaper Shoes and the Reaper Costume Props. Now you’re ready start leaving lifeless bodies of your most hateful enemies behind!

Gabriel Reyes, a senior army officer, was Jack Morrison’s commanding officer when both joined Overwatch. However, Jack Morrison was the one inspiring and motivating the team. The UN saw this and made Jack the first commanding officer of the Overwatch team. Reyes didn’t like this. He became more cynical and spiteful towards the organization. And it wasn’t long after a deadly fight with Morrison, that Reyes adopted the persona of The Reaper.
Now, he is barely recognizable as a man in the Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch. His weapons of choice are his trusty twin shotguns. His deadliest move is the “Death Blossom” in which he moves in a whirlwind, emptying his shotguns on enemies at breakneck speed! He lurks through shadows and can turn into smoke, becoming immune to bullets and attacks of any kind. Where he goes, death follows close behind!
