It’s not just because of her hair color, it turns out there are a number of reasons why she is purple. In this blog post we will go over the most common theories and see if we can find an answer.
1) She may be wearing a full body suit that is purple with only the face exposed through the mask.
2) Her weapon is also purple and therefore so must be her skin to cover up any part of herself from being shot by enemies.
3) It could also have something to do with how Widowmaker was created in order to be able to mimic other people’s voices as seen here: ((https://ww.youtube.com/watch?v=mjNRkZdFfUg))
Why Widowmaker is Purple:
One of the most common theories about why she is purple, given how wearing a purple suit would cover her entire body and mimic other people’s voices. There are also many hair-color jokes that go with this theory.
This article could be used to answer questions like “why does widowmaker have purple skin?” or “what color is widow maker’s outfit?”. More importantly it can help you get ahead of any memorable information for when your friends inevitably ask these types of questions.
Widowmaker is purple because she’s from Russia, where the flag is red and blue. She also stands out more as a dark figure against lighter enemies in Overwatch than other heroes who are mostly green or brown. Her suit mimics her environment by being either black or light grey to blend into it when still, but looking very moveable with highlights on parts that make motion easier such as joints. It’s like night camouflage for urban environments. This skin was based off of Spiderman villain Venom which explains why they took away his mouth piece since he doesn’t have one in Venom form too (even though some people complained about this).
