During our most recent @playapex collection event there was a bug with Wattson's Electric Blue skin that caused her textures to go missing.
We've since shipped the fix and fully refunded anyone who bought the skin before the fix went live. Refunded players keep the fixed skin. pic.twitter.com/erN18fN9Xn
