A funny concept to me is how, in the overwatch lore, theres no canon explaintion for the golden guns.
I just imagine it became a trend for them all. Idk maybe D.va got it first for the sake of she felt like it, then Lucio ends up loving how they look so he does the same. Then suddenly its being marketed out as a “thing” THE OVERWATCH HEROES USE GOLDEN GUNS OF EXCELLENCE Blah blah reasons etc. Now everyone’s like wait LETS ALL MATCH. Torb or Sym just go fuckin ham redesigning shit and Talon sees this, thinks it’s lit, does the same.
End result? A bunch of assholes running around warzones with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of unnessasarily shiny gold weapons~
