What are the drop rates for the different rarities in Loot Boxes?

Loot Boxes can have items with rarities from Common, Rare, Epic, and Legendary.

What I’d like to know is, with the nature of Loot Boxes, what are the drop rates of Common/Rare/Epic/Legendary items? I’d especially like to know what are the chances to get a Legendary skin from a Loot Box.

For example, in TF2, Valve has made all crates a 1% flat chance to get an Unusual Hat. In CS:GO, it’s the same thing, with a 1% to get an Exceedingly Rare Special Item. In Overwatch, what are my chances of getting a specific rarity from a Loot Box?

Answer

There are no published drop rates as such but here is a link to a Reddit thread which has compiled a list of percentages over 1000 crates by various people compiled into one list. It’s still a small sample size in the grand scheme of things but it’s better than individual stats. To follow the links below you can use the Reddit thread.
