Overwatch 2 key features

A new way to collect cosmetics

With the new Battle Pass system, you’ll be able to unlock themed cosmetic items and complete weekly challenges for unique rewards. 

Instead of relying on Loot Box luck, you’ll be able to choose how you want to invest and progress toward new content throughout each season.

Level up with never-before-seen cosmetics

Overwatch 2 rolls out a new tier of skins called Mythic. These super customizable skins allow you to mix and match various elements of your hero's looks. 

Also coming to the game are a plethora of new cosmetics including souvenirs, banners and weapon charms.

Know your role

Overwatch hero team roles

Each hero is built around a specific team role - knowing where you need to be and what you need to do will be crucial to your team's success. Victory demands teamwork.

Damage

Damage heroes seek out, engage, and obliterate the enemy with wide-ranging tools, abilities and play styles. Fearsome but fragile, these heroes require backup to survive.

Tank

Tank heroes soak damage and shatter fortified positions, like closely grouped enemies and narrow chokepoints. If you’re a tank, you lead the charge.

Support

Support heroes empower their allies by healing, shielding, boosting damage, and disabling foes. As a support, you’re the backbone of your team’s survival.
