How to transfer skins to Overwatch 2
If you’ve already got a closet full of clobber from the first game that you want to carry into Overwatch 2, you’re in luck. All you need to do to carry over your skins from Overwatch into its sequel is connect to your account to battle.net by following the steps below. Just remember, you can only connect one account to battle.net, so if you’re playing across multiple accounts or consoles, choose your highest-level account or merge your accounts before making the leap.
- Start Overwatch
- Scan the QR code on the screen
- Enter the on-screen code to create your battle.net account (you can only do this once, so double-check you have the right Overwatch account beforehand)
- Restart Overwatch
- Confirm merging
Overwatch 2 battle pass skins
Of course, with a free-to-play game like Overwatch 2, there’s a battle pass system which occasionally rewards you with new character skins. With the first season’s premium battle pass, you can grab one mythic skin, three epic skins, and five legendary skins for grinding it out to level 80. If you choose to go for the non-paid approach, you can still grab two new outfits for your characters.
|Tier||Premium or free battle pass||Overwatch 2 skins reward||Character|
|40||Premium||Beast hunter||Junker Queen|
The big draw of the first season of Overwatch 2 skins is unsurprisingly the hardest to get, with eighty levels between you and the mythical cyber demon skin for Genji. It’s worth making the effort to pick it up though, as those who own it can customise it further to suit their own preferences. Oh, and also, it looks very badass.
