Here’s how it works and how to get some of this in-game currency for free.
Overwatch 2 players can now purchase skins with Overwatch Credits through the weekly shop rotation. Read on for details!
How to buy Overwatch 2 skins with Overwatch Credits
To get some Overwatch 2 skins using your Overwatch Credits, head to the in-game shop and scroll down a bit. This takes you to the second "Just for You" section. Instead of using Overwatch Coins to buy these skins, you can spend Overwatch Credits on them.
This section of the shop changes depending on what heroes you like to play in the game as well. Therefore, the weekly shop rotation varies from player to player.
How to get more Overwatch Credits
Overwatch Credits refer to an in-game currency that can be earned by completing a weekly challenge and progressing through each season's Battle Pass. The "Making Progress" weekly challenge, in particular, grants you 150 Overwatch Credits for free if you earn eight progression levels.
As for each season's Battle Pass, it grants Overwatch Credits once you reach particular tiers. For example, the screenshot below indicates that you can earn 100 Overwatch Credits once you reach tier 78.
To progress through the Battle Pass faster and earn these Overwatch Credits, simply play the game. You can also be more strategic about it by completing a few challenges at once. The screenshot below shows how you can complete two daily challenges at the same time. Don't forget to complete limited-time events since they can grant a lot of Battle Pass XP as well.
What's the difference between Overwatch Coins and Overwatch Credits?
Note that Overwatch Credits are not the same as Overwatch Coins. You can view your current balance of Overwatch Credits by visiting the "Challenges" section or by visiting the in-game shop. Your balance is located near the top-right corner.
