Overwatch 2 gets double XP weekend

To get double the Overwatch 2 XP, simply enter the game, join some matches, and complete them. This XP is for leveling up the Overwatch 2 Season 6 Battle Pass. Reaching certain tiers rewards players with either free or premium items.

The free version of the Season 6 Battle Pass features items such as the epic Dark Iron Torbjorn skin, Illari Llama Pajamas name card, D.Va All Systems Go voice line, and more. Meanwhile, players with the paid version of the Battle Pass can get skins such as the legendary P-900 Warhead Pharah, legendary Llama Pajamas Illari, and mythic A-7000 Wargod Ana.

Those who have already reached level 80 of the Overwatch 2 Season 6 Battle Pass still have time to aim for the prestige tiers. These offer unique player titles that go with the seasonal theme.
