"We have some updates coming in S3 that we’ll be talking about soon to help address the lack of choice in rewards," Neuss wrote on Twitter. "I’ll keep it vague for now."
The rewards were brought up by a Twitter user who asked if there would be any plans to grant players Overwatch coins by playing the game. Increasing the amount of Overwatch coins gained through weekly challenges was also mentioned by the user.

Overwatch 2 rewards update
Overwatch 2 kicked off back in October 2022 with a new reward system. Instead of loot boxes, the game arrived with an in-game currency that allowed players to unlock skins and other cosmetics. If players wanted Kiriko right away, for example, they had to purchase the Overwatch 2 Season 1 Premium Battle Pass for 1,000 Overwatch coins.
When Season 2 arrived, Ramattra became the most-wanted hero in the game. Like Kiriko, players had to buy the seasonal Overwatch 2 Premium Battle Pass in order to unlock him immediately. There was also the option to get the tempo tank for free, but that required a lot of grinding.

Initially, Ramattra was unlockable at tier 55. Blizzard then moved this down to tier 45 and made some weekly challenges easier to complete.
"Hey all! Quick update on some changes coming to Season 2. After reviewing data for Season 1, we're moving Ramattra in to Tier 45 of the Battle Pass and making a few more weekly challenges easier to complete," Overwatch 2 game director Aaron Keller wrote on Twitter near the beginning of the game's second season.
What will the Overwatch 2 Season 3 reward system look like? Only time will tell as Blizzard is keeping a tight lid on it at the moment. Until then, stay tuned on Esports.gg for the latest news and updates.
