After a rough launch, the Overwatch 2 developers are making good with players with a free skin, weapon bling, and a bonus XP weekend.

Activision Blizzard has been putting out fires since Overwatch 2 launched on October 4. The first days of the new game were tough.

Players have been asking the developers for a solution, sometimes going to extreme and inappropriate measures to express their disappointment.

The developers have clearly heard the complaints and issues and are ready to make amends with the Overwatch 2 community.

Activision Blizzard announces free skin and bonus XP for Overwatch 2 players

On October 11, the Overwatch 2 team has announced a series of rewards that will be available to players as a way to make up for the rocky launch.

Players who join Overwatch 2 during Season 1 will receive a new Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary skin and a Health Pack Weapon Charm.

The developers also assured players that they would be hosting a double XP weekend to help players easily hone the new battle pass.

Unfortunately, it appears that players are not happy with these measures as the replies to the tweet are filled with complaints about the game’s still buggy status or some of the changes.

“What’s the point of double match xp if you have deleted account levels?” one player asked, referring to the change to a battle pass system.

Another said: “Reaper skin is very nice, but no matter how predatory your item store is. Nobody pays £20 for a skin.”

Obviously, for many Overwatch 2 players, there is a way to get the game in good shape. However, the developers are certainly not ignoring their community.
