Overwatch 2 players aren’t happy with the amount of coins they earn to buy the game’s more lucrative skins and want Blizzard to add the currency as a Battle Pass reward.

Like many games, Overwatch 2 has made the decision to implement a Battle Pass instead of the original game’s outdated Loot Box model to make the series more profitable and thereby add more content.

While there are plenty of fun unlockable items in the Battle Pass, with new heroes and skins being the big inclusions, not every cosmetic is available and some require coins to purchase.

With the only way to earn coins, limited to challenges and real money, players are getting tired of it and wanting more ways to acquire the currency.

In a series of posts on the internet, Overwatch 2 fans have come together to call for changes to the way coins are earned, with the Battle Pass being a common suggestion.

In a post on Reddit, user ‘HardVegetable’ made a mock-up of the Battle Pass with old credits as unlockable.

Players liked the idea and said they preferred the concept of earning legacy credits over unlocking “souvenirs” – a new cosmetic item in OW2.

In other discussions, players suggested that weekly challenges are worth more coins or halve the price of skins.

“Not making money from Blizzard with Loot Boxes is bad, but also pricing Blizzard too much and not giving a way to earn a decent amount of currency for free is also bad, right?” noted one player.

It’s still unclear if Blizzard has any plans to change the Battle Pass structure for Season 2, but given that the company changed its texting requirement following backlash, it’s clear they’re open to re-evaluating their decisions. .
