Overwatch was known for its vibrant characters and their respective skins. You'll be delighted to know that Overwatch 2 is no different. With the release of Overwatch 2, a large number of fans have returned to the fast-paced FPS game. 


Fortunately, gamers who played the previous game do not have to start from zero. Overwatch 2 players receive a few new characters, but they also get to keep the skins they acquired in the first game. 



All your progress and purchases will be carried to your Overwatch 2 account. However, you need to do some extra steps before you can carry your Overwatch skins to the new game. This guide will tell you how to transfer your Overwatch skins to Overwatch 2. 



Transferring Overwatch Skins




The process is fairly straightforward for PC gamers, but console users must take some extra steps to guarantee that all of their skins are transferred to Overwatch 2. We will explain both of these procedures so more people can benefit. 




For Consoles:


If you're playing Overwatch 2 on consoles such as Xbox and PS5, make sure your smartphone is nearby, as it is required for the verification process.


The steps you must take are explained below:


  • Open Overwatch 2.
  • Scan the QR code that appears on our phone.
  • Navigate to the website by clicking the link.
  • Enter the code displayed on your screen.
  • Log in to your account, or create one if you don't have one currently.
  • Log into Overwatch 2 on your console.
  • Press Confirm, and all your skins will be transferred to Overwatch 2. 


After completing these steps, you will be unable to link to another account on the same platform, so double-check that you have the proper one. You can link to another account anytime; however, there is a one-year cooldown period between linking accounts.


This is really a great initiative by Blizzard Entertainment. With this type of cross-progression, you can carry over all your previous progress to any platform. For instance, if you played Overwatch on PS5, you will get all your skins even if you play the game on Windows now.

For PC:


Transferring your Overwatch skins to the new game is extremely easy for PC gamers. There aren't any extra steps here. 


To begin playing Overwatch 2, you must first create or log into your account. After you log in, the game will automatically remember your prior progress and provide you with all of your hard-earned awards.



So if you've been playing Overwatch on PC, you don't need to do anything. Your progress and Overwatch skins will be transferred to the new game automatically.





We hope this guide was helpful for all of the new and old Overwatch players. It is very hard to build a collection of digital goodies in a game like Overwatch, but we don't have to worry anymore, thanks to Blizzard's policy.


Make sure to share this guide with your other Overwatch friends so they don't lose their skins.
