How To Get And Equip Souvenirs In Overwatch 2
The developers of Overwatch 2, Blizzard Entertaiment, took great care about the appearance of the game, characters, maps and so on. There are even more different cosmetic things since the first game. One of the innovations is souvenirs. They are a 3D item, which is quite beautiful, detailed, and groovy. Like other cosmetics, these souvenirs do not give players any competitive advantage, functioning similarly to emotes.
Many players were surprised to see a new cosmetic item in Overwatch 2 and didn't know what to do with it. But in fact, it's easier than it looks.
Here are the ways to get souvenirs in Overwatch 2, as well as how to equip and use them.
How To Get Souvenirs In Overwatch 2
Since souvenirs are new items in the game, they are almost completely tied to the battle pass. Players have the opportunity to earn a variety of merchandise related to the characters and the overall Overwatch story. Better yet, buy a Premium Battle Pass to get more unique content.
But Blizzard Entertaiment has also introduced an alternative souvenir option in Overwatch 2. You can get souvenirs as a Drop by watching Overwatch streams on Twitch. To do so, you need to watch one or more Overwatch 2 streamers for a certain number of hours. It's worth noting that such promotions are not regular, but usually take place for big events.
Select souvenirs are also available for direct purchase via the hero information pages. Still, they can only be bought using Legacy Credits, which transfer over from the accounts of original Overwatch players. These are the only souvenirs that players can obtain this way, and it is unclear if they will be available for purchase in other currencies later.
How To Equip Souvenirs in Overwatch 2?
As in the first part of Overwatch, all cosmetic items, including souvenirs, can be equipped via an individual hero’s information screen accessed via the main menu. You can equip as many souvenirs on one hero as you want. There are no restrictions. But you can only wear one at a time. Keep this in mind when choosing a souvenir for your favorite hero in Overwatch.
