How to add friends on Overwatch 2

There aren’t many steps involved in this process and Overwatch 2 players will just need to go to the Socials tab to accept and manage friend invites.

Some titles make it an absolute chore to sort out friend requests, but Blizzard has managed to keep it short and sweet in the Hero shooter.

For some more precise instructions, check out the steps below:

  1. Make your way to the Overwatch 2 home menu screen.
  2. From there, go to the game’s Socials tab.
  3. You now need to click on where it says Invitations.
  4. Once you’ve done that, you now be able to see any Pending Friend Requests.
  5. If you want to accept any, press the action button on the tick.

The same rule obviously applied if you’re not looking to welcome any new friends as you’ll just need to choose the cross-selection instead.
