Overwatch 2 Season 1 skinsBlizzard

When Overwatch 2 goes live on October 4, so too does the Season 1 battle pass, the first of its kind for Blizzard’s popular hero shooter. So before it lands, we’ve got a complete rundown here covering what’s included, from Mythic Skins to Kiriko and everything in between.

Times are changing for Overwatch fans around the globe. After six years with the original, the sequel is just days away from dropping fresh content, implementing new systems, and forever altering the state of the game.

Among the new additions in Overwatch 2 is the previously leaked battle pass model. With the switch to free-to-play, Blizzard is now adopting a seasonal structure, meaning a wide range of items will be locked behind battle pass tiers.

Overwatch 2 Season 1 battle pass Price

When it comes to accessing the Season 1 battle pass, players have two options. First is the free route, wherein, you don’t have to spend a dime. Just by playing the game you’ll automatically progress through free battle pass tiers and unlock select items.

However, if you’re looking to get everything you can out of Season 1, you’ll need to purchase the Premium battle pass. This comes in at 1,000 Overwatch Coins, roughly the equivalent of $10 USD. This in-game currency can also be earned through weekly in-game challenges, so you can always grind throughout a season and purchase the Premium track towards the end to retroactively unlock everything.

Kiriko joins Overwatch 2 through the Season 1 battle pass

Headlining the Season 1 battle pass in Overwatch 2 is Kiriko, the game’s newest Support hero. Joining the fight alongside Sojourn and Junker Queen, Kiriko rounds out a trio of new additions after a two-year dry spell.

While Kiriko is tied to the battle pass, she can be unlocked in a number of ways. First up is the inexpensive option in which, Kiriko can be acquired for free. You just have to reach Tier 55 on the free track in order to claim the hero.

If you’d rather add her to your roster right away though, buying the Premium battle pass grants instant access. Thus, you can skip the lengthy grind and begin using the new Support right away for $10 USD.

Mythic Skins debut with Cyber Demon Genji in Season 1 battle pass

Also debuting in the Season 1 battle pass is the first ever Mythic-rarity Skin in Overwatch 2. First unveiled back in June, this new range of Skins is set to allow for a deeper level of customization than anything before it. Unlocking the Skins themselves is just the beginning as players can apply unique variations and alter colors to design their own look.

The very first Mythic Skin, Cyber Demon Genji, is on its way in the Season 1 battle pass. This design completely alters the hero with new hair, glowing tattoos, and a completely different outfit.

In order to grab the Cyber Demon Genji Mythic Skin for yourself, you’ll need to advance through to Tier 80 at the very end of the Season 1 battle pass.

Prestige Tier titles available at the end of Season 1 battle pass

If you manage to clear all 80 Tiers in the Season 1 battle pass, there’s still plenty more to grind for. While all cosmetics will now be yours for the season, you’ll now have access to Prestige Tiers that come with unique titles to unlock.

By advancing through these more challenging Tiers, you can unlock new Prestige Tier titles and apply them to your profile. In doing so, you’ll have a unique name or phrase attached to your account from that point forward.

Making the flex that little bit sweeter, each season comes with its own set of Prestige Tier titles. Meaning once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. So if you claim a rare name for your account in Season 1, others won’t be able to grab it for themselves once Season 2 arrives.

How to level the battle pass fast in Overwatch 2

The fastest way to level your battle pass up in Overwatch 2 is to complete challenges. There are plenty, ranging from daily, weekly, season, and many more so you shouldn’t end up running out of ways to power through your battle pass.

Since you’ll get XP for every game you play, it just makes sense to work towards some of the challenges, which each give you a great amount of XP towards the battle pass itself. In fact, completing three daily challenges grants you 9,000 XP, just 1,000 of gaining a new level. This along with playing matches in general is likely to get you to the next level quickly every new day you play.
