Overwatch 2 brought a lot of new mechanics and little changes from the previous game that can be a little daunting for people that have been off the Overwatch trail for a while. One of the things that did not change is the Golden weapons, as they also existed in the original Overwatch.  This guide will explain how you can get your hands on one of these gold weapons!

There are two ways to get Golden Weapons; you can transfer your old Overwatch golden weapons by merging your account or earn Golden Weapons all over again in Overwatch 2.

These are the steps you need to follow to bring Overwatch Golden Weapons to Overwatch 2.

  • Log In to your Overwatch account using your console.
  • A QR code should pop up that you can scan with your phone.
  • Enter the code you see on your console to log in to your battle.net account.
  • This should merge your accounts.

Note: A glitch is to be blamed if your weapons do not show up despite you merging your account.

The second method is to earn Golden Weapons at a heavy price of 3000 competitive points. Getting this amount of points is no small task, so you’ll have to work hard to achieve this.

These points can only be amassed by playing in competitive lobbies, which can be very tedious for newer/lower-skilled players. Your rank at the end of the season will be the deciding factor in determining the number of competitive points you have.

These are the competitive points you get for every significant position while playing competitive Overwatch 2:

  • Win – 15x CP
  • Draw – 5x CP
  • Bronze – 65x CP
  • Silver – 125x CP
  • Gold – 250x CP
  • Platinum – 500x CP
  • Diamond – 750x CP
  • Master – 1,200x CP
  • Grandmaster – 1,750x CP

An average player can take multiple long seasons to reach the desired amount of competitive points needed for the golden weapons in Overwatch 2. Battle Pass challenges also help reach the CP count faster, allowing you to buy golden guns quickly. 

At the end of the day, though, these are just skin, and they do not impact your gameplay in the slightest. It is best to try to have fun while playing the new Overwatch game and not get carried away with the shiny trophies you get after months of grinding.
