Overwatch 2 had a pretty shaky launch. From long queues to login errors, SMS authenticator not working as intended, etc. the list keeps on going. As a gesture of goodwill, Blizzard is giving away a couple of in-game goodies which is most welcome since farming for these cosmetics can be a pain. There are a couple of cosmetics that you can acquire for free in Overwatch 2: Cursed Captain Reaper (Legendary Skin) and Health Pack Weapon Charm.
Blizzard has made it fairly straightforward to get these in-game cosmetics. To get these, all that you need to do is to log into Overwatch 2 sometime from Oct. 25, 2022 till the end of Season 1 which is Dec. 08, 2022. You have around 2 weeks to claim the items which should not take 5 minutes.
Aside from these rewards, Blizzard has also planned a few Double XP weekends that should help a lot of people reach Level 80 on the Battle Pass. The amount of XP that you get from just playing the game is not enough if you are not reguarly completing different in-game challenges so these Double XP weekends should definitely help get all the rewards on the Season Pass.
Also, here is the official statement from Blizzard on the matter:
We apologize for any issues players experienced around the game’s launch. To help make up for any lost time, we’re planning to run several Double Match XP weekends: we will confirm the specific dates for these soon. We’ll also be giving all players who log in from October 25 through to the end of Season One an all-new Cursed Captain Reaper Legendary skin and a Health Pack Weapon Charm. These items will become part of your collection from the first time you log in during that time window.
And this is how you can get the Cursed Captain skin for Reaper in Overwatch 2. For more help on the game, you can check out our detailed Overwatch 2 wiki page.
