With the release of Overwatch 2, you can now transfer your in-game items like Skins, Gear, Cosmetics, etc. from the original Overwatch. The process, however, is slightly different depending on whether you are on a console or a PC. But how does one do that? In this guide, we have detailed all there is to learn about how to easily Transfer Skins in Overwatch 2.
If you are on a console, you will need to merge your ‘Accounts’ in order to Transfer Skins to OW2. To begin, you need to follow the steps detailed below:
- First, you need to launch Overwatch on your console.
- You should be able to see a QR code and a 6-digit code displayed on the screen.
If you have got Battle.Net app on your smartphone, you can simply scan the QR code. Alternatively, just enter the 6-digit code at Battle.Net.
- Once that is done, you will need to log into Battle.Net with your credentials. If you do not have an account, setting one up takes about 2 minutes.
- Lastly, open up the Main Menu in Overwatch and click on ‘Account Merge’ option. You will be asked to confirm the merger. Simply do so and you will merge your accounts.
For those of you who are on PC, you just need to log into Overwatch 2. You will find all your goodies automatically transferred with having to do anything.
It is a good idea to do so as early as possible, especially for people who spent a lot in the original Overwatch. In addition to transferring your goodies from the original Overwatch, you will also be able to earn some cosmetics in Overwatch 2.
