Overwatch 2 brings the battle pass system to the game. Want to know if it's worth your time? Then check out the skins as well as other goodies it offers right here.
Overwatch 2 has finally launched albeit in a poor state, with multiple DDoS attacks and an overabundance of eager players clogging the servers while trying to join in on the free-to-play experience.
For those lucky few that got in, they were greeted with the ability to purchase the season 1 battle pass, a series first after transitioning to the aforementioned FTP format.
Is the Overwatch 2 Battle Pass worth it? Well, it offers plenty of incredible cosmetics, ranging from new ones like weapon charms, to more classic stuff like voice lines, sprays, emotes, and of course, skins.
Overwatch 2 Season 1 Battle Pass Skins
Overwatch veterans are used to the classic tiers of skins which include Common, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. This time, a new tier will be added: Mythic.
Mythic skins are one-of-a-kind special cosmetics for heroes, with one featuring in each battle pass. It's yet unknown if seasonal events will also boast one. They differentiate themselves from other skins by being highly customizable - you can change the color pattern, general design, and more stuff, they also come with unique animations that you won't find on other skins.
For Season 1, Genji was blessed with the first-ever Overwatch 2 Mythic skin, being the last reward for completing the battle pass, sitting at tier 80.
These are all the skins available in the Overwatch 2 Season 1 Battle Pass:
EDM D.va (Legendary) - Tier 1 instant unlock
Tactical Winston (Epic) - Tier 10
Hinotori Kiriko (Legendary) - Tier 20
Commando Sojourn (Legendary) - Tier 30
Beast Hunter Junker Queen (Epic) - Tier 40
Miko Mercy (Legendary) - Tier 50
Sky Centurion Pharah (Legendary) - Tier 60
Forest Ranger Cassidy (Epic) - Tier 70
Cyber Demon Genji (Mythic) - Tier 80
As we've mentioned, the Mythic skins are incredibly customizable. In Genji's case, the Cyber Demon outfit has different and interchangeable styles for his shuriken's, his Ultimate ability blade, tattoo patterns, masks, and color patterns as well.
