Legacy Credits are new types of currency in Overwatch 2 that players once owned in the first Overwatch game. These credits can be used to purchase different items and cosmetics from the game as well. Players can also spend their credits on skins, voice lines and even intro highlights.

However, ever since Overwatch took the free-to-play route, it stopped using the loot box system, making these credits unobtainable in Overwatch 2. So if you have lots or even a few of these credits in Overwatch 1, you can transfer them to Overwatch 2 as Legacy Credits.

How to transfer Legacy Credits in Overwatch 2

Transferring your credits to Overwatch 2 is an automated process that occurs if you have synced your account to Overwatch and Overwatch 2 respectively. Doing this will display your Legacy Credits in your in-game wallet as well as the items you can buy with them.

This is only for players who played Overwatch and actually have leftover credits. If you didn’t play Overwatch, you won’t have any credits to carry over to Overwatch 2 or if you are using a different account to play Overwatch 2.

We hope you’ve found this article helpful in transferring your unused credits from Overwatch to Overwatch 2. Do check out our other guides on Overwatch 2 such as how to play the game with a controller.
