The release of Overwatch 2 brings a satisfactory conclusion to the hugely successful Overwatch 1 which has amassed millions of players for the FPS franchise. Overwatch 2 is once again merging all Overwatch players into a new and improved free-to-play online FPS game where both new and old players battle it out.
Older players who have been playing the game since Overwatch 1 must be wondering what will happen to their old skins and credits. Well, the developers wouldn’t let your credits go to waste, so they’re letting you keep them in Overwatch 2. And in this article, we’ll be showing you how to transfer your Legacy Credits to Overwatch 2.
Do Overwatch Legacy Credits Transfer to Overwatch 2? – Answered
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 Battle.net 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 Battle.net account to play Overwatch 2.
