How to Find and Accept Friend Requests in Overwatch 2

Are you looking to find and accept friend requests in Overwatch 2?

Many players are unable to do so because the “Invitations” tab is missing.

Overwatch 2 was released on October 4, 2022.

Since its release, the game has had multiple known issues.

Some of the known issues are server disconnection, cosmetics, items, currency not showing up, and others.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to find and accept friend requests in Overwatch 2 and why you don’t have the “Invitations” tab.

Why can’t I find invitations in Overwatch 2?

You can’t find invitations in Overwatch 2 because no one sent you a friend request yet.

Otherwise, there is a bug in the game that prevents you from receiving the request.

Do note that the “Invitations” tab will only show up after you’ve received a friend request.

You can find it by navigating to Social > Invitations.

Once you’re there, you’ll see a list of pending friend requests that you can accept or deny.
