How to get Overwatch 2 Coins for free

To get Overwatch Coins for free in Overwatch 2, you need to complete the weekly challenges.

For example, if you complete 4 weekly challenges, you’ll get 30 Overwatch Coins.

If you complete 8 weekly challenges, you’ll get 20 Overwatch Coins.

To access your weekly challenges, go to the Main Menu > Challenges > Weekly.

You’ll see a list of challenges that you can complete.

An example of a challenge is to “Win 10 games”.

Another example of a challenge is to “Win 7 games in any Arcade mode”.

You can only earn a maximum of 60 Overwatch Coins per week because there are only 11 weekly challenges.

This means that it’ll take you 17 weeks (4 months) to get 1,000 Coins to get the Premium Battle Pass for free.

Here’s the calculation for it: 1,000/60 = 16.6666666667 ≈ 17 weeks ≈ 4 months.
