The first season of Overwatch 2 is drawing to a close, and you only have 12 days or so to get to level 80 of the premium Battle Pass and unlock that sick Cyber Demon Genji Mythic skin. I’ve snagged it on my main account and only have a few levels to go on my secondary before I unlock it. I’ll get there a bit faster thanks to the Double Match XP weekend event that’s now live.
This is the third Double Match XP weekend Blizzard has offered as part of a makegood for all the launch problems. You can also claim free bonuses like a Legendary Reaper skin, a health pack Weapon Charm and highlight intros for Junker Queen and Kiriko just for logging in. There are Twitch drops available at the minute too.
This latest Double Match XP weekend will run until Monday at 2PM ET. So, if you’re looking for downtime while visiting family (or they’re visiting you) for Thanksgiving and you have a PC or console that can run Overwatch 2 handy, now is a good time to hop in and crank through some Battle Pass levels.
As a reminder, Season 2 of Overwatch 2 will get underway on December 6. Blizzard will reveal many more details in the coming days, starting with a Ramattra gameplay video on Saturday.
