Overwatch 2 will be a battle pass and fans are absolutely infuriated with the fact that new heroes will be locked behind it. The heroes will enter the battle pass on free track, but that information isn’t that devastating to the fanbase.
The internet went wild today with speculation that the heroes are to be locked behind a battle pass. The idea wasn’t true, they had to buy the battle pass, so they would have access to the new heroes. Soon afterwards, the head of Overwatchs, Jon Spector, tweeted that the heroes will be in the free track of the battle pass.
The entire collection of incomplete details for the Overwatch 2 Battle Pass will be shared at the end of the last few days, so that we can confirm that no new Overwatch 2 heroes will be available on the free Route.

This is problematic for the community, but it’s related to multiple issues. A second is that if a hero is locked behind a specific part of a battle pass then hero won’t be available for play right away, so if players don’t use the concept of overwatch. The need is not more important as heroes aren’t switched.
Overwatch players have legitimate concerns about heroes who are locked behind a battle pass.
Do you have something on Twitter that matters if you don’t meet that certain tier in the battle pass? The community has one reason for that concern, though not everybody plays the game consistently, and that not everyone is likely to be locked out of characters if they miss that seasons battle pass. Spector responded and said that there will be free paths for those heroes to join in the future as well. But fans worry that Blizzard will put them on the pay shop after the season is over and then sprinkle them into other battle passes, causing a long wait to get the hero you missed if you want to pay for it.
Overwatch 2s battle pass system is an incredibly jarring departure from the hero release system used for Overwatch; hence there is a ton of pushback from fans worried that they would now be shelling out a ton of money for their new game.
In Reddit, the user named TheSamuraiGunner pointed out a lot about that Overwatch has always been heavily dependent on hero switches as needed. When you give them a ride, agents are locked up. It’s not necessary to change these to one. Apex Legends is the same way. While there are no special abilities, only cosmetics in other games like Fortnite and Fall.
The latest example that players can draw for characters trapped behind a grind is MultiVersus, a fighting game that locks characters behind a currency. It’s incredibly easy for players to lock up characters; however, players can’t change them like overwatch can. Multi-Versus characters can only be switched between rounds.
There is a lot of fans who still don’t know about overwatch 2s battle pass system.
Fans know that heroes will be locked behind the free version of the battle pass and that there will be two different versions, like in other games where there are free and paid versions. Without a doubt, a battle pass has no actual facts, so fans can speculate on what it will cost, how many tiers the battle pass will take to unlock new heroes and more.
Take a little more to learn more about the play and bring an update to the ongoing updated content, and expand the game to ensure that there is always something new to play.
Overwatch (16). 2022.
What players know is that first season starts on Oct. 4 but it starts on Dec. 6 so that players will have two months to pass the battle pass. Even though this may not be an issue for those who play the game regularly, it might be a problem for those who only play the game here and there and won’t be able to unlock heroes with each passing battle pass, which will make them significantly better.
It’s not nearly one month away and players are still in the dark about many aspects of the battle pass and how it will work. In addition, fans are dying to wait for Blizzard to release more information. But for now fans are mostly mad about the heroes being locked behind a free battle pass. If the developers decide to stay away from the model ahead of the launch day, it’s not likely that Overwatch 2 will continue to be heavily criticized.
