Overwatch 2 new user: how to Unlock Old Heroes, Characters?

In this short guide, we'll show you how to unlock old Overwatch heroes. If you are new to Overwatch game series and you have never played the previous game then you will not get all the Overwatch 1 heroes or characters when Overwatch 2 comes out.


If you have already played Overwatch 1, you will have direct access to all the characters on your account. Only new Overwatch 2 accounts will need to unlock old Overwatch heroes.


According to Blizzard and Naeri, as you can see from the Tweet below, you're going to need to play around 100 games in-game to unlock all characters in the game and get the most out of Overwatch 2.
