If you play Overwatch 2 on console such as PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo Switch, then you might be wondering if it's possible to play OW2 with a keyboard and mouse.
In general, the answer is no, you cannot play Overwatch 2 on console with a keyboard and mouse. Consoles block this possibility to guarantee equality between players.
Although, a controller is technically less efficient than a keyboard and a mouse for an FPS, you will have to make do with your controller and your Joysticks to play Overwatch 2.
However, there is a technique that allow you to use a keyboard and mouse on your Xbox or PS5 console. You must have a Xim 4 type adapter. This is a USB hub that allows you to bypass console security and allows you to use a keyboard and mouse on your Xbox or PS5.
Technically, this solution is not prohibited, but it is still an object allowing you to bypass a protection provided by the developers, so we recommend that you do not use it and play with your gamepad especially since the price is relatively high for this accessory. In reality, the Xbox and PS5 consoles offer specific keyboards and mice for their console, this is generally the reason why a PC keyboard and mouse are not recognized by the consoles.
