You can transfer skins from the original Overwatch to the sequel.
It’s the end of an era for Blizzard’s popular hero shooter as the franchise moves to its anticipated sequel. For those who have been playing the game for years and invested in its ecosystem with premium cosmetics, though, there’s no need to worry about losing them during this big transition. Here’s how to transfer your Overwatch skins to Overwatch 2 if you’re unsure about the process.
Transferring Overwatch Skins to Overwatch 2
This process is automatic after having linked your console account to a Battle.net account (PC players will obviously already have a Battle.net account by default), which you should have already done by now given that Overwatch has now shut down. As stated in Blizzard’s blog article about the process:
“All items in the Hero Gallery across platforms will be present in the merged battle.net account. This includes all sprays, emotes, skins, and everything else in the current Hero Gallery tab in-game. Duplicate cosmetics across platforms will be merged into a single battle.net account.”
As soon as you link your Battle.net account they will appear in-game. Once completed, you do not need to worry about manually transferring skins from one account to the next between the two games.
Over the past few weeks, you should have received an in-game Overwatch message explaining that an account merge needed to occur. If you have not received this for whatever reason, you can still perform the merge manually. Simply follow these steps:
- Boot Overwatch from whichever console you are using.
- In Options, select the Link Accounts tab
- Click Link Account (this opens a browser)
- Log in with your Battle.net account. If you don’t have a Battle.net account, click on Create a Free Battle.net Account
- Accept the permissions to the Battle.net app and click Continue to complete the connection

Yes, the classic base skins from the original Overwatch are all still available in the sequel, so you can switch the new, redesigned versions of your favorite heroes to the old-school look if that is your preference. Again, everything you have unlocked for the heroes from the first game is available in Overwatch 2 once your accounts have been linked.
