The debut of Overwatch 2 has been chaotic, to say the least. From requiring players to have to enter their cellphone numbers to many having to wait hours to find a match in the queue. To top it all off a large portion of the rooster had to be removed from the game. Besides promising to quickly patch and iron out these numerous issues Blizzard is offering an apology skin for Reaper.
How to Earn Free Reaper Skin for Overwatch 2
The most recent problem to plague the newly launched Overwatch 2 involved several of the characters being lock-out and unavailable to play. The original plan was only temporarily to remove the two heroes Bastion and Torbjörn. Some players have reported as many as a dozen heroes were missing.
This particular issue stings even more since many new players are expected to complete a set amount of matches before even unlocking these heroes.
To apologize for all the unexpected problems players have dealt with so far in Overwatch 2 Blizzard is offering a few free items. Between Oct. 25 and the rest of Season 1, players who log on to Overwatch 2 will receive free items. Players will earn the all-new legendary Cursed Captain Reaper skin and a health pack weapon charm immediately after signing in during the time window.
Additionally, Blizzard revealed that a series of double XP will occur shortly. The specific dates for these events were not mentioned. Blizzard has its work cut out for them with a growing list of issues to tackle. One free skin will likely not satisfy all those who have been inconvenienced by the messy experience so far in Overwatch 2.
