Overwatch double XP weekend returns June 8-11 and will be a period in which players who log into the client on their platform of choice can pick up rewards more quickly than usual. Here's what you need to know about the event.


Overwatch Double XP Weekend June 8-11


Starting at 2 p.m. ET Friday, Overwatch players across all platforms will start earning twice the usual amount of experience. According to Blizzard, the bonus will apply to almost all of the usual sources of in-game experience including:


  • Time spent in a match
  • Completing a match
  • Completing consecutive matches
  • Winning a match
  • Backfilling a match in progress
  • Earning medals


The experience bonus will also stack with existing group and IGR bonuses, making for multiplicative bonuses. The only experience source that will be unaffected is the First Win of the Day bonus, which remains at 1,500 experience.


The bonuses stop at 2:59 a.m. ET Tuesday.
