My Tips On Quickly Getting Coins

Well, as for Overwatch 2 players, the fastest way to bag up Overwatch coins is to spend real-life money to buy them from the store. However, not everyone wants to spend money on a game most of the time. So, in that case, I think completing different weekly challenges is the best way to get free Overwatch coins, although it is a slow process.
