Overwatch 2 Partners With Microsoft To Bring Free Overwatch Coins

The deal will let players redeem Overwatch Coins through Microsoft Rewards.

The contentious release of Overwatch 2 has slowly been shirked as the player base has eventually integrated into the new sequel. The daily updates and events usually keep the community busy, and a new coalition has further piqued the curiosity of users seeking another method to gain more Overwatch Coins.

If you are unfamiliar, Overwatch Coins are the in-game currency used by the players to buy a plethora of available items, such as skins and cosmetic items that do not alter gameplay. In the past, the in-game currency could only be earned in two ways. Now, the same Overwatch Coins can be acquired for free, without much hassle.

You heard it right; a prominent collab is on the horizon for the Overwatch 2 community. The developers behind the engaging shooter experience are partnering with the American giant Microsoft. The all-new event brings a slew of opportunities for the Overwatch community interested in winning many awards. 

Major Takeaway

  • Overwatch 2 has partnered with Microsoft for a limited time to bring a new way to earn Overwatch Coins for free, which could be bought using real money.
  • The coins can be redeemed through Microsoft Points, which can be won by completing different tasks in the Microsoft Rewards program. The tasks include various things, such as buying games, reaching goals, and even monthly surveys.
  • The collab also brings a whole new custom exclusive Ramattra-skinned Xbox Series X bundle that can be earned by winning through one free entry.
  • The points can be redeemed once plenty has been earned, letting players walk away with hundreds of free Overwatch Coins.

Overwatch 2 players can earn Overwatch Coins for free by redeeming the Microsoft Points. The Microsoft Points can be earned by finishing tasks in the Microsoft Rewards program. The tasks include a myriad of goals, like answering a monthly survey, purchasing a specific game, or searching the wide web using Bing.

The Xbox console users have more options available to them to earn Microsoft Points. All the other available tasks can be viewed on Microsoft’s earn page.

To start earning the Overwatch Coins, opt in for the program through your Microsoft account. 

The Microsoft partnership with Overwatch 2 also brings a whole new version of the Xbox Series X bundle. The exclusive Ramattra-skinned can only be won if you end up being the chosen one.


The free-to-play progression system made it hard to gain Overwatch Coins for the community, causing a wave of criticism to pour into the community upon release. The coins can be attained for free, but the limit is capped at 60 for players who finish every time-consuming weekly challenge each week.

The developers have not addressed the issue, but Overwatch 2 players welcome the new event.

The new event will let users earn Overwatch Coins for free for a limited time. Moreover, it is much quicker than allowing the currency slowly stockpile by completing Overwatch 2’s weekly challenges. The stash will increase faster if the players are willing to participate in both the new collab and weekly challenges.

Overwatch 2 was showered with scandalous vibes for various causes upon launch but cracked all the once-doubted milestones in just a week. The title exceeded its predecessor soon after release, splitting Overwatch’s record in half. Additionally, the game bolted across 25 million players just ten days after its eventful release.
