What’s New In Overwatch 2: Battle Pass, Challenges, How To Transfer Skins, And More

After spending the last few weeks playing Overwatch 2, I’ve learned quite a few tips and tricks that changed how I played going forward. This includes what the difference is between Overwatch 2’s battle passes, how to level up your battle pass quickly, how combat has evolved, and how Overwatch 2’s new heroes fit in with the old crew.
