Overwatch 2 has a ton of cosmetics for players to unlock, but there is arguably none finer than the game’s array of Golden Guns. So let’s find out how to unlock Overwatch 2 Golden Guns.

On top of all the features in Overwatch 2, Blizzard’s free-to-play shooter, there are also Golden Guns for players to unlock and equip.

They are merely cosmetic items that have no influence on the game’s meta or gameplay itself, but their cool appearance is desired by many, and our guide will help you unlock them for yourself in Overwatch 2.

Between trying to unlock Mythic Skins and completing the Battle Pass, Overwatch 2 players have plenty to do in Blizzard’s long-awaited sequel as the game is progressing well through Season 1.

So without further ado, here’s our Golden Gun guide for Overwatch 2 and how to unlock them.

Unlocking Golden Guns in Overwatch 2

In order to unlock any of Overwatch 2’s Golden Guns, players will have to accumulate a decent amount of Competitive Points first – 3,000 to be exact.

The good news is that they don’t require any real money to obtain, just some good honest hard work as it could take you a while.

There’s no other way about it, to rack up Competitive Points you’ll naturally need to play the Competitive variant of Overwatch 2, a lot, to be eligible for points. At the end of the season, your final rank will determine how many you receive in the game.

Here’s the name of each rank and its accompanying points:

  • Top 500: 1750
  • Grandmaster: 1750
  • Master: 1200
  • Diamond: 750
  • Platinum: 500
  • Gold: 250
  • Silver: 125
  • Bronze: 65

As well as seasonal points, every match of Competitive you play will reward you with 15 points for a Win, and 5 points for a Draw.

Depending on how much you play and what your skill level is, it could potentially take a season or two, maybe more, to unlock a Golden Gun for the character of your choice.

Just to recap:

  1. Play Overwatch 2 Competitive Mode.
  2. Ensure you’re playing as much as you can to maximize your CP returns.
  3. Receive your end-of-season points.
  4. If you’ve still not got enough then carry out playing more matches in Competitive.
  5. Once you reach 3,000, redeem them for a single Golden Gun.
