Complete Daily and Weekly Challenges

Currently, there is only one real way to grind XP to help you power through Overwatch 2, which is simply to complete daily and weekly challenges.

Each day, Overwatch 2 will provide players with three different daily challenges that give the usual kind of requirements to complete in live service games: Get so many kills with X class or Deal X amount of damage.

Each tier of the Battle Pass requires 10,000 XP to acquire rewards and progress to the next Battle Pass tier.
