Mirrorwatch is a new event in Overwatch 2 Season 10.

Here is everything you need to know about the OW2 Mirrorwatch event, including the Hero abilities in the mode and more.

Overwatch 2 Mirrorwatch start & end dates

The OW2 Mirrorwatch event began on April 23, 2024, and will be available through May 13, 2024, giving players around three weeks to enjoy the new LTM and complete the challenges for rewards.

Mirrorwatch mode explained 

The Mirrorwatch event mode in Overwatch 2 allows you to choose from a small pool of Heroes that have reimagined abilities. Players will fight with these Heroes in a 5v5 with random maps and standard objective modes.

Heroes in this mode will have completely reimagined abilities, such as Vengeance Mercy’s Soul Burn, Agent Colomar Sombra’s Anti-Virus Ultimate, and Strike Commander Doomfist’s Power Block, which is inspired by Reinhardt’s shield.
