How to Add Friends in Overwatch 2

Play with your friends.

Overwatch 2, like many multiplayer games, is best played with friends. Teaming up and having a great time with your pals is an excellent way to enjoy multiplayer games, and this is especially true with Overwatch 2. Having friends over a voice call to be able to call out plays, hero swap, and decimate the other team can really up your skill. Here’s how to add friends in Overwatch 2.

How to Add Friends in Overwatch 2

If you’re looking to add friends in Overwatch 2, all you need to do is click on the social tab, which can be found in the main menu or on the top right corner of the screen. A little person icon depicts this.

Click on this to open the social tab and see your friends list. On the right-hand side, you will see an orange box with the words “Add Friend.”

Choose this option, and you’ll be prompted to add your friend’s account name. This is a username with the addition of four numbers at the end. You’ll need this to add your friends to Overwatch 2. Now that the game uses crossplay, everything is unified under the username feature.
