What’s Included in the Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack

The Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack costs $39.99 USD, which can be a big ask for some players. Though, if you decide to take the plunge, here’s what you’ll receive:

  • Space Raider Solider: 76 / Space Raider Cassidy
    • Two brand new Legendary skins for your favorite sharp-shooters.
  • 5 More Legendary Skins
    • Five other Overwatch 1 Legendary skins.
  • Overwatch 2 Season 1 Premium Battle Pass
    • Unlock the Premium Battle Pass and gain instant-access to the new hero, Kiriko.
  • 2000 Overwatch 2 Coins
    • A nice chunk of premium currency to use in the in-game shop.
  • Overwatch 2 Exclusive Player Icon
    • Bragging rights to display on your player profile.
  • 5 Epic Skins
    • Want even more skins? Another five Overwatch 1 Epic skins are included.
  • Overwatch: Legendary Edition
    • For those that don’t yet own Overwatch 1, the Watchpoint Pack includes the Legendary Edition – containing five additional Legendary skins.

Is the Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack Worth It?

Accessing the Season One Premium Battle Pass with an additional 2,000 Overwatch 2 coins already brings the value of the Watchpoint Pack to $30 USD. Throwing in the seven Legendary skins, five Epic skins, and the Overwatch: Legendary Edition (for players that don’t yet own it) bumps that value up to well over $40 USD. Not to mention, the extra 2,000 Overwatch 2 coins essentially pays for the next two season’s Premium Battle Passes should you choose to save them – meaning even more Legendary skins and exclusive content.

In short, if you love Overwatch – yeah, it’s totally worth it. If you don’t own Overwatch and can’t wait until October 4 to jump in and try it, it’s definitely worth it.
