If you are browsing Overwatch 2 like me, you may be wondering what all the numbers mean. Don't worry, as the entire currency system in Overwatch 2 is somewhat chaotic. Overwatch 2 has attempted to implement various changes and transitions between older and newer currency systems, leaving many players confused.

As of now, there are six different types of currencies available in Overwatch 2, which are:

CurrencyPurpose
Overwatch CreditsFrom the prequel, Overwatch, you can use this currency to buy cosmetics for your hero in the Hero Gallery, but only a few select items are available to purchase in the shop using Overwatch Credits.
Overwatch CoinsThis is the primary currency used to purchase the premium Battle Pass and items from the shop or cosmetics for your hero via the Hero Gallery.
Overwatch League TokensYou cannot earn these for free; however, you can use real money to buy these tokens, which can be used to unlock special cosmetics during events like the Overwatch League (RIP) esports event and others. Since these events no longer occur, there is currently no use for these tokens.
Legacy Competitive Points (CP)Carried over from a previous season's earned bank of points, these could be used to buy golden weapons for use in-game. As the name suggests, these are legacy points and cannot be purchased.
Competitive Points (CP)These are the follow-up to the legacy competitive points, which can only be earned through competitive modes to unlock season-specific weapons, like the Jade weapon skins.
Mythic PrismsMythic Prisms are the latest addition to the Overwatch 2 in-game currency system, allowing players to acquire or upgrade exclusive and rare hand-picked skins during season 10. These skins can be obtained by progressing through the Premium Battle Pass or by purchasing them with real money.
