Is the Season 1 Battle Pass worth buying in Overwatch 2?

Is it worth the grind?

When starting up Overwatch 2 for the first time, the amount of skins you can unlock is intimidating. Customization is one of the most desirable aspects of multiplayer games, especially when getting lost in the crowd is easy. With the launch of Overwatch 2, players can unlock a Season 1 Battle Pass, which provides 84 cosmetics, and Kiriko, the newest character. Here's our take on whether the Season 1 Battle Pass is worth buying in Overwatch 2.

The Battle Pass is worth buying if you are ecstatic about trying out the new hero, Kiriko, on day one. If you are indifferent about Kiriko's release, we would not recommend buying the Battle Pass. At Tier 55, you can already obtain Kiriko for free, so all it takes is a bit of grinding. If you are an Overwatch veteran, you also have access to the new characters Sojourn and Junker Queen on day one, so you can try out these characters in the meantime.
