Overwatch 2 adds yet another currency in Season 10, and players are getting overwhelmed

I'm throwing coins at my screen in the hopes of making it more simple.

There are a number of currencies already in Overwatch 2 that are obtained in different ways and used for different purchases in the game. However, developer Blizzard decided to confuse everyone with a new one, the Mythic Prisms, in Season 10.

To clarify, Mythic Prisms are the newest currency in Overwatch 2 used to purchase Mythic skins from the shop. Previously you could only get specific skins when they were a reward in the current Battle Pass. I see it as a positive change since this means you can, instead, purchase whatever Mythic skin is on offer at the OW shop. You have more freedom and more options to choose from.

However, this is now the seventh currency in Overwatch 2. Just like Redditor u/SettingRegular4289 said “So now we got legacy credits, gold points, emerald points, overwatch league points and Prims. So many different types of currency in the game.”

Meanwhile, Bobbie_Sandtets said “It's like a mobile game," with ZenkaiZ echoing this sentiment sarcastically saying “only need about 6 more currencies to be an average cell phone game.” While I do think that two or three currencies could be fine, the current situation only serves to confuse players. And having to find information on every single one is like a treasure hunt. This entire process is very unintuitive, especially for new or returning players like myself from days of Overwatch 1.

The confusion is made even worse with Mythic Prisms, which you can get in two ways, but only the more expensive way is linked in the Hero menu. You have to already know what you're doing if you want to avoid paying extra for something you can get differently.

How to get Mythic Prisms in Overwatch 2

The easiest, and cheapest way you to get Mythic Prisms in Overwatch 2 is through the Premium Battle Pass. You can purchase a Premium upgrade for $10 and you'll get a total of 80 Mythic Prisms if you complete a single Battle Pass. This means you'll have enough for one skin, which is 50, as well as leftovers for when the next season's pass rolls around.

However, if you don't want to wait that long until you can get several skins, then you can also purchase the Prisms for real-life money. There are two ways to do so.

You can click on all of the currencies in the top right corner, or you can go to a specific character Mythic skin and click on the Unlock button. Both of these will take you to the same purchase menu, where you have three different Mythic Prism Bundles to choose from.

  • 10 Mythic Prisms - $9.99
  • 40 (+10) Mythic Prisms - $39.99
  • 75 (+25) Mythic Prisms - $79.99

Once you complete the purchase, you can unlock whichever skin you want in the Shop and then join the queue to show it off. However, if you have the patience, I'd just wait and complete the Battlepass. It's worth noting that the game doesn't show you the prices until the very last step of purchase, and there might be a reason for that — they're not cheap. Especially when you consider what you can purchase with them (only two skins with the most expensive bundle).
