5 things we NEED to see in Overwatch 2

Dedicated PvE co-op modes

In Overwatch 2, there should be a separate, well-supported mode dedicated to cooperating with your friends against AI bots. According to the leak, there will be something of this description, but who believes this nutcase? Anyway, back to my article predicated on his rumor.

This mismatch is leaving out a huge demographic of possible fans: casuals.

Casual fans might not play games as often. They may be uncomfortable playing online competitive shooting games, but they do enjoy playing games with their friends, completing objectives, and progressing in skill. These fans are just as legitimate as hardcore Masters ranked players, and it’s time for Blizzard to offer them a great experience, too.

Carry over cosmetics

Please do not make me unlock all my skins again. After all, many fans spent actual money to open loot boxes and get some of those skins. Taking those away or forcing us to re-unlock our favorite skins is a garbage take backsies move and is immoral by playground rules. I have been unlocking skins for four years now and I like the skins I have.

Better stats and a leaderboard

It is a well known fact that Overwatch has absolutely terrible stats that fail to convey important aspects of the game. I could (and will) write an entire article about Overwatch’s stats problem.

Custom colors

Y’all know how the Overwatch League has custom colors for each team?

Like this, see how Mercy’s beam and Brig’s shield are white

Nerf Bastion

  1. Once in bastion mode, he stays there permanently. Choose your spot wisely, Bastion.
  2. If he is in turret mode, he can’t use voice lines. Shut the fuck up, Bastion main.
  3. Make it so that Bastion can’t reload. Once he is out of bullets, he is out.
  4. Bastion’s ultimate gets one shot. It’s a big shot, but only one.
