Season 3 is now underway in Overwatch 2, and in addition to the usual seasonal refresh, there are a couple of rewards you can earn by watching your favorite Overwatch streamers on Twitch. This batch of seasonal Overwatch 2 drops features Reinhardt, with a spray and a weapon charm that will be must-haves for people who main the iconic tank Hero — or just wish they could handle him.

Here are all of the details on earning Overwatch 2 Twitch drops.

How to earn Overwatch 2 rewards with Twitch Drops

For those who are newer to the ins and outs of the popular livestreaming platform, game developers can offer people rewards for logging a certain amount of hours viewing their titles. In the case of Blizzard, there are frequently in-game cosmetics you can earn by watching streamers playing Overwatch 2. (If you also play a lot of Hearthstone, it works the same with that game and also with World of Warcraft.)

You don’t need to stay on the same channel for the whole time to earn a drop. As long as you’re watching a channel that’s tagged with the Overwatch 2 category, time will accrue towards earning the goodies. The only caveat is that you can’t double up the time by having more than one Overwatch 2 streamer open at a time.

You can earn drops on nearly any viewing platform, including web browsers (for PC and Mac), the Twitch app on Android and iOS, as well as game consoles, smart TVs, or streaming players that have an official Twitch app. However, you can only claim your drops via your web browser or the Twitch app for Android or iOS. You can check whether you’re making progress towards rewards by clicking on your profile icon and selecting “Drops & Rewards.” From here, you’ll see how many hours you’ve watched and how close you are to earning rewards.

After you’ve watched the required number of hours, you need to actively claim your rewards. Again, you’ll want to click your profile icon and select “Drops & Rewards.” From there, click the reward and it should show up in your account within the next 24 hours.

How to link your Twitch and accounts

To earn goodies while you watch, you’ll need to be logged on to Twitch and have your Twitch and accounts connected. This part is pretty straightforward:

  • Log in to your account
  • Open the Connections page in the menu
  • Click Twitch and sign in to link the two services

Once that’s done, you’re ready to get Twitch Drops.
