Blizzard has finally given us the option to merge our Overwatch accounts for the sake of cross-progression. You’re going to want to get this done as soon as you can since this will transfer you Overwatch 2 progress to all platforms you play the game on. This guide will show you how Overwatch merge accounts will work.
How to Merge Your Overwatch Accounts?
Start Overwatch 2 on consoles.
Go to Menu and select Options.
Go to the Link Account tab.
Follow the instructions given to you and use your mobile phone to scan the QR code.
Log into your Battle.net account or create a new one.
With your Overwatch 2 console profile linked to your Battle.net account, go to the Main Menu and select Account Merge.
Verify that the account you’re merging is the right one and then confirm the account.
Repeat this for every console you play Overwatch 2 on.
Once you’ve done the above, you’ve successfully merged your Overwatch 2 accounts. Your progress will be shared on every platform you play on so long as your profile is linked to your Battle.net account.
Overwatch 2 requires a Battle.net account to play which is part of its change to becoming a free-to-play title. The upside to this is that it lets you merge your accounts for cross-progression so you don’t have to level up your Battle Pass and collect skins separately.
