Overwatch 2: Season 3 Twitch Drops Guide

We look at all of the new Twitch drops coming to Overwatch 2 Season 3.

With the arrival of the new competitive season comes another round of prizes that fans can win, including a new limited-edition Ashe skin.

Season 3 is giving new and old fans plenty to look forward to. From limited-time events, a Valentine's Day dating sim browser game and a spanking new mythic skin for Kiriko, Blizzard is just starting to unveil everything they planned before the game's release date.

One aspect that Overwatch 2 has always been known for was its colorful variety when it came to loot. Will this season's Twitch drops be enough to catch the eye of long-time Overwatch fans? Will the drops be worth watching hours of gameplay over, or will we get an underwhelming line-up?

Blizzard will be releasing the full set of Twitch drops over the course of 3 months. Sprays, weapon charms and a free skin will be given away in waves, each one lasting 2 weeks. Each wave guarantees 2 prizes for players who watch for a total of 4 hours.

Reinhardt was one of the tanks that received major power-ups this season. The crusader is already seeing much more use as a viable pick in Competitive queues. Recent hero changes were recently rolled out to introduce strong buffs to some of Overwatch's biggest tanks; and a severely limiting nerf for it's most popular healer. These seasonal balance changes serve to address player concerns, introduce new “metas” and to liven up the Overwatch 2 experience. Have to mix things up every now and then to keep things interesting.
