How To Block & Report Players In Overwatch 2

Encountered a toxic player during a match? You can block or report them in OW 2.

While the SMS protect feature is designed to protect players from toxicity in-game, some players may sneak past that and still cause trouble to others. In such a situation, you can block and report players in Overwatch 2 so that Blizzard takes an action against them if they keep getting reported.

An online multiplayer game like this one can have players who are completely new to the FPS genre and may fumble during their learning phase. There will also be “new” players in OW2 who are already veterans in the genre due to years of playing Fortnite, Valorant, Apex Legends, or CSGO. So, it’s very crucial to be kind to others in the chat, but if someone chooses to be abusive, follow the steps given below.
