Overwatch 2 is a first-person team-based shooting game with a huge roster of 35 iconic Heroes. For years now, popular shooter games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, just to name a few, have been offering players some free skins or cosmetics to stand out in the lobby. These skins can either be obtained as rewards by completing challenges or purchased via the in-game Shop. Since all the Heroes in Overwatch 2 carry their own special weapon, all of them have special Golden skin for their Weapons. However, acquiring it requires a lot of grind and hours of playtime in OW2. Check out this guide and know how to unlock and get your hands on the Golden Weapons in Overwatch 2.
How to Get Golden Weapons in Overwatch 2
Like many of the unlockable things in this game, a Golden Weapon, which is a special variant of the existing default weapons, needs to be unlocked. As mentioned earlier, you will have to grind really hard in the Ranked matches so that you can get your hands on the Golden Weapons.
