After many years of success from the famous Hero-Shooter, Overwatch, Blizzard has finally released the BETA Access for Overwatch 2. The hype is unreal as the players can enjoy a rebirth of their favorite game. With Overwatch 2, a lot of things have changed. From the Map pool to the Heroes themselves, there is plenty of fresh content to indulge in. One major change that Blizzard has introduced is the Scoreboard System. This is a new feature that makes tracking the stats of your team pretty easy. In this guide, I will explain everything you need to know about the new Scoreboard System in Overwatch 2.
The Scoreboard System in Overwatch 2 – Everything you need to know
The Scoreboard System is a very important feature in any FPS game. It allows you and your team to track the number of Eliminations, Deaths, Assists, & overall performance of each player on the team. Even though it is an important feature, Overwatch did not have this Scoreboard System. Instead of that, it had the Medals & Fire System. Depending on if you are first, second, or third on a Team for a certain stat, it could be Kills, Damage, Heals, etc., you would be given a Medal of Gold, Silver, or Bronze for those individual stats. If you are doing well, a bar at the bottom of your Health would fill up. Once it is full, it will set your Player Icon on Fire. This can be seen by Both teams which indicates that you are a Player that is Performing amazingly.

This was an average way of keeping track of stats as you could never know exactly how well your team is doing or what the Enemy team is doing. Hence, Blizzard has revamped it and given us the Scoreboard System. As you can see in the Tweet posted by OverwatchNaeri, we can see that the new Scoreboard System in Overwatch 2 is going to enlist the following stats of your team:
- Ultimate Charge
While it will track the same stats of your Enemy’s Team but not the Ultimate Charge. It will also highlight your party members in a different color. This is the perfect way of tracking individual, team & enemies stats during a game. Most FPS games have this type of Scoreboard System in place and now Overwatch 2 will be implementing it. It is currently a barebones version as the game is still in BETA. Over time it will be improved upon and will be the perfect replacement for the Medals & Fire System.
This was all about the Scoreboard System in Overwatch 2. Hopefully, this guide has helped you. You can also check our other guides like Free Overwatch 2 Beta Codes.
