The Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack is a thank-you gift from Blizzard to Overwatch's most loyal fans. Inside the Founder's Pack is a whole bunch of goodies to kickstart your Overwatch 2 career. But how exactly do you get the Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack, and what's in it?

Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack Explained

The Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack is a gift of gratitude to everyone that devoted money and time to Overwatch. Since Overwatch 2 is free-to-play, it's only right that the dedicated fans that paid for the original Overwatch receive some compensation.

Contained in the Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack are two Epic Skins, General Doomfist and Jester Sombra. Also included is a Founder's Icon to show off your Founder status. Furthermore, all Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack owners will get access to three new Overwatch 2 Heroes, Junker Queen, Sojourn, and Kiriko, instantly. 

Kiriko is the surprise gift alluded to in the announcement of the Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack. Normally, Overwatch 2 Kiriko is locked behind the Overwatch 2 Battle Pass, but those with the Founder's Pack can play as the Japanese Support Hero right away.

That's everything you need to know about the Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack. If you purchased the original Overwatch prior to June 23, 2022, you can redeem the Overwatch 2 Founder's Pack by launching Overwatch 2 any time before December 5, 2022. This exclusive bag of goodies contains two Epic Skins, a Founder's Icon, and instant access to three of Overwatch 2's new Heroes.
