In Overwatch 2, you can get the premium currency, Overwatch Coins, for free by completing the Weekly challenges. Completing all Weekly challenges for a given week can net you 60 Overwatch Coins. This means, in a month, you can get around 240 Overwatch Coins. And considering the fact that a Season in Overwatch 2 is around 72 days long, you can earn a total of 540 Overwatch Coins utterly free in a Season of Overwatch 2.

Here is a breakdown of how many Overwatch Coins you earn for completing a specific number of Weekly challenges in Overwatch 2:

  • Complete four weekly challenges - Reward: 30 Overwatch Coins
  • Complete eight weekly challenges - Reward: 20 Overwatch Coins
  • Complete eleven weekly challenges - Reward: 10 Overwatch Coins

So far, this is the only free method of earning Overwatch Coins in Overwatch 2. Unlike other games, even if you own the premium version of the Battle Pass, you won't get Overwatch Coins in it as a Tier reward. At least, that is what we saw with the pre-release build of Overwatch 2.
