Overwatch 2 Souvenirs are a new way to express yourself in Overwatch. These collectable Overwatch 2 cosmetics don't offer any in-game bonuses, but they are great as a way to tease the opposition or cheer up your teammates. With that said, let's review how to get Souvenirs in Overwatch 2.

What Are Overwatch 2 Souvenirs?

Souvenirs are a brand-new cosmetic available for the first time in Overwatch 2. Souvenirs function like Emotes and are equipable to your Social Wheel. You can activate a Souvenir in-game to show it off to your teammates and opponents.

Souvenirs are light-hearted cosmetics typically tied to Overwatch lore or memes. For example, you can taunt your opponents with the GG or Salty Souvenirs or show love to your allies with the Heart Souvenir.

There are a couple of different ways to get Souvenirs in Overwatch 2. The most obvious is via the Overwatch 2 Battle Pass. Souvenirs are awarded periodically throughout the Battle Pass as you advance through the tiers. Alternatively, if you're an Overwatch OG, you can purchase Souvenirs in the Hero Gallery with Overwatch 2 Legacy Credits

In the future, it may be possible to earn Souvenirs in Overwatch 2 through promotions or like how you can get Overwatch League Tokens free in Overwatch 2 by watching Overwatch League matches on YouTube. However, for now, at least, levelling up the Battle Pass and spending Legacy Credits is the only way to unlock Souvenirs.

You can equip Souvenirs in Overwatch 2 by navigating to the Hero Gallery and selecting the Hero that you wish to fit with Souvenirs. From there, equip the Souvenir as you'd equip an Emote, Victory Pose, or any other type of cosmetic. While there are no restrictions on which Heroes can use which Souvenirs, you can only equip one Souvenir to a Hero at a time.

That's about all there is to know about Overwatch 2 Souvenirs. Express your feelings in-game by using your favourite Souvenirs.
