Overwatch 2 can be an exhilarating game - when it works. As is the case with plenty of modern games today, it’s not simply a case of picking up and playing the game. Each has a never-ending stream of options and potential issues that could be jeopardizing your game.

A common Overwatch 2 problem seems to relate to a player’s inability to crouch. When you’re trying to avoid gunfire or jump to a higher vantage point as Baptiste, this can incredibly frustrating.

If you’re running into the toggle crouch button not working on Overwatch 2, here are a couple of potential workarounds that could get you back in the battle.

This issue has been reported to not only affect PC players, but also console users on Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch. With the issues seemingly being widespread, it seems to be a problem on a game level rather than the system.

Two common solutions have been confirmed by users who have run into this issue. The first is relatively simple and just requires you to check your settings to see if toggle crouch is enabled in Overwatch 2. If you want to know where to find it, complete the following steps:

  • Load up Overwatch 2.
  • Go to the game’s Options menu.
  • Click Controls.
  • Select a hero.
  • Ensure the Toggle Crouch function is turned on.

Despite this workaround, some users have still claimed to have hit the toggle crouch bug in Overwatch 2. If that’s the case, there is another potential solution that could rectify the problem.

It seems an occasional glitch can happen where the toggle crouch button in Overwatch 2 has its keybinding changed. If that’s the case, you can simply check it by completing the following method:

  • Load up Overwatch 2.
  • Go to the game’s Options menu.
  • Click Controls.
  • Select a hero.
  • Scroll down to Crouch (Toggle) and reassign the button you want.

With either of these workarounds, the toggle crouch bug in Overwatch 2 should be fixed. However, if you are still running into issues, try restarting your game and contacting Blizzard Support for further guidance.
