Overwatch 2 season 5 start date and Mythic Tracer skin revealed

Overwatch 2 season 5 starts on June 13, and players who pay for the game’s premium battle pass have a new Mythic skin to look forward to: Adventurer Tracer, who not only looks sharp and stylish, but introduces a new tier-unlocking scheme for the game’s Mythic skins.

Mythic Adventurer Tracer gives the series’ cover star hero a fantasy elf appearance, with an optional cowl and fancy armor that offers a rogue-like look. There are Mythic skins available. Overwatch 2Players can customize their skin to some degree with different colors, armor and accessories.

Blizzard Entertainment revealed Wednesday that Tracer’s Mythic Adventurer skin will unlock across three tiers: level 45 (base), level 65 (intermediate), and level 80 complete. A complete Mythic Skin is typically unlocked by level 80. The level of premium battle passes is typically 45. Overwatch 2 players would unlock a new hero, but season 5 won’t introduce a new character to the game’s roster.

The following features will return to Season 5 instead. Overwatch 2, according to Blizzard’s seasonal roadmap:

  • Questwatch – a brand new event mode for a limited period
  • A Mischief & Magic theme
  • The cinematic unveiling of an unknown hero
  • Summer Games are back!
  • 5v5 mini competitive season
  • “On fire” returns
  • Create Workshop Mode

Overwatch 2 season 5 will also bring some big balance changes — some of them light reversions — to existing heroes, including Junker Queen, Lifeweaver, Mei, and Cassidy. Game director Aaron Keller previewed some of those upcoming changes in a blog post on Tuesday, detailing how Junker Queen will be nerfed slightly, as she’s come to dominate the tank role, especially at higher ranks.

“One of the big changes that we made was to increase the healing received from her passive,” Keller said. “We like this addition to her playstyle, but it makes Queen too survivable, so we’ll be reducing the health she receives from Commanding Shout from 200 to 150 to compensate. We’ll also be increasing the cost of her ult by a small amount since she is getting it at a faster rate than before the midseason changes.”

Keller noted that newcomer Lifeweaver is “not powerful enough to be a solid pick for most players,” and that upcoming buffs will offer “increases to his healing and damage output, a heal on Life Grip, a slightly reduced hitbox, and some quality-of-life changes to Petal Platform.”

The two characters who have lost their crowd control skills with the change from OverwatchThe following are some of the ways to get in touch with us: Overwatch 2, Keller noted that Mei’s Endothermic Blaster will be updated to “apply a much larger slow [effect]” that “will feel familiar to the way her old weapon worked,” and that Cassidy’s magnetic grenade will be updated to deal less damage but also apply an effect that slows and blocks movement abilities.

Finally, Overwatch 2Players can expect to see fewer players being one-shotted in Season 5. This means Widowmaker, Hanzo and other players will be nerfed. Keller explains:

Widow’s damage falloff will change from 70-100 meters to 40-60 meters. Damage falloff will increase as well from 30-50%. The ability for her to kill 200 heroes with less than 50 meters will remain, but it won’t be as devastating. Hanzo has had his damage reduced slightly so he will no longer be able to kill 250 health heroes in one shot. His Sonic Arrow will also be more recognizable by the enemy team—the intent here is to reduce his kills that feel like they come out of nowhere.

Overwatch 2The fourth season, which included Lifeweaver mode with limited Starwatch, as well as a buffed Moira & Brigitte is running until the 13th of June.
