How to get and use Legacy Credits

Legacy Credits are basically the leftover credits carried over from the first game into the sequel. The original Overwatch used credits as the main currency, which players could collect through loot boxes. Although loot boxes and credits have since been replaced by Overwatch Coins and an item shop in Overwatch 2, returning players still have an opportunity to spend their old credits to unlock items instead of wasting them.

New Overwatch 2 players do not have access to Legacy Credits and must use Overwatch Coins to purchase in-game items. However, since Overwatch 2 supports cross-progression, players who have previously played Overwatch on both PC and console can merge their accounts to combine all of their Legacy Credits into one account.

Legacy Credits can be used to purchase various skins, emotes, victory poses, and other cosmetic items for your heroes, including several “Core Launch Cosmetics” for the new heroes Junker Queen, Sojourn, and Kiriko. To purchase items using Legacy Credits, open the Hero Gallery from the Main Menu and select the Hero you wish to purchase items for. Credits can be spent on any item with the white currency symbol next to it. The currency you own is shown in the top right corner.

There’s no way to get more legacy credits in Overwatch 2, so you might as well spend whatever credits you have. Once you’ve used up your Legacy Credits and have nothing else to redeem with them, items that previously cost Legacy Credits will be converted to Overwatch Coins, so don’t worry about not being able to obtain certain items.

That’s pretty much everything you need to know about Legacy Credits in Overwatch 2. Once your credits are gone, make sure you know how to get Overwatch Coins so you can unlock more cosmetics for your heroes. Read our Overwatch 2 page for more help on the game.
