Golden Weapons Look “Terrible” in Overwatch 2 Beta

Fans are hyped for the beta with Overwatch 2 becoming the most viewed game on Twitch but it isn’t all good news.

There have been a number of complaints about an ‘unexpected server error’ in the Overwatch 2 Beta and fans aren’t happy with all of the design choices in the game either.

The thing that Overwatch fans might be most disappointed about in the Beta so far is the new appearance of golden weapon skins. It’s good that all of your skins from the original game will carry over into Overwatch 2, but does it matter if they look worse?

A popular post on the Overwatch subreddit shows exactly how different golden weapons look in Overwatch 2.
