Overwatch 2 Hero Mastery Courses

Tired of losing in Overwatch 2?

Blizzard is inviting players to expand their shooter skills with a series of new Hero Mastery Courses, offering a dedicated single-player mode for honing the abilities of popular heroes in the game. The courses are designed to challenge players' proficiency with heroes like Lucio, Echo, Genji, Mei, and D.Va. Lucio's course is already available, and each subsequent hero's course will premiere weekly for the next four weeks.

In Hero Mastery mode, players can strive for high scores by completing courses quickly, defeating challenging training bots, and collecting emblems along the way. The announcement mentions improvements to the scoring system in each course and a reset of leaderboards, too.

Also, there's a five-week event where players can earn new cosmetic rewards by completing challenges associated with each week's course. Starting from Lucio's launch, subsequent weeks will feature Mei, D.Va, Echo, and Genji courses. These challenges offer a new weapon charm, souvenir, and spray, as well as 50,000 Battle Pass XP.

Note: Activision Blizzard has been sued by California’s Civil Rights Department, alleging violations of California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act and Equal Pay Act. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about the alleged violations within his company. These allegations have all been denied by Activision Blizzard and the company points to additional diversity and inclusion training as past examples of taking the accusations seriously at the time they were made.This case has been settled for $54 million.
