Get Double XP On Overwatch This Weekend

Overwatch is celebrating its one year anniversary and like with any relationship it’s always good to give something back. That is exactly what Overwatch is doing this weekend as Blizzard have announced that they will be holding a double XP event this weekend.

This event will run from 1am GMT on Friday until 8am Tuesday morning. The bonus will apply to nearly all aspects of the game. These include:

  • Time spent in a match.
  • Completing a match.
  • Completing consecutive matches.
  • Winning a match.
  • Backfilling a match in progress
  • Earning medals

The only thing that isn’t affected is your First Win of the Day bonus, that bonus will stay at 1500 XP.


Double XP is always a nice bonus and is a treat for players new or old. If you are new to Overwatch then this could give you that boost that you need to get to level 25 and into those exalted competitive matches. If you are a veteran then this could help set you on your way to prestiging once more.
