[Update: Purchased items missing] Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack not working or players not receiving coins or items issue comes to light
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on October 05, 2022) follows:
Overwatch 2, the most recent installment in the popular saga, has been available for a few hours. You can play the new hero shooter from PC and multiple consoles (PlayStation, Xbox and Switch) for free.
Unfortunately, the launch of the game has not been without problems.
For instance, we recently covered how the Overwatch 1 progress and items is missing for many Overwatch 2 players after merging PC and console accounts.
Now, several gamers are dealing with a launch pack bug. More specifically, they are not receiving the Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack coins or items.
Overwatch 2 players not receiving Watchpoint Pack coins or items
The Overwatch 2 Watchpoint Pack is an optional purchase that comes with multiple skins, in-game currency, and even the Season 1 Premium Battle Pass.
That said, the content of the pack is not available to many players who purchased the pack.
Did anyone else not receive their stuff from the watchpoint pack?
I just logged on for the first time and I don’t have the two legendary skins, the OW coins, or the free premium pass. Anyone know a fox for this or why it could be happening? Thanks.
Overwatch2: watchpoint pack issue?
So I purchased the Overwatch 2 watchpoint pack on PS4 last month but now it says I don’t own it but it took my money anyone else have this issue?
It’s worth pointing out that the Watchpoint Pack isn’t cheap, costing 39.99 USD or £34.99. So, not being able to access the pack content from the start is causing a lot of frustration among players.
The Watchpoint Pack content might be loading slowly on the servers
Reports suggest that the issue is due to the Watchpoint Pack content loading slow, as the items in the pack have been appearing after several hours for some players.
Watchpoint pack rewards are slowly loading into the game!
Everyone relax; I was missing all watchpoint rewards when I logged in first. No coins, no Kiriko, no premium BP.
After playing the game for a bit, now, coins and kiriko as well as the DVA EDM skin have loaded in. I’m sure BP tiers are next.
Update: Premium BP tiers have been unlocked as well
There is still no official acknowledgment of the issue from the Blizzard team. We will update this story as events unfold.
