Overwatch 2 attempted to implement various changes and transitions between older and newer currency systems, leaving many players confused.

From now on, there is six different types of currencies available in Overwatch 2 which are:

Overwatch Credits From the prequel, Overwatch, you can use this currency to buy cosmetics for your hero in the Hero Gallery, but only a few select items can be purchased in the shop using Overwatch Credits.
Overwatch Coins This is the main currency used to buy the premium Battle Pass and items from the shop or cosmetics for your hero through the Hero Gallery.
Overwatch League Tokens You can't win these for free; however, you can use real money to buy these tokens, which can be used to unlock special cosmetics during events such as the Overwatch League (RIP) sports event and others. Since these events no longer occur, there is currently no use for these tokens.
