Overwatch 2 adds yet another currency in Season 10, and players are overwhelmed

There are a number of currencies already in Overwatch 2 that are obtained in different ways and used for different purchases in the game. However, developer Blizzard decided to confuse everyone with a new one, the Mythical Prisms, in Season 10.

To clarify, Mythic Prisms are the newest currency in Overwatch 2 used to purchase Mythic skins from the shop. Previously you could only get specific skins when they were a reward in the current Battle Pass. I see it as a positive change, as it means you can, instead, buy any Mythical skin offered at the OW store. You have more freedom and more options to choose from.

However, this is now the seventh currency in Overwatch 2. Just like Redditor u/SettingRegular4289 said “So now we got legacy credits, gold points, emerald points, overwatch link points and Prims. So many different types of currency in the game. ”

Meanwhile, Bobbie_Sandtets said “It's like a mobile game,” and ZenkaiZ echoed this sentiment sarcastically saying “only needs about 6 more currencies to be an average mobile game.” Although I think two or three currencies could be fine, the current situation only serves to confuse players and having to find information about every single one is like a treasure hunt. This whole process is very counterintuitive, especially for new or returning players like me from Overwatch 1 days.

The confusion gets even worse with Mythic Prisms, which you can get two ways, but only the more expensive way is linked in the Hero menu. You must already know what you are doing if you want to avoid paying extra for something you can get in other ways.

How to get Mythic Prisms in Overwatch 2

The easiest and cheapest way to get Mythic Prisms in Overwatch 2 is through the Premium Battle Pass. You can purchase a Premium upgrade for $10 and you will receive a total of 80 Mythical Prisms if you complete a single Battle Pass. This means you'll have enough for one skin that's 50, as well as leftovers for when the next season's pass rolls around.

However, if you don't want to wait that long until you can get multiple skins, then you can also buy the Prisms for real money. There are two ways to do this.

You can click on all currencies in the upper right corner, or you can go to a specific character Mythic skin and click on the Unlock button. Both of these will take you to the same purchase menu where you have three different Mythic Prism Bundles to choose from.

  • 10 Mythical Prisms – $9.99
  • 40 (+10) Mythic Prisms – $39.99
  • 75 (+25) Mythic Prisms – $79.99

After you complete the purchase, you can unlock whatever skin you want in the Shop and then join the queue to show it off. However, if you have the patience, I would just wait and complete the Battlepass. It is worth noting that the game does not show you the prices until the last step of purchase, and maybe there is a reason for this – they are not cheap. Especially when you consider what you can buy with them (only two skins with the most expensive package).
