How to Get Overwatch 2 Season 6 Invasion Twitch drops?

To receive the cosmetic items all that you need to do is launch any one of the drops-enabled streams on Twitch. There are many to choose from so this should not be much of an issue, just make sure that your Battle.net account is connected to your Twitch account.

Now you simply need to reach the target viewership goals and claim the respective rewards. However, do keep in mind that until and unless you do not claim your rewards from the drops inventory on Twitch in a timely manner, further progress will be halted.

What this means is that after two hours of viewership, you will be ready to claim the first reward which is 'Coastal Namecard', but as long as you do not claim it from the drops inventory, further progress towards the second reward 'Torbjorn Battleship Voice Line' will not take place.

How to Link Twitch and Battle.net Accounts?

Before you start watching an Overwatch 2 stream on Twitch, make sure that your Battle.net account, the one in which you want to receive the free rewards, is linked to the streaming platform.

  1. Log in to your Battle.net account.

  2. Navigate to your Battle.net Connections page.

  3. A long list of third-party websites will appear, scroll to the bottom where Twitch is located and click on 'Connect'.

  4. A new page will open prompting you to log into your Twitch account, click on 'Continue'.

  5. After you log in an authorization from Twitch will pop up, click on 'Authorize'.

  6. A confirmation has to be provided to Battle.net after it retrieves your Twitch account details, click on 'Continue'.

  7. A final message will appear on the screen stating that your Battle.net account has been successfully connected to your Twitch account.

Note: Make sure you are connecting Battle.net to the correct Twitch account because there is a seven-day cooldown period that prevents a user from connecting to a new one.
