Overwatch 2 Season 7 Twitch Drops: Skins, Items, Duration, How to Get, More
Freebies are dropping left, right, and center.
Overwatch 2 Season 7 was released earlier this week on 10th October and it has kept the community busy with all the new content that has come along. This includes a massive drop via Twitch which not only celebrates the launch of this update but also the festival of Halloween, hence the themed rewards that are equal parts spooky and gorgeous.
The limited-time launch drop is currently active having started alongside Season 7: Rise of Darkness and stays in tune with the overall dark theme, providing community members with an opportunity to grab a player icon, a weapon charm, two voice lines, and an epic skin, absolutely free of cost.
Well, the last part might not completely be true because though players are not required to spend any real or in-game currency, they would still have to spend time watching an Overwatch 2 stream over on Twitch in order to unlock these rewards.

How to Get Overwatch 2 Season 7 Twitch drops?
To receive the skins and items all that you need to do is launch any one of the drops-enabled Overwatch 2 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 'Lilith’s Visage Player Icon', but as long as you do not claim it from the drops inventory, further progress toward the second reward 'Demonic Skull Weapon Charm' 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.
Log in to your Battle.net account.
Navigate to your Battle.net Connections page.
A long list of third-party websites will appear, scroll to the bottom where Twitch is located and click on 'Connect'.
A new page will open prompting you to log into your Twitch account, click on 'Continue'.
After you log in an authorization from Twitch will pop up, click on 'Authorize'.
A confirmation has to be provided to Battle.net after it retrieves your Twitch account details, click on 'Continue'.
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.
Now you are all set to start receiving the Twitch drop rewards directly in Overwatch 2 without any hassle. All that is left to do is for you to start gathering those viewership hours.
So fire up your systems and launch an Overwatch 2 stream on the second monitor or simply let it run in the background, while you try out all the new things that have been added to the game.
