Key Takeaway

You can pick up some unique Player Titles in Overwatch 2 by completing certain lifetime and challenge-based milestones. Once you reach the Prestige Tiers of the Battle Pass, you’ll also be able to unlock new Titles.

One of the most unique ways to show off your battle prowess in-game is to get Player Titles in Overwatch 2. These are some of the many unlockable cosmetic items up for grabs. However, they’re a bit more elusive than other cosmetics.

    What Are Player Titles

    Player Titles are a type of unlockable item that you can use to add some flair to your in-game profile. If someone’s obtained a particular Player Title, it can be displayed as a special subtitle underneath their username. Once you’ve unlocked a Player Title, you can add it to your player card in Overwatch 2 for future use.

    Player Titles are also displayed underneath your username during pre-match loading on the leaderboard so that others can see your achievements. You’ll also see it on your highlight intro, which is a nice touch if you’re featured in a match’s Play of the Game clip. This is a great way to impress other players and potentially make new friends.

    While they might seem like a simple cosmetic addition to your profile, Player Titles really show off your dedication and battle expertise. They’re not that easy to come by; you need to demonstrate serious skills to obtain them!

    How to Get Player Titles

    There are a few different ways to obtain Player Titles. You can get some of them simply by winning matches in different game modes. However, there are some high win counts required, so you’ll want to put plenty of work in if you’re determined to get one.

    The Unrelenting Hero Player Title, for example, asks you to have 1,750 wins under your belt before you can add it to your locker. You can check on a specific Player Title and its requirements in the Customization section of your Career Profile.

    Getting Player Titles Through Prestige Tiers

    Unlike other cosmetic items that are unlocked as part of the Overwatch 2 Battle Pass, Player Titles aren’t available for quite some time. In fact, you’ll need to play your way through quite a lot of Overwatch 2 matches to successfully level up through 80 tiers of the game’s Battle Pass first.

    However, after reaching the dizzying height of level 80, you’ll be able to access the Prestige Tiers of the Battle Pass. These special tiers award different Player Titles in the following increments:

    • Tier 85
    • Tier 95
    • Tier 105
    • Tier 120
    • Tier 135
    • Tier 155
    • Tier 175
    • Tier 200

    The names of the Player Titles awarded through these Prestige Tiers change with each new Overwatch 2 season. So, if you’re keen on making a specific name for yourself, you’ll want to start grinding your way through the Battle Pass to reach the top tiers quickly.

    Getting Player Titles Through Challenges

    The other way to obtain some unique Player Titles for yourself is by taking part in some of the game’s Challenges. There are several different challenge-based Player Titles you pick up while playing Overwatch 2‘s Competitive modes.

    There are also certain Player Titles available during special in-game Events. Keep an eye out for these time-limited Player Titles.

    Some Overwatch 2 Player Titles are awarded for completing lifetime challenges. Additionally, you can obtain them by hitting specific competitive milestones. These usually correlate to winning a certain number of games in various (or any) Competitive modes. However, they’re also awarded to players who finish a season in a particular ranked position. In particular, those who reach Platinum, Diamond, Master, or Grandmaster rank.

    Equipping Player Titles

    Once you’ve got a new Player Title, you’ll want to equip it so that it’s visible on your player card. To do this, find the Career Profile section of the Overwatch 2 Main Menu. Once on the Career Profile screen, tab across to Customization on the navigation menu at the top.

    Select this to see options for Player Icons, Name Cards, and Player Titles on a sub-menu, which is on the left-hand side. Scroll down to Player Titles. From here, you can choose which one you’d like to equip from those you’ve currently unlocked.

    Select Equip at the bottom of the screen, and you’ll see your chosen title featured underneath your username.

    Never fear flexing on the opposition! The better your performance, the more likely you are to get Player Titles in Overwatch 2. If you need some help with improving your gameplay, try adjusting some settings—such as changing your crosshair. Once you fine-tune your settings to match your playstyle and preferences, you’ll find it easier to rack up wins and tack on new titles.
