The Overwatch 2 Season 10 Patch Notes are out, and the update not only adds the new hero Venture but also a new game mode and a sick line of alternate-universe Mirrorwatch cosmetics!

Overwatch 2 Season 10 Patch Notes

Blizzard also published a dev blog about Venture and the new event, Mirrorwatch.

The Overwatch 2 Season 10 update with the new hero Venture, the alternate universe Mirrorwatch cosmetics, the new Clash game mode, and all of the updates below goes live on April 16, 2024.

New Limited-Time Mode: Clash Trial

This is a trial of Clash, an upcoming core game mode in Overwatch 2. In this game mode, the two opposing teams fight over 5 capture point, with each captured objective adding to the team's score.

A team can win in one of two ways. First, by controlling all five objectives at once. Second, by scoring five points total before the other team.

For now, Clash is available as a limited-time trial until April 29th.

Clash will take place in the new map Hanaoka, allowing players to see never-before-seen corners of Hanamura.

How Clash is played

  • Five total objectives placed in a linear pattern on a mirrored map.
  • Only one objective is active at a time.
  • Matches start with the center objective active.
  • Players capture an objective by standing on it and filling in a progress bar. Capture progress cannot be made if enemy players are contesting the objective.
  • When a team captures the current objective, they are awarded one point to their total score and a new objective moving forward from the scoring team’s side is activated.
  • Objectives can be secured multiple times. If a team is pushed off an objective and the other team successfully captures it, the next active point will be in the opposite direction.

Win Conditions

  • Complete one of these conditions to win the match:
    • A team has successfully captured five objectives throughout the match to reach a total score of five.
    • Regardless of score, a team manages to take the final objective (A or E) on the opponents’ side.

Competitive Updates

Competitive Role-Specific Titles

  • Examples include Champion Tank, Champion Support, Champion Damage, and Open Queue Champion.

Competitive Progress

  • Each Role Rank Card now displays the associated Competitive Role-Specific title.

  • Match History can now be selected to open the Game Report for a match.

Grouping Restrictions

  • All previous Competitive Grouping Restrictions have been removed.
  • All groups in Competitive Play are now classified as Narrow or Wide.
  • Players between Bronze and Diamond must be within five divisions of each other player in their group to be in a Narrow Group.
  • Players at Master must be within three divisions of each other player in their group to be in a Narrow Group.
  • Players at Grandmaster and Champion cannot be in Narrow groups, regardless of how close their ranks are. This restriction ensures that our highest-ranked players have the highest quality Narrow matches.
  • Narrow Groups will always be matched against other Narrow Groups or solo players. If a group has both Wide and Narrow configurations of players, the Narrow configuration will always be prioritized.
  • Any group that does not meet the criteria is considered a Wide Group.
  • Wide Groups of four players may not queue. This restriction exists so that solo players are never required to make a Wide match.
  • Wide Groups have increased queue times and reduced match quality because it’s more difficult to find another group of players with the same ranks in the same roles to match against.
  • The amount a player’s Rank Progress changes after each match is modified by the group’s width.
  • The wider the group is, the less their ranks will change when winning or losing.
  • The higher the rank of the highest-ranked player in a Wide Group, the less the ranks of all players in the group will change when winning or losing.
  • Players will now be informed if the configuration of roles they have selected would result in a Wide Group.
  • The Tier Legend has been updated, and a new banner has been added to explain the rules described above.

Rank Information

  • New Modifier: “Wide”—this modifier reduces changes in Rank Progress when winning or losing matches. The wider your group, the less your Rank Progress will change with each win or loss.
  • The modifier “Volatile” has been renamed to “Demotion.”
  • Arrows displayed under the modifiers have been changed to point from left to right instead of right to left.
  • New Modifier: Demotion Protection
    • This modifier appears on the Rank Progress bar to denote when you did not go down in Skill Division because of a loss. If you lose the next match after, then you are dropped down to the previous Skill Division.
    • Victory and Defeat have been added below the Rank Progress bar where modifiers are displayed.

Golden Weapons

  • Golden weapons can now be purchased with either Legacy Competitive Points or 2024 Competitive Points. You cannot purchase weapons with a combination of both currencies.

  • Fixed a bug where Venture would sometimes launch very far if using Drill Dash off a ledge while Burrowed.
