After a week after Overwatch 2’s debut, fans are beginning to wonder how Activision Blizzard intends to keep them playing for the foreseeable future. Battle Pass tasks on a daily, weekly, or seasonal basis seem to be a main means of gaining experience. These quests range in complexity, but there is one weekly assignment that consistently stumps participants.
In order to complete the weekly Overwatch 2 challenge known as the Role Mastery Challenge, players must achieve a 10-win streak while playing two distinct roles in either Quick Play or Competitive Play. Many Overwatch 2 players have been perplexed by the vague description of the Role Mastery Challenge, so if you’re interested in learning more about it, here’s all you need to know.
To finish the Role Mastery Challenge in Overwatch 2, you must first win 10 games as either the Tank, DPS, or Support role in one of the two-game types specified, and then win another 10 games as a new role.
If you’ve already won 10 games as a Tank for the first part of the Role Mastery Challenge, you’ll need to win 10 additional games as a DPS or a Support to complete the challenge. You must use two of the three available roles in Overwatch 2 and win 20 games in Quick Play or Competitive Play.
It’s important to remember that you may switch between roles at any time, so you don’t have to rack up 10 victories in a row. If you manage to rack up ten victories across two distinct positions before the end of the weekly challenge, you’ll be rewarded handsomely.
How to track Role Mastery Challenge progress
You can only view your progress toward the Role Mastery Challenge, which requires winning 10 games with each role, at the bottom of the Challenges menu, where it says “PROGRESS: X OF 2,” where X is the number of roles you’ve mastered.
If you want to see how many victories you have with each role, you can do so in your Career Profile; however, unless you were keeping track of your victories before you started the challenge, you will likely not be able to see your exact progress towards completing the Role Mastery Challenge, as the game keeps track of your statistics from both Overwatch and Overwatch 2.
However, if you play Overwatch 2 often enough, you’ll quickly rack up 10 victories in at least one role, and when that progress bar reaches “1 OF 2,” you’ll know it’s time to switch characters and finish the Role Mastery Challenge for a shot at the bonus goodies.
Those who complete the Overwatch 2 Role Mastery Challenge will earn the following rewards.
You may earn 5,000 Battle Pass XP, or half a Tier in the Battle Pass, for completing the Role Mastery Challenge in Overwatch 2, or any other weekly objective. On top of that, you may earn 30, 20, or 10 Overwatch Coins by completing 4, 8, or 11 weekly challenges, respectively.
