For Overwatch 2 Season 10, Blizzard has mixed things up with Mirrorwatch, an alternate-reality LTM mode where Talon flagbearers are peacemakers. 

Overwatch 2 Season 9 was a meta-shaker, tweaking health pools for all heroes, introducing larger projectile sizes, and new passive healing abilities.

On April 23, Blizzard lifted a curtain on the Overwatch 2 Mirrorwatch event, an LTM mode that grants a peek into how things would have been if Mercy wasn’t a medic but a Talon leader.

In Season 10, players can adjust to the previous changes while enjoying a brand-new limited-time mode, which puts Overwatch’s villains in a new, positive light.

Mirrorwatch is a 5v5 PvP LTM mode with reimagined and updated abilities for 12 heroes. All Overwatch and Talon heroes have swapped sides, and this shift is also reflected in new skins in the battle pass and Overwatch 2 shop.

In Mirrorwatch, the 12 heroes will act differently than in regular games. For example, Doomfist is now an Overwatch soldier whose Seismic Slam and Meteor Strike both heal the allies.

Reinhardt can smash enemies into a wall, and the Damage from Rocket Hammer now gives him increased attack speed. Similar upgrades have been added to each hero’s toolkit.

Some hero skins will be available in the shop, whereas others can be purchased from the shop. Players can also complete challenges to win free goodies and an event-exclusive Orisa skin. All of this will be available until May 13.
