Overwatch continues to be one of the most supported hero shooters out there, continuing to please fans with various events and skins as Activision-Blizzard prepare to launch its follow-up, Overwatch 2, though that won’t be coming out anytime soon so players can enjoy their time with the game and partake in as many events as they want until the sequel comes out.

Despite being a paid game, one of the annoying things about Overwatch is the various in-game currencies that plague it, though the game does have some defenders of this since Activision-Blizzard do release each new hero free of charge, so players really only have to spend on the various cosmetics in the game but we all know how tempting those can be, even the ones you can grind for.

How To Get Overwatch League Tokens

Some of those beautiful skins have to be unlocked with Overwatch League Tokens, and they can be a pain to get since there’s no way you can earn them through gameplay.

If you want some free Overwatch League Tokens, you’ll have to watch a live Overwatch League game through Battle.Net or YouTube, with each hour getting you five League Tokens.

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Earn five League Tokens for every hour spent on Overwatch League platforms during live matches. 
  2. Your time is tracked continuously, so if you watch 30 minutes in one session and return later for another 30 minutes of viewing, you’ll get credit for that total accumulated hour.
  3. Time only accrues by watching live matches on the Overwatch League website (desktop and mobile), and on the Overwatch League mobile apps (iOS and Android).
  4. League Tokens will be available in your account after each completed hour.
  5. League Tokens can be used on all Overwatch game platforms (i.e., PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch).

While we’re sure hardcore Overwatch players wouldn’t mind doing that, you can also just straight-up buy the Overwatch League Tokens so if you really want that one McCree skin just spends some money.

There will always be a number of Overwatch skins that will be locked through some kind of event or in-game currency and that’s just the nature of this game, for better or worse.
