On this page you'll find everything you need to know about getting free Overwatch League Tokens, with an overview of how the new currency works.

A new currency has just been added to Overwatch, and it goes by the name of League Tokens. These new items are used to unlock the new colour schemes used by the various Overwatch League team. The idea is pretty simple. If you follow a particular team, you can show your support for them in-game by wearing the same skins they do in official matches.

In our guide to this new currency, we'll explain exactly how the new Tokens work and what you can do to get your hands on more of them, whether through the shop or by taking up the free offers that are currently available.

When you're done, don't forget to check out our massive Overwatch League guide, which contains details of all the teams, a schedule of matches, results as they come in, and catch-up video as it becomes available.

Overwatch League Token FAQ

League Tokens are a new currency that has been introduced to allow players to purchase skins used by their favourite Overwatch League teams.

These purchases are completely separate from the Loot Box system, and you are required to either purchase League Tokens from the in-game shop, or grab the various free token offers that are available (more on those in a moment).

The new Overwatch League skins cost 100 Tokens each. You can purchase these Tokens in the UK and US for the following prices:

  • 100 League Tokens - 4.99
  • 200 League Tokens - 8.99
  • 400 League Tokens - 16.99
  • 900 League Tokens - 34.99
  • 2600 League Tokens - 87.49

As you can see from the table above, it will cost you a total of 87.49 to unlock a team's colour scheme for every hero that currently exists in the game the game.

To unlock the skins, simply go to the Overwatch League section of the main interface, and then select the team whose colours you want to use.

Once you've done so you'll see a list of all 26 Overwatch heroes. Simply hit the Unlock button to the right of the screen and - assuming you have enough Tokens in the bank - you'll gain access to the skin in question.

Here's a video which shows how it all works in-game:

Free Overwatch League Tokens

This section will be updated continuously over time with the latest free Overwatch League Token offers. If you're aware of a giveaway that isn't listed here, please let us know in the comments so we can update the article.

Method #1

The first method for getting your hands on a quick batch of free League Tokens is to simply log into the game. Once you've done so and investigated the new Overwatch League tab that's been added to the title screen, you'll have 100 tokens gifted to your account. Nice and simple, eh?

Method #2

Here's another method for grabbing some free League Tokens, assuming you can stand a little bit of light spam in your inbox. If you sign up for Overwatch League Updates you'll receive another 100 tokens, completely free of charge.

To get your hands on these extra goodies, you must sign up for these email alerts by January 31st, 2018. You can enter your address over at the official Overwatch League site - just scroll down a little to where the black box is.

Account limitations

The first things to note in the context of these free tokens though is that your account must be in good standing in order to gain the free tokens that are currently on offer.

If you have been silenced, or your account has been limited in any other way due to penalties, you won't be able to pick them up. This seems to be Blizzard's next effort in the war against toxicity.

These are the only ways to unlock free Overwatch League Tokens that we are currently aware of. We will update this article when more methods for doing so are revealed by Blizzard!
