An Overwatch 2 player shared a “sweet” moment between two Reaper players who stopped fighting and “fell in love” during the Pride event.

Overwatch 2 has just started its official Pride event, which kicks off on June 1, 2023. During the Pride event, players can see minor changes to the Midtown map along with new player icons, name cards, and a short story.

Although the event marked the first time that Pride Month was officially featured in the game, some members of the LGBTQ+ community were let down by the event. However, that didn’t stop everyone from appreciating the gesture nonetheless.
