Overwatch 2: How To Transfer Skins
As noted above, players are able to move accounts from any platform to Overwatch 2, so that you're able to get all of your skins, level, and endorsment level within OW2.
So, you'll want to ensure this is done ASAP, and the process has been outlined by Blizzard so it's easy for you to follow.

Here are the steps you can take to merge your console account to a battle.net account:
- Login to Overwatch from your console account.
- Follow the on-screen prompts to scan a QR Code on your mobile phone.
- Enter the code displayed on your console to connect to or create your Blizzard Battle.net Account.
- Once complete, you will be prompted to confirm your account upon the next game login to merge your accounts.
You will only have one opportunity to merge the correct account.
Once you merge a console account with a battle.net account, you will be unable to link to a different console account on the same platform. Double-check to make sure you are linking the correct account to your battle.net account.
If you encounter errors while linking your accounts, follow the instructions on the Account Link Common Problems support article.
Check out the Account Link support article for more information on how to merge your accounts.
To setup from PC, you can visit the Battle.net Connections webpage.
