After a lot of hype and anticipation, one of the most awaited sequels of 2022 is finally here. Yes, I am talking about Overwatch 2. Overwatch’s earlier game was a massive success; it has been six years since the last installment was released. Players worldwide across different gaming platforms are currently playing the game.

The most significant change in the game is that Overwatch 2 features 5v5 matches rather than 6v6 as the last game, and has also brought in some new and better Heroes. And after playing this game on both PC and PS5, I can say that this is one of the most optimized games this year.

Since the game was in BETA, Overwatch 2 has been continuously hit by several bugs, including DDoS and issues regarding players who can’t log in using their phone numbers.

After these two bugs were countered, they faced another bug where they had to remove two heroes from the game to fix it, as we all know that online multiplayer games always have some issues. A new issue that has been a pain for players is the Screen Flickering problem.

Since Overwatch is a fast-paced competitive shooter game, issues like screen flickering can cause you to a vital match. This article will guide you on fixing the flickering screen issue if you face such cases.
