How to Save Match Highlights

Now that Overwatch 2 is out, players are jumping in and giving it their all––showing off their skills in Blizzard’s beloved hero shooter. Whether you’re working to level up your Battle Pass, or just working your way through the various challenges the game offers to earn free Coins, you’ve got plenty to do.

And sometimes, while in a match, you might pull off a nice killstreak or some other feat you want to brag about to your friends. If you do, you don’t have to worry about recording all your gameplay with an external program or hardware. Instead, you can save your Overwatch 2 match highlights using a system built into the game.

One of the most important aspects of any competitive game is looking at what you did right and what you did wrong in previous matches. Games like Overwatch 2 make this easy, as they offer in-game solutions for saving your previous match highlights.

To save a match highlight in Overwatch 2, make your way to the Career Profile section of the game’s main menu. From here, navigate down to the History tab and select it to get an overview of all your recent matches. If you earned the Play of The Game during that match, there will be a button next to the match that you can press to automatically save an edited version of that specific point in the match.

If you want to grab a specific highlight from the match, you’ll need to select the highlight and work your way through the match recording to find the spot. Highlight that section of the match recording, and then select the save option to add it as a saved highlight. Of course, if you’re on PlayStation, you can also take advantage of the Share button built into the PlayStation’s controller.

There are, of course, plenty of other things to work toward in Overwatch 2. Not only will you want to unlock Sojourn and Junker Queen, but you’ll also want to look into learning all of Kiriko’s abilities, which you can check out in the game’s practice mode.

Now that you know how to highlight a match in Overwatch 2, you’ll just need to work through the long queues the game has been dealing with since launch. Once in, though, you can head in-game, complete a match, and then grab your favorite plays and highlights from the History tab in the Career profile to show it off to your friends.
