It’s cheaper to buy this Overwatch 2 beauty in real life than in the actual game

By this point, if you haven’t heard about Overwatch’s aggressive monetization and customer dissatisfaction, you must have been living under a rock (or you’re more offline than we are, in which case, bravo). Whether it’s issues with combat or complaints about the way the Halloween Terror event is playing out, players have plenty of issues with the newly launched free-to-play shooter.

To illustrate the point about how little value you get for the money in Overwatch 2’s in-game store, one player bought a charm – a charm you can also get in-game – in real life. Kick? Picking up the Pachimari charm IRL costs less than in-game.

Pachimari – which you may remember as Hanamura’s UFO catchers toy in the first game – resembles an onion with a smiley face and green tentacles, and has become something of an Overwatch mascot since the game’s launch in 2016 .

After players spent minutes watching the little chibi onion in the cases before a match started, it started to gain popularity. Roadhog has a liking for them according to game lore (he’s often seen stealing the plushies), and even has a skin based on the mascot. Lots of heroes have onion sprays with tentacles, and — of course — there’s IRL merchandise from it, too.

Reddit user hi_im_redbeard has published a post showing how much cheaper it is to buy the charm IRL than it is to buy it in Overwatch 2 proper. In the Blizzard Store, you can pick up the Pachimari J!NX 3D Keychain for $5 – a far cry from the 700 Overwatch Coins it costs in-game (you need to shell out at least $9.99 to get 100 Coins in the Overwatch 2 Store ) . A commenter on the thread says: “Even if [Blizzard] charged $7.00 for beauty at the department store, it would still be cheaper than spending $10.00 for enough credits,” to which another user replies, “Beware, they may update the prices of department store if they find out.”

Maybe this issue wouldn’t be so bad if there were still free loot boxes you could unlock on a free track in the battle pass, hm? As fans grow more and more impatient with the game, the next move is squarely in Blizzard’s hands. We’ll keep you updated on whatever the studio does next.
