Not sure how to unban yourself from Overwatch 2? We've got you covered!
If you feel that you’ve been banned unfairly in Overwatch 2, you can appeal your ban by contacting Blizzard. They will investigate the case and determine whether or not your ban is justified. If it turns out that your ban is unjustified, you may be unbanned.
So, let's see how to unban your account from Overwatch 2. We'll start by looking at Blizzard's code of conduct.
Blizzard's in-game code of conduct
When playing Overwatch 2 or any other games by Blizzard, every player is expected to adhere to the rules set out by Blizzard. These rules ensure that everyone has a fun and safe time while playing. Breaking Blizzard's code of conduct can result in account restrictions.
The following policies shouldn't be ignored if you wish to avoid account restrictions:
|Policy||What it refers to|
|Communication||Any disruptive language, like hate speech or obscenities, in any form of communication|
|Behaviour||Engaging in activities that disrupt other players and ruin their enjoyment, for example, griefing|
|Cheating||Any form of cheating, such as using third-party software to gain an unfair advantage, spamming, misusing bugs, and more|
|Naming||Offensive user-customizable names, such as player names and BattleTag names|
In short, you will face account or gameplay restrictions if your behaviour disrupts others' play experiences. If this behaviour becomes a pattern, your account may be permanently banned.
So keep these rules in mind and your behaviour in line when you play Overwatch 2.

How to get unbanned from Overwatch 2
If you are banned or suspended from Overwatch 2 due to a violation of the in-game policies, you can appeal the penalty by submitting a support ticket. The chances of getting unbanned from Overwatch 2 are slim - unless you were banned unfairly.
If you believe you’ve been wrongfully removed from Overwatch 2, appealing your ban may help you get back into the game. Before you submit an appeal, Activision recommends you review the following:
- No matter who was playing at the time, the account holder is responsible for the account's behaviour. Using excuses like someone else playing on your account at the time of the violation will not lead to the unban of your account.
- Appeals sent after a final review may be ignored. Which means repeated appeals won't help your case.
- If you believe your account was compromised, secure your computer before submitting the support ticket to avoid being hacked again after you've regained access.
After reviewing the above-mentioned information, if you still believe that you were banned unfairly, you can submit an appeal by clicking here and following the on-screen instructions.
In your appeal, you can then plead your case and explain why you feel that your account shouldn’t be banned. Activision will go over your request and restore your account if they are convinced that you’ve been banned unfairly.
Also, refrain from using abusive or vulgar language in your appeal as it will only result in your appeal being denied.
