How to Get Legendary Loot Boxes in Overwatch

Overwatch Legendary Loot Box

Looking to grab a legendary loot box in Overwatch? Here’s how.

Overwatch has a combination of both free loot boxes and one that you can pay for. Regular loot boxes are unlocked by either purchasing them in-game using real money or simply by playing the game and levelling up. You can also pay for event loot boxes only during the events. A more recent addition are legendary loot boxes. But how do you snag one?

Unfortunately, legendary loot boxes are only available during certain time frames. You can’t purchase them whenever you want. One of the first iterations of legendary loot boxes came out during the Overwatch Anniversary event. Players were awarded one legendary loot box just for logging on and it guaranteed at least one legendary item. Many players found that legendary loot boxes could reward more than one legendary which was super exciting.

Right now in Overwatch you can purchase a small loot box bundle in the shop which will give you one guaranteed legendary and five regular loot boxes. All you need to do is go to the “loot box” menu. From there go to “shop”. You’ll see the different amounts of loot boxes you can purchase here. On the far right is the legendary offer. The offer on the Blizzard website doesn’t say how long it will last, but it is a one time only purchase.

In the store you can also buy additional normal boxes if your heart desires it. If you buy 50 loot boxes you’re awarded an additional loot box for free, but you’re going to have to open your wallet and fork over $40 for it. Not sure if it’s worth it for a few shiny cosmetics.

And there you have it. Legendary boxes show up every once in awhile and it just so happens that you can grab one right now. It is likely only available for a limited time so be sure to keep an eye out for when legendary loot boxes pop up again.
