Competitive Overwatch players have been hitting the ladder since May 31, when competitive season five opened. You’ll have around three months from the start date to rack up skill rating points and make your presence known in a competitive environment.
The exact end date for Overwatch’s competitive season five is August 28. You can find a countdown in the competitive season’s information tab in-game. Like with other seasons, you’ll have until then to earn competitive rewards. Players will continue to receive competitive points for hitting skill ratings.
- SR 1-1499 (Bronze): 100 CP
- SR 1500-1999 (Silver): 200 CP
- SR 2000-2499 (Gold): 400 CP
- SR 2500-2999 (Platinum): 800 CP
- SR 3000-3499 (Diamond): 1200 CP
- SR 3500-3999 (Master): 2000 CP
- SR 4000-5000 (Grandmaster): 3000 CP
On top of that, you’ll be awarded 10 competitive points for each win. And what can you buy with competitive points? Golden guns. Each hero has a golden gun that’s only available with competitive points, and each costs 3,000 CP.
Likewise, you’ll also earn a spray and a player icon for playing competitive Overwatch in season five. If you’re skilled enough to reach top 500—and stay there for the duration of season five—you’ll earn a special player icon and spray.
