Want to add a little style to your PC background? Finding an Overwatch desktop background is the way to do it. In the years since the game came out, tons of artists have created fun, dynamic images to adorn the background of your laptop or desktop. Seeing the smiling face of Tracer or Winston—or the frowning face of Reaper, if that’s your thing—is a great way to brighten your day, even if you’re stuck in an online class or a work meeting instead of capturing point A on Numbani.

Here are the best Overwatch and Overwatch 2 desktop backgrounds.
