Watching Overwatch 2 highlights is great, but what if you want to share them with your friends online? Fortunately, the videos can be saved in the same menu as before:

  1. Right-click on the video of your choice.

How to Change Highlights Location

By default, Overwatch 2 saves all your videos in the following path on your PC: C:\Users\[PROFILE]\Documents\Overwatch\videos\overwatch.
