Free-to-play shooter surveillance 2 Season 2 starts tomorrow and with it a brand new tank character, Ramattra. And like last time, you can either buy the Premium Battle Pass to unlock the new hero right away, or you can grind the free path to eventually gain access to him. But this time, following player complaints, Blizzard is making this second option easier.

Blizzard’s hero-based competitive shooter, which released earlier this fall, hasn’t had a great first few months. Between server problems, bugs, characters removed from the game, expensive skins and problems with crossplay and support mains, Well it was a huge mess.

One of the most controversial issues Kiriko, a new support character added in the game’s first season. If you bought the Battle Pass, you got the new hero right away. However, players who have not purchased the pass will need to grind at level 55 to unlock them. Considering the effort it took to improve the Battle Pass, not many were happy about it. Leveling the pass took a long time and involved playing a lot of matches and completing boring or specific challenges –how to pin five enemies with orisa’s spear– that didn’t pay much XP. Now, ahead of Season 2’s launch tomorrow, Blizzard is promising an easier way to unlock its new tank for free.


On twitter, surveillance 2 Game director Aaron Keller tweeted that Blizzard reviewed data from Season 1 and decided to move Ramattra from level 55 to level 45 in the Battle Pass. And some challenges will be “easier” to overcome.

“Hey everyone! Quick update on some changes coming in Season 2,” Keller said. “After reviewing the dates for Season 1, we’re moving Ramattra to Tier 45 of the Battle Pass and making it easier to add a few more weekly Challenges to complete. Excited for all of you to see everything new in Season 2 starting tomorrow!”

This is part of Blizzard ongoing efforts to make progress in the shooter “more rewarding.” Of course, players were mixed on Twitter. While many seemed happy about the changeOthers were still upset that the hero was trapped behind such a high level of the pass, It would be better to suggest a lower levelright

Now it should be noted that different from the original over watch– which added all characters for free for all players without restrictions –Ramattra will still be locked behind a paywallUnless you grind. But at least the grind will be less terrible now and once you hit 45 you can stop focusing on challenges and the Battle Pass and just enjoy your new character. Well, unless Blizzard removes him like Mei or bastion for a few weeks. New Overwatch 2 heroes are easier to unlock for free
