How to Get Kiriko in Overwatch 2
Kiriko can be obtained in two different ways. One method will force you to spend some real money and the other method is for free but need some grinding.
Unlock at Tier 1
The first method that we’re going to mention to get Kiriko is by unlocking it using the Overwatch Season 1 Battle Pass. To get a Battle Pass, you need to spend a total of 1000 Overwatch Points, which will cost you a total of $10 USD. Of course, this price also depends on your location and currency.
While you can earn Overwatch Points for free as you play the game, it will take you around 4 and a half months. Since Season 2 of Overwatch is about to start on December 5th, relying on free Overwatch Points that you earn in-game will not allow you to get Kiriko.

Completing a weekly challenge will reward you with around 5000 Battle Pass XP, and completing all of the weekly challenges will give you more than 50,000 Battle Pass XP. In addition to the Battle Pass XP, you will also receive Overwatch 2 coins.
