In the Overwatch 2 game mode Snowball Deathmatch, players have the ability to grab snowballs by hitting the “melee” button whenever an opponent fires a projectile in their way. To carry out this action on a PlayStation or Xbox, you should hit the R3/RS buttons, whereas gamers on a PC should press the “V” key. However, in order to be successful with this process, you will need to timing everything just exactly so that you can catch the snowball. Having said that, the most effective method for carrying out this procedure is to place some distance between yourself and your opponent in order to obtain a more clear view of the shot.

Those who are playing Overwatch 2 and who are able to successfully capture a snowball will have the word “Caught” appear in the middle of their screen, as illustrated here:

As compensation, players will receive a snowball as an addition to their ammunition rather than having to reload from the adjacent snow piles. You also have the option, while the match is in progress, to activate Mei’s Cryo-Freeze to make yourself invulnerable and to heal yourself. Alternately, players have the option of using their character’s Ice Wall to construct a barrier in front of them.

In the course of participating in these Winter Wonderland celebrations, you have the opportunity to receive gifts by achieving certain goals. In the game Snowball Deathmatch, for instance, players who manage to catch six snowballs will be rewarded with 1,500 Battle Pass Experience Points and the Ornament Spray. This concludes our guide on how to capture snowballs during the Winter Wonderland event in Overwatch 2; we hope it was helpful!
