In Overwatch there is a section of game modes that if you win three you get a loot box. You can get a max of 3 loot boxes. (Custom games do not give you loot boxes)
1st Game mode: Capture The Flag (CTF)
Capture The Flag (CTF) is a game mode where there are two teams. Where each team has to capture the enemy’s flag three times or get more flags in the 5 mins. that you have to win. Most games result in a draw due to unbreakable defenses. So this might not be the game mode to get those loot boxes.
2nd Game mode: 3v3 elimination
In this game mode there are teams of three instead of the normal six. If you die, you don’t respawn (unless a mercy resurrects you.) There is three rounds of this, and a play of the game at the end of those three rounds. This might be the right game mode for you to get those loot boxes.
3rd Game mode: 6v6 Mystery Heros
In this game mode it’s just like quick play, same maps, same rules. But, with one exception. You don’t get to pick your heros, it’s completely random when it comes to hero selection. Also, when you die, your hero changes by random again, so it is hard to get a ultimate. This would probably be your pick if your good at not dying.
4th Gamemode: NO LIMITS
In this game mode it’s just like quick play, but it recreates the old hero stacking meta into a quick-play-like game. Hero stacking is when you have no limits on how many of a hero you can pick on a team. (this game mode used to be the old quick play then they got rid of that feature and gave us this.) This will definitely be a good pick for getting loot boxes.
5th Gamemode: 1v1 Mystery Duel
In this Game mode you completely have no control over your hero selection, the game chooses it. If it chooses Reaper, both players have to play reaper. (Unless you’re a nuker which is a type of hacker in Overwatch) this could be good for you to get a loot box if you’re good at every hero in Overwatch.
Last/6th Gamemode: Custom Game
In this Gamemode. Your are not granted a loot box when you win. But, you get XP. In Custom Game you can make it public, which players can access through the server browser, friends only, which friends on your friend list can access through the sever browser and it is highlighted in green which is the color for groups/friends. Or private, which is only accessible through invites. In this Gamemode you can modify the cool downs on certain heroes, modify the payload speed, the game mode, individual hero speed, individual hero health for teams which can be used for boss battles, specific hero selection for teams, you can get rid of abilities entirely, ect.
But recently, People have been using the XP that you get and have been exploiting it to level up and get loot boxes, which the Overwatch team were very ticked about, so they made it so you can get kicked from skirmish and you can’t get XP from skirmish. (Skirmish is used for going AFK because it has no objectives and it is 30 mins.) so what I am trying to get to is, if you join one of these, you will get banned (even if you just play around) and please don’t name your custom game: “Free XP farm!!! 500% everything!!!” Because you will get banned too. Just don’t do it.
