Lifeweaver is the latest hero to join the Overwatch 2 roster. The Thai Support hero entered the game on April 11, 2023, at the start of Season 4. He is the creator of Biolight, a technology that merges plant matter with hard light to create a healing effect, with which he plans to save everyone on the planet. Lifeweaver was available as part of the Overwatch 2 Season 4 Battle Pass, where he could either be unlocked in Tier 1 by purchasing the premium Battle Pass or in Tier 45 for those opting for the free version.

If, by chance, you could not unlock Lifeweaver in Season 4, do not worry, as there is a way to unlock him in Season 5 as well.
