Items are a feature of both Overwatch and Overwatch 2. While the former game confines items to health packs (found in various maps), Overwatch 2 allows players to choose an equip items in Story Experience missions. Items appear to have a classification system in the game (e.g. "common"). Players retain their item for the duration of the mission.
