Overwatch Wiki

There are four modes in Overwatch: Assault, Escort, Hybrid, and Control. Each type has different objectives for a team to complete in order to win, ranging from capturing control points to pushing the payload to the finish line.

Arcade has maps designed for Arena gamemodes, which are smaller in size and more suited to those modes. Seasonal events also came with their own special maps, as well as reskins of normal ones.
