It looks like Blizzard Entertainment just can’t take a break from Overwatch 2. After multiple DDOS attacks and server crashes, there’s now a new bug affecting players, and that’s the Overwatch Breaking Bug 2 that affects PC gamers!

Our team has been analyzing the update for a while now at and it looks very promising.

PC players who are queued for a match see their PC shutdown or restart! And yes, Blizzard has acknowledged that it was due to the game. On the Blizzard forums, several players have spoken out with the Overwatch 2 shutdown and restart bugs. One of the studio’s tech forum agents named “jambrix replied and asked gamers to post their “DXDIAG” which is short for DirectX Diagnostics.

Hi there,

If you are having issues with your PC shutting down while running Overwatch 2, please post your DXDIAG.


  1. Press Windows key + R.
  2. In the Run window, type dxdiag and press Enter.
  3. In the DirectX window, click Save All Info.
  4. Name the file “dxdiag” and save it to your desktop. Open the new dxdiag file with Notepad.
  5. In the post section, press the button > for “Preformatted text” then paste (Ctrl + V) the DXDIAG content. This will make the information much more readable.

If you are unable to post this due to the length of the DXDIAG, feel free to use pastebin.com 29 and share the direct link with us instead. Also use the button > to share the link.

There is a tiny bit of silver lining though, Blizzard announced that they are giving away a free legendary skin and weapon charm to players as a thank you.
