Overwatch 2 BC-153 Error Code Fix
BC-153 refers to connection problems. This means that you will not be able to immediately jump into a match. It could be server issues (here’s how you can check the current Overwatch 2 Server Status) or your internet.
Verify Your Internet Connection
If your internet connection is slow or unstable, reset your router. Next, check if you can join online multiplayer games such as Apex Legends or Valorant. If it’s not working, there may be an issue with Overwatch. If this happens, wait a few minutes and then try again logging in. After a few attempts, you may be able access the internet.
Change Your Server Region
Sometimes, server problems can be linked to a specific region. You can change the Battle net region here to test if the game is working and if it’s working without any interruptions.
Updating the Game
The devs will release patches to correct bugs if it is a bug. Make sure that you have the most recent update of OW 2 for your console or PC.
How to Update OW2
- For PC users, open the Battle.net client. Find the Gear icon. Check for updates there.
- PS players will need to press the Options button on their controller to check for game updates.
- Xbox users need to go to My Games and Apps > Find Overwatch 2. > More Options > Manage Games & Add-Ons > Choose Updates.
- Nintendo Switch users must press the + button on their console > Software Update > Via Internet.
Check Background Apps
Overwatch 2 should be the only PC game that is using your bandwidth. Make sure that there aren’t any other background apps using your data and other resources. Close all other apps and set OW2 as “priority” in the task bar. Next, log into OW 2 once more.
Verify if Antivirus or Firewall is Blocking access
A firewall or antivirus software blocking your connection to game servers is another thing PC players should check. To eliminate this problem, you can either disable them or whitelist OW2
