Overwatch 2‘s Photozomb challenge requires players to strike a pose with the bride during her introduction in Wrath of the Bride. That requirement is a bit vague, though, and some fans may be confused about how they are meant to approach this task. This guide is here to alleviate that confusion by providing specific details on striking a pose with the bride during her introduction in Overwatch 2‘s Halloween game mode.
As a quick point of clarification, Overwatch 2‘s Wrath of the Bride game mode is accessible through the Arcade, and it will only be available until the conclusion of the Halloween Terror event on November 9. Players that are interested in earning Sombra’s Never Cross the Bridge voice line are thus advised to knock out the Photozomb challenge sooner rather than later to avoid missing out on that reward.
Overwatch 2: Photozomb Challenge
The bride’s introduction occurs at the end of Wrath of the Bride, just after players unlock the throne room door when attempting to find the lord of the castle. Overwatch 2 players that are working on the Photozomb challenge are advised to stand directly in front of that door and enter as soon it has been opened. These fans should then promptly descend the stairs that are beyond the door, turn left at the bottom, and quickly make their way to the lord of the castle, who is lying on a metal plate under a white sheet.
The goal here is to be standing on top of the lord of the castle when the bride’s cutscene initiates, and there is a very short window of time within which players can reach that position. Fans that are struggling to get to the lord of the castle before the bride’s cutscene begins may want to consider using Overwatch 2‘s Sojourn, as the speed granted by her Power Slide ability makes the task slightly easier. That said, any Hero is capable of reaching the lord of the castle in time, and the Photozomb challenge should be marked as complete during the cutscene.
To note, some players indicate that an Overwatch 2 emote must be in progress when the bride’s cutscene begins in order to receive credit for striking a pose. While it is definitely possible to complete this challenge without emoting, players may still want to use one just to be safe. Those fans may also want to try to reach the platform that the bride is standing on prior to her introduction, as that position should also lead to completion of the challenge.
Overwatch 2 is free-to-play for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
