Now that Overwatch 2 has been unleashed upon the masses, players may be wanting to learn what some of the more technical jargon in the game stands for. One of the most confusing terms to new players is MIT, and what it could mean for those that are just joining into their first match of the game.

While there are plenty of terms that may be slightly overwhelming, at least there is a very clear and concise answer to this question. Let’s dive right into the details, and find out what it means when you’re trying to find out what you’re MIT is during a round of Overwatch 2!

MIT Meaning in Overwatch 2

Not to be confused with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT in Overwatch 2 means something completely different. When you look at the scoreboard you may notice the phrase ‘MIT’. This stands for “Mitigated Damage” in the game. It takes into consideration things such as damage prevented against you or that player you are looking at the MIT score for.

This was noted in the official patch notes that it would be a new statistic added. There are a lot of acronyms to get used to when you’re playing through Overwatch 2 and reading the scoreboard. Generally, the one that you will be wondering about is going to be MIT. Now that you know what it means, you can jump back into the action of the beta if you have managed to get guaranteed access by perhaps buying the Watchpoint Pack if you have.

Along with the MIT statistic, there are going to be of course additional changes that you will notice with the experience so be sure to stay tuned to the site for everything that you need to know about the game while you work your way to victory!
