How to complete Lantern Lit challenge in Overwatch 2

Crouching before the lantern for 6 seconds while the ghost is active is a special Wrath of the Bride Halloween challenge called Lantern Lit in Overwatch 2.

For completing the Lantern Lit challenge in Overwatch 2, you will receive 1000 XP towards the current Battle Pass. It’s not as exciting as a cosmetic, but it will help unlock heroes and other rewards.

There are a lot of lanterns in the Wrath of the Bride mode in Overwatch 2, and it’s unclear who the ghost is, so we explain how to complete the Lantern Lit challenge below.

How to complete the Overwatch 2 Lantern Lit challenge

If you haven’t already, you must first unlock Arcade mode in order to access the Halloween event challenges in Overwatch 2. This requires you to first play fifteen matches in Quick Play.

When you unlock Arcade, select Wrath of the Bride and choose your difficulty. We highly recommend playing the ‘story’ mode if you just want to play to complete small challenges like Lantern Lit.

Play through the story and objectives of Wrath of the Bride until you reach the barricaded castle. Once he defeats the castle guards outside, Ashe will have to burn down the castle gate with his Dynamite ability. You’ll have to do this yourself if you play as Ashe.

We also have an Overwatch 2 tier list to help you decide who to play each role once you’ve unlocked all the heroes, a competitive mode and MIT explainers, and all the Season 1 Battle Pass skins you can to unlock.

The next objective is to “find the lord of the castle”, but before you locate him, the Unstoppable Ghost will appear at the top of some stairs. This is the ghost that must be active to complete the Lantern Lit challenge and, true to its name, it cannot be killed.

The lantern that you must crouch on for 6 seconds to complete the Lantern Lit challenge is to the left of where the Unstoppable Ghost appears. Run past it and crouch before the flashlight, and when you’ve crouched long enough, the message “Flashlight On Challenge Complete” will appear in the bottom left corner of the screen.

If you get knocked down while crouching in front of the flashlight, it won’t count, but if you’re playing story mode and a teammate doesn’t revive you soon, you’ll get up on your own anyway and can try again.

Progress through the rest of the level and defeat the boss to finish it, but be sure to pose with the bride during her introduction to also complete the Photozomb challenge!

I hope you have fun this Halloween in Overwatch 2!
