    Out of all the Wrath of the Bride challenges, Ominous Portent is definitely the hardest one. Also, you only have 14 days to complete the challenges otherwise they will get expired. To complete the Ominous Portent challenge you are required to witness seven Banshee moments in a single Overwatch run.

    Before you start the challenge it is highly recommended to play with your friends rather than with strangers because it might get quite of a hustle if you’re playing with strangers. Now, once you have progressed through the Tavern section, you will find yourself in a location where you are supposed to locate the gate key. Now here is the thing, be sure not to pick up that key until you are done with the challenge, otherwise, you will have to start all over again.

    That is the sole reason why we recommend playing with friends rather than with strangers because it could really hard asking strangers not to pick the key. Once all three of your teammates agree not to pick the key, it is time to look for Banshee who will be appearing randomly out of nowhere while exploring the area.

    The good thing is that when any of your teammates witness the Banshee moment it counts for all of you, so it won’t take much time to witness it seven times. After that, once you go for the key, all we can say is to be careful, we won’t be spoiling much but just be careful there.

    That is all that you need to know about Overwatch 2 “Ominous Portent” Wrath of the Bride Challenge. Good luck in completing the rest of the challenges as well.
