No matter your preferred hero or role, keep these tips in mind when hopping into Overwatch 2 for the first time:
- Use the new ping system to your advantage. Whether you prefer to use Team Voice Chat or keep your peace, Overwatch 2’s new ability to ping enemy positions is a much faster and more effective means of communicating than your standard callout. Don’t forget to change your « ping » keybind in the « Controls » menu if the preset version isn’t comfortable or easy to use in your setup.
- Learn the new map layouts by creating your own Custom Game. If you find yourself walking straight past « Point A » in Midtown on Defense, walking around these new maps without a timer or an enemy team impeding you will help you get a lay of the land. You can change the active map in Custom Games under Settings.
