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.
