When playing Overwatch 2 for the first time, bear in mind the following advice regardless of your favorite hero or role:
- Make good use of the new ping system. Overwatch 2’s new ability to ping opponent locations is a far faster and more efficient way to communicate than your regular callout, whether you want to use Team Voice Chat or maintain your peace. If the default version of your « ping » keybind isn’t convenient or comfy for your setup, don’t forget to modify it in the « Controls » menu.
- Create your own Custom Game to become familiar with the new map layouts. Wandering around these new maps without a timer or an enemy team obstructing you will help you gain a sense of the layout if you frequently find yourself walking by « Point A » in Midtown on Defense. Under Settings in Custom Games, you may modify the active map.
