Players that have been playing Overwatch since it’s release in 2016 might feel like they know all the tips and tricks already, but in a game as constantly-evolving as Overwatch, there’s always new things to try out.

KarQ has been making Overwatch focused videos for awhile now and was the Community Lead for Team Canada during the 2018 Overwatch World Cup.

There are a wide variety of tips covered in the video, from body blocking, to how players can make sure they’re racking up environmental kills.

The five things covered in the video are:

  1. Melee lingering hitbox
  2. Body blocking
  3. Using sound advantage
  4. Be the last person to tag a player with knockback/cc when they’re going off the map
  5. Always press jump before falling off of the map.

All of the tips are easy to follow and could be implemented right away for almost every player not already aware of them, plus, KarQ goes into great detail in the video as to why each tip is important.

For the amount of information contained in it, the video is pretty short and easy to watch and follow along with for most players.


Overwatch’s current competitive season is expected to end sometime around December 28 or 29, so there’s still time for these tips to help players hopefully climb the ladder a little.
