Every Lúcio main worth their salt in Overwatch needs to have a working knowledge of how to boop, but a new Workshop mode from DarwinStreams can help you master one of the hero’s most useful abilities.
Officially known as the “Soundwave”, Lúcio’s boop deals 25 damage while knocking enemies in front of him backwards, but it can be difficult at times to get the distance just right.
All Lúcio players know the feeling of diving in for a massive boop but being just a bit too far away and missing out on the sweet, sweet environmental kills, so Overwatch Workshop whiz DarwinStreams decided to give players a tool to perfect their boop range.
“That’s how you get Tinnitus”
To fix the problem of misjudging boop distance, Darwin created a section for Lúcio in his upcoming Range Trainer Workshop mode that shows the exact distance his boop is effective at.
A circle around Lúcio shows the range where his boop can knock opponents back and a floating orb shows where he should aim for maximum boop power.
Using this and the help of bots, players can dial in their boops and get the exact distance down to always be a threat wherever there’s an edge.
The Boop training is just part of DarwinStreams massive upcoming Range Trainer Workshop mode, which is yet to be released, but what we’ve seen so far is pretty promising.
Seeing as how the mode hasn’t been released yet, there’s no code available right now, but you can follow along with Darwin and his Workshop adventures on Twitch.
Speaking of boops, when will Lucioball be back?
Everyone’s favorite (or least favorite, there’s no in-between) Overwatch event mini game should return this year with the Summer Games event.
We don’t know exactly when Summer Games will begin, but Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan did say earlier in the year that it would start sometime towards the beginning of August.
Hopefully DarwinStream’s training mode is out by August to allow Lucio mains to perfect their boops before heading into the arena.
