Overwatch content creator KarQ has produced a series of tips to help players get better with Sigma.

Sigma is the latest addition to the Overwatch hero line-up, an astrophysicist who’s been turned into a living weapon and is unaware he’s working with terrorist organization Talon.

With his kit offering a mixture of defensive tools in the form of a shield and Kinetic Grasp – which operates similarly to D.Va’s Defense Matrix, absorbing incoming attacks – as well as crowd control in his Accretion stun and Gravitic Flux ultimate, Sigma offers players a range of options and playstyles.

In his latest video, KarQ teams up with former Overwatch Contenders player Niko ‘ChroNoDotA’ Raisanen to run through some tips for Sigma players against every other hero.

The video details a key tip for playing against every hero as Sigma, focusing on countering their most powerful abilities, or the most effective way to use Sigma’s own abilities to shut them down.

Blizzard EntertainmentSigma is the 31st hero in the Overwatch line-up.

For instance, ChroNoDotA highlights that players shouldn’t waste Kinetic Grasp against B.O.B, how to kill Tracer from full health with a single combo, and that rather than absorbing Pharah’s Rocket Barrage, placing Sigma’s shield directly in front of her will cause her to die from self-damage.

ChroNoDotA also explains a more general point about Sigma’s shield usage, stating that players should try to avoid using it as they would Reinhardt’s or Orisa’s shield to passively soak up incoming damage, and instead use it more actively to block key incoming abilities, like they would Winston’s bubble.

The video should help those looking to improve their Sigma play or expand their Tank hero pool for the new role queue system – and you’ll even have some time to practice before the new Competitive season, which has been delayed due to bugs that were producing matches with a massive range of player ranks.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
