Baptiste is the newest support to join released to the main game on March 19, 2019 and since then he’s definitely found a lot of use from players and even found his own niche in the higher levels of play like Overwatch League.

As with any hero who’s been out for long enough, players have started to find tricks that when mastered, could be useful to know how to do if you ever play Baptiste.

Blizzard EntertainmentBaptiste has turned out to be a pretty versatile support hero.

Who needs line of sight?

If you’re feeling lazy and don’t want to leave spawn, Baptiste specialist PMAJellies shared a great way to heal from a safe distance on Lijiang Tower’s Garden stage on Twitter.

By standing dead center in front of the main spawn door, Baptiste can toss his Immortality field and healing fire onto the point by aiming at the top of a dark area on the middle tower.

This trick could also come in handy in those situations when you find yourself hustling to get back and fight for the point towards the end of the round or in overtime – if you can make the shots.

It’s only one map, but the trick could be useful for Baptiste players to try and practice sometimes, because you never know when you might need it.

Blizzard EntertainmentHopefully you have teammates who know to get on the point.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Baptiste

Another sneaky Baptiste trick from Reddit user slckrpunk reveals a great hiding spot when Baptiste is playing defense on Dorado.

On the bridge over the first chokepoint the payload passes through, Baptiste can hop up and hide in the roof – he’s even able to keep healing (kinda) if his team’s on the high ground before the choke.

Sigma may have taken away any of the new hero hype that Baptiste had left, but that also means we’ll just see more and more brig brain strategies for the hero now that players are used to him.

Cheeky Overwatch trick lets Baby D.Va score environmental kills

Overwatch players looking to find a new lethal tactic with D.Va should look no further than this trick to surprise and tilt enemy teams.

Since 2016, Overwatch fans have taken highly to the hero D.Va, sporting countless cosplays, creating art, buying merchandise, you name it. Part of the reason for this is just how stylish the gamer-turned-mech pilot is.

As it turns out, however, even outside of her pink mech, D.Va can pack a punch and even eliminate any enemy hero in the game if the opportunity presents itself.

Most people know that D.Va’s Call Mech ability does a bit of damage if you use it directly on top of an enemy player, but not everyone realizes it also has knockback capabilities.

D.Va is one of the most popular heroes, in and out of mech.

Boops can be one of the best ways in Overwatch to quickly deal with enemies regardless of their HP. Anyone from Roadhog to even Tracer (especially if limited by cooldowns) can fall victim to a well-timed push off the edge of a map.

As Reddit user ‘eregis’ showed, despite being at a disadvantage against a Soldier 76 who put down his Biotic Field for health restoration, the confrontation ended in their favor thanks to the knockback of Call Mech.

While on Rialto, the D.Va player had the Call Mech ability ready, but waited a bit to activate it. First, the player lured the enemy Soldier 76 to a bit of an unfavorable position on Rialto with his back to the water.

After getting the victim close enough to the ledge, the D.Va used Call Mech and sent 76 off the map and to his demise.

Of course, this trick is a bit of a high-risk play. Baby D.Va is tied with Tracer for the lowest-health hero in the game at only 150. However, unlike Tracer, D.Va does haven’t Blink or Recall to get out of tricky situations, so being able to time the Call Mech perfectly can be tough.

Next time you find yourself as Baby D.Va and an opportunity presents itself, try to see if you can secure frags with this ability. Your opponents will never see it coming.
