Overwatch 2 is finally out and its free-to-play model has introduced a lot of newcomers to Blizzard’s hero shooter. With such an influx of new players, one TikToker has decided to troll them with some hilarious fake tips.

‘Intricate’ can best sum up Overwatch’s gameplay. With so many heroes and interactions in the game, it can be quite overwhelming to learn how everything functions.

While plenty of content creators have used all these rookie players to their advantage, creating tutorial videos and offering up plenty of advice on how to improve at the game, one has decided to do the opposite.

Overwatch 2 TikToker stuns viewers with hilarious fake tips

Think back to when you first started playing Overwatch, and if you’d believe any of these “tips” before rushing to judgment.

Of course, neither of these actually work, but they do raise an interesting point: Why don’t they?

After the first video’s success, Haley made another video where she once again made a series of false tips including using Ana’s Nano Boost on another support to increase their healing.

Experienced OW fans have joined in on the fun, joking that by following the advice they were able to go from Bronze to Masters.
