- Solider: 76
GOAL: Seek out, engage, and destroy the enemy.
ACHIEVE IT: Be aggressive and land your shots. If you’re slightly off, it can mean the difference between Victory and Defeat. The dual-height combination of Overwatch Performance Thumbsticks maximizes your ability to quickly acquire targets and make agile movements.
GOAL: Stop the opposing team’s advance
ACHIEVE IT: Because Junkrat, Mei and Torbjörn typically engage enemies at close-to-mid range, use just the mid-rise Overwatch Performance Thumbstick on your right stock stick to maximize these character’s agility and hit shots when up close and personal.
If you’ve selected one of the other defense characters, however, maximize your long-range accuracy by using both the high-rise and mid-rise Overwatch Performance Thumbsticks to more easily land those cross-map headshots.
GOAL: Lead the charge by soaking damage and breaking apart fortified positions, like closely-grouped enemies and narrow chokepoints.
ACHIEVE IT: When playing a tank, you’re going to be up in your enemies’ faces constantly, meaning close-quarters combat (CQC) is the name of the game. The mid-rise Overwatch Performance Thumbstick is the perfect CQC height. Use it on your right stock stick to give you the perfect balance of control and accuracy.
GOAL: Be the backbone of your team’s survival by empowering your allies, healing and shielding them, boosting their damage, and providing vital utility.
ACHIEVE IT: Depending on the support hero you play, you’re either going to be helping out from the front lines or from a distance, and these require slightly different gameplay styles. Going for front-line action? Try just the mid-rise Overwatch Performance Thumbsticks for up-close target acquisition. Hanging back? Snap the high-rise thumbstick on your right stock stick for maximum accuracy at long-range.
