Any tips for new players? I bought this for myself on Xmas, but I don't know what the fu*k I'm doing. It seems as though I just get picked off at every turn.
Don't go into every battle alone, and don't separate too far from the group. The worst thing that can happen is that you keep dying and leaving your group to f!ght 5v6 the entire match.
Change your aiming reticle / look sensitivities to your preference.
Learn how each hero's weapons shoot.
Learn where the health packs are on the maps.
Learn how to play point control and escort.
Play the angles and flank, less head on gunf!ghts unless you got great aim and can score headshots.
This game is 90% learning how to play with other players on your team (team composition), until you can start carrying a team.
