The highly-anticipated second edition of the household hero-shooter, Overwatch, is finally live. Gamers both familiar and new to the game are scrambling to try out the new reworks and heroes OW2 has to offer.  You might be a new player trying out OW for the first time or maybe you’re an old-time player looking to sharpen their skills up to par.

Don’t worry. We got you 5 straightforward tips that will help you sharpen your skills in Overwatch 2 and keep you prepared for the challenges to come.

Best Tips to Help You Improve Your Skills in Overwatch 2

Overwatch has always been a fast-paced hero-shooter that requires you to have aim yet good coordination with your team to win matches. As such, we will be talking about both aim mechanics and game sense. Let’s get to it.

1. Rotations

Rotations simply mean rotating to a better position. Have you noticed at times when your team just can’t push the payload forward? It’s most likely because of Rotations.

All 6 players trying to mindlessly push one direction will get you nowhere. Instead, use the terrain to your advantage. Go flank or whenever you’re defending use the high ground to give your enemies a hard time pushing.

2. Look at your Team

Sounds like something simple right? But actually, it is something that most players tend to forget. New Players can exponentially improve their gameplay by doing these simple actions.

Looking at your team allows you to identify the position of your teammates. This makes sure that you time your attacks with your team. Your flanks or pushes against the enemy team will be useless if your teammates are not in the line of sight to follow up on the damage.

3. Practice mechanics

Overwatch at its core is an FPS(First-Person-Shooter) game. As such, aim or the ability to hit your shots at enemies is crucial.

At least dedicate solid 10 minutes to custom games for aim. Make sure you use a very comfortable sensitivity for you. This will allow you to aim without thinking about it too much, freeing up space in your mind for other game-winning strategies.

4. Mentality in OW2

This simply means don’t get tilted. If you’re the kind o player that often gets tilted, it’s most likely because of your mindset.

Instead of focusing on mindless wins and rank, it’s better to focus on improvement. Overwatch 2 is likely to attract new players to try it out, so it’s better to be patient with these new players and teach them the ropes rather than raging at something you cannot control.

5. Find out the purpose of your Hero

Every hero or character in OW has a specific role to fulfill. For Ana, it’s to support and heal her teammates, and for Reinhart, it’s to as a frontline to make space for your Damage dealers to push.

Overwatch 2 is introducing a lot of reworks and new heroes, so before you try them out it’s better to have an idea of the purpose of their class.

This allows you to better position yourself on matches to know how to provide the best value for your teammates.

SWTOR G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3

How far will your reputation take you?

swtor game reputation guide for galactic season 3

Star Wars: The Old Republic is BioWare MMORPG based on the acclaimed Star Wars universe. As Galactic Season 3 kicked in, so did new challenges. Today, we’re talking about G.A.M.E., a new reputation system introduced along with this new season.

G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3 – SWTOR

In SWTOR, Galactic Seasons are long seasonal events that grant limited-time rewards upon the completion of daily and weekly challenges dubbed Priority Objectives. Subscribers earn extra rewards, but everyone can participate.

Season 3, titled Luck of the Draw, brought with it the Gambling Authority and Management Entity, popularised by the acronym G.A.M.E. Basically, it’s a new form to track your reputation. But it comes with a few differences.

Unlike the other reputation tracks, G.A.M.E. is tied into Season 3. Another difference is that you won’t be able to see the reputation track for G.A.M.E. until you earn 1 reputation point with the faction.

First of all, you’ll need to unlock the first level of the Season 3 track. This will allow you to claim the PH4-LNX Protocol Lockbox and, with it, activate the new companion, PH4-LNX (Fey, as she likes to be called).

As you play through Season 3, you might notice that some quests and enemy drops give a new type of currency known as the G.A.M.E. Analysis Module.

When Fey is on your ship, you can take those Modules to her and convert them into G.A.M.E. reputation. Each Module is worth 25 Reputation Points (37 if you’re a Subscriber).

Note that you can only hold up to 200 Analysis Modules and only earn up to 200 per week. Additionally, you can only earn 5.000 Reputation Points per week, no matter how many boosts you have.

If you’re wondering about the math of it all, you’ll need 70.000 Reputation Points to reach max reputation, which accounts for 2.800 Modules without any boost. Good luck!

(And I’m sorry to report there are no ways to farm the Modules. Having Fey as your companion, however, increases the chance of enemies dropping more of the item. You can also trade 500 Jawa Junk (purple) for Jawa Intel with Brrazz in Cartel Bazaar.)

There are two bugs worth mentioning. One, be careful with skipping Fey’s dialogue since it might cause the Reputation Points to not enter your inventory.

Second, if you’re in a group, you might be unable to talk to Fey at all. To correct that, you’ll need to leave the group, turn in your Modules, and then re-join the group.

Now, for the big question: what are the rewards?

You can earn three legacy titles associated with G.A.M.E.: G.A.M.E. Representative, Mid-level Management, and Deputy Director of G.A.M.E.

Aside from that, the G.A.M.E. reputation track is actually more about helping you to earn rewards on the Season Tracker faster, so don’t expect unique rewards here.

Either way, I hope you enjoy Season 3 of Star Wars: The Old Republic!
