    • A ground slide that can cancel into a high jump.
  • Ability 2: Disrupter Shot (15 second cooldown)
    • An energy shot that slows and does damage to enemies who are in its vicinity (210 total damage).

How to play Sojourn in Overwatch 2: Top tips

Sojourn isn’t the easiest DPS hero to play in Overwatch 2, mostly because her kit relies on the player having excellent aim. Sojourn relies on her Railgun, and so being accurate and getting critical hits with the Railgun while also charging and using the Secondary fire is vital when it comes to damage output.

Players will need to use the Primary fire (projectiles) to charge up the Secondary fire (hit-scan), and then unleash the high-impact shot to finish off a target or do some major damage.

Using Sojourn’s Disrupter Shot is very important for close-range engagements, as it prevents the enemy from getting away while also doing huge damage. Players can also use the Disrupter Shot to slow enemies and stop them from following Sojourn when trying to escape or retreat from a situation.

Speaking of being evasive, Sojourn’s Power Slide is the key to her playstyle, as it allows her to be very shifty and hard to hit. For those who are fans of Apex Legends, Sojourn’s Power Slide is similar to the movement seen in Apex, as players will need to use it in order to evade shots and reposition while also reigning down fire.

Lastly, we have Sojourn’s Ultimate, Overclock, which refills the Railgun’s energy and allows the player to use the Secondary fire a lot quicker, which can be devastating. It also makes the Secondary fire pierce enemies, allowing you to hit multiple targets with one shot.
