Overwatch Soldier: 76 Guide and Tips
It's not for no good reason that Soldier: 76 is the first character you're introduced to in Overwatch's tutorial. This particular Hero represent the most immediately familiar shooter archetype, packing as he does a rapid-fire weapon with grenade-like side-functionality, and a sprint ability to get in - and out - of danger nice and fast.

§ Sprint is an extremely versatile ability - use it to get back to the fight quickly, dart forward and scope the danger for your team, flank the enemy, or just get out of Dodge when it all goes disastrously wrong!
§ Note that the longer you hold down fire on your pulse rifle, the more inaccurate your aim becomes. For this reason it can be more effective to fire this weapon off in tight, controlled bursts - particularly against distant enemies.
§ Soldier: 76's Ultimate is a powerful thing indeed, and best used to focus on the squishiest characters in front of you if you want to get the most out of it each time.
§ The Helix Rockets cooldown is a mere 8 seconds, so do get into the habit of working them into your standard combat mentality. They're particularly powerful when it comes to gaining an edge in a one-on-one duel - and they can absolutely annihilate squishier Heroes.
§ Tactical Visor immediately reloads your ammunition to its maximum capacity, so try to rattle off anything you have left in the tank before activating this incredible skill!
