Roadhog's a relatively simple Overwatch character to play - and Blizzard itself rates him as a pretty easy Hero to play - but that doesn't mean there isn't mastery to be had regardless. Here's a quick look at some of the best tips the community has accumulated over the last few months of beta gameplay.

  • If your RMB weapon damage doesn't detonate, the cluster itself lands a pretty weak chunk of damage. Practise makes perfect here, but if you don't think there's enough time to guarantee a detonation, stick to the LMB firepower instead.
  • Even if an enemy target is up in the air, you can still use your Chain Hook to drag them towards your team (hi Pharah!). Try to aim slightly ahead of your target's direction of travel, as the hook itself takes a little while to arrive at its destination.
  • Keep in mind that one of Chain Hook's most powerful uses is to interrupt channeled abilities that threaten to completely overwhelm your team. You have the health pool required to get in there and stop the chaos!
  • So you've hooked an enemy and they're now in your clutches - what next? A popular combat combo here involves using your primary weapon fire, followed by a melee whallop to the face, followed by another LMB blast. Keep cycling these abilities until your victim is dead.
  • You should prioritise dragging healers and other Support characters into range with Chain Hook. Once these characters have been taken care of, you'll find it much easier to pick off the rest of their friends.
  • As we've already mentioned, make sure you compensate for the recoil effect of Whole Hog to ensure your aim remains on target.
  • Even if you've only taken a relatively small amount of damage, you should drink deep if your Take A Breather is off cooldown and you have somewhere to hide for a moment! The cooldown is really quite short on this ability, and so you can afford to chug away pretty freely.
  • Whole Hog can take a little getting used to, but if you can try to use it when enemies are in an enclosed space, you'll find that the knockback effect increases the amount of damage they take overall.
