We are sure there are going to be lots of corners and angles players will be able to set up on, but we will be sure to let you know when the map gets released!
Best Agents To Use
Since the beta has released some agents are pulling ahead as favourites compared to the rest. Certain agents have some game-changing abilities, ones that can solo hold bomb sites, or even eliminate an entire team right away.
Some of the best ones to use right now no matter the map are:
- Raze - Undoubtedly one of the most overpowered characters in the game right now, Raze's rocket and grenades can deal immense damage to the enemy team.
- Cypher - If you can get the right camera setup with Cypher, you are able to solo hold a bombsite. Just based on map knowledge and trap placement, you can delay the enemy's team push.
