It’s time to jump into Winston’s Beach Volleyball game mode in Overwatch 2. Here’s how the game mode works and how to win!
Overwatch 2's Summer Games event is in full swing, and players can jump and dive into action by playing a brand-new game mode! Here's how the Winston's Beach Volleyball game mode works and how to become the ultimate volleyball champion.
Overwatch 2 Winston's Beach Volleyball game mode
This game mode involves two teams of three players. Each team has the goal of getting a volleyball to the other side of the net. When the volleyball hits the sand, the scoring team earns a point. The first team to earn 10 points claims victory.
How Winston's Beach Volleyball works
Players get to choose from a group of heroes when they enter this limited-time game mode. These include Winston himself, Ashe, Cassidy, Echo, Genji, Hanzo, Junkrat, Pharah, Soldier: 76, Sombra, Symmetra, Widowmaker, Baptiste, and Mercy. D.Va was removed from the game mode due to a bug that booted players out.
Each hero has abilities that can help win the match. Genji, for example, can use Swift Strike and move to a location faster. Meanwhile, Sombra can use her Translocation for teleportation and Stealth for faster movement.
After hero selection, the match begins with one team serving the volleyball. Whenever a team scores a point, everyone's position resets and the scoring team gets to serve the ball.
How to win Winston's Beach Volleyball
Every hero can also activate the event-specific ultimate for faster movement, higher jumps, and harder hits. If a player's ultimate is not ready, then they can use the green jump pads for greater height.
To enter this game mode, launch Overwatch 2, press "Play" in the main menu, select "Arcade" mode, and choose the "Winston's Beach Volleyball" option.
