Overwatch 2 Sojourn Guide – Playstyle

As Sojourn, you will be playing in the medium range from the center of the fight so you need to consider heroes like Genji, Reaper, or Tracer to be on you often. Also, you can't hide from heroes like Widowmaker or Hanzo that will stay in the enemy's back lane and will try to eliminate you in the first order. That's why you need to be wary of your surroundings.

On the second hand, you can easily deal damage to tanks and that will allow you to generate energy pretty fast, compared to trying to hit small hitboxes of damage dealers that stay slightly behind big hitboxes of tanks such as Reinhardt or After generating 100 energy try hitting damage dealers with your Primary Shot. With a headshot, you have the potential to one-shot heroes with less than 250 health points.

Overwatch 2 Sojourn Guide can be good for people starting to play this hero, but can't teach you how to react to every scenario that happens in the match. There is also a possibility that you will need to change hero during the game because you will for example need someone that can take care of Pharah. In that case, better choices would be Soldier:76 or Widowmaker.

Is Sojourn In the Meta?

Sojourn is being played a lot since it's a new hero introduced to us in Overwatch 2. Her being meta is still questionable despite being praised by many high-level players.

Why do you ask? Well, Kirikos Kitsune Rush is a very powerful ultimate that allows other champions to conquer their downsides, but unfortunately, it's not the case for Sojourn. Her Overlock combined with Kitsune Rush does nothing. And nothing means basically nothing. Sojourns energy loads at the same speed with and without Kirikos Ultimate Ability. Kitsune Rush can change meta in any possible way or meta will stay as it is now, It's very unpredictable, but we can be sure of one. There is Kiriko in every ranked game and it's not a surprise.
