Tips for playing in Petra, new map of Combat in Overwatch

Petra is the new map available in Overwatch, which came along with the game's two-year anniversary update on PS4, Xbox One and PC via Battle.net. The map is facing the "Combat to Death" mode, which places each player by himself without teams. It is filled with traps, high places and strategic corners to protect yourself. Because it is a fast conflict map, it is also very small in size compared to the others. Learn some of the top tips for getting on well and getting good results in the games:

Careful, do not fall!

In addition to being small, Petra is filled with pits and potholes. In some cases you will already start facing an abyss. The center of the map, in particular, has flaws in the ground and you may fall without even noticing.

The ideal is to try not to get close to the middle of the map: it also leaves you exposed to shots coming from all sides. If, by chance, you end up there, try to escape through the corners, avoiding the central bridge, which will make you an even easier target.

Explore high places

There is a place in Petra, in particular, which is close to a camp, but high up. It can be accessed by means of a green leap device. It is a small platform that allows fast and intense duels.

If you jump there with a damage character or a killer, you can do well against long range duelists or tanks, which are secured in shields. It is that the distance to reach the opponent is shortened, if he does not escape, favoring the attack.

Do not be tempted!

Remember we quote the center of the map higher up? Because he keeps a great medical kit, which recovers almost the entire life of your character. Do not fall into the temptation of collecting it as soon as you see it, make sure no one is looking and you are not being pursued.

Who can do well in collecting the medical kit without being seen are characters with fast movement, such as Tracer, Genji or even D.Va. For the rest, continue to avoid the center not to die easy.

Avoid duels in tunnels

The tunnels of Petra are difficult to escape, because they are very tight. Thus they favor those who have the best aim or more likely to turn to the adversary at the right time. Avoid starting or continuing fights in them.

Instead of escaping into the tunnel, look for leap panels or open spaces to escape or catch the attention of another enemy, which can influence your fight and make you escape more easily.
