Overwatch Year of the Rooster Capture the Flag
Overwatch’s new Year of the Rooster event, has brought forth new skins, voice lines, sprays, and a new game mode called Capture the Rooster. The new game mode is very similar to Capture the Flag modes commonly found in FPS titles, but the large and varied hero pool of Overwatch adds another layer of strategy to popular mode. Here are the some tips and strategies for the newest game mode.
Once you are in the game then it is best to have teammates who chose slower moving characters stay behind and defend the point and have teammates who chose characters with the most mobility go after the flag. The exception to this rule is Mei. Met is a slow moving character, but she can be helpful on the attack and the defense because she can stop attackers from escaping with the flag, or prevent defenders from chasing her team with her wall ability. Once your team is in the lead, the whole team can choose to stay behind and defend as the team with most flags captured will win when the clock runs out.
Now that you know the general strategy, let’s take a look at the best heroes to use.
