Overwatch players have already discovered a way to increase the jump height of the game’s newest hero: Sojourn.
The so-called ‘superjump’ is well known among Mercy players as it gives her even more mobility by combining her jump and Guardian Angel abilities.
Now, in a similar vein, in the Overwatch 2 beta, players have discovered how to give Sojourn a little extra boost with a jump combined with her Powerslide move.
Superjumping with Sojourn in Overwatch
You can use jumping during Sojourn’s Powerslide to send her flying into the air, but this isn’t the maximum amount of hang time she’s capable of.
Instead, it takes a clever combination of both to succeed. If you’re having trouble with Mercy’s super jump though, don’t worry, as Sojourn’s is much easier to master.
New Sojourn Super Jump Technology! from Overwatch
Taking Dorado’s second point as an example, the video above posted on Reddit by Mindful_Gamer does a great job of explaining how the “Sojourn Jump” works.
Oddly enough, it doesn’t launch with Powerslide, but starts with a jump, followed quickly by a slide. Just after you hit the button to slide, you’ll want to jump again, which should propel you up a little but further.
It’s not as massive a boost as Mercy sees from her superjump, but it’s enough to propel Sojourn into areas she couldn’t reach otherwise.
Whether this technique will be patched remains to be seen as we are technically still in beta. But this makes it crystal clear that there’s more to the latest Overwatch hero than meets the eye.
