When using Sojourn for the first time, we recommend you use her Railgun's primary fire a few times to learn its bullet drop and travel time. Because the primary fire has a considerable drop, you have to lead the shots, or you will miss the target. Alternatively, you can close distance to ensure each shot hits the mark.

Secondly, you can use the Railgun primary fire to charge the secondary fire. Use it on Tank class characters and quickly fill your secondary, which you can use to deal massive damage to opponents. 

Power Slide is the most fun ability of Sojourn to creatively push the enemy team, mess up with their formation, and retreat. And if you are not playing Overwatch 2 for fun, we recommend you use the Power Slide strategically to reach the high ground; the jump cancel will allow you to do that. 

Disruptor is the best ability for offensive and defensive use. You can place it at locations from where an opponent might flank you. You can use them to slow down enemies while dealing damage. And when the opponent gets slowed down, you can use the Railgun secondary fire to take them out. Or call in your team to take out the target. 

The Overclock ability is excellent for taking out any opponent with one shot, whether a Tank or other class character. A few things you can do to ensure your ultimate does not get wasted is not using your Overclock ultimate on Shields, as the attacks are blockable. You can save the last shot from Overclock's ability to use it a little later. However, keep this in mind; saving the last shot will remove the piercing capability.

Sojourn is the former Overwatch Captain who has led many battles. She is a brilliant tactician, thanks to her once being a part of the Canadian Special Forces. She is known for her discipline and her ability to deal with any situation in a calm manner.
