Even though it's not as good as it was in the first Overwatch, Sombra's Hack ability is still a phenomenal tool in Overwatch 2. Wasting the Hack on the wrong enemy can lead to some disastrous consequences, though. If players really want their opponents to start rage quitting, it's important to keep some things in mind when looking for enemies to hack.
Tips with Sombra's Hack in Overwatch 2
When Overwatch 2 first came out, some Sombra mains were sad that the Hack only interrupts enemies' abilities for 2 seconds. That's all that's needed to interrupt some crucial abilities, though. First of all, it cancels shields, so if Sombra can Hack a Reinhardt or Sigma early on, the rest of the team should be able to focus them down.
Sombra's Hack can also interrupt Ultimate moves, but there are a couple in particular that Sombra will want to keep an eye out for. The chances of Sombra canceling a Pharah raining justice from above is slim to none. Rammatra's Annihlation is a great option for hacking, though, since he moves slow enough for Sombra to catch up.
There are some other Ultimates that Sombra can feasibly hack, like Moira's Coalescence or Sojourn's Overclock. If the Sombra player can track these Ultimates, they may want to hold on to the Hack until the enemy uses the Ultimate.
Otherwise, Sombra wants to look for squishy targets to surprise attack. This mostly means healers, but it's important not to ignore opposing DPS. If Sombra can flank the opposing DPS before a fight breaks out, that means the rest of the team can take their time firing at the Tank and its Supports.
