  1. Imo he's best on payload maps where he can shadow step (teleport) to cliffs and just jump down and get a team kill with his ult also you know you're doing good with reaper if an enemy switches to Reaper to copy you or s76 to counter you

  2. If Reaper's Still In wraith form can he still push the payload?

  3. I thought he was a counter to McCree since he has overall higher dps in close range and has higher hp oh and note: when you run into mcree WRAITH the first thing 90 percent of mccrees do is flashbang once you get out you should be able to handle him, McCree is weak without flashbang in tight quarters

  4. I like how his reload animation is just him getting two new guns and throwing the old ones away XD can't he just reload normally

  6. Mccree is a big counter unless you are smart

  7. When reloading, melee instantly to make it shorter, sort of like Y Y from COD.

  8. where does he keep all of his shotguns???

  9. in addition, Mei is a pretty good counter against Reaper

  10. So, Reaper is easy to learn, easy to master. He's a tank killer and a squishy killer. His abilities allow him to be invisible and mobile for three seconds and to teleport behind or away from people. Essentially, you have no skill and are picking the easiest character in the game if you choose Reaper. Soldier 76 even has a larger learning curve than Reaper. He needs to be nerfed

  11. Actually reaper does have a name and a backstory

    Reply
  12. if you use Reapers melee right after you start the reload animation, you can start shooting quicker than just waiting for him to pick up new shotguns.

    I need to know before i purchase tbh. 😛

    •Looks so cool in every skin he has

  21. A handy little tip for Reaper; his reload animation is pretty long, and it can leave you vulnerable for longer than you'd like.

    When you reload with Reaper, immediately perform a melee attack; this will reload your shotguns considerably faster.

  22. Reaper is my fav to play because had so many potg with his ultimate and he can pretty much win u a game at the last moment if Clear an objective i like to put my best ones on ytube to prove his ulti is imo best in the game if used correctly

  23. Meh… I don't like damage fall out… TF2 does this too (I AM NOT SAYING OVERWATCH IS LIKE TF2) … But yah, tf2 has the same mechianic. A pistol does 10 damage say point blank, but farther it does 5 damage… Like, dude… Come on, give me the whole 10 damage. Bullets don't get weaker as they travel, c'mon… ;(

  24. wraith form makes him faster as well, it's good either for chasing and escaping.

  25. Do the souls he takes remove the ones a Mercy can fly to?

    Reply
  26. Why does throw them on the ground

    Reply
  27. How much damage does reaper do with mercy damage buff?

    Reply
  28. In my experience the begining players don't quite understand how to fully flank as Reaper and over estimate his range on his basic attack and his ult. I don't understand recomending him as a beginning character because I felt like I had to learn how to pick his moments a lot more than some of the other characters. I think Tracer makes a better beginning flanker for new players tbh, then they get try Genji and Reaper.

  29. Does Wraith form still make footstep sounds or another sound the enemy can hear?

    Reply
  30. Anyone have any experience on whether or not it's worth it to aim for the head? I've been aiming for the upper chest mostly, but double damage sounds like it could be useful.

  31. love your guides man, there awesome and help me play thanks bro!

  32. At Numbani playing defense, Reaper got the jump on our team. Wraith form from highground in the middle of our team, Zarya shield and Deathblossom made him an easy penta kill. Still have PTSD from that moment.

  33. I don't have Overeatch yet. But probably I'll get it for my birthday😛. I wondered witch hero I should choose.

    I always loved Reaper, now I know how to use him I'm absolutely gonna use him! Thank you very much!

  34. love your overwatch advice, keep it up man

  35. This is an amazing guide – and a very enlightening one too. I never realized Reaper had so much depth to his play. The soul globe's passive is just genius! Will definitely try him

    Reply
  36. Does his ultimate have any verticality to it? How far above and below himself does he damage enemies, if at all? (I know he said 8 meter radius, but what if you're dropping down on enemies or someone is on a ledge just above you)

    Reply
  37. It's /always/ Death Blossom!

  38. can you go into third person in these games

    Reply
  39. You forgot the part where you point blank head-shot a widowmaker and she kills you, or the part where people get away with no hp left because of the damage fall off, or the part where you can't seem to hit anyone even when they are in the center of your dot, taking all 20 pellets. Or the best part where Genji using dragonblade out dpses you without parry, while taking full shots to the face.
