Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters – Overwatch Tips

There are times when overwatch is better. Remember that OW hits for full ranged damage.

Tips for Overwatch

  1. When facing a distant group of all melee enemies.
  2. When facing enemies who are warping in.
  3. When defending a choke point (doorway) where enemies must pass to attack you.
  4. When you’re not in combat and can see a pod is moving into close range with your squad on a predictable way.
  5. OW-specific bolters that do more damage this way.

The major difference from XCOM is snipers. OW isn’t great for assaults or heavies in XCOM–only for snipers. But the super long range gear in chaos gate doesn’t even do overwatch.

This all said, XCOM late game you’re not using OW much. One way to think about the game is the grey knights are starting at a much higher level–they kill starting enemies with 1-2 melee attacks-so they’ll play more like endgame assaults than early game snipers.
