Best Advanced Gyro Settings for Overwatch 2 on Nintendo Switch

The following settings can only be applied on Nintendo Switch if you want them on at all.

  • Invert Gyro-Aiming Pitch Axis – Off

For your reticle settings, we recommend changing those settings depending on the hero you will be playing. That could also be the case for the above settings. For example, we like to keep Winston’s Vertical Sensitivity higher so he can look and jump into the air faster when in trouble. For all of these settings, play around with them in the Training Area to make sure everything feels good for you or, at the very least, try and get used to them.
