JETT BEGINNER’S GUIDE

06 / 04 / 20

Jett’s agile and evasive fighting style lets her take risk no one else can. She runs circles around every skirmish, cutting enemies up before they even know what hit them.

Role: Duelist

TAILWIND

INSTANTLY propel Jett in the direction she is moving. If Jett is standing still, she will propel forward

This is an effective tool to dash across distances, get into cover or maybe into a smoke. It’s not very good at taking duels necessarily, because there is quite a delay period before you are able to pick your gun back up again. You are not really going to be able to dash at an opponent or dodge them and then immediately follow up with some damage. However, up against Sniper Rifles you can dodge that first shot and have time to follow up to get kill before your enemy shot again. In most duels due to big delay before Jett can fire, you are going to be making yourself an easy target. Whenever you get, two kills in a round – Tailwind will get another charge. When you combine that with the fact that her ultimate gets refreshed anytime her ult gets a kill, it’s possible to chain together some really great plays.

CLOUDBURST

INSTANTLY throw a projectile that expands into a brief vision-blocking cloud on impact with a surface. HOLD the ability key to curve the smoke in the direction of your crosshair

Duelist implies that the agent has a lot of offense in their kit that sets them up to win 1v1 fights. Downside to duelists is that they typically have the weakest map control effects. One of the Jett’s abilities is Cloudburst which she can hold up to three of smokes, but they are quite small and they don’t last very long. They can get the job done, but compared to Brimstone’s smokes they are pretty weak. However, if you hold the ability down while you are throwing it – you can curve it around corners and control where it should land. You can master it and get these smokes exactly where you want them to go, which is very useful. Keep in mind that these smokes are filled not hollow, which means someone who walks into them will have their vision obscured to the maximum degree. You don’t necessarily want to play inside them yourself but instead setup around them.

UPDRAFT

INSTANTLY propel Jett high into the air

This can be used in combination with her passive ability that allows her to float by holding down the jump button. Remember that about every gun in the game is inaccurate when you are in air, besides shotguns. Because of that, this tool is mostly used to get on top of boxes.

ULTIMATE: BLADE STORM

EQUIP a set of highly accurate throwing knives that recharge on killing an opponent. FIRE to throw a single knife at your target. ALTERNATE FIRE to throw all remaining daggers at your target

Blade storm can one-shot kill to the head, and it has no spread. It’s precision accurate and is perfectly accurate in air, so you can combine the ultimate with Updraft to get instant kills jumping above cover. Blade Storm does have alternate fire which instead of one precise blade at the time, we will send a volley of the blades at the opponent, but it’s very inaccurate. The alternate fire has a bit of RNG spread to it so make sure to be up close to your enemy when you are using it.
