Uprising is latest game mode introduced in Overwatch, and it is also the second PvE game mode in the game. This game mode is a 4 player co-op event, set on the King's Row map where you have to fend off waves and waves of Null Sector Omnics to save King's Row from further destruction. The main Uprising game mode only allows you to choose from Reinhardt, Mercy, Tracer and Torbjorn, whereas the all heroes version lets you pick and play whichever heroes to your heart's content. Players can choose from 4 different difficulties to try and beat the game, which are Normal, Hard, Expert and Legendary. The Legendary difficulty is actually very hard to play in and many players are struggling to win a game on it and unlock the "Distinguished Service" achievement. By following this simple guide, you can now have an easier time playing Uprising in Legendary difficulty. Try it out and you can thank me later.
I am sure every one who played Uprising at least once will know this. You can gun down the drop pods before it even land on the ground. Torbjorn’s turret will also target the drop pods when they initially spawn in the air, giving you a hint of where will the drop pods land.
This tip is also a no-brainer. Multiple Slicers will spawn from different directions at a time and sometime it takes a longer time to get rid of them. Reinhardt’s barrier can shield off the Slicers’ lasers from dealing damage to the payload, and this will greatly help you unlock the “Handle With Care” achievement where you need to deliver the payload with over 80% health in Uprising on hard difficulty.
Another great tip for unlocking the “Handle With Care” achievement. Take out Slicers and make sure the Detonator doesn’t self-destruct at the payload, while killing off the other omnics before they take you out. If you can’t kill the Detonator in time and it is about to explode, the next tip will save a great amount of the payload’s health.
Yes, that’s right. When playing in the Legendary difficulty, often times you will not be able to take down the Detonators in time as their health is as thick as my textbooks. Before it is about to explode, Reinhardt can activate his barrier and place the barrier in between the payload and the Detonator to nullify its damage.
Headshots to the omnics will cause a mini-stun to them, which is crucial to surviving as they will stop attacking you while you destroy them.
One quick way to destroy a Detonator is to damage one part of it until the armor plate falls off which exposes its orange colored core and attacking it. Attacking the core deals critical damage to Detonators, even with Reinhardt’s hammer.
As long as your payload is still ‘alive’ and you’re the only surviving player of your team when the clock strikes zero, it will still activate and you can continue to push it to the third point. One neat trick to know is that when the payload activates, it will destroy all of the Null Sector Omnics that were spawned during the activation of the payload.
