Communication is key no matter what online game you’re playing. In MOBAs like League of Legends it’s crucial for you to communicate with your teammates to pull off coordinated ability attacks, and in FPS games like CS:GO, teammates have to watch each other’s backs. However, we would argue that communicating in Overwatch 2 is more important than in any other game, and the best way to do so is by using the communication wheel.
To change the communication wheel in Overwatch 2, you have to first Overwatch 2 and go to options. From there, you’ll see the ‘communication’ tab which you have to navigate to. Scroll down from here, and you’ll get the option to choose eight out of twenty six available communication prompts that you can use in the game.
We’ll be going through everything you need to know about changing the communication wheel in Overwatch 2 to ensure you’re able to communicate with your teammates perfectly.
To make the process of changing the communication wheel easier, we’ll be going through everything in a step by step process. All you have to do is follow it and you’ll be able to change your communication wheel in no time.
The first thing you have to do is launch Overwatch 2 and go all the way to the main menu. From there, you have to press either esc or the option menu depending on what you’re playing the game on. Select ‘options’ in the window that pops up and you’ll be taken to a completely new window.
In the options window, you’ll see multiple options you can choose from on the left side of the screen. You want to navigate to communication and click it to open the communication window. Scroll down from here until you reach the eight selected communication wheel options.
All you have to do now is to click the option or prompt you want to change to bring up a list of other prompts you can replace it with. Continue replacing the prompts you don’t want with those you want until you’re satisfied with your communication wheel.
Remember, the max number of prompts you can have in the wheel is eight out of the twenty six available communication prompts. There’s no way to have any more than eight, so you’ll have to be a little selective.
Using the communication wheel is the best and quickest way of communicating with teammates in matches. Therefore, it makes sense that the way to use it would also be quick and easy. If you play Overwatch 2, all you’ll have to do is use the d-pad. To be more specific, you’ll have to press down on the d-pad to bring up the communication wheel and then select the prompt you want to use.
When it comes to using the communication wheel on a PC, the default key for it is C. However, depending on your key bindings, you might have to press some other key. To make sure this isn’t the case, we recommend you head over to the controls section of the game’s option menu and return everything to default.
Of course, you can also use voice lines and emotes by opening the communication wheel and then left clicking or right clicking depending on what you want your character to do.
With that being said, the communication wheel is rather limited when it comes to what messages you can send, so if you have the time and are in a safe location, it might be a good idea to type up the message you want to convey. Naturally, this only applies if the message you want to get across can’t be conveyed through the communication wheel, such as if you want your team to attack in a specific way to counter the enemy tanks.
As we’ve said above, you’re able to choose from a total of twenty six prompts to add to your personal communication wheel. Those prompts are:
We recommend that you don’t add emote and voice line as they can be used even without them being in the communication wheel. Therefore, they’ll only unnecessarily take up a spot that could be used by some other prompt.
