- Similar to Sova's cOwl Drone, your camera can be a useful for peeking tool before pushing an area. You can often bait the eyes of an enemy and have an ally shoot them while they're distracted.
- Try to plan ahead and know what you want to do before the buying phase of a round begins. This will give you more time to run around the map and set up your traps.
- Cypher's qCyber Cage can be activated from anywhere as long as you're looking at it. This includes through walls and even through his eSpycam.
