Pro Tips 


  • Always ask your teammates for help when using such updrafts as flashes, baits or even sage wall boosts can help you immensely to get your job done.

  • When your ultimate is not online, it is still viable to perform any of the previous updrafts but for a different purpose as you see fit. If that meant gaining information, depending on the scenario that could be a good play.

  • Make sure to not immediately updraft at a certain spot after popping your ultimate, as if you do so enemies might expect it since most players activate their ultimate and updraft right away. Instead, activate your ultimate at the start of the round to give yourself a room of unpredictability.

  • Keep in mind that enemies can hear your updraft in certain spots if you are not too far away from them, thus, making it harder for you to get the kill but it still is an advantage to your position as they need to react.

  • By bolding “space” you will enable Jett’s passive ability which makes you float in the air. This can be beneficial in scenarios where you need more time to hit your target, so you can float instead of falling right down after your updraft. However, this also makes you more vulnerable to utilize it well
