- When playing Neon, it is clear that you need to become a master of movement. One cool mechanic is how you could use your stuns and abilities while in the movement mode of Neon. Keep that in mind and practice it to be able to comfortably create opportunities on the go for yourself.
- Neon walls normally don’t go through objects. However, if you aim higher than an object or obstacle, it will go through it when thrown. This is a cool mechanic that could create slight “lineups” for neon walls, try it next!
- When you have your slide and ultimate available, you can perform a cool double slide trick as by activating the ultimate you automatically recharge your slide giving you a free additional one. This is how pros do a double-slide stunt.
- Remember that your stun has a short activation time, meaning enemies might try to peek you as soon as you throw it to catch you off guard. Mastering the timing of it will help you become a well-rounded neon player.
- You can perform a neon backslide by jumping and pressing the “S” key the moment you drop down. Or by simply letting go of “W” and pressing “S” at the same time. That is while initiating the stun of course.
- With neon you practically have 4 stuns as each one will bounce to stun (2) spots. However, you could always use it to double up on one spot, it is not necessary to have a lineup for each spot on the map to play the agent.
- When you place a wall to enter site, don’t walk in it in a straight line as opponents might enter to kill you and if you’re not a moving target you will be very easy to shoot.
- Try your best to avoid sliding close to an opponent as the closer you are the easier you become to be killed. If you’re a bit far, they will have to aim/track you before being able to shoot you down.
- Your ultimate has a headshot damage multiplier, even though sometimes it is better to aim at the body, if you’re close enough/able to try to aim your ultimate on head level to kill enemies faster.
- The range affects your ultimate’s damage, therefore try your best to avoid long-distance fights with it.
