Lucio is a compulsory pick on Capture Point (KotH). His alt-fire knocks people off the point, his heal and ult benefit from a clustered team, and his speed boost lets your team make it to the objective first where they can more easily defend.

Remember to speed boost aggressively too. Reinhardt loves a good boost when on the attack, and Winston during his ultimate. Meanwhile Roadhog, Reaper and McCree are slowed during their ults. You can nullify this.

Curved surfaces are your friend. You can keep riding on them so long as you jump every so often. Great on certain maps of Lijiang Tower, for instance. Also try riding on the bell in Hanamura A to extend overtime. You're harder to hit while spinning around.

Don't forget to switch up the tunes! Don't stay on healing all game. If everyone has high health, use speed. It helps your team dodge things they might otherwise not be able to and move faster in general. Just don't forget to switch back to healing when your team takes damage.

Your ult, Sound Barrier, only comes into effect when you reach the ground after pressing your hotkey. If you use it while in mid-air and get killed before you connect with the ground, your ult will be cancelled, leaving your teammates in danger.
