Don't forget the melee strike when you hook someone. Lots of characters will survive if you just shoot them.

You can actually “chain” abilities to an extent. Shoot (RMouse) -> “Chain Hook” (Shift) -> Shoot (LMouse) -> Melee (V) You can hold your Left-Mouse right after you throw your “Chain Hook” (Shift) to instantly shoot after the enemy dragged in. That helps to save some “seconds” or INSTA-GIB your target.

You can cancel the hook pull into ultimate as soon as the hook hits, and it will still continue to pull the enemy in whilst you are using your ultimate. Great for singling out an enemy hero who can interrupt your ultimate (McCree, Roadhog, etc.)

Be careful when using RoadHog's ultimate. Use it to corner your oponnent for tons of damage, or to repell them away from a checkpoint. Using the ultimate wildely in an open space, you'll become a prime target for nothing.

Roadhog is very good at denying enemy abilities, he can hook enemies out of channeled ults (such as reaper or s:76), he can deny reinhardt charges, whip a mercy away from her team while she resurrects and hook junkrat's rip tire

You can cancel a reload with his heal while still reloading the gun. Try to wait on a reload until you're ready to heal to maximise efficiency with your hooks

You can cancel into hook from a melee attack. If you're close to an enemy tank, you can go Left Shot -> Melee -> Hook -> Left Shot -> Melee for big damage. Very effective for when a Reinhardt tries to kill you.

Due to his lack of shield/barrier abilities, it is better to choose a different tank if solo tanking.

If the enemy team is forming a phalanx behind Reinhardt, flanking and hooking the Reinhardt will drop his shield and expose the enemy team.

Roadhog is one of the few characters in the game that has a way to heal himself FREQUENTLY. So, it's important to priortize healing a tank when you can, but you may be better off healing other targets around if Roadhog is already taking a drink.

He has a very big hitbox, so stay close to him ans use him as a mobile cover.

Just be aware of his hook. And count his bullet, he can only shoot 4 time before reloading.

+5 / -0
Roadhog's hitbox is very large, plus he can heal himself. Instead of running after him to get the kill, consider charging your ultimate on him to kill his teammate's.

Due to Roadhog's large health pool and regenerative ability, he is an excellent hero to focus when you need to charge your ult ASAP.

If a Roadhog is causing you a lot of trouble, switch to Reaper, arguably his best counter. Jump around a lot to take advantage of his smaller clip size.
