In early rounds, it’s best to avoid direct contact with the opponent since the Recon Bolts will be requested many times throughout the round. Besides that, Sova is particularly effective against enemies who are just holding default positions. One such chokepoint in Bind is located outside of Hookah. The B short area is often crowded with enemies who are trying to push into the B site. A properly executed Shock Bolt volley can easily eliminate and damage multiple defenders in the very early stage of a round.
YouTuber & Redditor Snapiex’s recent post shows us a really effective way to deliver Shock Bolt volley in that exact location. As demonstrated in the video, Snapiex lined up the Shock Bolts from the front side of Crate. However, the entire execution must take palace while your teammates are actively guarding the B Long area as well. Since the lineup requires you to be at an open area, having one more teammate inside of Hookah will ensure your overall safety.
Few seconds after the execution, both Shock Bolts will precisely land outside of Hookah. In most cases, the volley will be effective against enemies. Often, attackers tend to hold off-angles at that exact location, making them easy prey for the Shock Bolts.
