Since Ramattra’s release in Overwatch 2, arguably the most prominent part of his playstyle is his Ultimate. When used in the right circumstances, it can last for a long time and completely annihilate the enemy team. In the Battle for Olympus event, like other abilities for the heroes that appear in Deathmatch mode, Ramattra’s Ultimate has been changed. To complete the Voice of Poseidon event challenge, you will need to learn how it works. Here’s how to use Ramattra’s Ultimate to get 25 final blows in Battle for Olympus in Overwatch 2.

How to do the Voice of Poseidon challenge in Overwatch 2 Battle for Olympus
The idea behind completing the Voice of Poseidon challenge during Battle for Olympus in Overwatch 2 is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is deal 25 final blows to enemies with your Ultimate over the course of the event. Players who have already unlocked Ramattra in regular play should be quite familiar with how his Ultimate works, as he hasn’t received many major changes compared to other heroes in Battle for Olympus.
When Ramattra goes to ult, he instantly assumes his Nemesis Form, and a large area of effect around him will drain nearby enemies of their health. Unlike the normal Ultimate with a three second timer that doesn’t go off while an enemy is in range, this version will only last 20 seconds. Additionally, your strikes will launch slightly spread out bursts of water, and your Ravenous Vortex ability will suck in enemies and launch them into the air during this time. Outside of Ultimate, Ravenous Vortex still slows down enemies and knocks them back. If you’re taking a lot of damage, you can block and significantly reduce incoming damage from the front while damaging them with your area of effect.
With this version of his Ultimate, Ramattra must first chase down enemies with low health when active to succeed. Typically we would say for him to use anyone in good health around him to keep him running like a battery. With the 20 second timer, your kill potential is hit quite a bit as a lot of people will be playing Roadhog, Reinhardt, and Junker Queen who are all significantly tanky in this mode. If you can focus on a Pike, Pharah, or Widowmaker, it will be much easier, but that won’t happen every game. Another good tip is to know where the extra health is. If you can grab him before the enemies while he’s in his Ultimate, you’ll gain a significant advantage.
Also, the important wording used in the challenge description is “final blow”, not just eliminations. The damage of your Ultimate has to be the final turning point for the enemy to die for it to count towards the challenge. This means that if an enemy is low on health and someone comes and steals the kill, he won’t count towards your progression.
