Ok so as you know there are about 3 of us in the world wanting to play overwatch using Linux instead of windows. For a while now we have been using lutris builds as that gave the best performance. Well after some trial and error I figured out how to get it working with Steam Proton.
For those who dont know, Proton is by valve and it is their attempt to make windows games work on linux via the steam client. Proton is evolving rapidly and has reached a point where a majority of games are now working on linux.
Well after searching about overwatch proton everyone kept saying “just use lutris.” But I wanted to see if there was a difference and boy is there.
Using proton results in a higher frame rate and way less stuttering. For the first time, I can say I would feel ok with playing competitive on linux. This is so huge my dudes!
