The larger the multikill, the quicker kill streak, and the closer one is to an objective will all increase a player's "High Score" score. Each of these variables will increase a player's "Sharpshooter" score. An example of this would be if a player kills an enemy Lúcio in the middle of casting Sound Barrier for his team.

The Play of the Game will sometimes focus on the wrong character by accident. As the months wear on, Kaplan and company have updated and reworked Play of the Game multiple times. With fans questioning why certain characters seemed to be favoured over others, game director Jeff Kaplan published the top three PotG Heroes in both Quick Play and Competitive mode.

Players will need to complete at least one match in order for personal gameplay highlights to show up, with the game storing up to five of the most recent highlights from the active gaming session.
