How to say no in Overwatch using the new communication wheel is a common inquiry for players logging on after the latest patch. Sometimes, while playing Overwatch the team is talking nonsense, feeding enemy ultimates, or spamming Need Healing at nearly full health and you need to say No.

Luckily the Overwatch team has decided to address this communication problem by expanding the game's communication options.

No is one of the new communication options added in Patch 1.48 so it will need to be manually bound in order to use it in games. Binding new communication options and editing the communication wheel, which can be viewed by holding c, is now possible using the game's settings.

How to Bind New Communication Options
