  3. Xbox Series controller keeps disconnecting from my PC

It's connected via Bluetooth and works fine for most of my games (Destiny 2 on Stadia, FFXIV and Genshin Impact on PC).

However, whenever I play Overwatch it keeps disconnecting every few minutes for about 5 seconds, before automatically reconnecting. This is starting to get really annoying as I'll lose control of my character at the most pivotal moments. This has also happened once on Destiny 2, I think.

The controller is new and has new batteries in it.

Any help appreciated.

Desktop? Laptop?

If the former, check to see if the antennas are properly tightened. Recently-ish I took mine off because I thought I didn't really need them since I use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi.

Turns out they're also used for Bluetooth too. And it fixed my connection problems.

You probably already did this but make sure the controller is plugged in via USB and up to date via the Xbox Accessories app on the Microsoft store.

It's a laptop. I haven't plugged the controller in to update it actually so that's a good shout. Thanks.
