Overwatch 2 is a newly released 5v5 team-based action shooter. The game is a sequel to its predecessor, Overwatch, which was released in 2016. Overwatch was massively popular and created the initial base for what we call hero-shooter games today.
After 6 years, Blizzard has published the sequel that players have been waiting for a long time. Additionally, the company made Overwatch 2 a free-to-play title. As a result, hundreds of thousands of players flooded the servers with the expectation of finding something new.
Overwatch 2 brought many unique features into the game that its predecessor lacked. Blizzard also made unique changes to make Overwatch 2 better but not wholly different from Overwatch. Similarly, Blizzard has changed some old Heroes and added some new ones to Overwatch 2.

What are Heroes in Overwatch 2?
Every game has a unique set of characters. Various terms are used to address these characters in different games. For example, Apex Legends calls their characters Legends, VALORANT calls their characters Agents, and R6S address their characters as Operators.
Similarly, Overwatch and Overwatch 2 address their characters as Heroes. Every Hero in Overwatch 2 has unique abilities. These Heroes define how a match will play out throughout different game modes.
On top of that, these Heroes are not only unique in terms of their abilities, but they also have different looks, backstories, personalities, and more. You can play as a robot, a cyborg ninja, an assassin, an omnic monk, and a diverse collection of Heroes from the Overwatch 2 universe.
How Many Heroes are There in Overwatch 2?
Although there were 32 Heroes in the prequel, Blizzard added 3 new Heroes to this newly released title. So, currently, there are a total of 35 Heroes in Overwatch 2, and Blizzard will add more Heroes in the future.
Like before, the Heroes in Overwatch 2 are also divided into three categories: Tank, Damage, and Support. Among them are 10 Tank Heroes, 17 Damage Heroes, and 8 Support Heroes in Overwatch 2.
Best Heroes in Overwatch 2 (A Complete Tier List)
Before we start with the tier list, we want to clarify that all Heroes in Overwatch 2 are good in their own way. Based on their abilities, they all come in a clutch in different circumstances, maps, game modes, and team compositions.
However, there is no denying that some of the Heroes prevail in overall scenarios. As a result, these Heroes are highly preferred over other characters because of their versatility and usability. So, this guide is to help you to pick the overall best Heroes in Overwatch 2.
Like any other tier list, this one is also pretty subjective, and you can place any Hero in any of the given tiers. This list is ideal for beginners and returning veterans who want to start playing Overwatch 2 but are confused about which character to pick.
So, without further ado, let’s get started with the tier list. Based on their abilities and usability in different scenarios, we’ll put every character into 5 categories: S-Tier, A-Tier, B-Tier, C-Tier, and lastly, D-Tier.
|S-Tier (Best)||Kiriko, Zarya, Sojourn, D.Va, Sombra, Lucio, Genji|
|A-Tier (Very Good)||Reaper, Orisa, Sigma, ANA, Winston, Ashe, Tracer, Baptiste|
|B-Tier (Good)||Echo, Moira, Zenyatta, Reinhardt, Brigitte, Hanzo, Pharah, Widowmaker|
|C-Tier (Playable)||Roadhog, Cassidy, Wrecking Ball, Soldier: 76, Torbjorn, Bastion|
|D-Tier (Situational)||Junker Queen, Junkart, Mei, Mercy, Symmetra, Doomfist|
Kiriko is one of the latest additions to Overwatch 2. Currently, she is one of the strongest characters in the game. Her versatility makes her the best Support Hero in the current state of Overwatch 2. Her Healing Ofuda is a pretty handy ability, considering you can use this even from behind covers.
She can instantly get to her teammates using the Swift Step. Additionally, Kiriko can briefly use Protection Suzu to protect allies from incoming adverse effects. On top of that, Kiriko carries deadly Kunais with her that deal increased critical damage to enemies when hit.
Her Ultimate Kitsune Rush is one of a kind. With this Ultimate, Kiriko summons a fox spirit that rushes forward, creates a pathway, and buffs the attack and movement speed for allies who follow the fox’s trail.
Zarya is one of the world’s strongest women, a celebrated athlete who sacrificed personal glory to face the mechanical foes threatening her people. Armed with a powerful beam weapon and an arsenal of protective shields, Zarya excels in frontline combat. She is an excellent pick for most of her abilities to mitigate as much damage as possible with low cooldowns.
Zarya’s Particle Cannon is a short-range linear beam weapon. Additionally, her Particle Barrier can create a damaging barrier around her. Moreover, she can use a Projected Barrier to create a barrier around her allies. She can launch her Graviton Surge to pull enemies that fall in its radius.
Her Energy Ultimate enables her Particle Cannon damage to get a buff as she blocks damage using her barrier.
Sojourn is the latest addition to DPS Heroes and can be very tricky to play for the beginner. If you have good aim and can control her Railgun, then she is a relatively good DPS for a long and mid-range fight. Additionally, she also has some good mobility and artillery utilities.
She can use her Power Slide to jump higher up places and move faster. Additionally, her Disruptive Shot launches an energy burst that snares and deals damage to enemies within it. With her Overclock, you can kill multiple enemies with a single shot.
Once a professional gamer, D.Va now utilizes her nimble reflexes and quick thinking to pilot a state-of-the-art mech to defend her homeland. While her Tanking abilities are a little lackluster, her damage dealing makes her an excellent pick for good players.
Her Fusion Cannons are automatic short-range spread weapons similar to a shotgun. She can use a Light Gun once she exits the Mech. Her Boosters allow her to fly in the direction she’s aiming at.
Coming to her defensive ability, she can put up a Defense Matrix that blocks projectiles in front of her. On top of that, she can launch a volley of Micro Missiles. She can Self-Destruct by ejecting her Mech when it takes excessive damage and explodes, causing damage in its radius.
After a while, she can Call Mech to bring a new mech to action while launching her old Mech toward enemies, causing an explosion.
Sombra is a stealth DPS in Overwatch 2. She can sneak into the enemy territory and infiltrate them from close range. Her EMP helps her to take down multiple enemies at a time. Additionally, with Translocate and Stealth abilities, Sombra makes herself a hard target to locate in tricky situations.
Since she lacks raw damage-dealing power, combining Hack, Opportunist, and Machine Pistol, she becomes as good as any S-tier DPS hero. Additionally, she can also see the enemy’s health if they don’t have full health.
Lúcio is not a new character in the game. However, he is that Support Hero who can go toe-to-toe with Kiriko. While he falls slightly short because of his healing capacity compared to Kiriko, his mind-blowing agility compensates for his lack of healing power, thanks to his Wall Ride.
Not only that, Lúcio’s Crossfade ability can kill two birds with a single stone. It works as a Speed Boost as well as Healing Boost for allies. To make the Crossfade more compelling, he can Amp It Up to increase its effectiveness.
For offense, Lúcio uses the Sonic Projectile Launcher that emits deadly projectiles toward enemies. And for defense, he uses the Soundwave ability to make enemies blast away to a short distance and disoriented.
Lúcio can buff nearby allies’ health temporarily using the Sound Barrier ability. But it is his Ultimate, so it takes time to recharge.
Genji is also a mobility character with versatile abilities. He has some of the best movement abilities of all the Heros in Overwatch 2. Genji is really good at close to mid-range fights due to his agility. However, he can still be formidable at any range.
He has a really good passive called Cyber-Agility, which helps him climb vertical surfaces by holding the jump button next to them. His Deflect ability is also quite good for countering incoming projectiles.
Additionally, The Swift Strike helps him to move forward while also dealing damage to the nearby enemies. His Dragonblade lets him go on a rampage for a short duration, making him a nightmare for nearby opponents.
A-Tier Heroes are also very good, and they can easily compete with S-Tier Heroes. However, they are more dominant for their individual characteristics rather than team composition and meta. So, they fall slightly behind their S-Tier counterparts.
While Ashe and Widowmaker excel in long-range fights, Reaper, on the other hand, dominates in close-quarter combats. Thanks to his Hellfire Shotguns, he can literally melt some of the Tanks like Reinhardt and Roadhog in close combat. Although he is a beast in close battles, he lacks his DPS in midrange fights, which is not unsurprising considering his utilities.
To compensate for his mid-long-range fights, he has one of the best passive abilities as a DPS. While his passive The Reaping, is active, he regains his health from the amount of damage he is dealing to the enemies. This is really great in a critical scenario or your support heroes are busy defending someone else.
Additionally, he can teleport from one location to another (within his line of sight) when the shadow step is activated.
Orisa is a pillar dishing out damage in the highest possible way while absorbing damage from enemies in a chokehold. Her strength makes her the best Tank hero in Overwatch 2, taking away the reign from Reinhardt.
Her Augmented Fusion Driver is an automatic heat-based weapon. It deals extensive damage at a closer range. She can use her Energy Javelin to stun an enemy and knock them back. Additionally, she can use Fortify to reduce all damage and heat her weapon generates.
On the other hand, her Javelin Spin can deflect projectiles and block melee attacks at the same time while pushing enemies backward at greater speeds. Her ultimate Terra Surge is deadly, as it can sweep in enemies and anchor down while charging a surge of damage.
Sigma is an eccentric and volatile astrophysicist who gained the power to control gravity in an orbital experiment gone wrong. Manipulated by Talon and deployed as a living weapon, Sigma’s presence on the battlefield cannot be ignored. Although Sigma is a brilliant Tank hero, his damage is too low in most cases, putting him at a disadvantage compared to his counterparts in the same class.
Sigma can launch Hyperspheres at his enemies that implode after a short duration, dealing damage in the projected area. His Kinetic Grasp grants him the power to absorb projectiles before him and convert them into shields.
On top of that, he uses Accretion to gather a mass of debris and throw it at an enemy to knock them down. Furthermore, he can wield an Experimental Barrier that helps him absorb damage.
His ultimate Gravity Flux helps him manipulate gravity to lift enemies into the air and slam them back down, dealing maximum damage at impact.
Ana is one of the most powerful Support Heroes who can compete with the S-Tier Heroes in Overwatch 2. However, her abilities make her more of a long-range Support which suits her for defensive and long-range engagements.
Her long-range abilities can be considered both as good or bad depending on your playstyle. However, even from distances, she does what a Support character must do. This is what makes her a better pick.
Ana carries a Biotic Rifle. With it, she can heal her teammate from long range as well as deal damage to her enemies. She also carries a Sleep Dart with her. When she hits an enemy with it, they get to sleep for a while, making them an easier target to eliminate.
She can also throw her Biotic Grenade near enemies or her teammates, which heals and increases healing on allies. On the other hand, it also damages affected enemies and prevents them from healing. Her Nano Boost Ultimate buffs up teammates, increasing their damage while decreasing incoming damage.
A super-intelligent, genetically engineered gorilla, Winston is a brilliant scientist and a champion for humanity’s potential. He wields impressive inventions such as a jump pack, electricity-blasting Tesla Cannon, portable shield projector, and more with literal gorilla strength. Winston is a superior pick for his defensive abilities and crowd control.
Winston brandishes a Tesla Cannon, an electrical frontal-cone weapon that can fire at multiple targets. He also carries a Jump Pack that allows him to leap forward into the air and slam into his enemies, dealing massive damage. Moreover, he can deploy a Barrier Projector that releases a protective energy dome that can soak in incoming damage and projectiles.
Lastly, Winston packs his spartan rage as his ultimate. Primal Rage allows him to gain immense health. However, he can only leap and punch enemies in that state.
Ashe is a sniper-based character who can deal massive damage from a far distance while being pretty decent at fighting against enemies at close range. Her main weapon is The Viper, which is quite powerful at long to mid-range engagements.
Although she is dominant in the long-mid range, Ashe suffers a little bit in close combat. However, she can use her secondary Coach Gun to knock back enemies and reach a safe distance and use her long-range specialties.
Dynamite is a dangerous and flexible ability that you can use against your enemies to make space for your teammates. It deals considerable damage in its radius and also inflicts a debuff that deals damage over time. In addition, Ashe is not fighting alone because she can call upon her Omnic ally BOB for assistance anytime it is required.
Tracer is a close-range specialist in Overwatch 2. She has excellent mobility and specializes in 2 handed weapons called Pulse Pistols, which are pretty lethal in close combat. You can take down the enemy team’s key players and make them vulnerable to your teammates by focusing your target on that key target.
Since she is a single-target DPS, she has some disadvantages if multiple enemies are nearby and they all target her. You can kill them quickly if you play safe and find lone wolves. However, if you find yourself in a tricky situation, you can use your Blink ability to teleport a short distance and run behind your tanks quickly.
The Recall is also a remarkable ability to rewind 3 seconds and go back and set her health and position to whatever they were at that time. Her ultimate ability is Pulse Bomb which can deal heavy damage to the enemies it is stuck to and also deal damage to its nearby enemies.
If you want only to Support your teammate in any way possible, Batiste is the Hero to pick. All of his abilities are mostly catered to support his teammates entirely. For starters, his Biotic Launcher works as healing equipment and also deals damage to enemies.
His Regenerative Burst also can instantly heal nearby allies and gives them additional healing for a short period. Additionally, the healing is doubled for the allies who are below half-health.
Baptiste’s Immortality Field works as a defensive gadget for him and his teammates. When used, it will protect allies from explosives and save them from dying. To reach a more defensive position, Baptiste can use his Exo Boost passive, which helps him jump much higher than usual.
When he uses the Amplification Matrix Ultimate, his allies can deal double damage to enemies through it. It also amplifies the applied projectiles’ healing effects, making it handy in dire situations.
These characters are decent in terms of their abilities. They have great abilities but lack versatility compared to S and A-Tier Heroes.
Echo is a flexible DPS in Overwatch 2. Since she has so much flexibility and versatility, she can fit into any team composition and help her teammates win the battle. She can stay with the tank to take down any site or make an ambush from the sky; she has it all.
For primary attacks, Echo uses Tri-Shot and Sticky Bombs to deal damage to her enemies. Both of these are hard-to-hit projectiles with greater damage rewards. However, she also has another damage-dealing ability called Focusing Beam. It channels a steady beam for a few seconds, dealing massive damage to enemies with less than half health.
She can use both Flight and Glide to take better positions, making her one of the best mobility DPS in the game. For her Ultimate, she becomes a Duplicate of the targeted enemy hero. This ability is pretty solid to counter specific enemy heroes.
Although Moira is our last pick in the Support character tier list, she is not a weak hero at all. Moira’s Biotic Grasp works both for damage healing and healing. The left click heals your teammates, and the right click damages enemies, which adds to your health.
Her Biotic Orb also has two functions. The left click launches a healing sphere for nearby allies, whereas the right click launches a sphere that deals damage to nearby enemies. Moira’s Fade ability makes her disappear, move faster, and be invulnerable, allowing her to get out of certain places swiftly.
Her Coalescence also works like the Biotic Grasp. However, you don’t have to switch between clicks to heal or give damage. Just aim at your enemies or allies, and it will do the rest.
There’s a misconception about Zenyatta that he is not a very good character. Some of you may agree. But Zenyatta mostly shines when he is coordinating with premade teammates. Otherwise, playing with Zenyatta can become frustrating.
Zenyatta’s Orb of Destruction releases slow energy projectiles to deal damage to enemies. It can also be charged and released to deal big damage. Additionally, his Orb of Discord makes the affected enemies vulnerable while forcing the enemies take extra damage.
He can heal teammates one at a time with his Orb of Harmony ability. However, he is not just good for medium-range combats. With the Snap Kick ability, Zenyatta can deal 50% more melee damage with a more powerful knockback effect.
His Ultimate Transcendence is one of the strongest Ultimates among the Support Heroes. Upon activation, Zenyatta becomes invulnerable, moves faster, and constantly heals nearby allies, creating an opportunity to make a quick comeback.
Reinhardt is a champion who lives by the knightly codes of valor, justice, and courage. Clad in powered armor and swinging his hammer, Reinhardt leads a rocket-propelled charge across the battleground and defends his comrades with a massive energy barrier. Reinhardt is a must-pick for players who won’t find themselves getting bored while wielding a shield to create space for the team.
Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer is a devastating melee weapon that deals extended damage with each hit. Additionally, his Charge allows him to charge forward and smash an enemy against a wall. His Fire Strike enables him to launch a fiery projectile that stuns and deals damage to enemies at mid-range.
However, his signature ability Barrier Field allows him to put a shield in front of him, allowing his teammates to take cover behind it. His ultimate Earthshatter allows him to slam the ground creating a mini-earthquake that deals damage to enemies in its projectile path.
While Ana specializes in long-range Support abilities, Brigitte, on the other hand, is more dominant in close-range engagements. Firstly, she has a Rocket Flail melee. With it, Brigitte can deal damage to her enemies. However, because of her Inspire ability, she can also use the flail to heal her allies.
Secondly, with her flail, she can Whip Shot any enemy using the flail, making them knock away from you. For defense, she equips a Barrier Shield that can protect her and her allies from enemy attacks. But Brigitte’s teammates need to be behind the shield.
The shield can also be used to knock away enemies, thanks to her Shield Dash ability. The most crucial piece of equipment she carries as a healer is the Repair Pack. With it, Brigitte can heal an ally for a short duration which is not very useful in most scenarios.
But thanks to her Ultimate Rally, she can lead her enemies into rough battles while giving them extra speed and health.
Hanzo is a mid-range DPS in Overwatch 2. He is a sniper with robust team utility and area-controlling abilities. With his passive Wall Climb, Hanzo can climb up any flat, vertical surface by pressing and holding the jump button next to that surface.
Additionally, he can use the Lunge to double jump from one place to another and travel reasonable distances. This ability is handy for moving from high ground to high ground. His bow is the primary weapon of combat. With the Sonic Arrow, he can use it to reveal enemies’ positions.
Storm Bow is Hanzo’s main damaging tool which is good for any range. With the Storm Arrows ability, Hanzo can fire multiple arrows instantly. But it has some drawbacks, like less accuracy and reduced damage. Since he is a bow character, players sometimes have difficulty hitting long-range targets.
Coming to his Ultimate Dragonstrike. This ability clears everything that comes into its path. Dragonstrike comes in clutch when a group of enemies is sticking together in front of you.
Pharah is one of the best mobility DPS heroes in overwatch 2. She can quickly move from one place to another with the help of her Hover Jets and Jump Jet. Jump Jet launches her high in the air, allowing her to position herself for well-angled attacks or to escape danger, while the Hover jet helps her to gain altitude and fight from higher ground.
It also helps her to move away from ground attacks, but it has some drawbacks, such as it makes you vulnerable to Hitscan opponents such as Soldier: 76, Cassidy, and Widowmaker.
Her Primary weapon is Rocket Launcher which Fires high-damage splash projectiles at a fairly moderate fire rate. If enemies come too close, using the Concussive Blast will knock away enemies, allowing you to reposition again.
Barrage is Pharah’s Ultimate ability. When she activates her Ultimate, she will bombard the enemy with rapid-fire rockets that deal a large amount of damage on both contact and splash damage.
Widowmaker is the archetypical sniper of Overwatch. She is equipped with a powerful scoped rifle called Widow’s Kiss. She can one-shot-kill almost any heroes in Overwatch 2 with a single fully-charged headshot. It can also pack a delicious punch with a body shot.
She uses the Grappling Hook to reach high grounds for a better sight of the whole map. Additionally, she can throw the Venom Mine into the ground to care for her flanks. If an enemy walks near the mine while it’s armed, it will detonate, poisoning them and any nearby enemies with toxic gas that deals steady damage.
Widowmaker’s Ultimate is Infra-Sight which allows her and her team temporarily gain infravision, showing them the location of all enemies by highlighting their silhouettes with a red glow when they are behind walls or other solid surfaces.
While she excels at long to mid-range combat, she is relatively pretty weak against close combat fights, and her immobility while scoped makes her an easy target. Her biggest threat is often another, better Widowmaker on the enemy team. You have to play safe and deal damage from a distance.
C-Tier Heroes are pretty average in terms of their abilities. They only come in a clutch in certain situations.
Roadhog is a durable killer with a Scrap Gun that’s devastating at close range. Few enemies can escape him and his fearsome hook. His bumped health pool makes him a formidable tank to deal with in most situations. Roadhog can excel in holding points with a dedicated healer, and his damage dealing in quick succession makes him ideal for most Tank players.
His Scrap Gun is a short-range spread weapon with maximum damage at close range. On the other hand, his Chain Hook allows him to drag a targeted enemy to him. Additionally, his Take a Breather enables him to heal himself and reduce incoming damage taken for a short period.
Roadhog’s ultimate Whole Hog allows him to unleash his wrath by damaging and knocking back enemies that stand in front of him.
Cassidy is the best Gunslinger in Overwatch 2 and one of the best revolver-wielding DPS in the game. He can go toe to toe with any heroes in the game. With Peacekeeper as his primary weapon, he can go against any mobile heroes like Genji and Pharah.
Although he has an insane damage-dealing weapon at his disposal, it is somewhat of a trade-off for its complex usability. But, thanks to his Combat Roll, Cassidy gets extreme mobility with an instant reload speed for his weapon. He can pair Combat Roll with Magnetic Grenade to increase the effectiveness of his primary weapon.
His ultimate is Deadeye. When Cassidy activates it, he enters a special targeting mode for a short duration, during which movement speed dramatically slows, and he cannot use any other abilities
Hammond, the genetically-engineered hamster, rolls across the battlefield in his highly mobile Wrecking Ball mech. With an arsenal of weapons and the power of momentum, he will crush any enemies who get in his way. While Hammond has an excellent ultimate that can help him overtake objectives alone, a decent team with a healer can make his abilities useless.
Wrecking Ball has an arsenal of weapons, starting with the Quad Cannons, an automatic assault weapon. Next comes his signature ability, the Grappling Claw, which can be launched to connect to surfaces and swing around the area. Collisions with enemies cause damage and knockback.
On top of that, he uses Roll to transform into a ball, increasing maximum movement speed. Piledriver makes him slam into the ground from above, causing damage to enemies while launching them upward in the air.
Adaptive Shield provides extra personal health, which increases with the enemy count around him. Wrecking Ball’s ultimate Minefield makes him deploy a massive field of proximity mines that explode in enemy contact.
Soldier: 76 is a well-rounded DPS character in Overwatch 2. He excels in both long-range and close combat while sustaining serious burst damage. His Biotic Field abilities support him and his allies to move quickly across the battlefield.
His primary weapon is an automatic Heavy Pulse Rifle that can deal a fair amount of damage to enemies within all ranges. Helix Rockets is also a good DPS dealing ability besides his Sprint, which only helps him move faster and reach a kill zone to support his allies.
His Ultimate Tactical Visor is literally an aimbot. It redirects your bullets automatically to enemies within the vision. However, it doesn’t buff the damage or add any special perks. So, it is not considered unbalanced.
Although he is a good DPS and relatively easy to play compared to other assault heroes, he doesn’t have any specialized skill. He is kind of like the jack of all trades master of none. However, he is an easier character to play as a beginner.
Torbjörn is the most ability-packed DPS character in Overwatch 2. He can defend any objective with his abilities and control any zone. His main weapon is a Rivet gun, which has high base damage and can be pretty lethal against any hero in close combat. The only drawback this weapon has is it is not that good against mid to long-range enemies.
The Forge Hammer is also good at close combat and can heal his damaged Deployed Turret with every swing. Molten Core is a great area-denial ultimate that can force the enemies to walk back before being burnt to death on a high-damage magma floor.
His Overload ability is one of the strongest Ultimates in the game. With it, Torbjorn can gain additional extra health, and increase movement speed, damage, and reload speed. Although he has all these cool abilities and such, he lacks a little bit in mobility. Other than that, he is a perfect combo for new players and veterans alike.
Bastion is an excellent DPS in any fight. Bastion is a hero with two main forms, and it has the ability to transform between Assault, Recon, and devastating Artillery configurations. To switch between the weapon configuration, Bastion uses the Reconfiguration ability.
Additionally, it has one of the highest damage outputs. The turret of Bastion boasts one of the strongest damage outputs in the game, able to rip through shields and heroes alike, yet it is incapable of dealing critical hits. Not to forget, Bastion’s A-36 Tactical Grenade also adds to his damage-dealing capacity.
These characters are very situational and should only be picked for certain playstyles and situations.
The Junker Queen is the uncontested ruler of the chaotic city of Junkertown. Armed with a shotgun, her knife Gracie, and her axe Carnage, she delights in wreaking havoc on the front line of battle. She’s a new addition to Overwatch’s heroes roster, so she’ll need some time to settle into the meta. Although she is a great Tank hero, her lower health pool puts her at a disadvantage in most scenarios.
Junker’s Scattergun is a pump action shotgun that deals maximum damage at close-range engagements. Her Jagged Blade activates when thrown at a target. Also, it can be reactivated to pull it back, impaling any enemy stuck with it. It also has a frangible passive that deals damage to enemies over time.
On top of that, her Commanding Shout provides her team with temporary health and speed. Furthermore, her Carnage ability enables her to wound all enemies before her, dealing damage over time. Lastly, Rampage allows her to charge forward, wounding enemies, dealing damage over time, and preventing them from getting healed.
Adrenaline Rush is a unique ultimate that allows Junker Queen to heal from all damage received over time dealt by wounds.
Junkarts is a passive-aggressive DPS hero in Overwatch 2 that’ll remind you of Raze from VALORANT. He is really good at defending an area with his Steel Traps. While he can deal a massive amount of damage with his Frag Launcher, it is not an easy task to land a precious grenade on a moving target.
Junkrat is also useful even after he is dead. If you’re about to die and confront an enemy at close range, do your best to stay near to them, as Total Mayhem can grant you multiple eliminations even after death. Junkrat is a Good DPS if you have the right skill to use his Grenades and abilities.
Using Junkarts Concussion Mine, he can launch forward or knock back enemies. His Ultimate Rip-Tire is a hell of a show. It is a moving nightmare that can be controlled remotely and explodes upon contact.
Mei is suitable in situations where you need to hide or fall back from the enemy’s line of sight. She has a slowing effect on her Endothermic Blaster, giving her an advantage in most 1v1 fights. She is good at close combat, thanks to her Cryo Freeze ability.
Additionally, while holding any area or defending any objective, she can raise an Ice Wall that will take most of the enemy’s fire. For her Ultimate, she launches a weather control drone called Blizzard that freezes her enemies in a wide area.
Although she is really good in some categories, she lacks the Top DPS in her kits. However, she is an extremely fun character to play, and if you like her playstyle, she has some good benefits for you and your teammates.
Mercy also has excellent abilities that let her aid teammates from a close range. As a result, she needs to stay close to her teammates to make her abilities useful. She can heal one ally at a time with her Caduceus Staff ability.
To fight against enemies, she uses Caduceus Blaster, a low-damage automatic weapon. Her Guardian Angel ability is handy if she needs to get to her teammates quicker. Additionally, her Angelic Descent lets her fall very slowly and allows her to float for a brief time.
Her most useful ability is the Resurrect. With it, she can bring a dead teammate back to life, making it effective in clutch situations. Her Ultimate is called Valkyrie because while it is activated, she can fly, and her other abilities get enhanced, making her deadly for a short time.
Symmetra is also a passive-aggressive DPS in Overwatch 2. She can also give positional advantages to her allies with her abilities. Her Sentry Turrets help her cover any chokepoint, giving her teammates plenty of time to move from one location to another where they feel safe.
Additionally, she can deploy a Teleporter to provide her and her teammates with high-ground or ambush support. Her Ultimate Photon Barrier can split the map in half, giving her allies plenty of time to regroup, reposition, and prepare for the next move. Since she has lower health and reduced mobility, she needs her teammate’s support to stay on the battlefield.
Recently freed from imprisonment, Doomfist is determined to plunge the world into a new conflict that he believes will make humanity stronger. His cybernetics make him a powerful and highly-mobile frontline fighter capable of dealing ranged damage, knocking enemies into the air, and charging boldly into the fray. Originally a DPS hero, Doomfist is yet to find his identity as a true Tank hero in Overwatch 2.
Doomfist’s Hand Cannon is a short-range weapon with a spread that can reload automatically. It has maximum damage in close-range engagements. He can use Rocket Punch to launch forward and knock an enemy back, with the damage increasing if the enemy crashes into a wall.
Additionally, his Seismic Slam allows him to leap and smash the ground dealing damage to anyone in his way. Finally, he can use Power Block to protect himself from frontal attacks, while blocking heavy damage empowers Rocket Punch.
His ultimate, Meteor Strike, makes him leap into the air allowing players to move a targeting circle and later use Seismic Slam to crash into that targeted area.
Will There be New Heroes in Future?
Yes, Blizzard will add new Heroes to Overwatch 2 in the future. They already planned to add a Tank Hero in Season 2. Additionally, more heroes will come along with upcoming Seasons.
