Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best)

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Torbjorn

Following the Symmtera rework, Torbjorn is possibly the most situational hero in Overwatch. His turret skills make him an exceptional defense hero and decent on control points, but falls flat when it comes to attacking. Sure, he’s effective on pirate ship and cheese comps, although he has to rely heavily on his other teammates to make things work. We’ll see how things turn out once his upcoming rework hits the live servers. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Bastion

Despite his changes, Bastion still sits as one of the least used heroes in Overwatch. Like Torbjorn, this robot’s kit is quite niche, giving it a more specialized role. Bastion’s turret form can hold down defense points with sheer firepower but leaves it wide open due to the lack of mobility. While a decent Bastion can annihilate a disoriented team, it’s still heavily countered by most of the other Overwatch heroes. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Symmetra

Unlike the other two heroes on this list, Symmetra’s finally a bit more viable thanks to her recent rework. While she was once a specialized hero, the ability to throw turrets and set up nests from afar has made her more versatile and flexible. ON top of that, her alternate fire is much faster and can melt enemies in just a few hits if it manages to connect. However, Symmetra’s still a niche pick compared to the other DPS heroes who can deal more consistent damage than her. Symmetra

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Roadhog

Roadhog’s seen plenty of changes throughout the years, especially towards his hook. While he was a must-pick hero in the past, reworking the hook and adding damage falloff to his gun have lowered his overall effectiveness. Still, Roadhog is a great punisher who can eliminate enemies who are out of positioning. Moreover, his Take A Breather is a great self-sustain tool that keeps him topped up, even without a healer. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Reaper

Reaper is a powerful DPS hero who can decimate tanks and other squishies with just a few hits. Couple this with his recent buffs, and Reaper has finally become a reliable hero who can self-sustain with his passive ability. That said, Reaper has to be constantly up close and personal, opting for a riskier play style compared to the other DPS heroes who can fight from a distance. Similarly, he lacks any offensive skills to make up for any missed shots. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Junkrat

This hero has amazing damage output that’s great for causing mayhem and wiping out enemies who are out of place. Moreover, he can immobilize enemies with his trap and score easy kills with his mines. The main problem with Junkrat is that he’s easily countered by other heroes, especially those who can fight from a distance. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Mei

Mei is the only hero who can slow down enemies with her weapon and ultimate, leaving enemies wide open to other attacks. Moreover, she has a bit more health compared to the other DPS heroes, and she can also self-sustain with her Cryo-Freeze. If used in an organized team, Mei can lead to some easy team kills. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Pharah

Pharah’s one of the few heroes who can achieve and maintain aerial superiority against her enemies. Moreover, her rockets can deal insane damage, even if they don’t hit their mark. She can be a real nuisance to fight against and a great ally who can kill squishies and soften tanks. The only real downside to her kit is her slow aerial speed, leaving her wide open against snipers and hitscans.

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – McCree

McCree is a well-rounded DPS hero who excels at mid-to-close ranged combat. His main fire can wipe out weakened enemies from afar, while his stun + fan the hammer will almost always guarantee an instakill against squishies. His ultimate ability, on the other hand, could lead to an easy team wipe when used correctly. Overall, McCree’s a decent pick if you need a Damage hero on your team. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Soldier: 76

Soldier: 76 is another decent Damage hero who could dish out some heavy damage when fighting from a distance. His well-rounded kit gives him just enough firepower and self-sustainability during team fights or even during 1v1s. While he might not have any extravagant abilities, you can always rely on Soldier: 76 to score some kills. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Sombra

Sombra is one of the most finicky heroes with a rather intricate kit. She’s the only character in the game who can silence enemy skills with her hack, and her invisibility and translocator grant her easy access to the enemy backlines with a sure escape. The only problem with Sombra is her large spread, meaning she has to get up close to actually kill targets. She’s a tricky hero to learn, but the payoff is well worth it. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Orisa

Orisa is the second shield tank in Overwatch, granting her allies some solid cover during any fight. Unlike some of the other shield tanks, Orisa can also fight while her barrier is up. Couple her defensive capabilities with her ultimate and Halt!, and you have a capable Support Tank. Orisa’s only bogged down by her overall speed and her barrier’s semi-low health pool. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Lucio

Lucio is one of the few characters who can provide area-of-effect healing, although at a slower rate compared to the other Support heroes. However, he can compensate this with his speed boost, which can bring him and his team to the objective much faster. Moreover, his speed boost can also make him an effective and annoying flanker who can deal with enemy snipers. The real downside to his kit is his aura’s limited range, requiring his team to stay by his side. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Winston

Winston is the king of the dive meta and is one of the most mobile tanks in the game. While his defensive options are a bit more limited, he can easily distract enemies and wipe out the enemy healers before jumping back to safety. Moreover, his ultimate acts a great way to cause some mayhem and push enemies off point. Unfortunately, Winston doesn’t sit well with some of the other team compositions, such as Deathball. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – D.Va

D.Va is another tank with great mobility, letting zoom in and out of the enemy lines to cause a distraction. Her kit also makes her an effective bully who can pressure an opponent (primarily a healer) with her rockets and canons. One of D.Va’s main highlights is her second life, or when she loses the mech and reverts to her pilot form. This gives her a second chance to poke enemies with her blaster, build up ultimate, and summon another mech without having to respawn. That said, you do lose a tank at this point and have to work with a squishy hero. D.Va cinematic.

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Zenyatta

Despite being a healer, Zenyatta can deal some amazing damage with his projectiles. Moreover, he’s one of the few healers who can heal without having to focus on his target, assuming they remain on his line of sight. His Orb of Discord, on the other hand, acts as a great debuffing tool that makes it easier to wipe out his target. The real downside to playing the omnic Overwatch hero is his lack of mobility and defensive options. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Moira

Like Zenyatta, Moira also relies on the duality of healing and damaging her opponents. She is the best burst healer who can sustain more than one tank during a team fight with both her Biotic Orb and Biotic Grasp. Moreover, Biotic Grasp has a lock-on effect that allows her to deal with flankers, such as Genji or Tracer. The only thing that bogs Moira down is the healing meter that she must recharge by either waiting it out or engaging an enemy. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Tracer

Overwatch’s poster girl can put up a fight by zooming in and out of the enemy backlines with her speedy kit. She’s a great harasser who can annoy DPS heroes and kill healers, crippling the enemy team. Once she’s low health, Tracer can simply zip away or revert back in time and restore all the lost HP. Moreover, her Pulse Bomb is a great way to deal with crowded enemies and score an easy team kill during the heat of a fight. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Genji

Another great flanker, Genji can easily sneak behind enemy lines and harass enemy healers. He’s also the only hero who can deflect enemy attacks, while his Swift Strike automatically resets when used as a killing blow, granting him another ability to use right off the bat. While he might seem weak at first glance, Genji is an absolute monster when used in the right hands. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Wrecking Ball

This hamster is another flanking tank who has one of the best mobility options in the game. His large frame makes him a sponge for damage, although he more than makes up for it with the ability to knock heroes back and send them out of position. Moreover, he can literally swing around any surface and piledrive his enemies, creating easy openings for his team. Wrecking Ball is one of the hardest heroes to use in the game, but he’s also one of the best tanks you can use. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Doomfist

Doomfist is another excellent flanker who can dive in the enemy frontlines and cause havoc before diving back out. All of his skills rely on you getting up close and personal, although his passive ability grants him a temporary barrier that will soak up any damage you will get. One thing that makes Doomfist one of the deadliest heroes is his Rocket Punch – an attack that can one-hit kill any 200-health hero if it manages to connect and land on a wall. The Talon hero definitely has a high learning curve, although he stands as one of the best DPS options in . Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Brigitte

Brigitte is a Support hero, like Zenyatta, can deal plenty of damage. She’s a close-ranged fighter who heals allies (and herself) upon damaging enemies, letting her focus on the fight without having to worry about healing her teammates. This Overwatch hero also has her iconic Shield Bash ability that stuns an opponent upon contact, letting her or her allies finish them off with ease. Couple the Shield Bash with her self-sustainability and solid damage output, and you have the best 1v1 fighter in Overwatch. Best Brigitte skins. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Zarya

Zarya’s one of the more trickier tank heroes to learn in Overwatch, requiring good game sense and tracking. The mere fact that she can grant herself or an ally invulnerability for a few seconds is a massive buff, and any damage taken during that period adds to her personal charge, which increases her overall power output. Not to mention that Zarya’s ultimate can guarantee a team wipe when coordinated with her team. A good Zarya player can melt through enemies, protect allies, and maintain her charge at 100 percent. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Hanzo

From zero to hero, Hanzo has climbed up the meta following his recent rework. While his Scatter Arrow is gone, his Storm Arrows allows him to rapid-fire five fully-charged shots. His projectile speed has also been decreased, allowing him to fire faster normal arrows that are pretty hard to dodge. If you have good aim, Hanzo is hands-down one of the best DPS heroes in . Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Widowmaker

Widowmaker is another Damage hero with a high-skill ceiling, and depending on how you use her, can either carry a team or send it crumbling down. She’s a straightforward sniper who mainly relies on game sense and timing to pull off kills, having the ability to one-shot kill squishy heroes if she manages to land a headshot. Her ultimate, on the other hand, basically provides wall hacks to your entire team. A good Widowmaker is one of the best, if not the best, Damage heroes you can have on your team. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Reinhardt

Reinhardt is another straightforward Overwatch hero who can protect his team with a large barrier. Apart from his defensive capabilities, Reinhardt can squash 200-health heroes with his charge or decimate opponents with a few swings from his hammer. Earthshatter, his ultimate ability, also acts as a great way to stun opponents and leave them open to attacks. Lately, he’s been working well with his synergy Overwatch heroes, Zarya and Brigitte, leading to a surge in popularity. He’s also one of the go-to heroes who’s very beginner-friendly and absolutely deadly in the right hands. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) – Ana

Ana is the game’s best long-ranged healer who can keep her allies topped up without having to join part of the scuffle. Apart from Moira, Ana can keep tanks topped up with rapid shots, while her Biotic Grenade is a great burst healing tool that adds another 50 percent healing boost for a few seconds. She also has one of the most powerful CC tools, her Sleep Dart, that can cancel enemy ultimates when used at the right time. Overall, she relies heavily on her utility and comes with a high learning curve, but the output is definitely worth it. Best Overwatch Heroes

Best Overwatch Heroes, All 28 Ranked (Worst to Best) –  Mercy

Despite the constant nerfs, Mercy still manages to keep her top spot as one of the best Overwatch healers in the game. She is very beginner-friendly, requiring no aim when it comes to healing her allies. Her Damage Boost can also turn the tide during fights when used on the right target, while Guardian Angel allows her to zip around the battlefield. However, Mercy is still one of the biggest game changers thanks to her Resurrect, allowing her to instantly bring back a fallen ally. Having a great Mercy player on your team can keep everyone topped up and keep the fight flowing smoothly. Best Overwatch Heroes
