Merely picking six heroes from the roster of Overwatch is an arduous task. There are currently 27 playable characters in the game, and that number will only continue to grow as new heroes are added. With such a large selection, it can be hard to know where to start when choosing who you want to play as. But don’t worry! We’re here for you with this handy guide on some of our favorite picks for each category in Overwatch: Offense, Defense, Support and Tanks.
What are your thoughts on these six? Do you agree with them or not? Give us a comment below and let us know what you think!
Genji: I know that the Overwatch community is divided when it comes to Genji, but he’s my favorite hero. His shurikens can’t be beat! Plus – with a well-timed dash you’ll destroy an enemy in seconds. He also has some of the best voice lines in the game which just adds to his appeal even more.
Reaper: Alongside Tracer, Reaper is one of those heroes who are really fun and enjoyable for players at all levels. The Wraith Form allows him or her to get out of tight spots as quickly as they got into them; while Shadow Step helps him move up close enough to death so that Death Blossom will do maximum damage on its next use (every 20 seconds).
D.Va: While she doesn’t have the longest range, and her shurikens don’t do as much damage, D.Va has one of the best Ultimate’s in Overwatch – which is why I always make sure to pick her when it becomes available on my team! Her Boosters allow you to get around quickly while Halt can be used both offensively or defensively (depending on what your needs are at that moment) for anyone who likes a little versatility with their abilities.
Mei: The latest addition to Overwatch was met with mixed reviews from members of our community but I’m not going anywhere near this hero anytime soon because there’s no better support than Mei right now! With an Ice Wall that can be used for both offense and defense, Blizzard that can deal a good amount of damage if you need it to, Cryo-Freeze which is invaluable in the right situation – Mei has all of these tools at her disposal. Of course there’s more but I’m sure you get the point!
Pharah: The first hero from Overwatch most people want when they start playing because she has an easy learning curve with no major drawbacks…unless someone on your team picks Zarya (which would then force me to pick something else). Her Rocket Launcher will take out opponents before they even know what happened while Jump Jet should never be underestimated as it gives you so many options in how to approach combat situations or objectives. Just make sure you’re playing with a team that can protect you from flankers.
Soldier: 76 is one of the best DPS heroes in Overwatch and his ability, Helix Rocket, makes him an easy choice when attacking objectives – but make sure to pick up your teammates who are injured! His Ultimate is also quite powerful as it doesn’t only heal himself, he heals any teammate within range. Communication and teamwork will go such a long way for this hero.
Junkrat: Nothing says “I’m about to brawl” like Junkrat’s Rip Tire ultimate which has devastating potential if not dealt with quickly or at all by opponents…even better when paired with mines that can force enemies into their own death trap! Just remember he won’t be useful in more complex situations.
Pharah: If you’re looking for a hero who can soar to the skies, dish out damage from above and have full 360 degree vision of her surroundings – then look no further! Pharah’s Concussive Blast is also useful in pushing opponents away while dealing tons of damage at the same time but make sure not to run into your own Concussive Blast as it will knock you back too.
Genji: While being able to turn corners with ease thanks to Swift Strike (E), he has easy mobility around objectives or payloads that require lots of travel distance…like Route 66! Make sure to protect him from flankers though as his health pool isn’t that big and vertical mobility only.
