Overwatch’s characters are all different, coming from various parts of the world with unique backgrounds. Gameplay-wise, each hero utilizes their kit of abilities to make your character choice very important. While active abilities are always the main thing you think of, the hidden ones underneath are equally vital. Here are all of the passive abilities in Overwatch 2.

Class passive abilities

  • DPS – swapping will let you keep up to 30% of your Ultimate charge instead of going to zero (Previously all Damage characters got an increase in their movement speed, but this was removed).
  • Support – all Support characters have passive healing when they don’t take damage for a little bit.
  • Tank – all Tank characters do not get knocked back as much as others. They also generate less Ultimate charge from healing and damage received.
