The best DPS character in Overwatch 2
- Ashe, Cassidy, Sojourn, Soldier: 76, Widowmaker
Overwatch 2 hit-scans are incredibly strong in the DPS class right now. All of these characters are lethal, especially when Mercy damage boosts them. The absolute best damage choices are Sojourn and Widowmaker, who have the movement and damage output to shutdown a lot of teams if they are not focused on.
- Junkrat, Tracer
Junkrat had his mine nerfed a little bit which drops him from the top of the pyramid, but he still puts out so much easy damage that he is a strong Damage choice. Tracer is the best DPS flanker in the game and one of the best choices for getting up on the strong hit-scans right now.
- Genji, Hanzo, Mei, Reaper
This group of Damage characters can have their uses, but if they are being countered, you should instantly switch to a different hero on this tier list. Genji and Reaper can carve up the backline of unaware or low-skilled enemies and Hanzo and Mei are just okay picks for the moment.
- Bastion, Echo, Pharah, Sombra, Symmetra, Torbjorn
This group is your take-it-or-leave-it heroes. They are decent in certain situations but also have their downfalls by either being easy to counter or challenging to get a lot of value out of. Echo and Pharah will struggle with the strength of hit-scans right now, and the other choices are some of the easiest Damage characters to counter. You might want to avoid these lower tier list heroes for now.
