All of the best counters for every hero in Overwatch 2

For the below table, these counters were chosen largely for their abilities and how they work well against that particular hero. For example, Ana is a slow moving Support that can be easily overwhelmed by diving characters. Keep in mind that choosing a counter does not mean you will automatically win, but it can work to help you perform better in the match.
