Who you choose to play as Overwatch 2 will have a huge impact on your performance and how successful your team will be in the match. While tough opponents aren’t as prevalent as in the first game, picking the strongest heroes at the time will likely give you the best chance to win. With that in mind, here is the current level list of every hero in Overwatch 2 at the start of Season 2.

Overwatch 2 best hero tier list

Dive comps are really strong right now, but if you’re not into that kind of playstyle, there’s some wiggle room to branch out for the strongest heroes. Roadhog turns into a deadly force with Kiriko attached and Sojourn’s rail gun is especially powerful if you can get headshots on it. Both characters can completely replace a game. D.Va, Genji, Tracer, and Winston are all around strong picks that also demand the attention of the opposition when they are on the field.

The next round of choices are heroes with high survivability or good damage potential from range. In general, Tanks are pretty good in Overwatch 2, so most of the class is already represented here. The only oddity here is Junkrat, which has a lot of damage potential and is probably the best Tank buster available in the launch game. Kiriko’s Kitsune Rush proved to be one of the best Ultimates in Overwatch 2, but her kunai attacks require your shooting to be very accurate to use her. That said, he has better healing potential than people give him credit for.

The B-tier selection of heroes is filled with characters that have the potential to take over a game, but it depends on who is using them. These heroes generally require a lot of in-game skill and a bit for players to understand how to get the most out of their abilities and when to use their Ultimates. An unskilled player carrying them can completely waste their potential. In the right hands, however, all of these characters can positively impact their team.

C-tier is filled with Damage heroes who are in a weird spot right now. Cassidy losing his stun is a big hit for him, and it may take a bit of digging before he works his way back into this list. That said, if you aim well, he can be a force. Mei, Reaper, and Symmetra are all characters that have their defenders who love them, but in general, they can be replaced by other characters that are easy to use. The only Tank inclusion here, Ramattra, has a lot of people thinking he’s better than he was at the start of Season 2. Maybe with more time on the character he’ll rise up this list.

D-tier is for heroes who feel like they’re in a rough spot at launch in Overwatch 2. Bastion has one of the worst Ultimates in the game, but can deal a lot of damage in certain situations. . Brigitte losing her stun just makes her a Support who can survive fights easier than others of her class, but that only happens if her teammates help her. He’s here now. Doomfist’s jump to the role of Tank has lost a lot of what made him such a fun character, so, like Brigitte, he’s the type to survive when his teammates are around without many ways to work with them. Torbjorn’s turret is easier​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​, one, to take down in Overwatch 2 in a single fight, without so many shields in the way .
