Best Overwatch Characters


The Top Ten

1 Tracer

Tracer is definitely one of the best Overwatch characters. She has fun gameplay, an interesting character, & she completely dominated her "Death Battle" with Scout. Also, do any other "Doctor Who" fans realize she's a British person who time-travels? Clever move, Blizzard. - JohnOfArcades

Shes on the cover of the game, that's enough to prove how badass she is - khali98

2 Reaper

Very easy character to play and does almost one hit kills. Also if you attack a group of enemies unexpectedly with death blossom, it will give your team a huge advantage - khali98

My favorite character in overwatch and always will

3 Genji

One of the hardest characters to play, but once you master his skills you are almost unstoppable - khali98

The best character in my opinion, must included in the top three. - malamJONES

He's the best and can get kill easily if you master his skill

He is a big loser by Mateo Philippines

4 Reinhardt

With clever use of his shield he is the most valuable tank in the game. Overwatch is about teamwork. Between him and Lucio, both are huge benefactors to aid the team as whole, and not just themselves...something I have noticed many people don't get.

One of the easiest characters to play and can play literally anything as long as its from the front. - khali98

This class is awful, not to mention the character looks ridiculous

5 Widowmaker

I think it's a little too easy to get play of the game with her, and the master's could dominate anyone!

Did they really have to go ham on her accent

I actually love her thank you very much - Peculiar

6 Roadhog

Epic class. I used to look at him and think "who would want to play a fat australian criminal who has a pig nose and has a raspy voice? " That was until I played him. He can hook squishy enemies like tracer, pull her in, and one shot her with his scrap gun. He has take a breather which gives him 300 hp and has a 8 second cool down! amazing.

7 Bastion

Extremely overpowered with his deployable minigun and ultimate ability. Not to be messed with - khali98

This character is especially interesting; he seems to have the most versatile assets

Bastion is overpowered, but boring in my opinion

I hate the Bastion he is too overpowered. - Griffyjoe

8 Soldier: 76

He's kind of like, a normal person in war, and that makes him stand out, and that's nice.

9 Junkrat

Does massive damage with his grenade launcher, good to annoy enemies and also his ultimate can annihilate the enemy by surprise. - khali98

I like tracer better but I think junkrat should be higher up

Fun loving, and fun playing, and funny, and crazy!

Guaranteed 30k damage each match

10 Mcree

His ultimate is one of the most powerful in the game, but his pistol requires extreme precision at long ranges. - khali98

I can't say why, but I'm glad they have him in this game. He's very distinct and his weapons are unique

2nd favorite character in the game! Awesome ultimate and great long range!

The Newcomers

? Lucio Lucio

His lines are so cheesy, and his music gets really annoying. His appearance is alright, except for those ridiculous tubes on his head that look like annoying dreadlocks. His concept is pretty cool; I do like the use of sound.

Extremely effective healer, does AOE healing and also very good damage with his weapon, even
better than some defense heroes. - khali98

The Contenders

11 Pharah

Underrated character, extremely powerful and her ultimate can tear people to shreds - khali98

Rocket classes kind of take skill out of the game

Easy and fun to play. Not to easy though.

12 Sombra Sombra

Hard to master, but best and most strategic hero

13 Winston

Hate the guy. He's characters to basic and boring. He picks on the little guys of the game. He's jump charge is way to quick. He's guns like a big sparkler. I don't like the guy.

Tank with heaps of hit pits, can deal large damage with his ray gun and hit fast moving targets such as tracer. - khali98

Pretty sweet concept. His newly acquired fanbase is a bit unsettling though

He's a cool tank, but his gun is so weak!

14 D.VA D.VA

She can take a lot of damage and bail out of her mech, but her main fire is very weak and she screeches to a near halt when firing. - Jackamalio

She is a very good tank! Especially the fact she basically has two lives, and possibly more if she gets her ultimate.

She has a lot of health and you can never hit her she should be first

Amazing character design. Tanks are op. She practically has 2 lives. Her ult is amazing. She's sexy. The most fun character to play as well

15 Hanzo

It's sad that most of the hanzo mains never switch not contribute damage or kills to the team. At least on that extremely rare occasion where you have a good handouts, he does all the damage.

Requires very high precision, but deals very large damage and easily the best ultimate ability in the game in an open area - khali98

Don't use this character he is the worst he will make u lose

17 Symmetra Symmetra

Considered to be one of the most beautiful and sexy female video game character

18 Zarya

Her shield is the greatest/most annoying/most helpful ability in the game, but I've never found her main attacks very good.

19 Mei

Me Is overpowered with her ice. She can freeze you and kill. Freezing doesn't only come in her power up she can do it with her gun.

The most annoying hero in overwatch. You will be happily running the houses as whatever hero you want, and suddenly you stop moving. You look around but it is too late, you are frozen solid and must watch as you get headshotted with a tiny little icicle.

It's not a terrible class, but it does seem extremely pointless

20 Zenyatta

The combination of damage, healing, and debuffing enemies makes Zenyatta the most versatile support. Holding off a frontal assault or pushing into a heavily defended control point with the Iris is almost a free couple of kills for the team.
