Best Overwatch Characters


The Top Ten

1 Tracer

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

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

She is definitely the best

2 Genji

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

Genji is OP with his deflect ability. It can send bastions ultimate right back where it came from. Genji is so much more agile then anyone else.

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

He's op and lit if u can use him

3 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

Reaper is an indestructible and OP character that just wants everybody to, "DIE, DIE, DIE! "

I've had more reaper play of the games than every other hero I play... so yes I like reaper

He is awesome

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 load of health and in total its 750 for fudge sake. She has her own mech, I mean WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT? "

She is the best for everything especially when you know how to use her.

5 Junkrat

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

He's my favorite character my first player of the game and my first character that I got a quadruple kill with

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

Spamming granades actully gets quite a lot of damage and kills

6 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

Best overwatch hero. He protects his team with his shield and his ultimate is amazing. He my all time favorite..

He looks boring at first but once you master him you can crush everything! Which is quite fun.

7 Mcree

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

By far the coolest character, in my opinion, but he is also one of the more difficult to truly master.

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

Badass Clint Eastwood looking ass

8 Lucio Lucio

He's a pretty OP healer. Um... yeah use him for attack on point games yeah awesome. I swear I've saved the game with 30 secs left playing as him. Try him. Oh and always vote the HEALER! - PBoi_N_J

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.

He's awesome

Ok guys, Kermit the frog here. Coming at ya with another bad flute remix. Here comes that boi.

If you don't know yet, I'm refering to him as a frog.

9 Roadhog

A self-healing tank with a hook for easy kills? How could you go wrong? (easily)

Best character in the game.

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.

This guy I said awesome for defense! On Hanumara... B.A.! I've played as him and he can hold the first choke point LIKE A BOSS! - PBoi_N_J

10 Soldier: 76

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

He should be the best he had helix rockets that shoot out of his gun he can heal himself and he has a better ultimate then tracer he should be number one and he can Sprint abling him to get out of situations

Good for beginners of overwatch

He's pretty good

The Newcomers

? Marcus

my main

? Orisa Orisa

She horible.

The Contenders

11 Bastion

Bastion is an overpowered monster capable of taking out the entire enemy team without even moving. As you scream out rage and break your game bastion will be watching and he shall drink your tears when you are sad and make you sad when you are happy.

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

It's that because he has a bad ass machine gun

12 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

Hard to play as, but once mastered you can ONE SHOT PEOPLE AND SUMMON A MAGIC DRAGON OUT OF THIN AIR...

So for all you pricks who say hanzo sucks.

he doesn't you suck and you're to self centered and stuck up to admit you're bad with a character from a game, me in particular, I'm pretty good with him because I'm a bow guy in games I always chose a bow and they're all really the same for bow mechanics, so yeah I like him he's one of my three mains.

Thank you

13 Mei

If you think about it, Mei is one of the most OP (Over-Powered) characters in the game, her icicle is as sharp as anything and her freeze blast is totally OP, by freezing the opponent and then shooting an icicle. Plus she has an ice wall and she can heal without being hit by anyone. Then again she is very unprotected when she gets out of her healing thing.

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.

Mei of the game

14 Widowmaker

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

She is awesome and is great for people how want to snipe

Widowmaker is the best hero by far and all the others are horrible

Best Sniper in the game.

15 Mercy

Fun to play as until genji needs healing again - Haumea

Best healer

Fast heal rate, can buff damage, can fly to allies to close gaps for healing or move around more efficently, can glide through the air, and her ult is reviving downed allies.

Mercy is best girl. - Jackamalio

16 Winston

Is it also worth noting that he's voiced by Crispin Freeman? Who I think does a pretty good performance and kinda makes me wanna play as him if I ever get the game. - OnyxDash

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

I like him but hard to play sometimes

17 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.

Zenyatta's baller yo! Get him in the top ten

Best out of all of them. Still my main.

18 Pharah

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

Shes good at a lot of things and has compelling relations with the others.

The reason I like this character is because of her missle barrage, her explosive shooting weapon, and how she can somewhat fly. Its very fun using her. - AlBrEv2003

19 Sombra Sombra

I like how her hacking ability can prevent enemies from creating annoying shields

Hard to master, but best and most strategic hero


She's a good hero but she's so annoying and she's a pussy foot

20 Symmetra Symmetra

Cool main attack (despite lack of range), fantastic turrets, a cool ultimate, and looks pretty hot and sexy.

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