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

She is definitely the best

Cheers loves, Tracer is the best!

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

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

My favorite character in overwatch and always will

One of the most intimidating characters in the game alongside roadhog. His dual wielding weapons are sick, his personality isn't annoying like tracer and his outfit; well I wish I cosplay as him because it reflects myself and I love him.

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

He's so hot

5 Soldier: 76

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

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 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

Did they really have to go ham on her accent

I actually love her thank you very much - Peculiar

8 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.

Gay porn star

He's awesome

9 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

He is worse than my ass

10 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

The Contenders

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

Definitely has one of the best ultimates in the game. Should at least be in the top 7. - BrianScott01

12 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

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

14 Pharah

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

Rocket classes kind of take skill out of the game

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

Easy and fun to play. Not to easy though.

15 Sombra Sombra

Hard to master, but best and most strategic hero

16 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

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.

He does a lot for the team

18 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

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

Mei gets so much hate but she's my favourite.
Does that make me a troll.

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
