Top Ten Underrated Overwatch Characters

The Top Ten

1 Symmetra Symmetra

Yeah, I love playing as Symmetra. I think her main fire is cool how it gets more powerful over time, and her sentry turrets, when placed strategically, can be really deadly to the other team. - thatboy6ix

I have played as Symmetra really well. Her turrets help me to attack the opposing team and have less chance of dying. Also she can heal herself very quickly and er barrier is good as protection and can hit the other team if it goes through them giving them enough damage for Symmetra to defeat them. Also her shield generator (ultimate) is good as a defense mechanism as it defends and gives more helf to the team and her teleporter (ultimate) is good to return to the objective and can be a huge help for the team and disadvantage for the opposing team. So underrated. Please give her a chance!

Symmetra is a very capable defense hero, excelling at weakening and slowing enemies with her turrets, even though she's still the worst support in the game. - Jackamalio

She kicks butt, and you don't have to aim. She can teleport u to a capture point, turrets distract, and she can penetrate reinserts shield. Sounds good to me.

2 Zarya Zarya

I didn’t even knew she existed! - SuperAlienGamer

Her ultimate is really powerful combined with D.va'ult or tracers ultimate

So underrated. One of the best ultimates in the game by far.

Probably the most underused character. I barely ever see a Zaria in a match even though she can be extremely powerful in the right hands.

3 Winston Winston

When I use Winston, I don't think. I just act like a jerk to the opposing side. - Ultron123

Winston is one of my mains. He is very powerful because of the jump pack

He needs a banana up his mouth

Don't lie to me... He's TERRIBLE

4 Mei Mei

All mei does is get her ult and go ching cang chou

My favorite hero is dead mei

Too Owerpowered

Mei is bay - GreninjaGuy

5 Ana Ana Ana is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.
6 Torbjorn

Hard Work Pays of

Torb can excel at supporting his team with armor, and his turret can excel at killing or weakening unexpecting enemies, locking down an area. His primary/secondary fire is also devastatingly powerful. - Jackamalio

People always underestimate the engineers- Torbjörn 2016-17

7 Mercy Mercy

Mercy is one of my favorite heroes to play as. - saturatedsunrise

Yeah I know a mercy that's a friend of mine he don't flipping heal he FRIKIN GOES BATTLE MERCY

Mercy is the best solo healer in the game due to her sheer versatility and high survivability without sacrificing healing power or damage capability. - Jackamalio

If you have a good mercy you can do a lot of things but people choose her just to kill people not to heal

8 Zenyatta Zenyatta

This is wrong! ~

Tons of damage and a great healer

9 Sombra Sombra Sombra is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

boop

People seemed to have thought of her as weak, but as long as she is played right, Sombra is a forced to be reckoned with! Boop. - EJ0602

All of the Books

Boop! - pikachu99

10 Hanzo Hanzo Hanzo Shimada is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

Hate hanzo. Love Mei. That is my philosophy. (And I'm a Mcree main)

Probably shouldn't be on this list. He is like one of the most overpowered characters in the game.

Hanzo is not truly underrated, but is still all around fantastic! With proper training, he can simply annihilate any army in his way. His scatter arrows can literally one shot a roadhog!

Can kill you in two shots and people think he is the worst or one of the worst, he is a better Sniper than Widowmaker and Ana.

The Contenders

11 Bastion Bastion Bastion is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.
12 Tracer Tracer Tracer is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

Tracer isn't underrated, she's on the cover of the game, she's the most played character of the game. - GalaticStarArtist12

.-. Not underrated, Children, she's number 1 on top ten best characters

13 Oriza

Oriza is not a character. Orisa, however, is. - thatboy6ix

Wattpad @melodramas_

The most underrated hero in all of Overwatch.

I got the game recently and when I tried out this game before getting it, I fell in love with Orisa. Now I'm pretty much an Orisa main.

Yet, nobody plays her. No appreciation from the fandom. No one really hates her, but be honest - why the heck is Hanzo on this list? People love to play him, and he's overrated. I'm not saying that because he's hard, I'm saying that because you can choose a better hero. Just my opinion.

Your team will love you when you set down your Supercharger.

Plus, all that health, all that rapid fire, the protective barrier... Yeet.

14 Roadhog Roadhog

He is so OP and over used!

No. Road hog is the most overused and overpowered character in the game. I mean, come on, he has 600 health, can heal himself, can bring enemies right up to him with practically no way to escape (unless you’re playing as Moira, where you can use her fade), and his weapon, while close range, is extremely deadly. He’s even worse than Bastion (who isn’t really that bad because his lack of mobility makes up for his amount of damage he deals) - thatboy6ix

Why no?

15 Moira

So underrated... She's very good at picking off weakened enemies that are trying to escape.

16 Bridgette
17 D.Va D.Va D.Va is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

Not underrated - thatboy6ix

love D.va

Goodbye Pharah lol - BryanM

19 Junkrat Junkrat

Taco person get out of silver then and you wont see him

21 Ashe Ashe
22 Echo

25 Genji Genji
