The Best DPS, Support und Tank Heroes from Overwatch 2 Tier List
Now we’ll tell you which character we think is best suited for which play style. We’ve picked out the best hero for each of three classes.
D.Va as Best Tank
D.Va is always a good choice with her powerful mech. Her defensive matrix, which can deflect projectiles, now lasts 3 seconds instead of just 2. As a result, she can withstand a lot of damage. Additionally, you can cleverly avoid obstacles with the boosters. She can equally protect the supporters on the team, as well as aggressively go forward and create space there. This works not only forward, but also upwards thanks to her mech.
Soldier 76 as Best DPS-Hero
Soldier 76 is one of the best DPS (damage per second) heroes. With him, you’ll have the possibility to collect a lot of kills. The high DPS ensures that you’ll only need a few shots to eliminate your target. Also, his ability to heal himself makes sure that you can risk a more dangerous maneuver. In addition, you can also kill your opponents with the Soldier in a relaxed manner over some distance.
Kiriko as Best Healer
Kiriko is one of the new heroes of Overwatch 2 and makes a fabulous healer. Thanks to her ofudas, a kind of magical healing leaves, you can use her to heal your team even over some distance. In addition, her throwing knives, the Kunais, deal 40 damage on a body hit. On a critical hit, it’s as much as 120 damage. So with Kiriko, you’ll be rewarded for good aim. Additionally, you can even use her to teleport through walls to your teammates if they are nearby.
Personal Tip: When you play Kiriko, the default control on the PC is set so that you heal with the left mouse button and shoot the throwing knives with the right mouse button. We recommend that you swap the two buttons, because at least for us that felt more natural.
