Finally, decided to jump into
Overwatch yet still undecided which hero to pick? Take it easy with the best
heroes you can use below!
Beginner DPS Heroes
His straightforward abilities
make him one of the perfect heroes to use for your Overwatch game. Soldier 76
is highly effective at countering any aerial heroes (e.g., Pharah) while
targeting an extensive array of lower-health enemies.
While the cheapest Overwatch
hero, one must never underestimate its capabilities. Bastion is a robot that is
able to transform into a stationary turret, which deals with vast amounts of
damage. It can also heal itself and convert it into a small tank.
When used properly, Reaper could
be one of the most powerful characters. It is easy to get some damage with his
dual shotguns as well as the ability to escape fight quickly through his wraith
Pharah has so many different uses
that will definitely blow your mind. If you've already shot a rocket launcher
before, this hero won't stress you out when utilized. Though, she's quite more
involved in shooting a rocket launcher as she has Jet Packs as well.
Beginner Tank Heroes
Unlike some characters, Reinhardt
just swings his large hammer. What happens after is just a history. He
is best used for his shield to protect teammates.
He is a big guy with tons of
health. Roadhog can even heal himself by simply drinking from his tumbler. This
is to promote rapid health recharge. Roadhog has several uses too, like
dispensing a lot of damage and pulling enemies to him before finishing them off
with a melee attack or an incredible, massive blast to the face.
This South Korean
player-turned-mecha pilot is an easy-to-learn tank that is able to escape
combat and heal herself quickly.
Much similar to Reinhardt, the
main skill of Orisa is to lay down a shield; however, it is a protective shield
that can be deployed anywhere. And while her shield is not as strong as
that of Reinhardt's, it tends to recharge too quickly.

with relatively powerful healing skills. So, you don't need to worry about
doing too much damage. Mercy is specifically helpful for quads with
One of the most versatile heroes
available. Moira is popularly known for her healing abilities as well. For
instance, her ability to passively regenerate her health pool could be highly
effective against mobile, hard-to-reach, or small heroes like Tracer or Genji.
She's been ranked as one of the
easiest heroes for new players. This is because her healing ability does not
require much preciseness, plus her flair only needs little to no aim.
Which hero should you choose for
your first match? That merely depends on a hero that looks cool or sounds good
to you. Figure out their different roles and decide which you like best. And
remember, practice makes perfect.
Good luck, and have fun!
