Overwatch is one of the most popular titles which has been published by Blizzard. Overwatch was released back in 2016, and since then the game has been running strong among fans and the community. Overwatch has more than 30 playable characters which are also called Heroes.
Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter game that features team-based combat. Each team features six heroes, and these heroes are further differentiated into three primary roles – Tank, Support, and Damage.
Each of these heroes features unique abilities, and a player must learn the effective use of these abilities to take advantage in the game. The list of Overwatch playable characters includes the following: Ana, Ashe, Baptiste, Bastion, Brigitte, D.VA, Doomfist, Genji, Hanzo, Junkrat, Lucio, McCree, Mei, Mercy, Moira, Orisa, Pharah, Reaper, Reinhardt, Roadhog, Sigma, Soldier: 76, Sombra, Symmetra, Torbjorn, Tracer, Widowmaker, Winston, Wrecking Ball, Zarya and Zenyatta.
Well, in every fighting game, we usually have a tier list, which lets us determine which character is stronger than the other. In Overwatch, as each character possesses different powers and abilities, it makes some heroes abilities stronger and more dangerous than the others. In the article below, we have made a tier list of Overwatch characters.
Tier S – Orisa, Sigma, Symmetra, Reaper, Zarya, Moira, Mei
Tier A – Wrecking Ball, Doomfist, Winston, Hanzo, Ana, Lucio, D.VA, Pharah, Baptiste
Tier B – Reinhardt, Mercy, Bastion, Junkrat, Roadhog, Brigitte, Sombra, Torbjorn, Genji, McCree
Tier C – Ashe, Soldier 76, Tracer, Zenyatta, Widowmaker
We know that not every player will agree to this list and some might think Ashe and Soldier 76 are underrated. Well, it all depends on how effectively you can utilize a character in the game, as some players do incredibly well with Widowmaker defying this tier list completely.
For a quick refresher, last month Blizzard added a new hero Sigma to the game. Sigma sits in S-Tier on the above-mentioned tier list, so it is making quite a name among Overwatch fans and the community as the newly introduced tank hero.
Sigma has the power to control gravity which he received when his scientific experiments went wrong. Sigma has five interesting abilities which have been detailed below.
Sigma launches two gravitic charges, which bounce off walls and implode after a short duration, damaging enemies within a sizable radius.
Sigma propels a floating barrier to a location of his choosing. He can dismiss the barrier at any time.
Sigma freezes incoming projectiles in midair, converting them into shields.
Sigma gathers a mass of debris and flings it at an enemy to knock them down.
Unleashing his full powers, Sigma takes flight, lifts enemies in a targeted area, and launches them into the sky before slamming them back down.
