Overwatch 2 has finally been released, with the original game being shut down. The game will bring new heroes, changes, and features. The new changes will result in a few shake-ups when it comes to the game’s damage heroes. With the switch to 5v5 with a single tank, there are a few damage heroes that are more viable while others aren’t as useful as they were in the original release.
As for which damage heroes are among the best in Overwatch 2, it’s worth knowing that none of the heroes are bad picks. While some of them are rather underpowered, most people aren’t playing the game at the same skill tier as the Overwatch League. It means that team compositions are less important now. For new players or the ones looking to grind up the competitive ladder, which hero you’ll pick will matter.
It’s important to keep in mind that certain heroes are relatively universal while others are better or worse depending on the game mode you’re on and if you’re on defense or offense. It’s also important that you should know what the rest of your team is picking and if there’s synergy between the heroes.
