Overwatch best healers - Healing abilities list

Overwatch best healers - Healing abilities list
 

This list contains data on all the healing abilities in Overwatch, including self-healing abilities and environmental healing sources. Updated periodically.

In Overwatch, there are many heroes (supports and not) with abilities able to heal themselves or their teammates. For example, Soldier: 76 is a classic DPS, but he is considered a friendly pick for new players because of the AoE heal provided by Biotic Field, which helps to reduce the strain on the supports.

I couldn’t find an updated and easy-to-read healing list, and I believe it can be of great help to new and intermediate players, so I decided to create my own. It will be updated periodically.

  • This list shows the health per second regenerated by each ability, and the flat amount if the ability heals instantly.

  • There are info on the radius/range, duration, and maximum health healed.

  • I have indicated also the type of ability: single target, beam, AoE, passive, and ultimate.
