Overwatch Hero Counter List

Overwatch Hero Counter List

A counter list for each Overwatch hero. Learn all the best counter picks and increase your winning chances. The list is updated periodically.

All the heroes have soft and hard counters, and while some matchups are pretty intuitive (such as Pharah’s weakness against hitscans), often it isn’t easy to figure out the right pick to counter a hero who is dominating our team.

I couldn’t find an updated and easy-to-read counter list, so I decided to create my own by gathering data from several sources. It will be updated periodically.

When selecting a counter, also keep into consideration the map and the best heroes in the current meta: the Tier Lists show the win rate of each hero by map in a competitive environment.

Torbjorn has been reworked recently, so his situation is still not completely clear. I will update the counter list once his place in the meta is well-defined.
