Written by RnL on August 13, 2016
When everything goes wrong, those who have the grit and determinations can always get their way back, and become famous as legends. And the game which is slowly capturing the imaginations of the fans, worldwide is called as Overwatch. The game is played in multiplayer first person shooter mode and is provided with pre-defined heroes with specific skill sets. Overwatch is played by dividing the players into two teams with 6 characters in each. Mainly there are four types or genre of characters from which the player must choose one. There are Offense heroes, defense heroes, tank heroes or support heroes, each with key characteristics of their own. Choosing of these characters often makes most of the difference between the results and one should know the capabilities and hindrances of each characters. Based on popularity and as per their skill sets, the heroes are being ranked.
Offense heroes: The best hero in this category is Genji closely followed by Pharah. Genji has quite a few abilities up his sleeve like shurikens, and a more effective weapon as the Dragonblade. Also he can sometimes deflect the projectiles within a very short span of time. Very agile in his reflexes and being first he has always been one of the first choices for the category of the offense heroes. Though he is sometimes less matched against a few other adversaries, generally he comes as a real game changer.
Among the offense heroes, the character that has come up rapidly in its ranking is Reaper. The wraith form, healing power, long range teleportation, among the key features makes him as one of the major game-changer. Though according to some he is shouldn’t be among the best, but definitely a character to choose for any beginner
Tank Heroes: In the game, the role of the tank is very important for deviating the enemies’ attention and take more damage while other heroes do their task, and nobody does it better than Reinhardt. Be it his shield for that extra protection or the earth shatter power, he is one who always has a trick up in his sleeves. But he is really weak against opponents like Reaper or Symmetra who can single-handedly nullify his presence.
Defense heroes: A defense hero has some serious work to do in a team game, and Bastion is the person who does it quite efficiently. With an increased firepower in the sentry mode one can always expect him to save someone’s back. But the major weakness of Bastion is the same power that makes him strong. It has got a self-healing power and can be used quite effectively, unless it is already taking damage. Also during the self-healing process it cannot move or fire which sometimes can get the situations out of the hand.
Support Heroes: With one of the most useful power, such as teleportation, at her disposal, Symmetra is one character that always finds a place in any team. Also she can do some fairly effective damage with her photon beams. Definitely one of the most sought after heroes in the game.
