Question: How do you play

There are two ways to play the game. Casual fun, or serious. If you are just looking for some all action fun then there is a lot to enjoy here. Try all the Characters. Enjoy the mayhem and fun of taking out the enemies with the wild abilities and weaponry.

If you like to take it more seriously then you need a team. or at least a partner to work with and co-ordinate your Game Play.

Try All the heros

Some may not seem like your thing, but they all have strengths and their unique abilities mean you may find they are more fun to play than you think. Many of them will be more useful in specific situations or in certain Game Types. And being able to play a Support hero when others are being Offense will keep your team going for longer.

Team Up

If you have friends who play, or are happy to make friends online then this will really help. Talking to your team mates and knowing what each other are doing is important to having a good round.

Having an organised team of several players who know each other is key to victory. Any team with a plan and the right set of heros will wipe the floor with the less organised.


Remember to melee. With all the options for weapons and abilities it's easy to forget your melee. It is a powerful offensive move that will damage or finish off an enemy. Many of the heros have strong long range weapons and abilities to use but when countering an enemy at a capture point at close range these can be hard to use and may have a slow fire rate so give them a thump as well.


The biggest hint from the action so far seems to be the general consensus that Bastion is overpowered. Many people complaining and many more just enjoying playing that character. He is fun to play and is great at defending objectives. But he only really becomes dangerous when supported by other Support / Tank heros. On his own he is not too hard to take out. The advice from the devs is to counter Bastion with Hanzo, Genji or Widowmaker. But there are other heros who can do the job.
