Roles / Hero Types

 
Last Updated:
The heros in overwatch are grouped into 4 categories depending on their abilities and strengths.

OFFENSE


Offense heroes are the damage dealers on their team. Your goal: seek out, engage, and destroy the enemy.
Heroes classified as offense generally have high damage weapons and abilities but lower health than other types. They will also usually have high speed or mobility options.

McCree
Pharah
Reaper

Tracer

DEFENSE


Defense heroes control the battlefield, interrupting enemy attacks and fortifying locations. As a defense hero, your job is to stop the opposing team’s advance. These heros may have long range weapons or the ability to create turrets.

Bastion
Hanzo
Junkrat
Torbjörn
Widowmaker
Mei

TANK


Tank heroes soak damage and break apart fortified positions, like closely-grouped enemies and narrow chokepoints. With high survivability and abilities that protect themselves and others such as shields tanks specialize in protecting allies and leading the charge to the front.

Reinhardt
Roadhog
Winston
Zarya
D.Va
Orisa *new

SUPPORT


Support heroes empower their allies, healing and shielding them, boosting their damage, and providing vital utility. As support, you’re the backbone of your team’s survival. Support heroes are important to increase the overall performance of their team and help the other players stay in the fight and deal more damage. They will not have high damage though so no running and gunning.

Zenyatta
Mercy
Symmetra
Lúcio
Ana *new
