Overwatch Hero List. Watch How The Pros Play Each Hero

Overwatch fps Blizzard
Who's your hero of choice?

With the addition of Doomfist onto the roster totaling the heroes to 25, it’s quite commendable that Blizzard is able to keep including diverse and creative characters in a lineup already filled with a range of skill and design. But with every new addition, it shakes up the formula in terms of balancing; every new hero has to account for already established abilities and counters. You risk alienating certain abilities when changes to the composition is introduced, but Blizzard has done a fantastic job keeping each hero relevant in team strategies. Let’s see out how pro plays keep each hero a threat on the battlefield.
