Best DPS Heroes To Counter Ramattra In Overwatch 2

These are some of the best DPS (damage) heroes to counter Ramattra in OW2.

Ramattra has two forms and the abilities change as per the form you’ve taken on. Due to this, you may need specific damage characters on your team if you see him as a tank in your enemy team. Here are our suggestions for the best DPS heroes to counter Ramattra in Overwatch 2. It is quite early in season 2 at the time of updating this article, but as we see more heroes that are better against this Tempo Tank, we will update this section. 


Best DPS Heroes Against Ramattra in OW2 (Counters)

Overall, Ramattra doesn’t have much speed on his own during his Nemesis form and his Ravenous Vortex has limitations. His shield lasts for a short while and can be useless if placed wrong. His Nemesis form can also be taken down easily by a group of enemies and he will need constant healing to survive.

These are the best damage heroes to counter Ramattra in Overwatch 2.

  • Torbjorn (and his Turrets)
  • Bastion
  • Tracer
  • Ashe
  • Cassidy
  • Symmetra
  • Pharah
  • Reaper

I chose Tracer because when Ramattra is blocking an opponent in his Nemesis form, his back is left vulnerable. This is where she can swoop right in, deal headshots and swiftly get away from him. This is where Cassidy can join in as well – his Magnetic Grenade and Dead Eye can come in handy. If you summon BOB as an Ashe player, Ramattra will have an extra threat to counter apart from Torb’s turret and attacks from other heroes.


Bastion is super efficient against Ramattra – especially if you manage to catch him in his Omnic form, but he can be brutal against his Nemesis as well. His Assault mode, grenade, and Artillery mode can be a good way to drain his health if the Tempo Tank is occupied elsewhere. I would say go for Bastion first if you see a Ramattra in the enemy team.

Symmetra can utilize her Sentry Turrets to deal additional damage and can also use Teleportation to flank Ramattra whenever he is blocking.


Speaking of flanking and teleportation, Reaper can also focus on shooting Ramattra’s back while he’s distracted. If he gets in danger, his Wraith form and Shadow Step will help him escape unscathed.

Pharah because she can fly higher than the range of his Ravenous Vortex. While it may slow down enemies caught in it on the ground and pull them downward, if Pharah isn’t too close to the ground and is supported by a high-flying Mercy, Ramattra can be taken down. In this scenario, Tracer needs to ensure she’s away from the Vortex because she will be significantly slowed down.

All enemies should ensure that you are not nearby when Ramattra triggers his ultimate ability called Annihilation. This is when he automatically enters his Nemesis form. He will then unleash a wide energy swarm that lashes out toward any enemies in range dealing constant damage. The best part (or worst, for opponents) is that while enemies are in the range of the energy swarm, its timer will pause. This will keep the swarm and nemesis form active.

And those are our suggestions for the best DPS heroes to counter Ramattra in OW2. All in all, it will take a team effort to take down Ramattra by basically making him focus on multiple things at a time while your main Tank goes head-to-head against him.

In my experience of playing as him, it feels amazing to pummel through enemies, but if one or more have their ults on, you can be easily killed. You need a healer by your side at all or most times.
