Things to Keep in Mind while Playing Mercy

  • Ensure that there are other squad members who will cover for you while you revive the teammate because there’s a short animation that plays out.
  • If you are swarmed by enemies with hardly any team members around you, decide if you want to revive or save yourself by flying off.
  • Another thing to consider is who to revive – it’s best to revive your tank or the top performing DPS hero.
  • Mercy‘s revive ability has a 20-second cooldown so use it wisely.
  • She works pretty well with some heroes and forming a two-hero combination with them may help you dominate the match.
  • Being Mercy makes you the target of enemies since your teammates won’t die because of your constant healing. Due to this, avoid heading out alone and fall back if you end up by yourself.
  • Your weapon isn’t very powerful, so as Mercy, your main goal should be healing the team and using the Guardian Angel and Valkyrie abilities to keep moving around the map.
