Tier 4 Doomfist, Genji, Pharah, Widowmaker, Sombra
Tier 5 Bastion

Heroes you should not pick

These are the characters we told you to avoid and completely avoid in the latest season of Overwatch 1.

Try not to take these Heroes

This season you need to avoid Doomfist, Genji, Pharah, Widowmaker, and Sombra. Widowmaker is one of the essential heroes in the game but at the higher level, she will be the first hero that the opponents target to kill first. Picking out the enemy sniper has become the norm of the higher trophies in Overwatch.

Completely stay away from these Heroes

The worst hero character to avoid this season is Bastion. Unless you are playing on the entry-level and you are new to the game, with Bastion you will be sitting duck to opponents’ firepower. All those who played Bastion during these few seasons know what we mean. For new players Bastion can be the fire power for your team when others protect and guard you. But we are staying away from Bastion due to the better choices we have in current meta roll.

Then, the rest of the heroes you can select according to the Tier List as per your strength.

So that’s it for this season, and we will be updating this list when we see changes in the meta, including nerfs and buffs.
