Just days before the start of the Overwatch 2 closed beta, players have compiled a hero ranking based on influencers lucky enough to gain alpha access.
Gamers around the world are looking forward to the Overwatch 2 beta, which begins on April 26th. Before the official launch, an analytical player has created a leaderboard of all updated heroes.
Based on other rankings of Overwatch influencers and pros, it might give a good idea of which heroes are meta and which will have a lower pick rate when the broader beta opens.
Overwatch 2 tier list – Sojourn already nerfed
A key development during the Overwatch 2 alpha was Sojourn being quickly nerfed. Many attendees found the newest hero far too overwhelming, and it didn’t take developers long to make adjustments.
Aggregated Overwatch 2 tier list. Based on the ranking of Jaws, Custa, Samito and Iced. Contributions from community members such as Flats, Super, and YourOverwatch were also considered. Clarifications in the doc. The devs seem to have patched a lot, so there is some recency bias. out of competition monitoring
Using leaderboards from Jaws, Custa, Samito, and Iced, as well as contributions from Flats, Super, and YourOverwatch, Reddit user F1gment- has created the most comprehensive Overwatch 2 leaderboard we’ve seen to date.
Surprisingly, at the top of the list is everyone’s favorite support hero: Lucio. The Brazilian hero is the only one on the list but isn’t “broken” it just doesn’t get melted like other supports.
Looking at the chart as a whole, Overwatch 2 appears to be fairly balanced overall. Only Lucio is at the top, and Roadhog and Junkrat are at the bottom alone.
Of course, with the closed beta starting on April 26th, very soon we will have a much larger sample of opinions about hero rankings to consider.
However, it’s good to know what the playing field looks like as we head into the beta test, especially for those of us lucky enough to have access.
