Finding the best Echo counters in Overwatch may just put you ahead of the game in your next match.
With Echo being the newest hero in the roster, players are scrambling to find out just how to take her down. The best threat is a known threat, after all, and Overwatch players are no stranger to adapting as of late. While this information may change with any new patches, here's what we can currently tell you about battling against Echo.
Best Echo Counters in Overwatch
1. Soldier 76
The consensus from the community is clear: Solider 76 reigns supreme against Echo. His hitscan abilities and mobility on the battlefield make him a prime pick against Echo as he can easily avoid her sticky bombs and make quick work of her in the skies. His strafing is one of the best ways to keep yourself same from the fray.
Who's better to pair against a machine than a hacker? Sombra is immensely useful against Echo due to her ability to hack. This can render Echo useless both on the field and during her ultimate. Sombra's mobility is also an advantage, though she remains squishy in the face of damage bombs and dives from the sky. The range of her hacking may also put a damper on her helpfulness, but is ultimately outweighed if the team pitches in to keep Echo near the ground.
How satisfying is it to pluck a hero from the skies? Roadhog players can definitely give you that answer. Having the ability to hook Echo and drag her down while she's dealing relatively untouchable damage to your team could be the key to winning a match. How can your team eliminate her if you can't bring her down for your DPS teammates to smash about?
