Doomfist may be powerful, but that doesn't mean players should attempt to go solo an entire team with him.
Despite a powerful kit, he's going to need some help to maintain a consistent and effective assault against a competent team. That means it's time to start analyzing which characters Doomfist cooperates with best.
This one might sound odd because a team running McCree and Doomfist for their DPS slots sounds risky, but the two working in tandem is very effective if they communicate. McCree's Flashbang followed by an easy Rocket Punch? Yes please.
Not unlike combo-ing with Winston's Primal Rage, Doomfist can distract and disorient an enemy team up close while McCree readies his ultimate.
Sombra is sort of a funny case, because she's already being touted as Doomfist's hard counter – if they're on the same team they complement one another instead. Sombra's Hack is an invaluable team tool, and Doomfist can capitalize upon it by pummeling heroes who have no access to their escape abilities.
A well-placed EMP followed by Doomfist's Meteor Strike could make for a solid ultimate combo, as well.

If Zenyatta places his Orb of Harmony on Doomfist to take care of any gradual damage and proceeds to paint targets with a Discord Orb, that's a force to be reckoned with. Doomfist ought to be able to take decent care of Zenyatta too, saving him from the occasional flanker.

The clip of a Zarya + Doomfist combo ultimate has been making rounds on the internet, but that's far from the only reason the Talon leader works well with Zarya.
Zarya's Projected Barrier ability synchronizes perfectly with Doomfist, allowing him to inflict maximum damage and be as aggressive as possible for two vital seconds. Once the barrier falls, Doomfist should have enough temporary shields of his own to take better care of himself, and Zarya will have some extra Particle Cannon charge to boot.
