Overwatch DPS Hero tier list May 2020 has some interesting developments since the last time we ranked the DPS Heroes. We see some Heroes moving back to dominance after the shake up caused by Ashe as the DPS meta works around her.

Our tier list for May 2020's takes into consideration the adjustments that are currently on the PTR.

Overwatch DPS Hero Tier List May 2020

S Tier

The Heroes in S Tier do their job and are the best at it. Recently, it seems straight damage is valued over mobility as barrier busting is a must. Ashe received a huge buff last month, and she's still up in the top tier now. McCree, despite getting a slight nerf to his Flashbang, is seeing a rise in pick rate once again, returning second to Hanzo. Widowmaker also is seeing a resurgence in pick rate this month.

  • Hanzo
  • McCree
  • Ashe
  • Widowmaker
  • Torbjorn

A Tier

A Tier Heroes typically are last month's S Tier Heroes that have been nerfed in some way. Mei is getting some nerfs with the duration of her freeze stun, but still manages to do well. Some B-Tier heroes like Soldier: 76 have returned to prominence, while Pharah drops off. Most of the flankers sit comfortably here.

  • Mei
  • Genji
  • Tracer
  • Doomfist
  • Soldier: 76

B Tier

In B Tier we have Heroes who are more situational than those in A. The current meta and trends may not be so kind to those here. We do see the newest Hero Echo residing here, as her kit is proving to be highly situational. Some of the Heroes in the lower tiers have specific ways to be played around, meaning their utility in high level play is diminished.

  • Echo
  • Reaper
  • Junkrat
  • Pharah

The Rest

The bottom of the barrel this time. There aren't too many surprises here: Bastion is a one-trick pony that's easy to play around and Sombra has been nerfed into the ground without much hope for relevance.

  • Sombra
  • Bastion
