Overwatch DPS Tier List December 2021


S-Tier heroes are those that are must-picks in any game, regardless of map or team composition. This is due to their overall power in the right hands. Some can solo a whole game if played correctly.

1. Cassidy

Cassidy has a decent ultimate if you're playing in lower ranks, but his star power is the strongest when it comes to his abilities and regular damage attack.

2. Tracer

Tracer is a strong pick for any team. With her speed and cooldowns, she can be very good in the hands of a player willing to put in the work.

3. Ashe

Ashe is arguably one of the best DPS in the game thanks to the damage she can put out with her primary fire. The only downside is she requires precise aim to hit headshots.


A-Tier heroes are those that are good with mostly any team composition, but players should be careful who they pair them with. These heroes are very powerful on their own.

4. Echo

With Echo's high learning curve, it takes work to master her, but her speed and damage are all but unmatched. With this character, you'll climb the ranks easily.

5. Bastion

Bastion's high damage makes him a force to be reckoned with. His low mobility makes him hard to get used to, but he can be good in the right hands.


B-Tier heroes are those that are a little more niche. These picks depend on map and team composition much more.

Warning: These heroes can be easily counter picked if the enemy team plays well.

6. Junkrat

Junkrat is a decent pick for teams. He doesn't require a lot of aiming or steady shots, and can output a lot of damage quickly.

7. Sombra

Sombra depends a lot on her teammates to really be good. She's best at the back of the team composition or playing for picks.

8. Torbjörn

Torbjörn is best played in closed off maps. His turret is good for dealing with flankers and his Ultimate ability is strong.


C-Tier heroes work well with teams that have good communication. These are strong, but the player has to be specifically skilled in them to have an effect.

9. Hanzo

A decent pick, Hanzo's abilities are strong and his Ultimate is probably one of the best in the game, but he requires pixel-perfect precision.

10. Mei

Mei requires practice to get perfect, but she is good for forcing the enemy to switch their strategy up.


D-Tier heroes are those that will mostly only hinder the team. These heroes can be easily countered but, with enough practice, can be decent.

11. Doomfist

Doomfist requires so much support from his teammates that it's hard to play on his own and will usually just hinder the performance of the whole team.

12. Reaper

Reaper is best played in lower ranks due to most players being new. In higher ranks, he can easily be defeated.

13. Genji

Genji takes a lot of practice from players to really be good. Once you've mastered him, though, it also takes synergy from the team to play side-by-side.

14. Soldier 76

Soldier 76 is overall a not-so-great pick for the team. He's basically a worse version of Ashe, which says a lot. His Ultimate ability is just aimbot and he mostly serves to be an intro character for new players.


F-Tier heroes are ones that require buffs or can be easily picked off. These heroes usually aren't worth the pick and will almost always be difficult to play with the rest of the team.

15. Pharah

Pharah requires constant healing to stay alive for more than a few minutes in most ranks. Pretty sure that says enough about the character.

16. Widowmaker

Widowmaker, unfortunately, makes the bottom of the list. Her constant needing healing is a huge detriment to the team.
