3 BEST Overwatch 2 Supports [My Picks] 

This Overwatch 2 Best Supports guide will uncover 5 best supports that players can use in-game!

Overwatch 2 is an excellent sequel to its first Overwatch. Many changes have been brought to several heroes, such as changes in abilities, roles, and many others. Supports are crucial in Overwatch 2 as they can buff their allies and provide healing abilities.

Key Takeaways
  • Overwatch 2 Best Supports are necessary to heal and buff allies.
  • The biggest advantage of using the best support is that, if played correctly, they can create many match-winning opportunities.
  • The disadvantage of using the best support characters is that players have to play behind their teams, providing support; as a result, they get fewer frags.
  • However, supporting the team while providing buffs or healings can change the direction of matches in Overwatch 2.

Support  200 Sonic amplifier Sound barrier

One of the first supports I would like to introduce is Lucío. As a support hero, he is ranked as an S-tier unit, and his overall playstyle includes being in the middle of the battlefield while being able to cause an ample amount of knockback to his enemies. Apart from that, he can also buff and heal his fellow, making him even more useful. 

  • Switch between healing boost and speed boost
  • Mobile support
  • Strong against DPS
  • Not beginner friendly
  • Low health
  • No self-healing

My Thoughts on Best Supports

I have created the Overwatch 2 Best Supports guide based on my personal experience in OW2, along with some research. However, being a support role main in Overwatch 2, I personally prefer using Lucio a lot due to his high mobility and match-winning situations that I can create with Lucio.

However, I have not mentioned other support heroes like Moira or Mercy, although they have a lot of fanbase. But the reason for that was to create an unbiased guide that is solely dependent on the support heroes’ capabilities so that every player reading this guide can benefit from it.
