Overwatch 2 Tank Tier List [Season 8]

See how your favorite Overwatch 2 heroes do in our Tank Tier List by reading on.

Tanks in Overwatch 2 have undergone significant alteration. In Overwatch 1, each team had two tanks, but Blizzard is getting rid of one, so there will only be one solitary tank that will have to be the squad’s leader. All of the tank heroes will be ranked in tiers in our Overwatch 2 tank tier list.

Key Highlights
  • Out of the 37 competitive gameplay units in Overwatch 2, you get 11 dedicated Tank heroes. 
  • How reasonably a tank hero takes all the brunt while also maintaining a decent pool of health is our primary factor in deciding Overwatch 2 rankings.
  • Based on that, Winston and Doomfist are currently the most viable performing units in Overwatch’s 2 Tank domain. Both characters will take you to success without a hefty investment of effort.
  • Roadhog, however, ranks the lowest in the Overwatch 2 Tank Heroes tier list due to its weak performance. Nevertheless, it’s a fun-to-play-with kind of hero hence unacceptable for easy situations.

S-Tier

Overwatch 2 Tank S-Tier

The S-Tier Tanks are quite strong in the current Overwatch 2 Game meta. Any of these tanks may be used to win games on their own by a skilled player.

Doomfist

Hand Cannon
  • Seismic Slam
  • Power Block
  • Rocket Punch
  • The Best Defense
Meteor Strike

Doomfist is a formidable, extremely mobile frontline warrior because of his cybernetics. He can pound the ground, throw opponents into the skies and off balance, knock them off balance, and rush into the battle with his Rocket Punch, in addition to providing ranged damage with the Hand Cannon. He is one of the Best Tank Characters in our Overwatch 2 Tank Tier List.

When confronting a closely packed group, Doomfist dives out of sight before unleashing a stunning Meteor Strike that sends him tumbling to the ground.

Winston

Winston Tank
  • 350 (role queue
  • 200 (other modes)
  • 200 armor
Tesla Cannon
  • Barrier Projector
  • Jump Pack
Primal Rage

One of the most maneuverable Tanks in the game, Winston can cover a considerable distance in a single bound and attack his foes. His Tesla Cannon is extremely hazardous to most low-health characters since a general barrier cannot stop it because of its splash effect.

He is a persistent threat that can quickly disrupt any opponent squad’s damage relentlessly, thanks to the mobility his Jump Pack provides.

Ramattra

  • Pummel (nemesis form)
  • Void Barrier
  • Nemesis Form
  • Block (nemesis form)
  • Ravenous Vortex
Annihilation

Ramattra has two forms, the Omnic form, and the Nemesis form. This makes him a dual-form hero where both of his forms have to be switched into using an ability and they will have time limits as well as cooldowns. He instantly topped the charts of Overwatch 2 as his forms had a big impact on the game on release. He has amazing abilities which make him a formidable tank character having multiple options for playstyle and intense flexibility.

Further, he has a plethora of abilities which we will be getting into in more depth below which will give a further breakdown of what kind of character Ramattra is and what he brings to the table in Overwatch 2, as well as the reason he is worthy of the S tier.

A-Tier

Overwatch 2 Tank A-Tier

We have now reached the A Tier in our Overwatch 2 Tank Tier List. Since they are also fairly robust and efficient on both attack and defense, we advise you to pick the A-Tier Tanks as soon as possible.

D.VA

D.va Tank
  • 150 (pilot)
  • 350 (mech, role queue)

  • Defense matrix (mech)
  • boosters (mech)
  • micro missiles (mech)
  • Eject (passive ability)
  • Self Destruct (mech)
  • Call Mech (pilot)

The unusual tank D.Va has some mobility. She can easily close a distance to the adversary thanks to Boosters and her extremely high health. She is a formidable fighter in a one-on-one battle due to her tremendous close-range damage output.

Her defense matrix shields her allies from hostile fire and is effective against all incoming bullets. When fired at close range, micro missiles cause a lot of damage. Within Tank class, she is a deadly flanker who consistently inflicts damage on the adversary.

Reinhardt

Reinhardt Tank 
  • 325 (role queue)
  • 200 (other modes)
  • 250 armor
Rocket Hammer
  • Barrier Field
  • Charge
  • Fire Strike
Earthshatter

The toughest of the Tanks on our Overwatch 2 Tank Tier List, Reinhardt generally has high Health and a sizable barrier that enables him to shield his allies from harm.

Reinhardt is mostly focused on defense, but he can also pose a lethal offensive threat with his high-damage Rocket Hammer and Charge ability to slam opponents up against a wall. He pays the price for all this in that he can only use one occasional distance strike and is essentially forced to battle at close range.

Junker Queen

Name Role Health Primary Weapon Abilities Ultimate Ability
Junker Queen Tank
  • 450 (role queue)
  • 300 (other modes)
Scattergun
  • Jagged Blade
  • Commanding Shout
  • Carnage
  • Adrenaline Rush
Rampage

The newest tank in the Overwatch franchise, Junker Queen, excels in ruthlessly wounding opponents and bolstering her teammates; hence she is ranked in the A-Tier of our Tank Tier List. She is a berserker-like figure who thrives when she inflicts harm on her enemies.

Players who choose the Junker Queen can assist their team in executing pushes and provide them the advantage they need to succeed in constrained chokepoints. Players may take the initiative and support their teammates to lead their team to success alongside Junker Queen.

B-Tier

Tier-B

Although the B-Tier Tanks in our Overwatch 2 Tier List are rather unremarkable, they are nevertheless quite powerful in terms of the game’s current meta. However, don’t depend on succeeding in every match in which you take part.

Orisa

Name Role Health Primary Weapon Abilities Ultimate Ability
Orisa Tank
  • 275 (role queue)
  • 125 (other modes)
  • 275 armor
Augmented Fusion Driver
  • Energy Javelin
  • Fortify
  • Javelin Spin 
Terra Surge

The most recent changes to Orisa‘s powers were made to reflect that she now resembles a powerful mechanical centaur. She and Reinhardt used to tank by creating barriers and redistributing damage to their squad.

But as the squad composition changed, several heroes underwent a total overhaul. With her updated brawl-heavy playstyle and new skills, Orisa should be able to establish her position in the tanking meta.

Wrecking Ball

Name Role Health Primary Weapon abilities Ultimate ability
Wrecking ball tank 450( role queue), 150( other modes, 100 armor Quad cannons Grappling claw, Roll, adaptive shield, piledriver Minefield

The tank known as Wrecking Ball has a hamster inside a large metal robot that really can change shape into a ball. Wrecking Ball can roll across the battlefield with his high degree of mobility, knocking opponents off balance and protecting objectives with his area-denial abilities.

For Overwatch 2, he just received buffs that raised his armor to 150 from 100 and his health to 550. (up from 500).

Sigma

  • Rivet Gun (weapon 1)
  • Forge hammer (weapon 2)

  • Kinetic Grasp
  • Accretion
Graphics Flux

Sigma can create walls that will protect his crew from harm. He can also change gravity as an astrophysicist, which he may utilize to confuse and severely harm his enemies. 

In Overwatch 2, Sigma mostly uses hyperspheres to do damage. Sigma uses gravitic missiles as his main weapon; they can bounce before collapsing and inflicting damage on adjacent enemies. The Gravitic Flux is the Ultimate Ability of Sigma. When used, Sigma will launch himself into the skies and start focusing his power on the intended target.

When an enemy is under the effect of Gravitic Flux, they will be propelled into the sky and deal 50 damage before being smashed down and taking 50% of their base HP in damage.

C-Tier

Tier-C

The use and talents of the C-Tier Overwatch 2 Tanks fall short of expectations. You could still have fun and win games with them despite this. However, stay with the heroes who are ranked higher on our Overwatch 2 Tanks Tier List.

Roadhog

Name Role Health Primary Weapon Abilities Ultimate Ability
Roadhog Tank
  • 700 (role queue)
  • 550 (other modes)
Scrap Gun
  • Take a Breather
  • Chain Hook
Whole Hog

The distinctive hook of the unusual kind of tank known as “Roadhog” is used to draw any adversaries who are weak or defenseless to him, allowing him to do tremendous shotgun damage to them.

Among all the tanks, Roadhog cannot withstand the greatest punishment, yet he can do enormous damage to any foe caught off guard.

In our Overwatch 2 Tank Tier List, all of the characters are currently ranked in order. If you see a hero climbing the Tank Tier list, it could be time to switch your main character. How would you have ranked the Tanks in the Tier List? Let us know in the comments area below.
