Widowmaker is definitely too high on the list.
Ultimates in Overwatch 2 are meant to be feared, designed to be the most powerful tools on the battlefield, striking fear into every opponent. And then, on the opposite end of the spectrum, some are undeniably awful. Theres a clear disparity between some of the ultimates, and the community has had its say which reigns supreme.
The discussion, sparked on Reddit on Jan. 23, started with one Overwatch 2 player sharing their perspective of each ultimate as a support player. In the tier list, characters like Cassidy and Hanzo sat the bottom of the list in the “These are ults?” tier, while Ramattra reigned supreme at the top in the hilarious “I am suffering, as he has,” ranking.
While this OW2 gamer may only play as a healer, their ranking perspective was clearly one many agreed withthe community soon echoed their agreement with most of the rankings on the Jan. 23 listing, though there were a few exceptions.
First, there was a wave of support players nodding their heads in agreement. While most other supports concurred, however, it didnt stop the damage and tank players in OW2 coming in to throw their two cents into the debate.
Some players said that they have nightmares about the Rammatra (sic) ult and, in particular, Ana players admitted they tend to just accept (their) fate after an Orisa ultimate thrusts them inside a death circle.
Other players even wound back the clock, remembering when Hanzo ult was feared by people, and nostalgically recalled when his ult could be boosted by Mercy.Image via Blizzard Entertainment
One ultimate that popped up in the discussion for how good it can be was Torbjörns ultimate, though it came with a caveat; you have to throw it correctly. Despite being placed in the second lowest tier, the Swedish damage heros ultimate might not be being used to its fullest potential, many of the wiser Overwatch gamers said.
His ultimate, according to members of the community, seems to be best used for zoning. The fact its long-lasting in nature helps push players off the payload or point.
Theres been a ton of changes in the meta since OW2 was released, and with hints at ultimate nerfs and buffs coming in season three, theres always a chance some of the bottom-tier characters will see some needed improvements.
Hopefully, Blizzard has spotted this gem in the OW2 forums and taken a few notes; Rammatra players may have to prepare themselves for a few nerfs in the near future.
