Overwatch 2 Console: Which DPS Heroes To Pick in Season 3

Want to know which DPS heroes to pick in Overwatch 2 Season 3? We've got you covered!


Overwatch 2 is one of the most popular PC games in its genre and continues to attract customers from all over the world. However, many people need to remember that this game is also available on the console. In fact, some studies show it is one of the preferred options by gamers worldwide.

The console version of Overwatch 2 is as fun as the desktop one. However, due to the absence of a traditional mouse and keyboard, people may have problems when they start playing. Unsurprisingly, this has an effect on the meta and favors some heroes.

Speaking of metas, Season 3 arrived a few weeks ago, and we’ve already covered pretty muc everything we need to know about it. Make sure to check ESTNN’s OW section to learn more about the hottest heroes, the most recent changes, and so on.

With that said, this article will pay more attention to the best heroes you should get if you decide to play Overwatch 2 on a console. The names you’re about to see in this article have jaw-dropping win rates on console, although they’re not that strong on PC.

Symmetra

The agility hero Symmetra from Blizzard's Overwatch franchise

Judging from the latest stats, Symmettra is the strongest Overwatch 2 hero on a console. With more than a 59% win rate, this hero is in a league of its own, and those who’ve been using the console to play this game won’t be surprised.

Besides the fact that Symmetra received several small buffs in the last few months, the hero is incredibly strong because of the fact that people are playing on a console. Well-placed turrets can be a nightmare to deal with because people are using a controller. Consequently, killing those things is easier said than done.

The same applies to Symmetra’s Teleporter. The latter is one of the best abilities in Overwatch 2, but it shines even more on Console because players can’t kill it that fast. Hence, Symmetra and her team use it to play aggressively or escape when needed.

Another interesting fact about Symmetra is that the hero has around a 1.8% pick rate on Console. This makes it substantially stronger than many other big names in the game,.

Torbjörn

torb

The second name on the list is Torbjörn, a hero that isn’t that popular on PC right now. Even though he is pretty strong in the lower-ranked matches, Torb is yet to shine in Overwatch 2 Season 3. However, when it comes down to Overwatch on Console, we can see that the hero is really good.

The stats from last month reveal that Torbjörn has around a 57.8% win rate, which is impressive, to say the least. These stats make him the 2nd-best hero you can get in Overwatch 2 Season 3 right now.

Similar to Symmetra, Torb is really strong on console mainly because of his Turrent. The ability is hard to deal with even on PC, which was one of the reasons why it received a small nerf. Unsurprisingly, destroying this ability on a Console is not easy.

Besides his fantastic ability, Torb is also one of the tankiest Overwatch 2 DPS heroes, especially when he uses Overload. Consequently, the hero can survive much longer, which is a big plus on Console.

Soldier: 76

Most of you probably didn’t expect Solider: 76 to be on the list of the best Overwatch 2 heroes in Season 3 on a console. Even though he is among the best in the current meta, this hero is known for being a hit scanner. Consequently, people need to have good aim to do damage, which is not easy when playing on a console.

With that said, it seems like the most recent changes to his recoil made have had a massive effect on the Overwatch 2 Console meta. Based on the most recent stats, Solider: 76 has around a 53% win rate, making him the third-best DPS in the game.

Soldier’s current win rate might not be as high as Torb or Symmetra’s, but this hero is definitely a viable option. That said, people who want to play with him must be careful and learn how to aim using a controller. This is not one of the heroes that have an impact on the game just by being in it.

Reaper

The Overwatch 2 hero, Reaper, holds his gun at the ready

The next name on the list has almost the same win rate as Soldier: 76. Some people consider Reaper to be pretty hard to master, but the hero is definitely easier to pick up than other DPS, especially for console players. Consequently, he is one of the names that has a better win rate than the rest in pretty much every season.

When it comes down to Overwatch 2 Console Season 3, Reaper’s win rate sits at 52.88%. Although it isn’t as high as the leaders in this article, he’s definitely a hero that deserves more attention from console players. Let’s not forget that Reaper is powerful versus some of the top-tier tanks in the games.

These 4 DPS heroes are the best in Overwatch 2 Season 3 on console, at least when it comes down to the win rate. However, this doesn’t mean that other options won’t work. Heroes like Ashe and Bastion are very close behind, and the same applies to Sojourn.

What’s interesting about the latter is that she’s one of the least-picked heroes in the game, with a 0.52% pick rate. Even though Soujourn has been a nightmare to deal with on PC, the hero is really hard to play on a console because she can’t land her Railgun shots. Hence, people prefer using other kinds of heroes.
