You faced a hero that you couldn’t deal with and didn’t know how to counter him/her? Well, you are at the right spot! This Guide will cover some tips and tricks about counter picking, the best counter picks for each hero, as well as the heroes that are countered the most.

Tips and Tricks

  • First things first, the most important thing to know about counter picking is who counters whom. Based on that you can make a decision which is the best pick for which map and for your team composition. Don’t waste time trying stuff out, if the other team has heroes that are countering you switch asap. For example, if the enemy team has Pharah and Reaper and you’re Zarya or Winston, you might want to switch to D.Va e.g., as they will most likely overpower you and you will be useless to your team, wasting valuable time.

  • Knowing the team compositions that are the most played in the current season is very important in order to keep your team's synergy when you are counter picking.

  • Don’t pick a hero that you cannot play even if it’s the right counter pick. If another player from your team has to switch, make sure he/she feels comfortable with what they’re supposed to switch to. If there is a hero on the enemy team that has to be countered and supposedly one of the DPS on your team has to switch but he doesn’t know how to play the countering hero then other people would have to switch in order to keep the team composition. Communication is very important as you might need more than one switch at a time.

  • Don’t switch too much. Counter picking can be helpful but not when it’s done throughout the whole game. You will be useless to your team if you don’t manage to use not even one ulti from the constant switching. Up to two times is okay, when it’s really needed. However as mentioned before- COMMUNICATE, maybe someone else can switch, which would be better for the map or situation.  

  • In the different divisions it’s different when it comes to counter picks. The higher the division, the higher the skill level is, which means that it is harder to counter pick something as people are already used to the counters and they can most likely avoid some of them.

  • Counter picking shouldn’t be your main strategy.

  • Focusing on the team composition and the best synergy with heroes everyone feels comfortable playing is more important.

Most Countered Heroes

  • Pharah

Pharah’s flying abilities make her hard to reach for many heroes. This is one of the main reasons why she is countered so much. Good Pharahs are very difficult to deal with if you don’t have a decent Soldier 76 or a McCree on board.

  • Genji

The efficiency with which Genji deals with your back line (supports) can be very bothersome, so he gets countered a lot in Competitive. A skilled Genji can be very difficult to catch and shoot so having a hero that has an attack that deals spread damage like Winston or a character that keeps players movement speed under check like Mei is a must. McCree is also very good as the Flashbang keeps the cyborg ninja immobile for a very brief time, just enough for the cowboy to shoot him down.

  • Tracer

Tracers mobility gives her the opportunity to kill the support heroes and to also deal fair amount of damage to the tanks. Just when you think you got her, she just Backtracks and you are back where you started from, which is what makes her an annoying opponent. Keeping her in check should be your team’s priority. A Winston or Mei is a must when you’re having troubles with Tracer for the same as Genji.

  • Bastion

He is always a pain in the ass, especially when he is shielded by Reinhardt and/or boosted by Mercy. This combo is very dangerous and needs to be shut down asap. Bastion is very easy to counter, as long as there is a single person paying attention to him and focusing him. Someone like Genji or Pharah should take on that important mission.

  • Soldier 76

With the latest buffs Soldier got, he is a very strong hero to face and if your opponent knows how to play him very well, he can present a big nuisance. In general, Mei is an incredibly good counter among other heroes mentioned above.
