OverwatchCounters > Winston

Winston has extremely high mobility for a tank hero combo with an easy method for killing low hp targets. Winston does, however, lack long range and high amounts damage this, in turn, makes him weak to effective Winston counters. Since his general strategy is to attack a low hp target by jumping to them, it sometimes can put him in a rather weak position. Winston Counters are heroes who do large amounts of damage and pretty much kill winston before he can kill them. Reaper and Bastion are among this Winston Counters and are mostly tank hero counters in general.

Winston Hero Counters

Winston has simple playstyle and is easy for any new player to pick up and play. This largely due to Tesla Cannon being so darn easy to use and do damage to enemies.

Winston has no problem squashing offensive heroes such as Genji and Tracer. Telsa Cannon is something these heroes cannot avoid when up close to winston.

Winston Hero Counter Notes:

  • Bastion: Simply put Bastion can kill out damage winston fast. This is mainly due to Winston’s tesla cannon not having enough single target damage. This makes bastion one of the most ideal winston counters.


  • Reaper: Yet another tank reaper has no trouble shredding. Reaper is possibly the best Winston counter alongside bastion.
