Tips Tracer vs Mccree Tracer portrait Overwatch Hero Mccree portrait Overwatch Hero

It should be fairly obvious but the second a Tracer gets hit by a flashbang she's dead. If you manage to flashband Tracer use your secondary fire, Fan the Hammer to put in that 150 damage before the flashbang wears off. The medium damage and fire-rate of the primary fire can easily force tracer to use a recall fairly early as well. The only time you need to worry about Tracer is when you're using your ultimate Dead Eye, which Tracer can shut down with any of her attacks.

General Counter Tips Reaper Reaper portrait Overwatch Hero

Any character with a large body (Winston, Roadhog, Reinhardt, D.VA in her mech) is easer ultimate fodder for Reaper. His shotguns have a slight spread so keep close and rain death upon them.

Comments D.va vs Mercy D.va portrait Overwatch Hero Mercy portrait Overwatch Hero

While not directly countering her, a D.VA will struggle to inflict lasting damage on an enemy healed by Mercy.

General Counter Tips Mei Mei portrait Overwatch Hero

Don't allow Mei to catch you alone, even a bad Mei player can pretty much take anyone down 1v1 unless you have escapes at your disposal.

Comments Tracer vs Mei Tracer portrait Overwatch Hero Mei portrait Overwatch Hero

While not a specifically hard counter, an aware Mei player can pretty much deny an enemy Tracer whether it be by slowing her and forcing her to use blink charges to escape or by freezing her outright, which pretty much means Tracer is a goner with her low HP pool.
