Here’s your guide to the Overwatch 2 Season 11 meta.

Overwatch 2 Season 11 is here and, thanks to some pretty major hero balancing in recent patch notes, we are back with a brand-new tier list and guide to the game's current meta. So, regardless of rank, here's who we think you should be keying in on in your competitive games in Season 11.

Overwatch 2 Season 11 tier list: Overall most meta heroes

Disclaimer: Before we dig into the full tier list for Season 11, it's important to note that this is, as best as we can make it, designed to fit into each rank. This author has played Overwatch 2 since Season 1 in multiple different ranks from Silver to Diamond and fully understands that each rank plays differently. However, some heroes can almost universally play better or worse based on balancing.

Heroes in this tier list are organized by hero type and are tiered from left to right. In the game's current meta, from an overarching standpoint, we believe this is the best spot heroes like D.Va, Lucio, and Pharah have found themselves in quite some time. This is in large part thanks to the June 20 patch that reworked Cassidy's Magnetic Grenade and saw 11 total heroes getting balanced.

Best tanks in Overwatch 2 Season 11

We already had D.Va in S-tier at the close of Season 10's tier list, and now it looks like the hero will perform even better against squishier targets in Season 11 thanks to reduced weapon spread and more damage from her Boosters. This adjustment will have big ripple effects on the metagame, especially when paired with nerfs to Cassidy and Sojourn.

Otherwise, Roadhog nerfs place him firmly at the bottom of our tier list, with Reinhardt and Zarya also struggling thanks to Junker Queen and Mauga's viability in deathball-style compositions. Sigma still feels very strong at range, and other dive tanks like Winston, Wrecking Ball, and Doomfist should remain strong. But, with D.Va being this strong, she remains the top meta pick for dive.

Best supports in Overwatch 2 Season 11

Kiriko finally found a nerf in the June 20 patch, which sees her out of S-tier. On the other hand, Illari just got a serious buff to her Healing Pylon and should become more than just a situational support pick. Otherwise, Lucio, Moira, and Lifeweaver all remain strong heading into Season 11.

Zenyatta and Ana have not gotten any love in recent balancing and may struggle even more so when you look at our top picks for DPS and tank heroes. Mercy, Brigitte, and Baptiste are all situationally strong, but not bulletproof in the Season 11 meta.

Best DPS in Overwatch 2 Season 11

The biggest changes to the Season 11 meta are no doubt in the DPS category, as we are seeing major streaks downward from Cassidy and Sojourn and the rise of more mobile DPS like Pharah. Mei also looks like she'll be even better than before in deathball compositions, which also plays well for Sombra and Tracer, who can both also play alongside D.Va in a dive, coincidentally.

For some sneaky counter picks in Season 11, look to Soldier: 76 and Widowmaker for some anti-air hitscan lethality. For situational deathball plays, we could also see a small power creep to Reaper and Symmetra after their recent buffs, as each pair nicely with Junker Queen on some maps. Otherwise, many of the game's other DPS stay relatively close to where they were in Season 10.

We hope you've enjoyed this Overwatch 2 Season 11 tier list. Stay tuned for more news and updates from!
