Overwatch 2: How to Choose the Perfect Hero | Role Guide

There are tons of heroes that play different roles in Overwatch 2. However, the perfect one for you will depend on your playstyle and personal preference.




As of now, Overwatch 2 currently has 33 heroes on its roster, with a new one slated to be added prior to its release. Of course, the overwhelming selection of heroes you have to choose from can make it confusing which is the perfect hero you should choose.

While it ultimately boils down to your playstyle and preferences, some heroes just stand out among the rest. But how exactly do you choose which hero is perfect for you?

How to Choose the Perfect Hero in Overwatch 2

Choosing the perfect hero role involves a handful of stuff you have to keep in mind. A lot of players won’t even bother specializing in a few heroes but would instead try to play all roles, even all heroes. Of course, if you’re new to the game, then you’ll want to do just this to familiarize the heroes and their abilities.

However, as you keep on playing the game, you’ll need to specialize in a certain role and focus on a few heroes within that role. The optimal strategy is to specialize in 3-4 viable heroes in their respective roles. If you want to use a tank, you can either pick Zarya or Reinhardt. If you want to go DPS, you can either pick Genji or Tracer.

The gist here is to settle on a certain role and master it. That said, let’s have a look at the certain roles in Overwatch 2 to help you decide which is the perfect role for you.


A tank’s main role is to create space to allow the DPS players in your team to score some kills. In Overwatch 2, you only have main tanks as the role of an off-tank has been removed. As such, you’ll want to adapt to the playstyle of going in the frontline as a brawler in order to create space for your team.

However, the best thing about tanking is that it’s actually easier now compared to Overwatch 1 since two healers will be there to keep you alive as much as possible. Also, tanks have received a buff that allows them to remain knocked back for a shorter period.

But then again, there’s no more duo tank pairing, so you’ll definitely feel more pressure since you’ll be playing the role of two tanks in one. If you watch to create space for your team and stay in the front lines, then specializing in the role of the tank is for you.


In Overwatch 2, your role as a support is to keep your teammates alive as much as possible. However, since DPS heroes received a movement speed bonus buff, it will mean that your role as a support will be a lot harder since it will be easier for enemy DPS heroes to target you.

As such, positioning will be key here. Supports also received a buff that automatically heals them whenever they don’t take any damage for a certain period of time. This can be your saving grace in most situations, especially since the enemy team will most likely target you first.

On the bright side, you only have one tank to heal as opposed to the duo tanks in Overwatch 1. This means that it will be a lot easier to help your tank and keep an eye on any enemy coming to target you.


DPS are the main damage dealers in the game. As mentioned earlier, this role has received a movement speed bonus which allows them to move around the battlefield with ease. This also means that the game will have a faster pace than its predecessor.

If you want to deal damage to enemies and rack up as many scores to win the game, then the DPS role is for you. Do take note, however, that this one requires you to play more actively and aggressively in order to get some kills. It also requires more mechanical skills than any other role.

Fastest Easy Ways To Unlock BUSO HAKI V3 In Pixel Piece

Make it fast and easy by reading this guide!

Doben Villaruz



Some of us who enjoy playing video games are also fans of anime like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece, and they’re very popular right now because they not only have a TV show but are also featured in various games using mods and occasionally fan-made games. I know that some of you haven’t yet acquired the Buso Haki, but if you want to do so much faster than everyone else, then this guide is just for you.

Buso Haki V3

For those who are new to the game and are unaware of this process, you must wait until nighttime (in-game) because you’ll be entering the Vaill Island, where you must first reach Level 70+ because you won’t likely survive if you don’t level up. You’ll also need $5000 in order to activate a quest from an NPC in that island.

So when you get to Valli Island, you’ll run into an NPC wearing a hat who will give you a mission that requires you to pay $5000. Once you do so, a new objective with the words “Battle 4 Ancient Gorilla of 0/3” appears up on the bottom right of your screen. At that point, you must defeat the Gorilla Boss.

The boss gorilla must be found and defeated three times; he deals a lot of damage when he pounds the ground and hits you with his shockwave fist, thus having teammates who are at the same level as you or who are strong enough to defeat the gorilla will actually speed up the battle.

It is actually recommended to find the respawn point every so often to make your life easier. When you get to the part where the gorilla is, you need to do this so that when you die, you won’t have to go to a random island and it will be a hassle to navigate through the world again just to find one island and beat the Gorilla boss.

The Quest pop-up that was mentioned to you earlier on screen states that you should defeat the Gorilla boss at least three times. Once you defeat the Gorilla boss, you will level up, receive an item called “Soul of Armament,” and learn the skill Armament Haki.

When the Gorilla boss dies, it will take some time for him to respawn, and you will need to defeat him again until you finally defeat him on the third try.

Now that we have defeated the gorilla boss, let’s discuss the advantages of wearing these hakis. The Haki V1 will increase your melee/sword M1 damage by +6 and give you the ability to hit Logia users.

However, 50,000 Haki Mastery points are required to upgrade your Haki to V2. What does V2 offer in terms of benefits? You receive +9 more melee/sword damage than the Haki V1 with it.

And ultimately, of course, in order to truly unlock Buso Haki V3, you actually need 200,000 Haki Mastery points. The advantages of possessing this are that it increases your melee/sword damage by +14 compared to Haki V2, making it currently the strongest in the game.

It takes a lot of grinding to get to the 200,000 Haki point need, but there is an easier way to farm the points for V3. To do this, make sure you have reached Level 100; if not, continuing farming in the world you are currently in until you are powerful enough to reach the island where we’re going to farm the points faster.

You must travel to Syrup Island, which is between Vaill Island’s northeast and east. Once there, you’ll see a lot of players grinding against NPCs to gain Haki Mastery points more quickly.

You may have heard that you should grind straight to Arlo Park, but doing so will only slow you down because the NPCs there are much tougher than those in Syrup Island.

However, if you want to go for it and you have pals who can fight with the NPCs in Arlo Park, feel free to do so.


I hope this was of some help. A tremendous thank you to Nikkolapz for going over each of these details and explaining them so thoroughly. For better understanding check out his video:
