Easiest "Noob Friendly" Heroes For New Players

Leave a Comment
Hey everyone! Still working on the Overwatch tier list, but in the meantime I just wanted to put together a quick guide on some of the easier heroes to use in the game.

At competitive level play, Overwatch tends to revolve around high skill, high reward heroes like McCree and Widowmaker, who require pinpoint accuracy and quick reflexes. 

Meanwhile, while your advanced friends are scoring multi-kills, newer players may find themselves low on the kill count board at single digits the majority of games and getting made fun of by their friends and allies.

Let's try and put a stop to that.

Introduction

Hey everyone! Still working on the Overwatch tier list, but in the meantime I just wanted to put together a quick guide on some of the easier heroes to use in the game.

At competitive level play, Overwatch tends to revolve around high skill, high reward heroes like McCree and Widowmaker, who require pinpoint accuracy and quick reflexes. 

Meanwhile, while your advanced friends are scoring multi-kills, newer players may find themselves low on the kill count board at single digits the majority of games and getting made fun of by their friends and allies.

Let's try and put a stop to that.

Lucio

I'm a huge proponent of Lucio, and for good reason too. Playing Lucio almost guarantees you a gold medal in at least the healing category, and possibly also in a few other categories as well.

His passive heal and passive speed boost means that you can have a high impact on the game just by following your teammates around, and his delayed gun fire means that you stay out of enemy line of sight while your bullets are traveling. 

All in all, Lucio is an extremely effective hero and will carry you far into the upper divisions once competitive play is released.


Torbjörn

Torbjorn is one of those heroes that I probably placed a bit too low on the first tier list (soon to be updated). Although he is easily taken care of via long range Pharah rockets or Widowmaker snipes, a well placed turret in the corner can easily turn into multi-kills on control maps.

Additionally, his turret works extremely well against enemies sneaking up on you from behind, as it targets them instantly even if your own reflexes are not fast enough. 

Overall, he's likely the MOST newbie friendly defensive hero out there.

Bastion

Close behind Torbjorn is Bastion, a hero that literally out-trades every hero in his effective range, but does require more aiming that Torb. Bastion also has a built-in self heal though, which allows him a bit more flexibility when it comes to taking long range poke shots.

Overall, Bastion is very close behind Torb, but has a little more problem with enemies sneaking up from behind.

Soldier 76

In terms of heroes that need true aiming skills, Soldier 76 is really the only one I would consider "noob-friendly". He has a massive clip on his near automatic firing gun, and the only true "sprint" skill in the game. 

With his self-heal, he easily nets the silver medal in healing right behind any true healers you have on the team. If you're looking for a powerful offensive hero and do not want to rely on hitting consistent headshots with McCree, look no further than Soldier 76.

Tank Heroes In General

Other than the heroes above, most tank heroes also have a fairly low skill ceiling, and can be used effectively without a ton of practice. However, as their overall role is more important in the game, the heroes above are much easier to consistently win with.
