The statistics for the most used Overwatch heroes for Season 4 have just been revealed. While players from different rankings may shuffle between different characters, it is always the healer who takes the top spot.
The Most Picked Heroes In Overwatch Competitive Season 4
One of the biggest decisions in any team-based game is having to pick a suitable character for the best situation. Having knowledge about the current meta will no doubt be useful during competitive matches and has an overall influence on which characters get used the most. In line with this, Omnic Meta compiled the data of the currently most used heroes for this season, which is also sorted by rank.
Keep in mind that the following data is only limited to PC and does not involve the console edition of the game. Because of their popularity, these heroes are the most "powerful" and can be used in most competitive ladder team compositions. Take note that the following list will be enumerated from their lowest to highest pick rate.
For Bronze tier, Roadhog takes tenth place followed by Ana, Zenyatta, Zarya, Junkrat, Soldier 76, Reinhardt, D.Va, Lucio and finally Mercy. Silver, on the other hand, has Zenyatta, Pharah, Roadhog, Zarya, Ana, Soldier 76, D.Va, Lucio, Reinhardt and Mercy again at the top. Following this, Gold players prefer to use Zenyatta, Roadhog, Zarya, D.Va, Soldier 76, Pharah, Ana, Lucio, Reinhardt and Mercy yet again.
Moving on, Platinum tier has Zenyatta, D.va, Zarya, Pharah, Roadhog, Soldier 76, Lucio, Ana, Reinhardt and Mercy. Meanwhile, Diamond tier includes Genji, Zenyatta, Zarya, Pharah, Soldier 76, Roadhog, Lucio, Mercy, Reinhardt and Ana who takes the top spot. Next, Master players prefer D.Va, Genji, Pharah, Soldier 76, Zarya, Roadhog, Lucio, Mercy, Reinhardt and Ana again. Finally, the Grandmaster rank has Tracer, Genji, Pharah, Soldier 76, Mercy, Lucio, Zarya, Roadhog, Reinhardt and Ana again.
The Healers Are Taking Charge
With this in mind, it is quite evident that Mercy is the top picked hero ranging from Bronze all the way to Platinum. On the other hand, Ana dethrones her from the Diamond rank up to Grandmaster. Ana is an extremely popular pick in high tiers as she actually represents 32 percent of all Grandmaster mains, as per PVP Live. Because of this, one could argue that one in 10 Grandmasters is actually an Ana main.
Healers are always a must pick during competitive matches with Mercy and Ana constantly clashing for the best solo healer role. While Mercy has gotten a buff towards her ultimate ability, Ana still has an advantage with her utility and firepower. Fans can play Overwatch on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
