    McCree by a long shot.  Flash bang, fan the hammer, roll, fan the hammer... it will take out the healthiest of tanks.  He's the games best ambusher, not even Mei ambushes people as quickly.  Not to mention his single shots have great range and fantastic damage even if his pistol isn't a hit scan weapon.

    Want to put a stop to that Tracer who keeps harassing the back lines?  Flash Bang, Fan the Hammer. The rest of your team keeping them busy?  Good heavens, would you look at the time?  It's High Noon!

    However, if you can't aim, then you need not fill out the McCree Application.  He's useless if you aren't used to making every shot count.

    I like Pharah. Reminds me good old Doom/Quake rocket launcher, and as I got older my aiming isn't that good anymore, so it's a nice offense char for me.

    It was close for me between reaper and tracer. but i think a lot of people underestimate reapers teleport ability.   I get behind so many people with a strategic teleport. and the amount of damage you can do to unsuspecting snipers and bastions when you get behind them is insane

    I find it harder to land shots with Pharah than McCree.  Long travel times are something that my brain doesn't compute very well.  I can compute travel arcs really well, but not time to target vs their relative movement.

    I'm terrible with her.  Rockets always land where they were instead of where they are, then when I start leading the target, they stop and run the other way.

    ive been getting a lot better with pharah,  The more i fire from higher up the better my accuracy with the rockets. Stay near buildings that you can fly high and shoot at the corners of the building instead of the actual enemies,   and aim at their feet instead of them, to get at least explosion damage on them

    Reaper is one of the several counters to Bastion when played well.

    What was thought to be most boring choice : Soldier 76

    This is pure 1:1 copy of BFBC 2 medic.

    Its only aggressive offense character in the game. All rest are just flankers.

    Its the character that can push frontline and survive. Its also only character that does not have counter.

    And to make it even more powerful, he can support others as well as quite powerful healer.

    Only downside is bit lower damage.



    In fact there are only two self reliant aggressive attackers in game Soldier and Bastion.

    When you realize Bastion can heal almost constantly , and has pretty good damage in mobile mode, its nuts.

    I'm still mystified why Bastion is considered defense but that's not my call to make. :dizzy: 

    I am utterly down with Pharah.  She is able to get away in a tight spot, can hit multiple enemies with rocket fire and she really embodies JUSTICE RAINS FROM ABOVE!



    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Reaper is like a mix between that Scream horror movie dude and Darth Vader armed with deadly shotguns instead of light sabers! With this char, I occasionally get play of the game, not to mention he looks so damn cool :D

    I don't.

    It doesnt mean I can't have favorite characters right?


    Quite honest for you to not vote though.

    I really only played Genji and Lucio. Genji was my fav. Fast range attack and effective up close DPS  plus the ability to deflect is something I got pretty good at. Great fun

    Love killing Bastion with his own bullets on Genji.
    Well, I just love killing Bastion anyway. Gives me a nerdgasm ;)

    Didn't find an offensive char that I really liked on any runaway level. Only reason I might pick anyone would be Soldier 76 because of the origins skin and wanted poster.

    They're all really cool and unique, but playing Tracer is a truly unique gaming experience.  And her characterization is awesome.

    Here's me after playing Tracer for 3 hours straight:

    I usually really suck at FPS, my kids sit and tell me how blind I am.. my sensitivity is always to low for them.. lol.. I am that person spinning in circles, looking at the ground, but trying to shoot you.. LOL... but on this game, as Reaper, I OWN! I had s o much fun playing this character.

    I think I'm going to change my vote to Genji.  I'm not a great genji, but he's so fun to play and feels super unique.  I love how much of a rush his ult is.

    He's such a wild card in matches, and can tilt people (including me) just by being evasive.
