What is the current meta in Overwatch 2? Best team composition

With the way Overwatch 2 gets regular updates, the meta will keep changing. A hero can start a season as the definitive top pick in a particular role, only for another to get a small update in a hotfix or patch for them to take over. Even things as simple as giving people enough time to learn how to use that hero can propel them into the meta limelight. When heroes are at their best, you want to build around them with other characters who can thrive and successfully coexist with them. Here are the best meta team builds you can currently have in Overwatch 2.

The best meta team composition in Overwatch 2

As of Season 2, the current best picks for a standard team in Overwatch 2 are Roadhog/Orisa, Sojourn, Junkrat, Mercy, and Kiriko.

For Roadhog or Orisa in the tank slot, both are unchallenged in their survivability at the moment. While you can only have one tank, you can’t go wrong with either option. Roadhog’s Take a Breather can get him out of many sticky situations even when unsupported, and his hook one-shot combo can be deadly against most characters. Orisa’s abilities boil down to using them at the right time. Both Fortify and Javelin Spin can easily wipe out the usefulness of multiple abilities and ultimates simply by positioning them in the right spot. Also, Javelin Throw is a long range stun which is ridiculous for stopping enemy advances and abilities.

In the Damage slot, Junkrat and Sojourn are both the strongest picks. Junkrat’s damage potential is currently off the charts. Having one of his mines stockpiled for an escape ability is key to ensuring he can keep fighting, and catching someone is as good as it gets. Sojourn got a few nerfs, but she’s still an insanely powerful choice with her easy-loading railgun, even if she doesn’t hit everyone with one shot now. Pack a Mercy with her and there was essentially no nerf.

For supports, Mercy and Kiriko are by far the best picks at the moment. Mercy can team up with Sojourn and Junkrat to give them easy one-hit-kill potential, or she can pocket Orisa or Roadhog to make them even scarier. Her movement has always been one of the best as she is all about jumping from teammate to teammate. Master their gliding and flying and you can survive for a long time without being sent back to spawn. Kiriko has received a few nerfs like Sojourn, but her ability to escape fights through walls by teleporting to teammates and Suzu Protection are still insanely good. Kitsune Rush also remains one of the best ultimates in the game, and likely will remain so for the foreseeable future.
