Overwatch: November 2021 Tank Tier List
Now that another month has passed, it’s time to assess how well Overwatch’s tanks are doing. We made our decision based on the current state of the game as well as the individual win/pick rates of each character—as well as their most recent rebalance changes. This benchmark is subject to adjustment over the next 30 days.
Here are our recommendations for the best and worst tanks in Overwatch for November 2021.
Surprising no one, Reinhardt remains in the S-Tier this month. It’s no secret that when most players think “Overwatch tank” they think “Rein.” He’s likely to be the first tank you ever try and the last thing your character sees before a TPK.
Zarya’s bubble still strikes fear into the hearts of Overwatch players—both during Halloween season and afterward. Roadhog and D.va are unique and hard to compare to other tanks, giving them both a well-ironed niche to occupy that others can’t fill.
- Wrecking Ball
Despite being widely regarded as one of the most balanced characters in Overwatch history, Winston remains in the B Tier. He joins Sigma and Wrecking Ball as situational choices. Wrecking Ball is less of a straightforward tank and more of a well-armored annoyance. Meanwhile, Sigma, while presenting an interesting mix of diversion and crowd control, can’t quite make a case for himself over Rein.
Poor Orisa can’t seem to catch a break. To put it simply, while she is an interesting character and makes for a fun pick to shake things up every now and again, she is often outclassed by superior barrier tanks like Sigma and, in some instances, Zarya. Plus, when a barrier tank is at the top of the meta, you may be hard-pressed for a reason to pick the one at the bottom.
