Overwatch 2: Bastion Guide (Tips And Tricks)


Overwatch 2 has now released worldwide, and Blizzard's latest entry into the series has improved in all aspects compared to it's original release.

Competitive, is all about choosing the right heroes to find the perfect fit for your playstyle, and one of the heroes you should check out is Bastion.

Here's the ultimate guide to playing Bastion in Overwatch 2!

Overwatch 2: Bastion Guide (Tips And Tricks)

General Tips and Tricks

Bastion is one of the heroes that recieved the biggest reworks ahead of OW2s release, as the damage character was on the downfail towards the end of OW1, mainly due to this lackluster kit as a whole.

Now, Bastion is perhaps the most overpowered hero within the game, and deals incredible damage to any characters you're facing in a match.

The unique combination that players will be able to use with Bastion's Tank transformation, along with it's grenade is stellar, and staying behind a shield and getting damage boosted by a mercy is the way to go!


In terms of other heroes, we'd have to go with the following to counter Bastion.

  • Junkrat
  • Hanzo
  • Reaper
  • Genji
  • Widowmaker
  • Pharah
  • Tracer

Heroes Bastion Counters

  • Winston
  • Orisa
  • Reinhardt
  • Mercy
  • Soldier 76
  • Junkerqueen
  • Sigma

Keyboard and Mouse settings

Bastion is perhaps one of the easier characters to use straight away in OW2, but this isn't to say there aren't some additonal keybinds and mouse settings you're going to want to use.

Raising your mouse sens is going to prove key when in Tank form, as you'll be able to lock onto enemy heads when they're moving around the Payload/Objective.

As for keybinds, ensure you have quick access to your abilities, such as Mouse Button 4 or Q, and there's no better hardware to use then our Roccat TKL Pro or our Roccat Burst Pro Air.
