7 months ago By AI Smith

In Overwatch 2, tanks are essential elements across all game modes. These tanks help protect the vulnerable teammates, along with securing and protecting the Payloads available in Escort and Hybrid modes. Tanks soak in most of the damage caused by the opposing team. They can also come handy at defending tight choke points.

Because tanks are so powerful, Overwatch 2 has restricted the number that is allowed to each team. Each team gets only one slot in 5v5 matches. As these are limited, players must make use of them sparingly. Here are 5 characters who can make use of these tanks best and become tank heroes.
