Hanzo Tier Rating - C-tier

We rate Hanzo as a C-tier Damage hero in the current Overwatch 2 meta (among possible tiers of S, A, B, C, and D).

Hanzo is significantly less viable now that he can't one-shot most Damage heroes and can't one-shot any Supports. With the massive healing in the current meta and Hanzo's inherent inconsistency, you'll find that you frequently get an enemy very low with Hanzo, but you and your team don't finish them off.
