She’s top three among all DPS heroes when it comes to win rate, along with a respectable pick rate closing in on 2.5%. With a nice quality-of-life change to BoB, Ashe is seeing a lot more action every day.
Reaper has dropped out of the top five for win rates, sitting in 6th now, but still remains a dangerous character to use in the right hands. He has a solid 2% pick rate and a respectable KDA.
Genji is now the second-most-picked DPS hero in Overwatch 2 with a 4.66% pick rate, but he can’t make it back to S tier because his win rate is still lacking (48.60%).
Soldier is also a commonly-picked DPS hero (3.61%), but he is also suffering from a lower win rate (48.10%). He is helped by having a passable 3.10 KDA.
Pharah’s pick rate has remained somewhat stable but fallen in Season 4 to 1.91%. Even though her win rate has dipped a bit to around 48.33% she’s still top six among DPS heroes in KDA.
Symmetra has the highest win rate and third-highest KDA among all DPS heroes. She doesn’t make the S or A tiers, though, because she’s rarely picked (only a 1.42% pick rate).
Ditto for Torbjorn, whose 53.16% win rate and 3.30 KDA are balanced out by a 1.36% pick rate, which makes him one of the least-used Heroes.
Mei is a bit disadvantaged by not having the greatest win rate (currently just above 49%), but she does have the second-highest KDA for DPS supports – despite her low pick rate.
Even though he is still one of the most-picked DPS heroes Cassidy still has one of the lowest win rates (46.78%) in the DPS role and the worst KDA of all DPS heroes at just 2.58.

Widowmaker is still a highly-picked hero, but her win rate doesn’t even sniff 46%, and her KDA is bottom four in the role as well.
Another greatly picked Hero pick rate, Hanzo ends up down in B tier because of his awful 47% win rate which brings him down a notch or two.
Even though Echo has the third-best win rate, that comes paired with the lowest pick rate (less than 1%) for a DPS hero and a poor (2.92) KDA.
Sojourn has languished at the bottom of the rankings for DPS for a while, and not much has changed in Season 4. With one of the worst win rates at just 46%, a pick rate over 1.29%, and a 3.15 KDA, she has to be a C for the time being.
Junkrat continues to plummet in terms of his viability, with his win rate down below 47.35% and the fifth-worst KDA.
Tracer’s popularity has seen a nice boost in Season 4 (2.51%). Unfortunately, it hasn’t saved her languishing win rate or KDA to have only her more dedicated mains playing her.
Bastion is still in a rough spot, but he at least has a KDA 3.15 and a win rate sniffing 48.04% to keep him out of the basement for DPS heroes.
No matter what Overwatch seems to do, they just can’t seem to figure out how to make Sombra a viable option. She remains the lowest win-rate DPS hero (43.78) despite never being picked.
