Support characters in Overwatch 2 are the lifeblood of your team. If they can keep their teammates alive, you are set up much better to come away with a victory. Now that each Support can heal themselves over time, their survivability just became much easier, and their elimination is much more important for teams to focus on. Here is a tier list of all the current Overwatch 2 Support heroes and where we think they should go.

Lucio’s speed boost and healing area effects will be hard to beat in any team composition. With fewer people on the field, it is easier to help all your teammates, and with the healing passive, he can be very difficult to bring down as he wall rides around. He’s not a must-pick, but he can be important to any team especially with his Sound Barrier.
Kiriko has one of the best Ultimates in the game with how much it speeds up your team’s attacks and reloads, making them pretty lethal in about any situation. Outside of the Ultimate, she has great movement and can teleport to teammates through walls, giving her great escape potential when she is overwhelmed and one of the fastest ways to reach allies in danger. If you can time her Protection Suzu ability properly, she can also completely negate damage incoming on teammates from massive attacks like D.Va and Junkrat’s Ultimates.
Mercy’s movement ability is ridiculous right now, making her one of the hardest Supports to take down if she has lanes to escape to. Because of this, she can constantly jump around and pocket her teammates and bring back fallen ones.

Zenyatta is still unequivocally the easiest Support to take down, which will likely always be the case, but his orbs allowing for long-range healing and extra damage on key opponents is always a massive boon for anyone who is able to stay in the fight. With Roadhog and Orisa being strong right now, he is a great choice for limiting those Tanks.
