Overwatch Lucio

Want to be genuinely useful to your team in Overwatch? Pick Lucio, because according number-crunching and stat-tracking site Master Overwatch, he’s arguably the best hero in the game. Not just on PC, but across all platforms.

While the international celebrity DJ isn’t number one for any of the key stats, he’s in the top three for some of the most important ones, including winrate (57.8%), popularity (2nd) and score per minute (259.4). The support hero might be in the middling areas for his kill-to-death ratio, but if you’re looking for a solid game-changer, the numbers point to Lucio.

While Master Overwatch isn’t a complete database, it does track player-stats for every player in the games who has ever been searched for. So, while the total player numbers for Overwatch are over seven million, Master Overwatch’s numbers are likely based on a figure considerably smaller than that.

Regardless, the numbers are still interesting to pore over and reveal some great facts about Overwatch’s numerous characters. For example, despite Symmetra being the least popular hero across all platforms, her winrate is second to none.

I always take Lucio as a 1st preference, and noticed that my win rate was higher with that character than any other, nice to see that the overall stats back that up.

Symmetra is my second choice, mainly when the map suits that kind of defensive support. Interestingly my win rate with her is even higher. Perhaps that's what's reflected in these stats: when Symmetra works she works well.

Lucio can be useful even by someone who has no clue in gaming. You are 'helping' by simply standing next to someone.

A team without Lucio is the losing team.

No surprise. He has an easy entry level but still a high skill ceiling potential. He's kind of the 'perfect' character in a game like this. At simplest level all you need to do is swap his aura and occasionally hit E and you're useful.. Go beyond that.. realize his Knockback is one of the most useful skills in the game. His DPS is not terrible for someone who PASSIVELY heals, and he can wall dance on points to delay caps / force over time nearly as good as a Genji. And you have an incredibly potent hero with tons of room to grow your skill.
