List Rules Vote up the all-around most formidable playable characters in Overwatch.

Overwatch is the award-winning, action-packed, team-based first-person shooter from Blizzard Entertainment, the creators of Warcraft, from 2016. For the uninitiated, Overwatch breaks players up into two teams of six, where they select from a roster of 23 unique playable characters, which are divided into four classes: Offense, Defense, Tank and Support. Teams work together to conquer control points king-of-the-hill style, capture the flag, or escort a payload across the map before the clock runs out.

You might be thinking; "Wait, isn't that basically just Team Fortress 2?" Largely, yes, but it's f*cking awesome.

With over 25 million users, Overwatch is one of the fastest growing competitive shooters on console and PC, and quite possibly home to the weirdest fan-base of all time. For some reason, the internet loves to imagine D.Va as a little kid obsessed with Dorito's, and Soldier:76 as her Clint Eastwood-esque Dad. It's safe to say there's a little bias that goes into picking your main character.

Is it solely based on the numbers, and how effective they are in battle? Or is it their relative usefulness in clinching a point, or making that Play Of The Game happen? Maybe your decision is based on the rich lore, and deep back stories for every character?

Here are the absolute best Overwatch characters.
