Overwatch 2 – Tracer Hero Guide

Tracer in Overwatch 2 remains one of the most versatile DPS characters and a change from your usual strikers. While Tracer can still wrack up the damage counters, her biggest utility is in flanking, confusing, and distracting the enemy. Just make sure to watch her back. Tracer won’t last long in a direct fight.Here’s all you need to know if you’re planning on making this front-and-center hero your main.

Tracer overview

Tracer is a DPS hero who prioritizes speed over fancy weaponry. Her pulse pistols are the only damage-dealing ability she has, outside her ultimate, which means she can take a bit of getting used to if you’re expecting something like a fast Soldier 76. However, Tracer’s speediness is even more useful in Overwatch 2 than it ever was, as flanking and quick maneuvers take on more important roles and digging in with your tank is a thing of the past.

Tracer abilities

  • Pulse Pistols: Unleashes rapid-fire blasts from two pistols
  • Blink: Tracer teleports horizontally in the indicated direction. Can be used three times consecutively
  • Recall: Returns Tracer to a few seconds earlier in time
  • Pulse Bomb: Tracer throws a bomb that attaches to a character or surface and explodes after a few seconds
