The “#Overwatch” competitive season is still alive and kicking with many players competing to try and climb their ranks. Each season introduced a new meta, and #Season 6 is no different. Blizzard had previously updated the game with a few new changes that helped improve the playability of several characters. Similarly, these new things have also shaped the #Current metas that we have right now. While nothing is actually definitive as of now, here are the current “Overwatch” metas for Season 6.

Dive comp

The popular dive composition from the previous season has somewhat made its way to Season 6. While it isn’t as popular as it was before, many players still pick heroes like Winston, Genji, Lucio, and Mercy.

For those unaware, the dive comp revolves around speedy heroes that can jump, leap, or fly over defenses and straight onto the point. More team fights broke out often with matches ending much quicker than usual. The dive comp was a surprisingly good change of pace from the slow Triple Tank meta back in Season 3. While the dive comp slowly seems to be fading, there’s no denying that it was one of the most exciting team compositions in “Overwatch” so far.

Cheese comp

Ever since the Orisa buff has gone live, she’s become a popular pick thanks to her large shields and faster fire rate. Since her barrier now covers more ground, Torbjorn mains have been setting up their defenses behind it, making it harder to kill. If enemies do manage to destroy the barrier, Orisa can just throw out another one thanks to its 8-second cooldown.

The Torbjorn x Orisa combo is becoming an unstoppable force which alludes back to the brief "barrierwatch" comp back a few seasons ago. The best way to counter the cheese comp is with speedy heroes like Genji, or characters that can pierce barriers, like Symmetra.

The Junkers

Junkrat was considered as one of the worst heroes before his recent buff, and now most players have him on their team. Similarly, Roadhog has seen a lot of plays recently after his Take a Breather buff which allows him to move around the field. Couple this with his faster firing rate and you’ve got yourself a killing machine. Both Roadhog and Junkrat don’t comprise a “meta,” but they’ve been a pretty active pair in this “Overwatch” season. With that being said, it’ll be interesting to see how these two adapt to the slowly growing metas in the game. “Overwatch” is now playable on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
