Overwatch Guide: Symmetra Info and Tips

Symmetra is one of the best supports in Overwatch. Here's how to dominate with this classy chica.

My second favorite Overwatch character has to be Symmetra. Even though she's classified as a Support character, her turrets do some serious damage. In fact, I got multiple Plays of the Game with her without really trying.

Symmetra brings a mixed bag to the table. She's basically a Defensive Support, whereas I see other characters like Lucio and Mercy as Offense Supports. I say this mainly because of her turrets, although they can be used offensively as well. 

Her weapon, the Photon Projector, can be used two different ways. The first is meant for long-range fights. It creates an orb of energy, and holding the fire button (L2 on PS4) causes the orb to grow in size and damage. Release the button to fire and deal a big chunk of damage to a baddie.

The second (R2) is for much closer combat. It essentially releases a stream of energy towards your enemy to whittle down their health consistently. It does decent damage, but not as much as I'd expect for such a short range. 

Even though Support characters aren't really known for dealing damage, Symmetra can hold her own. But there are a few things to keep in mind to get the most out of her to take your team to victory. 

There you have it! Using these Overwatch Symmetra tips and techniques, I was able to get multiple Plays of the Game and almost always ended up on the leaderboard after the game.
