There are plenty of Brigitte counters in Overwatch 2, it’s just a matter of playing the game enough to find and use them to your advantage. However, for some it may be more difficult than for others, so Gamelevate is here to help.
This list is going to have one hero from each role (DPS, Tank, and Support) and will go into a brief description of what makes the hero such a great counter for Brigitte.
Using any of these heroes in your games will certainly help your win rate against this crowd control queen.
First up is Ashe, who is a great contender for the top 3 Brigitte counters in Overwatch 2. What makes her so ideal in this matchup is her versatility.
She can easily use her Viper to snipe Brig from a distance if her shield is down, but she can also use her alt-fire to break the shield just as easily from close range.
Then, Ashe has her Coach Gun. Brigitte is great at closing gaps and pushing weak enemies away from their team. But with Ashe, one shot from her Coach and she can easily create enough of a gap to deter Brigitte.
And who could forget about B.O.B.? With a well-placed ultimate, Ashe can not only get around Brig’s defenses, but can force her to make a tough decision.
Either save herself by running away, or sacrifice herself for her team to try and escape.
Then, with the enemy team down players, Ashe and her team can swoop in for a win.
For our tank, Ramattra is absolutely one of the top 3 Brigitte counters in Overwatch 2. With his extremely tanky nature and high damage output, he can easily outmaneuver his enemy.
When Brig tries to get close and defend her team from Ramattra, he can easily go into Nemesis form and start punching.
Since Nemesis form gets around shields, Brig won’t stand a chance. With the slight chance she managed to survive the initial attack, that isn’t the end.
Once Ramattra leaves Nemesis form, he can use his basic attack to knock down Brigitte’s health from a distance when she tries to run.
The Logitech G502 X line features a new way to game with its innovative hybrid switches for speed, precision, and lightweight.
This gives her the option of slowing down her escape by walking with her shield to the enemy, or trying to sidestep the attack while running away.
Either way, she won’t make it too far from Ramattra without paying a price.
And once Brigitte’s defenses are totally down and she is out of her abilities to protect and heal, her team is in real trouble.
With a click of his ultimate, Ramttra goes into Annihilation mode and wipes the enemy team. This easily secures a win for this goliath tank and his allies.
When it comes to supports, Zenyatta has always been one of the top 3 Brigitte counters in Overwatch 2.
What makes Zen so great here is the fact that he can use his basic fire from a distance to always be sure Brigitte has no shield, leaving her defenseless.
Or if she tries to sneak up on him from behind, a simple Snap Kick can put enough distance for him to escape.
Then, we have Zenyatta’s healing. While it may not be as strong as others, his Transcendence can save his team from being wiped out by a massive Brigitte ultimate.
That will allow him and his allies to recover, recollect, and enact revenge on their enemies.
Finally we have the famous Orb of Discord. For this, Zen doesn’t even need to do any damage to Brigitte.
By simply putting this Orb on her, he can scare her enough from the thought of taking damage to step back for it to reset.
But to get this reset, she will have to leave the line of combat, leaving her team without a support for some time. Even if she stays, she will face the onslaught of the enemy team and will be taken out with the extra Discord damage. So it really is a lose-lose for her.
The wrap up
There are plenty of other great Brigitte counters in Overwatch 2, but these 3 are some of the best.
However, with updates being made constantly, there may be a time when this list will change.
When that time comes, you can trust Gamelevate to update you with a new list for players to gain some inspiration from in their next match.
