Torbjorn Hero Counter Notes:

  • Pharah: Can be weak versus a Torbjorn is she is inexperienced however a good pharah player will make short work of your turret with a couple of rockets. For the most part, pharah is considered one fo the best torbjorn counters; it can go both ways in some cases.


  • Junkrat: Spamming frags is an easy way to deal with a torbjorn turret and no player not even torbjorn himself would want to stand next to the turret. junkrat is one of the best torbjorn counters in overwatch if played correctly.
