What is MIT in Overwatch 2?

In Overwatch 2, MIT means Damage Mitigated, which simply put means the amount of enemy damage you’ve avoided using your abilities. While MIT in OW2 includes damage blocked, it’s not limited to it, as abilities like Nano Boost (Ana) and Fortify (Orisa) also buff damage resistance.

However, with most Tanks having a shield or damage reduction abilities, you’ll always see them topping the scoreboard when it comes to MIT.

For instance, if a Zarya uses her shields to protect herself and her teammates, and a Reinhardt uses his shield to block incoming attacks, it will increase your damage mitigated.

So, using your shield or defensive abilities at the right time can help you better mitigate the damage. For example, if you’re playing D.Va, and you have a Pharah or Soldier opponent, you can nullify both of these DPS’ ultimates by loosely tracking their ultimates and using your Defense Matrix at the right moment.
