How to use Ramattra in Overwatch 2

Ramattra is a Tank Hero in Overwatch 2, so if you’re playing him, you need to be the anchor of the team. Tanks in Overwatch 2 are very much the hub of a squad, players will need to play the objective but also be aggressive and control the pace of their team.

As Ramattra, you’re going to want to put pressure on enemies from range with his primary fire in Omnic form, while also doing some defensive work by throwing out his barrier shield with the secondary fire.

If you feel there’s a time to get even more aggressive, throw out his Ravenous Vortex and turn into Nemesis form and start pummeling away. The primary fire in Nemesis Form plus the Ravenous Vortex AOE damage will do some serious DPS.

Finally, Ramattra’s Ultimate is like a massive version of the Ravenous Vortex, which lasts longer the more damage you do. So, with that said, you’re going to want to use this when there are a bunch of enemies around, dealing constant damage to them, increasing its duration.
