The hero – Zarya, is one of the few tanks in Overwatch game. Beside being a tank, you can only use her as an off tank. A decent team should consist of one main tank and one off tank to be called competitive. If you have a team with two off tanks, your team will clearly be at a disadvantage and will usually be outplayed.
Zarya’s Responsibilities and Positioning
When you play Zarya, your responsibility as an off tank is to:
- contest the objective with your main tank,
- stay alive,
- try to protect your supports from dying,
- and deal as much damage as you can to the enemy.
