While she’s listed as a support, it’s important to know that Overwatch‘s Symmetra really isn’t a replacement for Mercy or Lucio.

Overwatch: Winston Abilities And Strategy Tips

Unlike Reinhardt, Overwatch‘s Winston is a tank that excels at rushing forward ahead of his team and slapping the enemy around to clear the way. He’s aggressive on the battlefield and is best used by players who are able to handle being outnumbered while prioritizing targets on the fly.
