Bastion is strong against


You can easily kill Winston due to his large Hitbox. He also has a shield called Barrier Pack that will also not hold against the attacks. The strongest attack of Winston will not deliver damage to you when you are in Assault Configuration.

Wrecking Ball

The low damage ability of Quad Cannons of the Wrecking Ball makes him an easy target for you. You must have to act fast when attacking as the high health of the Wrecking Ball will take a while. If not then he will heal and you have to start again.


Bastion is weak against (Bastion matchups)


Biotic grenade and Sleep Dart of Ana will reduce your movement to a minimum. It will also make you an easy target by transforming you into the Recon Configuration.


She can easily shoot from behind the corners from distance. Once you are in sight of Widowmaker, you will never escape because of the low mobility.


The tracer can only be hit on the small target area called the hitbox. This combined with extreme mobility makes it extremely difficult to target. Your most powerful assault configuration will not protect you from his attacks.

Bastion synergies


Baptiste can easily protect you from incoming attacks with the help of Immortality Field. You can then focus more on the offensive side of the battle. The only thing that you need to take care of is the device that powers the Immortality Field.


With the help of the healing ability of Mercy, you can attack from the front line. You can also benefit from the damage boost of the Mercy. Using both abilities, you both can easily kill enemies.


The Orb of Discord ability of the Zenyatta can make threats to enemies. You can then kill enemies that are hit with Orb of Discord. The sudden burst damage can be prevented with the Transcendence of Zenyatta.
