What sets Sigma apart from the rest of the tank heroes in Overwatch 2 is his skillset to take enemy damage from a distance. You do not have to get close and personal to act as a meat shield, reducing the overall risk normally involved in team engagement.
Thanks to his gravity control, Sigma can make sure that his teammates who do jump to the front lines are well protected. He also deals decent damage despite being a tank in the game.
The following guide will tell you how to master Sigma in Overwatch 2 by explaining his counters and synergies with teammates. We will also highlight all the characters Sigma is extremely powerful against in OW2 so you can swap to him whenever those characters make trouble on the field.

Sigma is strong against
Tracking high-mobility heroes like Mercy can be difficult but Sigma can use Accretion against Resurrection to stun her out.
Moira’s Biotic Orbs is her main defense ability. You can easily cancel out the Orb with the help of Kinetic Grasp.
Your gravity effects can put a stop to Lucio who is easily one of the most mobile heroes in the game.
Sigma is weak against (Sigma matchups)
Sigma is extremely weak in melee range, which means that a hero like Doomfist can make quick work of him if he gets close enough.
Much like Doomfist, Genji is another hero who is a great counter to Sigma. He can easily dash in while deflecting Sigma’s projectiles to do loads of damage.
Sigma relies on his abilities to survive and protect his teammates. Sombra can use her hacking abilities to make a mess of things as well as use her Translocator and Invisibility abilities to become a hard target.
Sigma can use Symmetra’s teleporter to imzprove his low mobility. In addition, Symmetra is another hero with a shield ability. Sigma can save his Experimental Barrier while Symmetra’s shield is in place to elongate the shield protection of their teammates.
Best Sigma crosshair settings
A wider crosshair is best for heroes such as Sigma who utilizes weapons that deal spread damage over an area.
Crosshair of type circle and color Blue is best for Sigma. The dot size must be 6. These settings are ideal for targeting an area or a group of enemies, rather than a single one.
