Overwatch Headshot Hitbox Guide



Overwatch Headshot Hitbox Guide by Waltz

Introduction

In Overwatch, headshots do twice as much damage as normal shots, but not all heroes can headshot other heroes. On contact, headshots make a higher-pitched sound compared to normal shots, but it may be unintuitive as to which heroes can or cannot headshot. We have included this information, along with outlines of each hero’s headshot box, down below.

Who can headshot?

Bastion (Recon Mode)
D.Va (Mech)
D.Va (Out of Mech)
Genji
Hanzo
Lúcio
McCree
Mei
Mercy

Soldier:76
Sombra
Tracer
Torbjörn
Widowmaker
Zenyatta
