Mei can also lift you up in places with an Ice Wall where Reinhardt cannot reach thus making Charge useless in those situations. The math is super simple: If Bastion can see you, Bastion can kill you. Which is fast and deal area damage. The additional ammo and reduced spread in Recon mode is nice on paper but what you're essentially creating is a less mobile and bigger hitbox soldier 76 that deals less damage. I want to stress again how important it is to be careful around a Genji, as his Deflect ability can easily decimate a Bastion Sentry in a fraction of a second. Pharah: Pharah does have great map mobility, but her air flying mobility makes her such an easy target to shoot out of the air for Bastion. In Tank mode however it's getting even harder.
Another tactic Ana can do against Tank Form is to throw a Biotic Grenade at you to ensure you will not receive healing during your ultimate, increasing the chance of your death. If you see a photon orb flying your direction you do have the option to lift up and relocate elsewhere constantly or keep healing, but this can keep you out of the fight often. So not being able to support most of the heroes that Bastion will actually have troubles with makes her a bit weaker overall against Bastion. Every match is an intense multiplayer showdown pitting a diverse cast of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities against each other in an epic, globe-spanning conflict. As Bastion just make sure you keep a good distance and try to stick with your team so they have your back against any offensive heroes, especially Tracer. Discord Orb is deadly against Bastion. You get into a competitive match on Dorado and you are on attack.
Because of this, it's a good tactic to Reconfigure out of sentry mode when you get low on ammo to accomplish two things: moving somewhere else to plant a Sentry while also reloading your weapon. This is the worst thing Zarya can do to you. Having backup from your allies really comes in handy against this combo that D. The only silver lining was the ability to heal while taking damage or while being mobile but all of that is outdone by what is essentially a nerf to his turret mode. While in Sentry Form you can melt Zarya's barriers both personal and projected in about a half a second, normally they will last for 2 seconds before the cooldown is up for it.
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. The usual way for D. Tracer excels in this area very well, she can Blink around very fast to get around Bastion to flank him. Range: 4 meters Self Damage: up to 40 self damage. Mei: Mei's Ice Wall acts as a powerful shield against a Bastion's Gatlin gun, enabling her team to push forward more easily. It can then be possible for D.
Bastion does in fact actually have a critical hit point headshot while he is in turret mode. You should be able to take out a level 3 turret as long as you have enough health and do not get targeted too much by it. Charge really only works if it's a relatively shorter distance. Be careful using your Tank Form ultimate around a Genji, because he can use Deflect on one of your cannon balls to fire it right back at you to possibly kill you in one hit. Self-Repair allows Bastion to never worry about reaching health packs since his mobility is not so great anyways to get to them quick enough.
If the majority of the enemy has spotted you and you are taking damage, then that is the point in which you should consider Reconfigure to Recon to reposition elsewhere. As Bastion it can be difficult to do damage to enemies at longer ranges. You will need to respond quickly to this and fire at him or consider uplifting and relocate elsewhere. And since tanks are inherently large-bodied heroes, a wider spread for Bastion won't really protect them. Can you headshot a Bastion in Sentry or Tank configuration? Taken together, the reduced spread and increased magazine size promise to up Bastion's survivability in Recon Mode.
Widowmaker's ultimate Infra-Sight can be slightly effective against Bastions as it will reveal your camping spot to her whole team, making you more vulnerable overall. It's important to not stay in Sentry mode in the same place for too long. While in Tank Form, Bastion will be a prime target to his enemies. You will need to turn around and start firing at him. Although I think Widowmaker is usually better off keeping a distance from you and sniping from afar.
While playing Bastion I have noticed random Pharahs attacking me from behind occasionally, so this can happen sometimes, but not as often as seeing Reapers, Tracers, or Genjis first. If you find yourself getting attacked from her at long range, consider relocating to a spot that Pharah can't reach you from long distances. Because they are outweighed by what is essentially a huge nerf. This is the marquee change, the one that promises to shake up the way you play when you're Bastion. The doors open and you lay your eyes upon one of the most unbeatable strategies at lower ranks.
If you despise Bastion, the key change here is the Sentry Mode tweak. When Pharah uses her ultimate Barrage, quickly locate her and then shoot her down before she can fire too many rockets out. At this point Genji can then turn on his ultimate Dragonblade to finish you off along with any others in the area. You will need to do pulse shots rapidly tapping the fire button to increase your accuracy from longer ranges against Widowmaker and her small hitbox. Because of the extreme vulnerabilities from the rear, it's generally a good idea to plant yourself in Sentry Mode up against a wall or corner so that it will be harder for enemies to flank you from behind.
This usually only works if Winston catches you by surprise, because Bastion can still tear through Winston faster than he can to you. The grenades from Junkrat's Frag Launcher can travel decent distances and bounce around walls or corners eventually ricocheting to a Bastion Sentry while Junkrat can fire them usually out of Bastion's line of sight. His headshot area changes to the behind instead of the front. The problem with niche heroes is that if they are countered or played outside of their niche area, these characters begin to seem a lot more useless which is something that often occurs at the higher ranks. As she is harassing you, keep relocating to different spots so she will have a hard time tracking you down.
