Symmetra 💚 [Support]
The secondary fire of Symmetra's Photon Projector moves and deals damage through shields.
The Photon Shield can allow weak allies - for example Tracer or Zenyatta - to gain a significant health boost.
Symmetra's sentry guns can shut down flanking routes as they effectively keep out weak enemies like Tracer.
Symmetra's photon barrier can block enemy ults such as D. Va's, Reinhardt's, Tracer's, and Doomfist's if you time it correctly.
Zarya's graviton surge won't hit through Symmetra's photon barrier. The surge projectile will stop where it hit the barrier
Her Teleporter is helpful when pushing an objective.
Symmetra is relatively useless on the offense as her turrets and the teleporter are difficult to use then in an effective fashion.
While Symmetra can set up six turrets, she can have a maximum of three charges for doing so. It thus takes time for her to gain maximum defense capacity.
Although Symmetra's Photon Shield is a welcome boost to teammate's health, it is a boring ability gameplay-wise.
As Symmetra has no ability to heal her teammates, she provides little obvious benefits as a supporter.
"Symmetra feels a bit boring to play currently."
It's impossible to support certain heroes that are able to jump/fly/teleport out of range.
Symetra's sentry turrets have only a single hitpoint and easily get destroyed even when they are not targeted, for example by splash damage or Winston's Tesla Cannon.
