Ultimate: Death Blossom is your bread and butter. This ultimate does 600 damage, has a duration of 6 seconds and hits multiple targets. This makes it one of the highest damage AOEs in the game. Spamming your Jump while ulting on a flat surface makes you even harder to kill, since you are not invulnerable while casting it and you can be interrupted by things such as McCree’s Stun or Reinhardt’s pin. This ultimate pairs great with Zarya’s ultimate and Mei’s ultimate. If you’re sloppy while using Death Blossom you will be punished greatly and quickly focused – always remember to analyze your environment before you use it!
Playing With a Reaper
Zenyatta: These two synergize well. If Zenyatta gives you an Orb of Harmony, you will be a much more difficult target to kill and allow you to feel safer while casting Death Blossom on the back line. If you’re in a team fight and both you both use your ultimates, you’re an unstoppable machine.
Mercy: It is not often you will have a Mercy on you, but if you have the chance to be powered up by a Mercy you will cause havoc. Your shotguns and Death Blossom will +30% more damage and lets be honest, who doesn’t want to do more damage? This can be ideal versus tanks like D.Va and Roadhog who do not have shields.
Playing Against a Reaper
Hanzo/Widowmaker: These two champions will dominate you due to distance and massive damage to non-tank targets. If you’re against these two try to stay away from open environments and flank them as much as possible. Your Shadow Step also gives you the ability to flank snipers quickly.
Road Hog: Road Hog is a strong tank to go against Reaper. If you are playing against a Road Hog avoid his hook and his ultimate, both of these will zone you out.
McCree: When you’re matched up against McCree it will be an even fight until you attempt use Death Blossom against him, his flash bang will interrupt your ultimate.
