Blizzard World

Best 1vs.1 Map.

Location Irvine, California, United States

Why did I Choose Blizzard World?

It is a unique map with a touch of Blizzard work for those who love the community with all the essential aspects of a great combat experience.

Why care about Disney World when you have Blizzard World, a map designed for Blizzard Entertainment to show off their studio capabilities while allowing players to move their payloads around the fantastic world of Blizzard?

The map offers exciting high-ground options while good covers for teams defending the points. Securing the payload is easy as long as you see Pharah in the air, as it’s an open-air Map, so flying around is easy and can provide exponential benefits to specific playstyles.

  • Best beginner map.
  • Easy to carry payload. 

  • Not much easter eggs or references to main story.


Best Parkour Map in Overwatch 2.
Location Greece
TerrainCity area

Why did I Choose Ilios?

Ilios is recommended for its parkour capabilities and attention to detail, which are highly interactive. 

A land very dear to Lucio and its main, Ilios, offers to capture the point game modes. If you are a Lucio main, you will have a lot of playgrounds to roam around on the walls while assisting your teammates and Booping off enemies into the well of death when they least expect you.

The map is designed to take advantage of your surroundings and use it against your enemies; this map forces you to move around; otherwise, there is a massive chance you will fall out of it.

  • Parkour Capabilities.
  • Exciting Terrain.

  • Not beginner-friendly.
  • Requires a lot of practice.

Route 66

Best map for Ashe in Overwatch 2.

Why did I Choose Route 66?

I recommend the map for its unique terrains and hidden spots to tackle your enemies by surprise. 

The roads where Ashe and McCree, aka Cassidy, fell in love are now allowing you to experience it as well.

This west-style map is excellent for all looking for an authentic American standoff; you can use high grounds to ambush your foes or use the cave and other entrances to escape worst-case scenarios and get back to your team.

  • Unique Terrains. 
  • Caves and Entrances add an element of surprise.

  • Limited to Ashe character.


Best D.VA map. 
Location South Korea
TerrainCity area

Why did I Choose this?

Busan is ideal for its futuristic look and greatly compliments the cyberpunk characters that are all about dealing maximum damage. 

D.va’s homeland and a cyberpunk-style city that never sleeps. Busan offers some heroes a futuristic look and opportunities to showcase their vocals at the karaoke stand.

Busan offers 3 different areas where you can secure points for a specific time to get your team to victory. It’s a great map with high-ground options, especially if you are playing Soldier 76, WidowMaker, Ana, Cassidy, or Ashe, so you can output most damage while helping your team.

  • Best for D.VA character.
  • Pleasing setting.
  • Easy to discover opponents.

  • Map design demands practice.


Beautifull Looking Map in Overwatch 2.
Location Portugal

Why did I Choose ESPERANÇA?

While being added later to the game, it is one of the most beloved among the community to offer long-range combat and the best competitive advantage to both sides. 

The latest addition to Overwatch 2 Map Roaster, the beautiful city of ESPERANÇA, comes with the latest game mode, PUSH, where you have to push the Robot to a certain distance and point to win the match.


Unlike moving the payload, which is a slow process, the robot can move at a much faster pace, and if enemies get access to him, he will be back to the starting point even faster, so it’s better not to leave him alone.

The map sometimes feels spacious for 5v5 combats and makes us miss the old 6v6 fights, but maybe it’s just my experience. Nevertheless, I’m happy to have such artwork added to the game and am very excited about what more Overwatch 2 will bring for us all.

  • Best 5vs.5 map design.
  • Bright and Vibrant.

  • A fast-paced map might not suit beginners.

What Would I Recommend?

Ilios seems more of an all-rounder to me as it requires practice and is easy to learn with a team. Moreover, I also recommend going with Blizzard World for a 1vs.1 match. 

Maps are a crucial element of the game; if you are not aware of them and their surroundings, there is a massive chance that you will struggle to support your teammates. I tried my best to cover some of the most common maps you will encounter in the game.

My goal is to help you get started early so you can build your map knowledge and help your team in the best possible manner. If my guides help you improve at games and provide new information, kindly share it with your loved ones.
