These are the Overwatch 2 heroes at the top of the Battle for Olympus leaderboard
The leaderboard has been updated for Overwatch 2’s Battle for Olympus. Here are the heroes at the top of the charts.
Unlike previous limited time game modes, Battle for Olympus has a leaderboard that's keeping track of eliminations in this chaotic and powerful deathmatch mode. And now, Overwatch 2 has some official updates on the leaderboard after the first week.
The first week of Battle for Olympus wrapped up on January 13, 2023. Gamers had spent those seven days duking it out on a small handful of maps using seven heroes with upgraded abilities inspired by Greek gods. While the gorgeous yet controversial skins have been getting most of the attention, the official Overwatch account has shined some light on the leaderboard after a week of chaos.
Which hero is best in Battle for Olympus? Leaderboard reveals all
With only seven heroes available in the limited time mode — all with their own powerful upgrades — players quickly noticed that some were stronger in this deathmatch scenario than others. And it looks like those predictions have been accurate so far based on Overwatch 2's Battle for Olympus leaderboard.
At the end of the first week of the event, Overwatch shared the leaderboard, sorted by the amount of kills each hero has collected. According to a previous tweet, the kills are only counting final blows, not all eliminations.
According to the leaderboard, Junker Queen has the most overall kills. Players across the world have accumulated over 34.46 million kills while playing as the relatively new tank. This was followed by Pharah, the aerial DPS, who had over 32.57 million kills.
After that, kills dropped down significantly. Roadhog was in third with 25.88 million kills and then support specialist Lucio showed up with 24.94 million kills thanks to his incredible speed and upgraded booping capabilities.
Battle for Olympus will be available to play in Overwatch 2 until Thursday, January 19, 2023. That means there are three days left to try and get your hero of choice some more kills to add to the leaderboard.
Unfortunately for Ramattra, however, three days won't be enough to get the hero to the top. The new hero is only at 19.69 million kills.
Get ready to see a Battle for Olympus leaderboard update in a matter of days.
