This Overwatch guide takes a look at which heroes can jump the gap on the side of the Hanamura map. Turns out, all characters can!
0:32 Overwatch Offense Characters
Genji - Genji can probably make the jumps with his double jump alone by using the positing shown later in the video, but by just double jumping and swift striking, you're good.
McCree - We'll use combat roll for our mobility boost. You can't cast McCree's roll in the air, but you do keep the speed boost if you roll off something. To get to point B, the difficult jump, roll between the two windows, and then aim at the middle column next to Hanamura's capture point. Then roll off the edge. Practice this in a custom map or a skrimage before you do it in a real game. As you see in the blooper reel. It might take a little getting used to.
Pharah - If you want to jump across without wasting the cooldown on Jump Jet, just tap space bar from high ground. One of the best uses for pharah here is not entering the dojo but jumping up into the little cubbyhole/rafter. It's a great spot where you can fire rockets or ult without much harrassment, and you have an easy escape.
Reaper - Shadowstep to cross the gap on attack. Wraith Walk so you don't die to the bastion. And then shoot him a lot. Or just death blossom the whole team for a play of the game. Or just have a Mercy. https://youtu.be/CJ-SuggvTxM
Soldier: 76 - Use your sprint and jump to cross gaps. I recomend practicing running to Hanamura's point B because it's hard. Don't stand on the right side of the door frames or they'll move you midair. You can use your Helix Rockets for a rocket jump boost, but there's an awning that stops you from getting too high.
Tracer - Use your blink to cross the gap. Try to save as many charges as you can though. You're squishy and if you're flanking without a healer present, you need blink for mobility on the capture point.
2:13 Overwatch Defense Characters
Bastion - Jump at the last second from the high ground as you're running from point B to point A to make the jump. You can stand on top of the post if that's easier. If anyone can use "Configuration: Tank" to make it across on attack, let me know with a video response and I'll link it!
Hanzo - On attack, jumping from the window is tricky. You have to wall climp the supporting pillar and not the crossbeams. It's easier for Hanzo to just run up the side wall at the first wooden section and jump from there.
Junkrat - A lot of new players don't even know you can jump with Junkrat's concussion mine. Fewer know you can double jump. https://youtu.be/lWpe_KMrTCc
Mei - Mei's great at blocking bastion or torbjorn turrets, so it's great to bring her in on the point with a flank. Only thing to say is to place the walls as far on the edge as you can.
Torbjorn - He's short but he's got jumps...only on Defense though.
Widowmaker - I'm only including widowmaker here for completeness. But like Pharah, she works really well from up high in the little nook. In the main dojo side entrance, you can also hop up on top of the shrine. You'll die eventually, but you'll get a couple kills and force the enemy team to look up, which is a bad thing for them to do if everyone else is there too.
4:42 Overwatch Tank Characters
D.Va - Use your boosters to cross and wait for your team while protecting them with your Defense Matrix. Or just fly straight into the point and Self Destruct for an easy PotG.
Reinhardt - Put up your barrier field as soon as you get across if you're flanking as a group, and try to go first. Also as defense, it's easier to just charge across, but jumping is possible.
Roadhog - Without any move speed, he requires a mei or a lucio to get across on attack. Practice the defense jump too, before you do it in a game. It's not too bad, but it's tricky. Whole Hog isn't enough of a "boost" to get you across.
Winston - After you jump across, throw down a bubble / Barrier Protector if the team needs it as they cross, otherwise, save the cooldown. You can also jump onto the high ground and look into the point from the rafters to scout what's going on before your team full engages from the side.
Zarya - Oh man, Zarya's double particle cannon rocket jump blew my mind. Big thanks to smG for his video, pardon his music. https://youtu.be/Lhd1Me2-18A
6:20 Overwatch Support Characters
Lucio - Ok, I'm running out of room and not adding as much useful stuff as I normally do, sorry. Wall ride. Don't die.
Mercy - Float (Angelic Descent). Don't Fall. Or go with a friend and use Guardian Angel. What? Are you gonna solo cap as Mercy? lol
Symmetra - Can't make it on attack anymore, but bastion doesn't have a shield, so why do you have Symmetra on attack?
Zenyatta - Practice the jump.
