Counters Top

Heroes That Lucio Could Counter:

Bastion: With his High Movement Speed and Wall Running provides Lúcio to make a threat or some disruption against Bastion stationary playstyle.

Reaper: When Lúcio applies hit ult this far counters Reaper's make him exposed to knock-back and barely have anytime to react with Lúcio's speed,range, and knock-back.

Winston: While the gorilla is focused on flaking the enemy team and picking of the weak. This is very counter-able because Lúcio will be with his team providing heals and movement to destroy any threat that tries to pull off something crazy.

Heroes That Counter Lucio:

Mei: She could Lúcio in almost every way with her freeze gun that could stop Lúcio allowing her team or herself to pick off the kill. Also if Lúcio try to wall run this allows Mei to summon her ice wall to disrupt Lúcio to flank her.

Zarya: Zarya is a great counter against Lúcio due to multiple ways. Zarya could use her ult allowing to stop Lúcio and allow to pick him off easily while Lúcio has no mobility. Her personal shield allows her to absorb that damage and use it as her own to deal massive damage in a short burst with the low health Lúcio.

Hanzo: Hanzo long range and massive damage out burst make him a threat to Lúcio while at long distances away from Lúcio Hanzo could easily pick him off without getting inside Lúcio's range making him a less of a threat. If Hanzo have to fight Lúcio in close range he could use his ult to pick him off like nothing doing a insta kill on Lúcio.
