Best part about widow is winning games while not hitting shots, especially not headshots. Because widow is that threathening and deals so much damage from so far away she can only be countered by another widow. Dive doesn’t work.
If I play sightlines and don’t duel out with the enemy widow, but I can just grind out the HP of every other enemy on the team such as their tanks, I win. And they cannot proceed as long as they are in my sightlines in fear of death. And the enemy widow cannot take me out if I don’t expose myself to them and purposefully avoid dueling the better widows who are far better shots than I am. My accuracy is truly and utterly abysmal. Yet I can win.
If I have high ground such as hollywood after first point, they are forced to dive me and I can simply drop down, get heals and dismantle them. It’s ridiculously easy. I can play widow like spam damage. I can play her far efficient zone controller than symmetra, since I’m practically never at risk. And it 100% forces enemy team to counter me.
If I don’t play widow, I can just stand behind a good widow damageboosting them and they will get me kills and I might as well yawn because I don’t need to do anything else to win. I don’t even need to heal the team and if they get ultid, I just ulti back and delay long enough so our widow can snap their heads off and make their ulti spam useless.
Widow is extremely vexxing to fight against, she truly is. And the better the widow, the worse it gets.
Fact is you have to use multiple, completely open Widow sightlines to get past multiple choke points in this game and there are zero way to bypass them. Such as gibraltar attack after getting first point, there is nothing but 4 different doorways that widow can watch at all times. And even if you position outside of widow sightline, she can simply reposition, there’s plenty of maps in this game not named King’s row that are very vastly open.
