Lúcio is a Ranged Support Hero from the Overwatch universe.

From the streets of Rio to the clubs on King’s Row, Lúcio’s beats bring the party to life, and drive the people to action. Now he’s on tour in the Nexus, ready to break it down, and to continue fighting for what’s right.

Lúcio is a highly mobile Support who constantly heals or grants Movement Speed to all allies around him.

Background

Lúcio's close-knit community was thrown into chaos when the multinational Vishkar Corporation secured a contract to redevelop large tracts of the city. Lúcio and his neighbors had been told that the development would improve their lives. However, that promise never became a reality. Vishkar imposed controls on the residents in the name of building a more orderly society: enforcing curfews, cracking down on what the company perceived as lawless behavior, and exploiting the populace as a cheap labor force.

Lúcio wouldn't stand for it. He stole Vishkar sonic technology that had been used to suppress the people, and he converted it into a tool to rally them to action.

Gameplay Summary

Lúcio is a very mobile Support with high utility, capable of enabling allies and providing constant and passive healing or movement through Crossfade.

Overall, Lúcio fits in most team compositions, and has enough flexibility in combat to allow allies to engage or disengage when needed. He works greatly as either a solo or secondary Support.

Strengths

  • Highest mobility of all Supports thanks to Wallride.
  • Very mana efficient.
  • Outstanding on duo lane maps.
  • Can use Basic Attacks while moving.
  • Excelent at kiting.
  • Decent at all phases of the game, but becomes extremely strong at level 16.
  • Soundwave allows Lúcio to provide frequent peel for allies, as well put opponents out of position.
  • Crossfade is a highly versatile ability that allows Lúcio to either granting bonus movement speed to allies, or provide an area of effect sustained healing.
  • Amp It Up is a powerful cooldown that empowers Crossfade.
  • Sound Barrier is one of the strongest defensive cooldowns in the game, allowing Lúcio to greatly mitigate damage that otherwise would be lethal.
  • Reverse Amp is great to take down priority targets.

Weaknesses

  • Poor damage and little to non-existing waveclear.
    • Because of this, he is incapable of solo laning.
  • Low health.
  • Very susceptible to stuns and other forms of hard lockdowns.
  • Features no forms of hard crowd control.
  • Requires high map awareness.
  • Sound Barrier can be easily interrupted if Lúcio is poorly positioned.

Tips

Matchups

Pairings

Arthasplate.png
Lúcio’s Speed Boost is a great enabler for heroes who are normally limited by a lack of mobility. Arthas benefits greatly from Lúcio’s ability to quickly get him into the fray so that he can slow the enemy team and enable additional teammates to burst them down.


D.Vaplate.png
D.Va’s reduced Move Speed is offset by Lúcio’s Speed Boost, allowing her to have even more uptime on her Basic Attacks. D.Va is also incredibly resilient, allowing Lucio’s Healing Boost to get maximum value on her multiple Health pools.


Probiusplate.png
Lúcio and Probius work very well together, as they both can siege an enemy base almost indefinitely. These two heroes complement each other very well in other ways too, as Lucio’s Speed Boost is great for getting Probius out of a pinch, and Probius makes up for Lucio’s lack of wave clear.


Tassadarplate.png
Some of Lúcio’s weaknesses are that he lacks wave clear and single-target burst healing. Tassadar shores both of these up nicely with Plasma Shield and Psionic Storm. When these two heroes are on the same team, it can be very difficult for opponents to find a good kill target.


Zaryaplate.png
Similar to Tassadar, Zarya pairs well with Lúcio in that she can negate enemy burst damage. Heroes who work well in multi-Warrior compositions also pair well with Lúcio, as they are tough enough to survive enemy burst damage while also providing a strong front line for Lúcio to hide behind.


Effective against

Effective foes

The Butcherplate.png
The Butcher excels at taking down squishy targets like Lúcio. Ruthless Onslaught can and will often force Lúcio to retreat to the backlines if targeted. Lamb To The Slaughter is capable of completely shutting down Lúcio's mobility and healing if he is caught within the fray. If Furnace Blast is chosen instead, it remains capable of quickly bursting down Lúcio and can force him to use Sound Barrier in order to avoid a certain death.


Diabloplate.png
Heroes who can quickly close the gap like Diablo can give Lúcio as hard time, as they are often difficult to kite. Lúcio also has an unfortunate penchant for being near walls, which is something that Diablo can easily take advantage of with Shadow Charge.


Li-Mingplate.png
Lúcio is fantastic for long, drawn out fights, but struggles against enemies who can quickly burst their targets down. If even one of Lúcio’s teammates gets too low, Li-Ming can quickly take advantage and kill his entire team before he has the time to bring their Health pools back up.


Zeratulplate.png
Lúcio doesn’t have much Health, and his main source of protecting himself is via his knockback and increased Movement Speed. Zeratul preys on low-Health targets and has multiple ways to close the gap, making him an especially difficult foe to shake off.
