There is a Team Tip before the game starts saying

There is no builder hero in the team.

According to the official website, there are only 4 character classes:

  1. Offense
  2. Defense
  3. Tank
  4. Support

4 classes

I guess that builder is a sub-class of support, but what is a builder hero exactly?

Is there an official source or a wiki article to read about this topic? Can someone list all the builder heroes?

    Side note since this was bumped to the main page: The notice about Builder Heroes hasn't been in the game for some time now.

Torbjörn and Symmetra are the builders. They build turrets. This is what the warning message is referencing.

  • And only those two ?

    Currently, I believe these are the only two who fill that role.

    Unrelated, but if you see the warning for 'No Snipers' on defense, Only Hanzo and Widowmaker fill those roles.

  • Yeah, seems really weird to have team tips for a role that can only be filled by such niche heroes. Maybe this tip only shows up on Defense maps?
