Uprising was Overwatch’s latest event and is considered by many fans to be one of, if not the best season brawl that developer Blizzard has crafted. Set in the past, players assumed control of either Reinhardt, Tracer, Torbjorn, or Mercy and were tasked with completing multiple objectives all while staving off robotic enemies. While the event has been over for a little more than a week, Blizzard has decided to release in a post the numbers for a variety of different statistics pertaining to the event
Here are some of the statistics from the event:
- 145,505,333 Uprising Brawls Completed
- 78,273,935 Null Sector Victories
- 67,232,398 Overwatch Victories
- 8,546,653,485 Omnics Destroyed
- Most Destroyed by a Single Player in a Single Game:
- 1,911 on PC
- 2,155 on Xbox One
- 2,360 on PlayStation 4
- Average Win Rate:
- Normal – 75%
- Hard – 28%
- Expert – 3%
- Legendary – 0.6%
- Most Picked Heroes:
- Soldier 76
- 815,548,819 Loot Boxes Opened
While it’s no surprise that Bastion and Mercy are among the top picked, what’s curious is that Zenyatta has the highest win rate on legendary difficulty at 2.3%. Yet, he is not among the top picked heroes for this mode, meaning those who have used this Omnic Monk have been extremely lucky with how many games they’ve won using him.
Having the Null Sector beat out the player base by over nearly 10,000,000 matches is also fascinating and shows just how difficult Uprising could get once you pass Hard Mode. We are still some time away from the yet to be announced Overwatch anniversary event, however, it will be interesting to see what Blizzard is hiding up their sleeves.

There is no doubt that this community wants a PvE (Player vs Environment), especially after the massive player turnout that Uprising caused. Now all we have to do is wait and see if Uprising will make a glorious return or remain a fond memory.
