In Tank mode, Bastion extends wheeled treads and a powerful long-range cannon. The cannon’s explosive shells demolish targets in a wide blast radius, but Bastion can only remain in this mode for a limited time.

Pirate Ship

“Pirate Ship” and “Bunker” are two of Bastion’s best compositions and centers around him. The key pieces are:

  1. Bastion
  2. Mercy
  3. Shield tank (typically 2)

Essentially, Bastion sits in one area undisturbed because of teammates’ shields. “Pirate Ship” typically refers to playing Bastion on attack in an Escort Map and bunker refers to defense on any map. Both work especially well against characters with shorter range or enemy teams lacking a D.Va.
