I would like to suggest noting that McCree's primary fire can crit (headshot, or Bastion's back, etc), while secondary fire can not. So there's no reason to try to flash/fan headshots when you can flash/fan center-mass and get more reliable damage output.

I honestly believe that the primary shot is better at any range, due to the possibility to change target once your primiary target is dead. One flashbang followed up by a primary headshot will kill any squishy, and leave you with 5 more bullets to interact with other enemies that might be coming your way.

It is, for sure. The guide is outdated in that respect - with the nerfs to FtH, you basically will just flash, double tap and kill most heroes. For tanks, you will need to be more careful.

Thank you for the guide(s), great stuff. 🙂 One general question: what reticle settings would you suggest for each hero, or do you use the same settings for every hero? Same goes with DPI and sensitivity.

Here you go, who knows this better than pros, no?

In general though, if you need to have a good aim with the hero (Most DPS, Ana, Zen, Lucio and etc.) your sensitivity should be low. If you play Rein, keep it high. With Rein, you should be a able to do a 360 by moving your mouse from one side of the mousepad to the other. Then comes Winston and Mercy, which doesn't care too much about aim, then the rest comes.

      Here come the patch notes for today's update, featuring the already announced Anniversary event, but also bringing the biggest update to Overwatch in a long time to live servers - the Workshop has arrived! You can check out a detailed walkthrough for the new tool here.
      Baptiste and Hammond also receive some fixes to how their abilities interact with moving platforms and there's a whole lot of bug fixes as usual.

      New Seasonal Event: Overwatch Anniversary 2019
      Celebrate Overwatch’s third anniversary with brand new items, including Legendary and Epic skins like Riot Police Brigitte, Academy D.Va, Carbon Fiber Doomfist, Honeydew Mei, Orbital Pharah, Gargoyle Winston, and many more! Did you miss any Overwatch festivities over the previous years? Don’t worry—you’ll be able to unlock items from past events using credits (or by opening Loot Boxes!) Relive the thrill of previous seasonal brawls in the Arcade, with a brawl of the day rotating throughout the Anniversary celebration. Thank you so much for playing Overwatch with us over the past three years! Your continued support and enthusiasm help drive us to keep creating. We look forward to celebrating with you in-game!
      Workshop
      We’re excited to share a new in-game feature called the Workshop! The Workshop greatly expands the game customization features available in the Game Browser by providing a simplified game scripting system. Enhance the Overwatch game modes you know and love with new game rules, new victory conditions, adjustments to the hero movement and abilities, and much more. Once you’ve designed an awesome new game mode, create a code to share it with your friends or the whole community*! To get started using the Workshop, see our Workshop blog post. We’re excited to see what you come up with! (* Codes created in China cannot be shared with the rest of the world. Codes created outside of China can’t be used by players in China.) Note that Workshop is a complex feature that we’re still iterating on, so we may need to adjust or turn it off as we work to improve it. Please post any questions or issues in the Workshop forum.

      Overwatch Anniversary
      Some event rewards (Skins, Icons, etc.) aren’t translated into Japanese. We’re working on finishing up these translations. We’ll add these translations in an upcoming release. Workshop
      The in-game link to the Workshop Forum will currently send you to the English, Chinese, or Korean forum, depending on your region. This will be fixed in an upcoming release. Workshop isn’t completely translated into Japanese. We’re working on finishing up the translations. We’ll add these translations in an upcoming release.
