Bastion needs a nerf to his damage while in turret conf.

General Discussion
Literally, he counters every tank in the game with his 525 dps and very annoying to deal with. If you add that annoying robo ponny to that, tanks and especially tank mains will have such hell when they're just trying to defend their team. Please lower his fire rate or damage output. Though even with Pharah it's very annoying to deal with because you need to go behind and try to kill, but Orisa just might put a barrier in your face.
Bastion is one of the heroes with the most counters AND has to sit PERFECTLY still while in turret mode.

Just get a flanker like Tracer or Genji and they can reliable kill a Bastion.
No.
Lol

Ever wonder why you're silver? This is one of the reasons why.

While your flanker tries to flank and kill him from behind most chances your Rein's shield will be melted already.
Bastion's 525 DPS is only possible on point blank targets or targets larger then his spread, which would be tanks at short range. Otherwise he misses a large amount of his rounds, causing a Soldier 76 to outdps him at medium to long range.

The problem you are having is the fact he is supported by his team. Teamwork is OP has been known for awhile now. Nerfing Bastion would not fix your problem. Especially since he already has the lowest pickrate in the game outside of junkertown el presidente comps.
Roadhog can hook Bastion out of Sentry mode, D.va can eat all of his damage for a while, Reinhardt and Orisa barriers aren't optimal against a Bastion but the robot doesn't really counter these two unless they stand still in the open.

The only tank that Bastion gives some trouble is Winston by denying him areas to jump, but even then Winston can just play safe and wait for Bastion to inevitably die to a frontline or flanker.
Just use flankers such Tracer or Genji or Reaper to kill Bastion when they in Sentry form, or use Roadhog to hook it out of Sentry mode.
Turret mode is objectively worse then just playing fat soldier in recon mode unless they are actually in your face.

Cry less, people like you cause Blizz to listen to you and leave f tier heroes in the garbage
Oh and one tactic you can try to do if you want to take on a Bastion frontally despite a shield comp is to use Moira with Reinhardt.

Firestrike, Damage Orb, and Convalescence all bypass shields completely. Since the Bastion is a stationary target its not hard to hit him. If he abandons his position to try to survive he opens up the rest of the team to push and take him out. Or just make it easy for a flanker to murder him.

You counter teamwork with teamwork.
Sure. But give me critic hits and less spread then.

lol I'll take that. OP would be back here begging for a revert... I miss the old spread :(

That's the entire reason he was put in the game. When he's actually working as intended he is an anti tank saturated team.
this is why ppl don't listen to golds

Except for the fact that Blizzard does, when they nerfed anything interesting out of Hog explicitly due to low level whining
Like Reaper, Bastion is supposed to counter tanks. Turret form has wide spread and cannot get headshots. It is used mostly for breaking down barriers and eliminating larger targets.

New turret mode is there to look at it and throw the entire character in the garbage now
