How much damage can Genji do in 2 moves?

General Discussion
I was a soldier on the payload, genji came around the corner -> dashed -> spread shuri in the head+melee. Basically one shotted. Can someone do the math? I thought deflect, djump spam, faceroll ult was bad, but man, the shotgun-shuri is the most insane thing about gengu. It's like a no-cooldown scatter spam that takes no aim.
His projectiles, and head hitboxes are so generous in this game it makes it especially bad. It's like a mini jumping Reaper in your face.
Swift Strike - 50
Shuriken - 27 (54 headshot)
Melee - 30

So realistically he doesn't even have to melee you to kill you if he swift strikes at the right distance, spins around and alt fires and gets three headshots.
Dashes through you,180s and manages to triple headshot you then melee

If he manages to land all 3 shurikens in your head, you're pretty much dead 90% of the time since he'll just dash through you.
Like 170

Oh sure pulling it off 100% to the head takes aim, like what happened to me. Outside that though, it's a reaper shotgun. Which is insane on a cyborg ninja.
dashing into someone and then using the secondary shuriken on the head right after will do a lot of damage

Haha this omg how do I always get 1shot by a aimbot genji is pretty silly if he's that good play him
Yup, its a !@#$ing joke
Dash is always so interesting since it feels like it does double damage against me. I often feel like I have 80ish HP left, but I always die to 1 dash. Not rare that I start to wonder if they do headshot me.

Or can you shuriken cancel reflect and do shuriken + dash?

Anyway, some people know how to do damage on genji, and it sure isn't obvious to me how to improve my dashes to that level.

You play soldier and mccree who have similar comboes
Helix Melee
Headshot melee

ohhhh but it is because it's Genji, got it
He has some of the worst consistent damage in the game.

In return, he has some of the best burst damage.

Also shuriken Hitboxes are small, like Hanzo's current arrows, they've never been changed.

I know Hanzo isn't shooting trunk anymore but I won't call them small...
Its pretty funny to me how people are still complaining about genji LOL. If you are standing still just chilling or have a genji come so close up to you behind you that just means you are bad, not genji the problem. In fact you are ez for any hero to kill.

They're slightly bigger than hitscan. Like, ever so slightly.
