Don't be afraid to change your position. Being always at the same place won't surprise your opponents, and allow them to get you by surprise.

Tank mode is mainly effective when your team is initiating a push, when there are a lot of opponents within a confined space or to save yourself from a flanking opponent.

Positioning and self control is the best way to play as a Bastion. When Positioning yourself, avoid being out in the open or allow snipers or Roadhog to have a Line of Sight on you. Move around constantly to keep the enemies on their toes, they will prioritize yoe. Learn when to shoot and not too. Be careful when there is a genji or Zarya. Allow them to pop their shield or deflection first, and then fire away.

Going into Configuration: Recon and back into Configuration: Sentry is only a split second slower than normal reloading, and allows you to check your back so you can be ready to fight in Recon Mode or just go back to Sentry Mode.

Stay on the move with Bastion. Once you take damage, change to Configuration: Recon to go heal and set up somewhere else. It's harder for the enemy to set up a gank when you keep changing positions.

Bastion is capable of self-repairing when he's at low HP (similar to Roadhog), but he cannot move, fire, or do anything while he's doing so. Take advantage of this when possible!

If you can get behind him (using teleport and wraith) , in turret mode, Reaper can one or two-shot him before he turns around

Widowmaker is great for taking out Bastion at range in both recon and turret mode. As long as you are far enough away he should be unable to kill you first.

Symmetra can be a good choice when it comes to dealing with a Bastion hiding behind Reinhardt. Her secondary attack is a slow-moving projectile that goes right through Reinhardt's shield, and can remove a large chunk of Bastion's health if he's hit by it. Charge it up while behind cover, peek out and shoot it. Symmetra can shoot one fully charged projectile about every 3 seconds. Bastion will either die after a few of them, or it'll force him to re-position constantly to avoid the projectiles, thus giving your team some breathing room.

Bastion's "head" while in turret mode the the blue glowing box on his back. Hit this for massive damage.

Roadhog's hook and D.Va's boost can pull/push Bastion out of Configuration: Sentry. If he's being a pain, try reminding him that he has Configuration: Recon with a good hook.

Bastion's cake to deal with as Widow. Just scope in cover, let it charge, and then peek repeatedly. Even if he's focusing you he won't be able to kill you before you kill him, and he'll be forced to move or die.

Some heroes are particularly strong against bastion. For example, genji's ability to deflect damage can kill him in seconds. Use your mobility at your advantage.

If Bastion is hiding behind a Reinhardt, you may need to coodinate with your team to dislodge them. Tracer, Junkrat, and Phara have good ultimates for cleaning out a turret emplacement. If you have a Zarya, combo with her to pull them out of position first. Once you get the hang of it, Bastion won't be as scary to deal with.

When Bastion uses Configuration: Tank (ultimate), he gains some armor. This is added to his current health, so watch out for him to use it to try and save himself.
