I thought I’d put together a very entry-level, hero-by-hero guide on how ult usage interacts with ammo count and reloading. Some of this may seem obvious to those who have played for a while, but newer players could always benefit from it, and you never know if you may have missed something!

Tanks

  • DVa: N/A, primary fire has infinite ammo, though Baby DVa always spawns with full ammo

  • Orisa: Deploying Supercharger does not reload her gun. Worth noting that you can continue to fire while deploying ult, however it will interrupt her reload animation

  • Reinhart: N/A, primary “fire” does not use ammo

  • Roadhog: Ammo resets to full at end of Whole Hog

  • Sigma: N/A, primary fire has infinite ammo

  • Winston: Ammo resets to full at end of Primal Rage

  • Wrecking Ball: Deploying Minefield does not reload his guns, however it interrupts the reload animation and temporarily interrupts firing

  • Zarya: Graviton Surge does not reload her gun

Damage

  • Ashe: Deploying BOB does not reload her gun, and interrupts her reload animation

  • Bastion: Ammo resets to full at end of Tank Configuration. Worth noting that Sentry Mode ammo automatically refills after a few seconds in Recon Mode, and vice versa

  • Doomfist: Meteor Strike does not automatically reload his gun (however during testing, his gun had refilled itself by the time the ultimate animation was complete)

  • Echo: Ammo (and health) resets to full at end of Duplicate

  • Genji: Ammo resets to full at beginning of Dragonblade

  • Hanzo: N/A, primary fire has infinite ammo

  • Junkrat: Ammo resets to full at beginning of Riptire

  • McCree: Ammo resets to full at beginning of High Noon, however ammo is expended when High Noon is fired. Worth noting that ammo is refilled at end of Combat Roll

  • Mei: Deploying Blizzard does not reload her gun

  • Pharah: Ammo resets to full at end of Barrage

  • Reaper: Ammo resets to full at end of Death Blossom. Worth noting that ammo is refilled at beginning of Wraith Form

  • Soldier 76: Ammo resets to full at beginning of Tactical Visor

  • Sombra: EMP does not reload her gun

  • Symmetra: Deploying Photon Barrier does not reload her gun

  • Torbjorn: Ammo resets to full at end of Molten Core

  • Tracer: Deploying Pulse Bomb does not reload her guns. Worth noting that ammo is refilled at end of Recall (regardless of “when” she recalls to)

  • Widowmaker: Activating Infra-sight does not reload her gun, however it interrupts the reload animation and temporarily interrupts firing

Support

  • Ana: Deploying Nano-boost does not reload her gun

  • Baptiste: Deploying Amplification Matrix does not reload his gun

  • Brigitte: N/A, primary “fire” does not use ammo

  • Lucio: Activating Sound Barrier does not reload his gun

  • Mercy: Ammo resets to full at end of Valkyrie. Has infinite ammo for duration of ultimate

  • Moira: N/A, primary & secondary fire do not use ammo. Worth noting that damaging enemies with Coalescence does not refill her healing meter

  • Zenyatta: Ammo resets to full at beginning of Transcendence

This was all tested 16 Sep 2020 in the practice range.
