Characters have always been a highlight of Blizzard, and the Overwatch series is no different. Similar to its predecessor, Overwatch 2 will include a sizable cast of heroes with a wide range of play styles.
All of the playable Overwatch characters will be back in Overwatch 2, according to Blizzard. Though many won’t play exactly how fans are used to, some are getting considerable reworks, and many others are getting balancing adjustments and tweaks to make them more current for the sequel. New heroes will also be added to Overwatch 2, with the first one already appearing in the game’s open beta.
Seismic Slam: Doomfist leaps forward, and slams into the ground, causing 50 damage and 30% damage reduction to foes nearby.
Power Block: Doomfist assumes a defensive position, minimizing frontal damage by 90%. He becomes supercharged and increases the potency of his subsequent Rocket Punch if he successfully blocks at least 100 damage.
Rocket Punch: Doomfist charges up his rocket punch before lunging forward to knock an adversary to the ground. The adversary sustains more damage if they run into a wall. Doomfist can perhaps throw back more foes who are behind an enemy by striking them.
Meteor Strike (ulti): In his ulti move, “Meteor Strike,” Doomfist propels himself into the air and chooses where to land. All foes around are damaged upon landing and are delayed by 50% for two seconds.
Defense Matrix: D.va turns on a front-facing shield that deflects shots and bullets. Defense Matrix can also deflect several projectile-based ultimate abilities, such as Hanzo’s Dragonstrike and Zarya’s Graviton Surge.
Boosters: When inside her mech, D.Va can accelerate quickly, which she may use to move ahead or up into the air. While the Boosters are on, she can fire and change directions.
Micro Missiles: After a little wait, D.Va fires a barrage of tiny missiles in the direction she is facing.
Self-Destruct (ulti): After ejecting from her mech, D.va causes it to detonate after three seconds. She can call another mech with Call Mech if the first one blows up.
Jagged Blade: Junker Queen’s standard melee move, Jagged Blade, transforms into a broad knife swing that deals extra damage and affixes a wounding debuff that prevents healing. She may also recall and throw her knife as a secondary distance strike. When Junker Queen remembers the knife she had flung, enemies are drawn to her.
Commanding Shout: Increases the armor and movement speed of close teammates.
Rampage (ulti): Junker Queen lunges forward while spinning her axe. She heals herself, applies the same wound debuff to opponents, and delivers damage to anybody in her path.
