Meet Brigitte, The Newest Overwatch Hero

Activision has been teasing a new hero for their massive hit Overwatch, and with speculation, a lot of folks were adamant that the reveal would be about it being Torbjörn’s daughter, Brigitte. Turns out they were right, and she was revealed today!

  • Rocket Flail – Brigitte’s melee weapon has an extended range, enabling her to strike multiple enemies with a single swing.
  • Repair Pack – Brigitte throws a Repair Pack that can heal an ally. Any healing over that ally’s maximum health provides them with armor instead.
  • Whip Shot – Brigitte throws her flail a long distance, dealing damage and knocking an enemy away from her.
  • Barrier Shield – Brigitte deploys a frontal energy barrier to absorb a limited amount of damage.
  • Shield Bash – Once her Barrier Shield is deployed, Brigitte can dash forward to stun an enemy.
  • Inspire – When Brigitte hits enemies with her flail, she also heals nearby allies over time.
  • Rally – Brigitte moves faster and provides all nearby allies with armor that lasts until it’s removed by damage.
