Ashe made a spectacular debut as Overwatch’s 29th hero in the course of the BlizzCon opening ceremony, making her presence recognized in a brand new animated quick. Blizzard has lifted the veil on the talents of this Damage hero, and her ult is among the most unusual within the game – it summons Bob., a robotic companion who principally serves as a seventh hero in your workforce.
If her rivalry with McCree within the quick didn’t make it clear sufficient, Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe is a gunslinger from the American southwest who heads up the Deadlock Gang. Her tried practice theft can also be apparently the reason for the wreck by the diner on the Route 66 map.
Ashe’s main weapon is The Viper, a Winchester-style rifle that has two firing modes. The semi-automatic possibility provides you fast hearth at excessive unfold, whereas aiming down sights helps you to take cautious intention if you happen to don’t thoughts giving up velocity.
She’s additionally geared up with the Coach Gun, a sawed-off shotgun sidearm that offers a whole lot of injury and knocks enemies again. It additionally knocks Ashe again, which provides her a novel mobility device – assume rocket leaping, however with a shotgun.
Ashe can toss Dynamite as a type of time-delayed grenade. The preliminary blast does a whole lot of injury to enemies, and it units them on hearth for bonus injury over time. You also can shoot the Dynamite to set it off early for extra management over when it detonates.
Bob, Ashe’s derby-clade robotic enforcer, was already a fan-favourite by the top of the animated quick, and he serves as her final capacity: B.O.B. – Blizzard refers Bob as Bob and the last word as B.O.B. within the press launch, so I’m going with that fashion. In any case, Bob rushes out and knocks your foes into midair whereas utilizing his arm cannons to place out suppressing hearth.
During the Overwatch panel, Blizzard described Bob as a type of seventh hero in your workforce – he can obtain buffs from different members of your workforce and may even seize factors. (Maybe he’ll be prepared to get on the payloard when no person else will.)
Ashe is playable on the BlizzCon present ground, so hopefully it received’t be an excessive amount of longer earlier than she hits the PTR and dwell Overwatch servers. We’ll quickly see far more of what she will be able to do, in any case. Our guesses for new Overwatch heroes will maintain you occupied within the meantime – I guarantee you this hypothesis is solely critical and (nearly) completely assured to occur.
