Overwatch has released a new hero, and to everyone’s surprise, it is not doomfist. Orisa is the new tank hero in overwatch, and she’s unique in that she doesn’t really have an extensive history because she’s the only hero to just be created. Her creator Efi had made her in a response to the Numbani airport, where Doomfist attacked OR-15 units and took off with the Doomfist Gauntlet. After this incident, many of the citizens of Numbani believed that these defence units were useless and were decommissioned. Efi used the decommissioned robot as a frame for her new bot, made some adjustments and added personality to the robot resulting in our new quadruped hero.
But what can Orisa actually do?
Quotes from Overwatch’s official website
“Orisa’s automatic projectile cannon delivers sustained damage, but slows her movement while she fires it.”
This ability does 12 damage per bullet at a rate of 12 bullets per second, and with a magazine of 200 bullets per reload she is effectively a walking minigun.
“Orisa temporarily reduces damage she takes, and cannot be affected by action-impairing effects.”
She takes 50% less damage during this abilities duration and cannot be affected by CC for 4 seconds.
Basically a mini Zarya Ultimate. Orisa launches one of these and people in range will be pulled in for 1 second. She can do this EVERY 8 seconds.
Orisa throws out a shield with 900 health that last for 20 seconds. She can do this every 12 seconds.
Orisa’s ultimate throws out a destructible supercharger that buffs teammates for 50% damage if they are within 30m of the item.
The supercharger only has 200 health so be prepared to protect it.
After reviewing some gameplay from youtuber unit lost, Orisa looks VERY powerful. I can’t wait to play her in the upcoming update.
