Torbjorn’s daughter joins the fray as the newest Support hero.
Support mains are currently being spoiled in Blizzard’s Overwatch. After Moira, the newest hero to join the roster is Brigitte, Torbjorn’s daughter and the newest Support hero. She’s currently live on the Public Test Realm for PC so make sure to download the latest PTR build.
Brigitte’s abilities include throwing hitting foes with her Flail, which heals nearby teammates, via wide swings or hitting them at range with Whip Shot. Barrier Shield provides some measure of defense and can also stun enemies when Shield Bash is used. Rally offers a boost in speed and armour for any teammates that are nearby. If that weren’t enough, Brigitte can also toss Repair Packs to heal her allies.
You can check out Brigitte’s full ability list here or listen to director Jeff Kaplan discuss her utility in the latest developer update. Obviously it will be some time before she’s available on live servers so stay tuned for more information.
