New Overwatch Hero Brigitte is the daughter of weapons designer Torbjörn Lindholm and Squire in training to Reinhardt. After patching wounds after battles, Brigitte has decided that it is better to help protect those she cares for during battles so that they don’t get hurt as much. Brigitte has taken up arms to join Overwatch and defend those in need of protection.

This new hero looks very interesting, and as a new support hero, there is the talk of her breaking up the current meta, the only way to test this out currently is to have a go on the PTR game and test her new abilities against the usual crew.

Brigitte specialises in armour and defence, with abilities including:

  • Rocket Flail – Melee weapon with an extended range, enabling Brigitte to strike multiple enemies with a single swing.
  • Repair Pack – Throw a Repair Pack that can heal an ally; any healing over that ally’s maximum health provides them with armour instead.
  • Barrier Shield – Deploy a frontal energy barrier to absorb a limited amount of damage.
  • Rally – Move faster and provide all nearby allies with armour that lasts until it’s removed by damage.

Brigitte is now live on the Overwatch PTR so why not try her out.
