After a series of teases, Blizzard has confirmed Overwatch Hero 27 is Brigitte Lindholm, who will be available on the PTR today.
Brigitte’s strengths lie in armor and defense, including her ability to throw repair packs and use her Flail, a melee weapon allowing her to hit a number of enemies with one swing. Her full list of abilities, along with their official descriptions, include:
- 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.
