Ana, a support sniper, is to be Overwatch’s 22nd hero, Blizzard has revealed.
Widely considered to be one of the world’s best snipers, Ana has the unique ability of both restoring the health of allies, and taking down enemies.
Ana’s rifle shoots darts that can restore health to her allies or deal ongoing damage to her enemies. She can use the rifle’s scope to zoom in on targets and make highly accurate shots.
Ana fires a dart from her sidearm, rendering an enemy unconscious (though any damage will rouse them).
Ana tosses a biotic bomb that deals damage to enemies and heals allies in a small area of effect. Affected allies briefly receive increased healing from all sources, while enemies caught in the blast cannot be healed for a few moments.
After Ana hits one of her allies with a combat boost, they temporarily move faster, deal more damage, and take less damage from enemies’ attacks.
Ana is now available on the Overwatch Public Test Realm, with an official release to follow.
