New Overwatch Hero Ashe Now Live On PTR
Announced at BlizzCon 2018, Overwatch’s 29th hero Ashe joins the team as the newest versatile damage hero. Using her semi-automatic rifle ‘The Viper’ Ashe can fire from her hip or use the aim sight to inflict a high damage shot.
Ashe is a 39-year-old gang leader and thief from Dreadlock Gorge, Arizona, USA and is a respected figure in the criminal underworld. She comes from a wealthy family but was always a trouble maker and never received the familial love she longed for. Watch the origin story below.
Ashe, like all other Overwatch hero’s has a list of abilities which help her battle her way through the world. These include:
- The Viper – Her lever-action rifle with two firing modes: semi-automatic hip fire with high spread and aim-down-sight for increased damage, precise shots.
- Coach Gun – A short range high impact sidearm dealing big damage knocking back nearby enemies similar to Lucio’s Sonic Amplifier.
- Dynamite – An explosive that has a delayed detonation, unless shot, dealing high damage and fire damage.
- B.O.B – Ashe’s ultimate calls on her trusted omnic sidekick Bob. Bob rushes forwards knocking enemies into the air and then continues to lay down suppressing fire.
Ashe is now live on the PTR so you can get all your gun-slinging desires fulfilled in Overwatch now! To see what you’re in for, watch her gameplay sizzle video below.
