Overwatch has introduced a new character, Brigitte Lindholm – a new support character now live on PTR. Daughter of Torbjörn Lindholm, Brigitte specialises in armour and defense with the ability throw ‘Repair Packs’ to heal teammates while using her Flail to inflict damage on multiple targets at close range or a range hit with the ‘Whip Shot’. She also has a few defense abilities such as the ‘Barrier Shield’ for personal defense and ‘Shield Charge’ which is self explanatory.
Here’s the rundown of her abilities:
- 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 armour instead.
- Whip Shot – Brigitte throws her flail a long distance, dealing damage and knocking an enemy away from her.
- Barrier Shield – Brigitte deploys a frontal energy barrier to absorb a limited amount of damage.
- Shield Bash – Once her Barrier Shield is deployed, Brigitte can dash forward to stun an enemy.
- Inspire – When Brigitte hits enemies with her flail, she also heals nearby allies over time.
- Rally – Brigitte moves faster and provides all nearby allies with armour that lasts until it’s removed by damage.
