Here's a quick breakdown of Ashe's abilities
  • The Viper is Ashe's main weapon, a semi-automatic rifle. The gun is capable of quick shots, but does more damage when she aims down the sights.
  • Dynamite explodes in an area after a short delay, dealing damage over time. Ashe can shoot the dynamite to trigger the explosion early.
  • Coach Gun is a short range shotgun that knocks enemies away and can be used to propel Ashe in different directions.
  • B.O.B is Ashe's ultimate, calling in an omnic member of her gang for additional fire support.

A new animated short released during BlizzCon shows a bit of Ashe's history with McCree, one of the original "Overwatch" heroes. The two gunslingers find themselves in a stand-off over a valuable payload on the familiar Route 66 map.

Ashe will be playable on the PC test server before arriving for free on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the coming weeks.
