What the New Overwatch Hero, Ana, Can Do

ow_ana_3p_004_png_jpgcopy

After a bit of teasing last week, Blizzard has unveiled Ana, the next hero coming to Overwatch. According to the game’s lore, she’s a seasoned agent- she lost an eye after she hesitated during a mission, and apparently that was a mistake she doesn’t intend to repeat; you can check out her story trailer embedded below.

How she plays is pretty interesting as she’s a support sniper- no, that’s not a contradiction. Ana is meant for long range bursts of healing and dealing damage with her Biotic Rifle- she also has access to Biotic grenades, which damage enemies while enemies and heals allies within an AoE- what’s interesting about this is that allies in the area of the grenade will receive increased healing from other sources for a period of time, while enemies caught by the blast will lose the ability to be healed for a while- which is pretty terrifying. Not only can she deal damage and heal allies, but her biotic grenade can shut down other supports.

What’s more, Ana caries around a sleep dart as a sidearm, which will knock out enemies- it can end an ultimate ability early, such as McCree’s High Noon. Finally, Ana’s ultimate ability, Nano Boost, gives an ally increased movement speed, buffed damage and reduced inbound damage.

What do you think about Ana? Sound off below or hit us up and follow @Blackmannrobin for all the latest game news, reviews, previews and interviews; follow me for my own views.
