The Latest Overwatch Character Is Ashe

The Latest Overwatch Character Is Ashe

The first new character revealed is Ashe, a white-haired gunslinger and the leader of McCree's old gang, Deadlock.

She is a damage hero with a mix of ranged weapons and a unique support ability as her ultimate.

Unfortunately, the Overwatch LEGO sets won't be available until January 1, meaning you won't be finding one under the Christmas tree. While the Deadlock Gang was bested, Ashe got to show off her abilities in both the cinematic and the gameplay trailer accompanying the video. The upcoming sets will feature some characters fighting each other, locations from the game, and more.

Ashe's main weapon is The Viper, a semi-automatic rifle that can be fired quickly from the hip or down sights for more powerful and accurate shots.

"Ashe blasts enemies in front of her, knocking them away and propelling herself backward for added mobility". The enormous pushback can propel her into the air if shot at the ground and it can also push enemies away too similarly to Brigitte's flail.

"Ashe throws an explosive that detonates after a short delay or immediately when shot".

Those lucky few at BlizzCon are getting the chance to try out the newest Overwatch hero, Ashe, before everyone else, so of course, emongg had to try her as well. The conclusion of the short reveals that an Omnic robot named Echo was inside Route 66's payload.
