Doomfist is currently available for PC players through the recent PTR update, and the feedback is mostly positive. The latest Play Overwatch blog post invited us to know more of Doomfist’s history as well as his abilities and attacks.

Doomfist’s cybernetics make him a highly-mobile, powerful frontline fighter. In addition to dealing ranged damage with his Hand Cannon, Doomfist can slam the ground, knock enemies into the air and off balance, or charge into the fray with his Rocket Punch. When facing a tightly packed group, Doomfist leaps out of view, then crashes down to earth with a spectacular Meteor Strike.

Abilities

  • Seismic Slam – Doomfist leaps forward and smashes into the ground, knocking nearby enemies toward him.
  • Rising Uppercut – Doomfist uppercuts enemies in front of him into the air.
  • Rocket Punch – After charging up, Doomfist lunges forward and knocks an enemy back, dealing additional damage if they impact a wall.
  • The Best Defense… – Doomfist generates temporary personal shields when he deals ability damage.
  • Meteor Strike – Doomfist leaps into the sky, then crashes to the ground, dealing significant damage.
