Blizzard’s competitive FPS, Overwatch, never seems to slow down outputting great content with the latest being a new character, dubbed Brigitte.

Brigitte takes on the role of a Tank/support hero with her array of utility abilities. First off her melee weapon, the rocket flail, swings Reinhardt’s hammer and restores heal to both her and nearby allies. Whipshot does some crowd control, pushing an enemy enforcer away from a battle and she has a shield which can be used both to protect her, and to shield bash enemies. What’s more, she also has ‘repair packs’ which Brigitte can throw out to provide players with armor. She can also use Rally to distribute armor to all around her. Rally also provides Brigitte with a speed boost.
