Weeks after its first teaser, Blizzard has finally revealed its newest hero, Ana Amari. She was one of the founding members of Overwatch. Ana also happens to be the mother of Pharah, Fareeha Amari.

Ana was an elite sniper considered as the best. She served as Strike Commander Morrison’s second-in-command. Ana remained on active duty into her fifties, until she was believed to have been killed in an encounter. But like Morrison, Ana survived despite being gravely wounded and losing her right eye. Now Ana is back on the battlefield, protecting her allies as Overwatch support sniper.

Here’s the detailed information about her kit:

● Biotic Rifle

Ana’s rifle can shoot darts that can restore the health of her allies or deal ongoing damage to her enemies. She can also use the rifle’s scope to zoom in on targets and make accurate shots.

● Sleep Dart

Ana fires a dart from her sidearm which renders the target unconscious for 5.5 seconds.

● Biotic Grenada

Ana tosses a biotic bomb in an area that heals all allies and damage all enemies in the area. Affected allies in the area will receive increased healing from all sources. While enemies caught in the blast won’t be able to heal for a few moments.

● Nano Boost

Ana hits one of her allies with combat boost. It makes her ally move faster, deal more damage and take less damage from enemies’ attacks.
