Brigitte is the newest addition to Overwatch’s roster of heroes. She is the daughter of Torbjörn Lindholm and works along with Reinhardt Wilhelm, her godfather. She is a mechanical engineer that makes her a great addition to any team.
In Overwatch’s battlefield, she is a versatile support hero who specializes in providing armor to her allies. Unlike most supports, she is a front-line unit, allowing her to provide protection to her team similar to tank-type heroes.
Let’s check out Brigitte’s skills:
Upon striking an enemy with her flail, all allies within Brigitte’s range are healed over time. However, it does not affect allies behind enemy barriers. This skill is unaffected by Sombra’s hack.
Brigitte’s melee weapon has an extended range, this enables her to strike multiple enemies with a single swing.
This skill allows Brigitte’s a Repair Pack that can heal an ally. Any healing over that ally’s maximum health will provide them with armor instead. However, this armor will get removed after some time if not destroyed.
Upon activation, Brigitte throws her flail a long distance, dealing damage and knocking an enemy away from her.
Barrier Shield allows Brigitte to deploy a frontal energy barrier to absorb a limited amount of damage.
Once Brigitte’s Barrier Shield is deployed, she can dash forward to stun an enemy. The effect of this shield can go through barriers.
Rally allows Brigitte to move faster and provides all nearby allies with armor that can last until its removed from damage.
Overwatch is Blizzard’s own team-based first-person shooter game for Microsoft Windows PCs and gaming laptops, as well as XBox One and PlayStation 4.
