Orisa, the sixth tank hero to join the Overwatch roster, is now available for all players across all platforms, as part of update 126.96.36.199. on PC or update 188.8.131.52 on PS4 and Xbox One.
The reprogrammed OR15 defense bot is still relatively new to the world of Overwatch, but she packs some interesting abilities that are sure to make her a great addition.
As a tank, Orisa is built around protecting other players. Her main weapon is the Fusion Driver, an automatic gun with good range and accuracy even at a distance. While it has a decent firing rate, the Fusion Driver takes a moment to reload, and Orisa’s movement slows down while she fires or reloads.
Her alternate fire is Halt!, and it fires a graviton charge slows down enemies as it passes, then pulling them toward it when it detonates. It can especially useful for pulling enemies around corners, or even off the map, and get a bunch of them in one spot so offense players can hit them hard all at once.
Then we have her Fortify ability, which reduces the damage she takes and makes her unstoppable for a short time. Protective Barrier created a stationary energy barrier tht protects for incoming projectiles but lets allies fire through it. This shield can be deployed pretty much anywhere, not just in front of Orisa, which makes it pretty versatile.
Finally, he have Orisa’s ultimate, the Supercharger. This small devices give a damage buff to all allies in its line of sight. Combined with the Protective Barrier, a team can gather around Orisa and dish out a massive around of damage while staying sage from harm.
