Introducing Overwatch’s newest hero: Orisa

Pin it

A brand-new character is now live on the Overwatch PTR! Orisa—the 24th hero and sixth tank to join the Overwatch lineup—is a four-legged robot designed by a brilliant 11-year-old engineer to keep the peace in Numbani.

Specially outfitted for maximum fortification and built from the scraps of the city’s decommissioned OR15 defense bots, Orisa is still learning how to optimally perform her function. But what she lacks in experience, she makes up for in dedication to keeping her city—and her creator, Efi—safe from harm.

Orisa’s abilities include:

  • Fusion Driver — A rapid-fire automatic gun that touts good range and accuracy even at a distance
  • Protective Barrier — Throw a device that creates a stationary shield, perfect for intercepting projectiles and protecting teammates
  • Supercharger — Orisa’s ultimate ability beams a buff to allies within range, increasing the damage they can inflict on the opposing team

You’ll find more on Orisa, including her origins story, in this blog post. And be sure to watch our latest Developer Update video, as Game Director Jeff Kaplan gives an overview of the new hero.
