The Overwatch PTR has upgraded, and this update is extremely hot. To start with, after a lot of teasers, Hero 28 is finally here! He's a new tank which focuses on highly portable and tumultuous play with an extremely chaotic design.
Wrecking Ball's tinkering capabilities and iron-clad mech make him a formidable tank hero, capable of bowling through the front line of the resistance and causing mayhem at the rear line. His principal weapon, Quad Cannons, are just two sets of twin machine guns that shred enemies caught within their crosshairs. No staff is too much for Wrecking Ball to participate against with his Adaptive Shield, which generates more health based on the amount of enemies near. This protector makes him incredibly tough to kill if he bulldozes to the fray and, after he begins to get low on health, additionally provides him the endurance to escape. No barrier can stand at Wrecking Ball's way when he uses Grappling Claw, a short-range ability that grips the environment, allowing him swing over terrain gaps or round corners to crush enemies. Grappling Claw also enables Wrecking Ball to achieve top speed and ram into foes, coping damaging harm and knocking them back. While airborne, the mech's Piledriver ability causes Wrecking Ball to slam down in the air and knock his enemies off their feet.
When Wrecking Ball is at his most powerful, he can use Minefield that flings mines on the ground that deal a considerable amount of damage to enemies unfortunate enough to activate them.
This is not a significant change--especially compared to a new enthusiast, but it should normalize damage throughout the board and make various ranged heroes feel more consistent. It also ought to make poking a bit more viable, which is always nice, especially with a brand new tank on the spectacle.
The Overwatch PTR is, of course, a test realm, so all content on it's subject to change before hitting live servers.
Just a common player who started a overwatch themed blog.
