Overwatch’s 27th Hero is an Armor-clad Engineer Brigitte Lindholm

After a few days of teasing, Blizzard finally unveiled the newest hero to join their ever-growing roster as an armor-clad support character name Brigitte Lindholm. She is the 27th character of the game and was introduced by Overwatch’s Creative Director Jeff Kaplan in the recent developer update. 


The character has been introduced as the daughter of Torbjorn, she initially started as an engineer and later became a valiant squire of Reinhardt to serve and protect her allies on the front line. Check Briggit’s origin story-


Here’s Brigitte in Blizzard’s words-

The daughter of weapons designer, Torbjörn Lindholm, Brigitte was the first of his children to show an interest in mechanical engineering. Brigitte spent much of her spare time in her father’s workshop, learning the trade and honing her skills. Her aptitude for engineering mirrored that of her father’s, but Brigitte’s primary interest was in armor fabrication and defensive systems, unlike Torbjörn, who was world renowned (and perhaps infamous) for the weapons he created.

Brigitte specializes in armor and defense. She can throw Repair Packs to heal teammates, or automatically heal nearby allies when she damages foes with her Flail. Her Flail is capable of a wide swing to strike multiple targets, or a Whip Shot that stuns an enemy at range. When entering the fray, Barrier Shield provides personal defense while she attacks enemies with Shield Bash. Brigitte’s ultimate ability, Rally, gives her a substantial short-term boost of speed and provides long-lasting armor to all her nearby allies. 

As per the official description, Brigitte is up with powerful a rocket flail, whip shot, repair pack, barrier shield, inspire, rally and shield bash. She is sure an interesting addition that will add more value and gravity to the game. 

Blizzard states Brigitte is live on the game’s test servers, and soon will be available to everyone else.
