Blizzard Entertainment has announced Ana will be a new playable character coming to Overwatch soon. After hanging up her rifle for over seven years, one of Overwatch’s founding members is returning. Introducing Ana, a battle-scarred veteran who supports her teammates from a distance using a unique and highly specialized collection of weapons.
Ana’s primary weapon is her Biotic Rifle, which fires long-range darts that can restore the health of her allies or deal ongoing damage to her enemies. Meanwhile, her Biotic Grenade is perfect for a close-quarters clash, because it simultaneously heals teammates and injures foes caught in its small area of effect. (Affected allies will also receive a temporary increase to all incoming healing, whereas affected enemies can’t be healed for a few moments.) And if the battle starts to get out of hand, Ana’s side arm can fire a Sleep Dart, knocking her adversaries’ unconscious.
Plus, Ana’s ultimate ability, Nano Boost, transforms teammates into super soldiers, granting faster movement, increased damage, and resistance to enemy attacks.
