Yesterday, Blizzard confirmed that the new hero joining Overwatch would be the combat medic Baptiste. Now, the developers have provided a short summary of the character's abilities.


Baptiste is a battle-hardened combat medic who wields an assortment of experimental devices and weaponry to keep allies alive and eliminate his enemies. Baptiste’s Biotic Launcher fires a three-round-burst that rewards accuracy and recoil control with significant damage output. His alternate fire lobs grenades that heal allies near the point of impact. With Regenerative Burst, Baptiste activates an intense surge that heals himself and nearby allies over time. When danger is near, Baptiste can toss out his Immortality Field to prevent allies from dying. Baptiste moves around the battlefield with Exo Boots, jumping over obstacles and clearing distances that would stop other heroes. Baptiste deploys his Amplification Matrix as his ultimate, which doubles the damage and healing effects of friendly projectiles.

Primary Fire: Biotic Launcher - Shoots a steady stream of bullets

Ability 1 / Regenerative Burst - Heals Allies in Aura
Ability 2 / Immorality Field - Deploys Barrier
