Blizzard has revealed Doomfist as a new playable hero in Overwatch. Doomfist, hailing from Nigeria, is one of the leaders of Talon. He is an offense-based hero with strong melee power who is best placed at the front lines.
His main form of attack is the Hand Cannon, which is a four-shot weapon that shoots from Doomfist’s knuckles, either gathered into one powerful shot or one at a time. His secondary attack, Rocket Punch, propels him forward to deal damage to his opponents. The Rocket Punch will cause even more damage if the enemy is knocked into a wall.
Another attack, Seismic Smash, brings opponents to Doomfist from a targeted area and his Rising Uppercut tosses opponents high into the air. He also has a passive ability called The Best Defense. This ability gives him shields every time he uses one of his powers against an enemy.
Doomfist’s ultimate, aptly named Meteor Strike, launches him into a targeted area. As expected, this deals a substantial amount of damage.
Blizzard has shared the official origin story of the character, too. Watch the trailer above, and find out more about Doomfist here. We recently took a look back at Overwatch’s first year—check that out here.
