Blizzard stealth released hero 29 Ashe earlier today as part of Overwatch patch 1.30. The new hero is yet another damage (DPS) character, her primary guns is called the Viper. The gun functions at both close range and at long distances as a weaker version of Widowmaker’s sniper.
She can throw a clump of dynamite as one of her specials, which damages players over time if they’re caught in the delayed explosion. Her other special is a shotgun that can propel her and her enemies away from the blast, which should make for some exciting and creative plays. When Ashe activates her ultimate she summons her sidekick, a bulky robot named Bob, who runs around the stage shooting other players.
You can see the detailed updates to the game and other characters (is that a Mercy buff in there?!) in the video below or check out PlayOverwatch.com for the full patch notes.

Word player, note manipulator, and logic breaker. My favorite game is The Last of Us. I’ll argue with you about it all day. Try me. “To the edge of the universe and back, endure and survive…”
