It is time for a new hero to make his mark in Overwatch and that man is Baptiste. As a child, he lost everything to the Omnic Wars. He did what he had to do in order to survive, but now he wants to do more for the world and leave his dark past behind him.
Seriously this dude sounds awesome and PC players can actually check him out right now so make sure you do. As I play this on Xbox One I will have to wait, which hopefully will not be too long.
He is a medic, but he can more than hold his own in battle. His abilities are very impressive and I can see the folks at Blizzard making some changes before he is fully released. One of his abilities is his Exo Boots that let him jump really high, but it is the other two I am very excited to try out.
First up we have Regenerative Burst. This is a healing move that heals him and teammates nearby. Unlike Soldier 76 though, once his Regenerative Burst has unleashed any player it hits does not have to stay close to him to keep being healed. They will keep being healed even if they walk away.
Immortality Field is one of the most overpowered abilities in the game so far! This is like a big force field and any teammates who are inside it cannot have their health go below 20 percent! This is insane and it is an ability that surely will come in very handy when you are trying to take the point. As of right now, it lasts for around 8 seconds, but this will probably change before it is fully released.
His Ultimate Ability is the Amplification Matrix. When he puts this up anything that your team puts through it will have its damage doubled. This means some attacks will dish out huge, huge damage when they go through it. It is also worth noting that healing items going through this will be doubled too.
I am very excited to get the chance to play as Baptiste and think he sounds like a fun healer to play as.
