Overwatch has a new hero, Sigma

  • 2212

Overwatch's 31st hero is SIgma, the 62 year old Astrophysicist, but he is a Tank in-game: "Sigma is an eccentric astrophysicist and volatile tank who gained the power to control gravity in an orbital experiment gone wrong. Manipulated by Talon and deployed as a living weapon, Sigma’s presence on the battlefield cannot be ignored." Sigma serves Talon, the main antagonistic faction in the game. You can read his full story here.

You can see his abilities below:


Sigma launches two gravitic charges, which bounce off walls and implode after a short duration, damaging enemies within a sizable radius


Sigma propels a floating barrier to a location of his choosing. He can dismiss the barrier at any time.


Sigma freezes incoming projectiles in midair, converting them into shields.


Sigma gathers a mass of debris and flings it at an enemy to knock them down.


Unleashing his full powers, Sigma takes flight, lifts enemies in a targeted area, and launches them into the sky before slamming them back down.
