Overwatch's new hero Ashe debuts in animated short

Ashe is the leader of the Deadlock Gang, the group of thieves which McCree was once a part of before joining Blackwatch.

Introduced in the animated short "Reunion", Ashe attempts to hold her own against Jessie McCree before getting defeated. Actually giving some context to why the map is shaped the way it is - the gang is known as Deadlock led by the white-haired outlaw Ashe used explosives to destroy the train - has a shootout with said outlaws who he supposedly has had previous encounters with. Her semi automatic rifle is called the Viper and players can either use the scope for more accurate shots or without the scope for faster ones. The vast pushback can propel her into the air if shot at the ground and it can also push enemies away too similarly to Brigitte's flail.

She is the new playable character, and her robot pal Bob will be her Ultimate.

This is definitely a DPS kit with a high skill ceiling. But be aware that it also pushes you back if you shoot it at an enemy.

We will update this post with more details, like her approximate release date. Echo, a robotic member of Overwatch that had been "turned-off" for quite some time, was locked inside the mysterious container McCree and Ashe were fighting over.

"You've never been one to shy away from a good tip", McCree cracked, noting that he wants the crate that Ashe and Bob before the conversation quickly devolves into a standoff between McCree and the others.
