Rise up and be remembered. Witness the return of one of Talon’s leaders: Doomfist!
The internet has long been at a fever pitch for perhaps the earliest rumored Overwatch hero – Even the original trailer hinted at some unstoppable force that answered to the name ‘Doomfist’. As of today, we finally get to step into the shoes – and mighty glove – of the man himself.
Akande Ogundimu is the latest to wield the devastating ‘Doomfist’ device, and holds a high ranking position within the Talon organisation that serves as the ‘bad guys’ in Overwatch lore.
With an interesting philosophy regarding the human race needing conflict to get stronger, it appears he is more than happy to lead by example – designed as a character that will spend the majority of his time in-game very much in your face.
He also has shotgun knuckles, so that’s sure a thing.
Doom fist has his official bio now live on the Overwatch Website, with the following snippet:
Doomfist’s cybernetics make him a highly-mobile, powerful frontline fighter. In addition to dealing ranged damage with his Hand Cannon, Doomfist can slam the ground, knock enemies into the air and off balance, or charge into the fray with his Rocket Punch. When facing a tightly packed group, Doomfist leaps out of view, then crashes down to earth with a spectacular Meteor Strike.
I am trapped at work, so I am yet to get involved – but every bit of Doomfist media so far has revealed that if you feel your enemies are hungry for a knuckle sandwich, you better call Doomfist catering – I have heard they deliver right to your face.
