Overwatch’s Latest Hero Is Out Now On The PTR

Can the pro-scene GOATS meta finally get a shake up?

Eh, probably not. But a man can dream!

The thirtieth Overwatch hero, Jean-Baptiste Augustin is a roller coaster of fun to play and is now available to take for a spin on the Overwatch PTR!

Popping skulls and applying band-aids, Baptiste is a combat medic and former Talon operative who basically said fuck this and joined the good fight. Good dude Baptiste jumps into the fray with a plethora of gadgets to dish out healing/damage buffs from all angles of the battlefield.

Abilities

Biotic Launcher
Baptiste’s three-round-burst Biotic Launcher rewards accuracy and recoil control with significant damage output. It also doubles as a healing device, lobbing projectiles that heal allies near the point of impact.

Regenerative Burst
Baptiste activates an intense regenerative burst that heals himself and nearby allies over time.

Immortality Field
Baptiste uses a device to create a field that prevents allies from dying. The generator can be destroyed.

Amplification Matrix (Ultimate)
Baptiste creates a matrix that doubles the damage and healing effects of friendly projectiles that pass through it.

Exo Boots (Passive)
By first crouching, Baptiste can jump higher.

Although he has been gaming since the Sega Mega Drive launched in 1990, he still sucks at most games. When not being trash he watches French horror films, drinks herbal tea and secretly loves the music of Taylor Swift.
