Overwatch: Blizzard Releases New Gameplay Footage of Widowmaker
The itsy-bitsy spider has a perfect shot on your head
This week’s newest hero video (after Winston) features the sniper Widowmaker.
Widowmaker is an assassin and is classified on the Overwatch website as being a defensive class. Good positioning is the name of her game since anything other than that will get you killed before you can make yourself useful to your team.
She is a long range class and specializes in picking off targets from a long distance with her rifle. The rifle itself is named the Widow’s Kiss and fires a high damaging bullet when scoped, and becomes an assault rifle with low damage but a high fire rate when not scoped.
Her movement ability is a grappling hook which can be used to get into high perches to pick off targets from, or as an emergency escape into terrain not many characters can follow her into.
The Venom mine allows Widowmaker to cover her entrances and exits while dealing high damage to an opponent.
