Hero 27, Brigitte Lindholm Is Overwatch’s Newest Support Hero

After teasing her for a bit, Overwatch has finally unveiled hero 27 Brigitte Lindholm. She is now playable in the PC Public Test Realm of the game. You might recognize the surname Lindholm, as she is the daughter of Torbjörn. In combat, Brigitte's main weapon is a close-range rocket flail. Her Whip Shot ability has a longer range by swinging the flail forward, knocking back enemies. Like Reinhardt, Brigitte can deploy a barrier, but can use the Shield Bash ability to run past it and stun the first enemy she hits. She can also lay down repair packs to heal her allies. Allies with full health gain additional armor. Her ultimate ability, Rally, creates a substantial amount of armor for her allies, and lets her move much more quickly. Check out her origin story trailer below. 

UPDATE 3/17/2018 - Brigitte Lindholm will be available to play across all platforms on March 20.
