Overwatch new playable character Ashe introduced in animated short Reunion

A lot of announcements have come out of Blizzcon 2018 so far, but the funnest and most freaky might be the announcement of a cereal based on a joke from Overwatch. Our old pal McCree has a squabble on Route 66 with the Deadlock Gang and its leader, Ashe, who as it turns out is the game's newest hero.

The Viper: Ashe's semi-automatic rifle fires quick shots, or she can use her aim-down sights for a more damaging, precise shot.

"She blasts enemies by throwing dynamite, and her coach gun packs enough punch to put some distance between her and her foes".

In celebration of BlizzCon, the Overwatch team released a brand new short centering around everyone's favorite anachronistic cyborg cowboy, Jesse McCree. 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. When playing Ashe, you can either reload it all the way or stop after reloading a few bullets to quickly open fire. Like Ashe, Echo has some sort of connection to McCree, so I get the feeling we'll see her again. The dynamite can be thrown and will detonate after a short period or shot to detonate immediately.

When she needs to, Ashe can call on B.O.B, an adorable mustachioed robot sidekick. When using her ult, B.O.B will jump in front of Ashe and run forward; he will knock up the first targets he runs into then stop to shoot.
