Overwatch 2 Reworks Orisa
Orisa has been reworked as well starting with her Augmented Fusion Driver. It now rapidly fires large projectiles when fired, but will shrink down as it travels. It will now use a heat mechanic instead of ammo/reload.
The Energy Javelin can be launched at an enemy to stun and knock them back. It will be more effective if the enemy will hit a wall.
The Fortify ability can now gain 125 temporary health when activated. It is now slowed by 20 percent when it is active. It also reduced heat generated from firing by 50 percent while active.
Orisa can use the Javelin Spin to her advantage. It can be used to destroy projectiles, push enemies, and increase the forward speed.
The Ultimate ability Terra Surge will sweep in enemies and anchor down. She will gain the effects of Fortify and charging up a surge of damage. In order to unleash the surge early, use Primary Fire.
There are three abilities that got removed. These are Protective Barrier, Halt!, and Supercharger.
Overwatch 2 is still in development. It will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
