Wrecking Ball will be the 28th playable hero in Overwatch. He is an extremely mobile tank who uses his grappling claw and piledriver abilities to cause havoc wherever he goes. To survive longer in battle, he can use his adaptive shields which give him a temporary health boost (depending on number of enemies nearby), or just try to roll away in his ball form. His ultimate ability “Minefield” can deny his enemies valuable territory.
You can find out more about the furry new hero on the game’s official website.
