  • Baptiste confirmed as latest Overwatch hero – origin story video live now

To find out more about Baptiste, check out his abilities video below, followed by his origin video and some images of the new character. However, Talon was unforgiving and dispatched a team to eliminate Baptiste.

Endothermic Blaster (primary weapon) DPS increased from 45 to 55.

Regenerative Burst: Baptiste activates an intense regenerative burst that heals himself and nearby allies over time. The great thing about this ability is how you can leave his side as soon as you get hit with it. Getting healed over time isn't contingent on being near him.

Rising Uppercut cooldown reduced from 7 to 6 seconds. If you hold the button to crouch, you can charge up a jump, which you can then use to reposition yourself.

After teasing the release of a new hero last week, Baptiste has finally been revealed.

"We ran many internal tests on it".

Baptiste uses a device to create a field that prevents allies from dying. There are even more details in the full patch notes, so make sure you read them if you want to see all of the other changes now in play on the Overwatch PTR!

It's also targetable, so enemy players can destroy it. This will be a powerful counter to skills that instantly kill targets within AoE like D.Va's Self-Destruct or Junkrat's R.I.P Tire. Baptiste just has to be on hand to do some healing when it goes down.

SEC, not Musk's tweets, biggest threat to Tesla shares
In that interview, Musk revealed that no one at Tesla was screening the tweets he posts to his account, which now has 25 million followers.

His kit comes with multiple brand-new mechanics, with the likes of his Immortality Field and ultimate ability Amplification Matrix operating unlike anything else already in the game. It creates a window-like field that doubles any damage or healing effects from your allies' projectiles.

As a support character, Baptiste seems to slot somewhere between Ana and Lucio.

Baptiste isn't what people were expecting. He works dangerously well with other ranged heroes like Ana who are easy targets but can turn the tide in a game with a strong projectile.

GOATS has been dominating the meta for several months now. All in all, he seems like a really interesting, fun addition to Overwatch.

A lot of these observations are subject to change.

For now, there isn't a concrete release date for Baptiste. For now, Baptiste is looking like frontline support that can dish it out as well as he can take it.

I know it's reductive to think of a new Overwatch hero in terms of existing designs, but Baptiste makes me think of a cross between Junkrat's penchant for lobbing explosives, Ana's Biotic Grenade that creates a splash of healing for teammates, and Winston's Barrier Projector that offers unbelievable teamwide protection.
