She’s a sup­port role, with her strengths gear toward armor and defense. She can also throw out Repair Packs for her team­mates or auto­mat­i­cal­ly heal near­by allies with her Flail. The Flail is her melee weapon, which strike mul­ti­ple ene­mies at once. 

Overwatch Adds 27th Hero to their PTR

You can see her full list of abil­i­ties below:

  • Rock­et Flail — Brigit­te’s melee weapon has an extend­ed range, enabling her to strike mul­ti­ple ene­mies with a sin­gle swing.
  • Repair Pack — Brigitte throws a Repair Pack that can heal an ally. Any heal­ing over that ally’s max­i­mum health pro­vides them with armor instead.
  • Whip Shot — Brigitte throws her flail a long dis­tance, deal­ing dam­age and knock­ing an ene­my away from her.
  • Bar­ri­er Shield — Brigitte deploys a frontal ener­gy bar­ri­er to absorb a lim­it­ed amount of dam­age.
  • Shield Bash — Once her Bar­ri­er Shield is deployed, Brigitte can dash for­ward to stun an ene­my.
  • Ral­ly — Brigitte moves faster and pro­vides all near­by allies with armor that lasts until it’s removed by dam­age.

Jeff Kaplan also released a devel­op­er update for Brigitte, giv­ing more info into her back­ground, abil­i­ties, and strat­e­gy. You can see his update below:
