The 29th hero to join the Overwatch roster, Ashe — also known as Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe — is a gunslinger hailing from the American Southwest. Armed with the Viper rifle, Ashe is a versatile damage hero, able to fire rapidly from the hip or line up a high-damage shot through her sights. She blasts enemies by throwing dynamite, and her coach gun packs a major punch, knocking foes or Ashe back for added mobility. And Ashe is not alone, calling her omnic ally Bob to join the fray when the need arises.
• The Viper: Ashe's lever-action rifle comes equipped with two firing modes: semi-automatic and aim-down-sight. In semi-automatic mode, the Viper shoots rapidly with a high spread. Aiming down the sights lets Ashe line up precise shots, increasing damage at the expense of speed.
• Coach Gun: Ashe's short-range, high-impact sidearm deals big damage and knocks back enemies nearby to clear the way. It can also be used to knock back Ashe for added mobility.
• Dynamite: Throw an explosive that detonates after a delay, dealing high damage to enemies and lighting them on fire. Ashe can also shoot the dynamite to detonate it early.
• B.O.B.: Ashe's ultimate ability summons her trusted omnic sidekick into battle. Bob rushes forward, knocks enemies into the air, and lays down suppressing fire with his arm cannons.
