Doomfist Officially Arrives in Overwatch as Latest Hero

The news that every Overwatch player has been waiting for is finally here. Doomfist is now officially the latest hero added to the roster, announced in the July 6 developer update. The character is the 25th hero in the title and hails from Nigeria, West Africa. The announcement is a long time coming since he has been teased ever since the original cinematic trailer. He is an assault-class hero working for the Talon organization with Reaper.

In terms of combat capabilities, he obviously makes use of his eponymous weapon. This gauntlet is capable of short-range bursts, including a ground Seismic Slam attack and a Rocket Punch that sends enemies against the wall. He also has defensive capabilities in the form of a personal shield. Doomfist’s Ultimate involves the character leaping into the air and smashing down for a wide area damage.
