Finally, the wait is over for the Overwatch fans as Doomfist has arrived. He went live on the Public Test Realm (PTR) and has brought along a new story trailer with him.

Check out this story trailer.

Backstory aside, a video from Overwatch Central shows a concise breakdown of Doomfist’s abilities and they are impressive.

Hand cannon

Shotgun style, infinite range weapon with spread. No damage fall-off. Reloads automatically.
– 6 pellets fired, 11 damage per pellet.
– 4 shot ammo capacity.

Rising Uppercut

A close range punch that knock an enemy up and back.
– Damage: 50.
– Cool down: 7 seconds.

Seismic Slam

Leap forward and smash the ground.
Damage: 40-125.
– Cool down: 7 seconds.

Rocket Punch

Hold to charge then release to launch forward and knock an enemy back. Damage increases if the enemy hits a wall.
– Damage: 49-100 on hit, plus +50-150 if target gets knocked into a wall.
– Cool down: 4 seconds.

Meteor Strike

Leap up into the air. Move the targeting circle, then press primary fire to strike the targeted area.
Damage: 300 at center (drop off on the edges).
– Area of effect: ~7 meters.
– Charge required: 1500 points.

The Best Defense…

Dealing damage with abilities creates temporary personal shields.
– Passive.
– Health: +30 barriers per enemy hit with any of the three abilities, +75 barriers per enemy hit with ultimate ability. Maximum of 150.
– Duration: 1 second delay, -3 barriers per second

The rocket punch looks quite daunting from the opponent’s perspective. But overall, Blizzard has done justice to Doomfist’s abilities.

Although, the anticipation paid-off to some extent, the fans are feeling disappointed for one particular reason. Earlier this year, Terry Crews stated that he’ll do the voice over for Doomfist. But clearly that’s not the case here. It seems there have been some changes in plans and Terry Crews’s involvement in Overwatch has went back to being a mystery.
