Taiwan Blizzard released the production team’s introduction video of the new hero “Ramata” in “Overwatch 2” today (29th), which also allows players to get a glimpse of the leader of this zero quadrant.
Ramata is the newest tank hero, having been in the works since 2017 when “Quadrant Zero” was first conceived. This appearance refers to the omnic leader of the Egyptian Pharaoh, who has two types: “omninic form” and “revenge form”.
In omnic mode, Ramata uses the cane nanorobot to attack from a long distance, with slow flight speed but fixed damage. The omnic form can also create a “void barrier” like a shield wall, which is durable but doesn’t last long.
After converting to “Vengeance Mode”, Ramata will use short range punches as the main attack method, which can cause damage from a certain distance. At the same time, the fist can also be used to block from the front, but at this time, the damage to the back increases and the movement speed is reduced.
An ability that can be used by both forms is Ravenous Vortex, which causes an area of slow and area of damage that pulls down.
The ultimate move “Annihilation” will be forced to turn into revenge mode, and will continuously damage the enemies in the range focused on itself. Therefore, how to make good use of the change between the two types will be the focus of the player’s game.
Ramata is set to launch with the second season on December 7th.
