Rammatra has been revealed as the very first Hero to be added after the launch of Overwatch 2. Announced during the Overwatch League Grand Finals, the new Tank character will join the ranks on 6th December 2022 alongside the game's second season. You can view their origin story video above.
"Ramattra’s story is complex and multifaceted, and his ultimate goal is to protect his people—but the cost of that goal is still to be determined," reads an Activision Blizzard post. "Originally a war machine, Ramattra shed his munitions for a shield to protect his people by promoting peace and tranquility. His ideals weren’t far removed from his fellow Shambli monk, Zenyatta. However, Ramattra’s story is one of hardships, trauma, and a magnified view of humanity’s harsh realities."
The Tank will come in two states: a normal Omnic form and then a more powerful form called Nemesis. Rammatra fires projectiles out of a staff and creates barriers to protect his team in the standard form, but activate his Nemesis form and he whips out some powerful melee attacks. These heavy blows can punch straight through barriers, providing a counter to the likes of Winston and Zarya.
