No more teasing, Doomfist is playable on the Overwatch PTR now

Sure, Blizzard has Overwatch comics and videos, but it'd be great to see heroes like D.Va and Genji and Sombra and Tracer and everyone else get their own serialized television show. His passive skill, The Best Defense..., grants a shield when deals ability damage.

Doomfist's ultimate attack is called Meteor Strike, which looks to be a combination between the lunge of Winston's Jump Pack and the radial damage of Reinhardt's Earthshatter.

Doomfist is an Offense hero designed for close quarters combat and his abilities are naturally designed around that notion. This gauntlet is capable of short-range bursts, including a ground Seismic Slam attack and a Rocket Punch that sends enemies against the wall.

In a new Overwatch blog post, Blizzard has teased the community further about the character Doomfist. With this ability, he leaps into the air and then smashes into his target location, dealing significant area of effect damage.

Unfortunately for them, Doomfist isn't the type to go down without causing a whole mess of destruction. Overwatch already has two heroes who have also gone by the alias of Doomfist, but neither by the name of Ogundimu. However, it remains unclear whether the new Doomfist is a hero or a villain until Blizzard officially reveals the character.

Doomfist is an extremely offensive hero, but it doesn't mean he's without his weaknesses.

Doomfist has been teased for months, including when the new Numbani map was released, revealing the gauntlet's mysterious disappearance.

Aside from the origin story, more of Doomfist's background is also explained in the Developer Update, also seen below, along with an explanation of his abilities. Right now there's very little variation in team composition, especially at the professional level, which limits Overwatch's viability as an esport and breeds toxicity amongst its player base.

The official Blizzard post said: "Information and details of what happened were scarce as has been any news from the installation, said to be a prison for the world's most unsafe threats". When the options include FistGabe and Fister, you know this ship is gonna be good as hell.
